3rd time is a charm i hope.....

this is a 158mb video file(.3gp),made on 2/13/13,approx one month after his service----part of his ashes stayed in Grand Junction,at the Western Colorado Veterans Memorial Cemetery,and the rest were driven to the Navajo Bridge,by his friends Don,Cap'n Bill,and Kevin,so Bill could do his final put-in.I would like to think the angel rangers knew he was coming home,and waved him thru w/o a permit,just this once.......They drove from Steamboat and GJ,to the Big Ditch,just to pay final respects to Bill.

Many folks have asked this to be posted here on the 'buzz where he grabbed many a trip with strangers,who became his friends.

part of my difficulty in uploading this might relate to this----this video was created on a Win7 laptop,and im trying to u/l with old WinXP,on a 1.2mb DSL connection(this vid makes my machine crash,when i try to watch it offline).ive been hit up by folks,who are better at IT than me,who tell me if i can at least u/l it here,they can make it work.

so here goes another attempt.....right now im 20 min into it and 47%.......
