At this point I noticed a new AT approaching from behind & made sure I tried to keep my helmet pointing in his direction in the hope to get some nice footage as he passed.... He didn't disappoint as on video....it seriously looks frikking AWESOME as he politely made his mark by leaving a really nice loooooooooong roost trail behind him as he disappeared into the distance up ahead. :ricky: :ricky: ;D :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft:

Very nicely done & thanks for putting on a nice show.  ;)
