Cool stuff, is the "Range Life" going to be at Paddle Fest? Is everyone loading this with ease on their computer?

Sorry for the slow response, but to answer some questions above:

At this point, none of theRangeLife contributors are planning to attend, however, there will be some of the friends of the Range Life there. The entire CKS crew being one of them. Also, there will be the premiere of a new short film featuring Rocky Mountain Footage at the PaddleFest.

The first drop on the Teaser-mercial is a tributary to the Clarks Fork in Wyoming. Its on the Honeymooner's stretch (i think), upstream and on the opposite side of the river as Crandall Creek. Its common when running this stretch of the clark's fork to stop, hike up and run this slide which splashes down into the clark's fork. Very fun. There is some more footage of this slide and the Clark's fork on the short we are making, so try to make it to the paddlefest to check it out.
