My Bud Did Not Blink - Tombstone - GoPro Goes Flying

by eric 22. August 2014 15:44

So me and my buddy Mike decide to take a ride down to Tombstone. The day we are going to leave it's raining and it's raining pretty hard. So I'm waiting for the call from Mike, you know the call do you really think we should go on this trip? Well Mike shows up at 8am dressed in rain gear it's pouring out and it looks like we might get some clear weather in a 100 or so miles. No such luck, 325 miles of rain or wet. Turn on the news after arriving in Tombstone and it turns out there was major rain all over the state. At least when we got to Tombstone it stop raining for a while, we did the tourist thing and had a decent dinner.

 

 

On the way back we had good weather except for about 20 miles of light rain. I noticed that my GoPro camera seemed to be shaking around a bit, more than normal. I only had about 6 miles to go and kept riding. Of course the mount broke and I was able to catch it momentarily with my foot and give it a little punt away from the bike. It hit the ground and I saw it explode into pieces, I was bummed. Well it turned out the case did its job, found the battery, camera, LCD back and it was still working. So now I'm bummed because I lost the memory card and I think I had some good video of the walls of water we were riding in. Need a new case, but I'm impressed that it survived the impact at 60 mph.
