EDIT, with new links to Youtube videos
So here it is at last, Ive been pulling my hair out over this :twisted: :? ...major problems getting it as a movie on my PC, 2 days later (EDIT 3 days), after many many failed attempts I've sorted it...to a degree....instead of one nice little 8 or 9 minute video, I've had to do it in 6 segments, and cut the quality down somewhat, not ideal but with so many looking forward to it I felt I had to sort it out one way or another, in fact I would have given up otherwise.
But it is pretty good despite the foul weather at times, but you lot can be the judge on that.....
Oh, and for us old rockers there's a great soundtrack, from the brilliant Zep :D (EDIT. that was the problem why no one could look at it, unless you were in USA, so I have quickly replaced it with a new one, which is repeated for each one, sorry about that, but just want to get it sorted and out of the way now)
Despite the weather it was a great day, and weekend, thanks to you all that attended at some stage or another.
If I've missed out anyone on the walk, blame Stretch :D as he PM'ed me with your names....I am as bad at remembering names as sorting out PC problems :?
While I'm on I must thank & praise Stretch for all his work in getting this on the road, top man, and he never tripped or pushed anyone in a friendly fire type of way :wink:
Finally I hope no one is offended by the Credits at the end....if you are tuff! :lol:

Part 1.


Part 2.


Part 3.


Part 4.


Part 5.


Part 6.


I'm off for a lie down now and a handfull of aspirin's :problem:

PS I've got a few other picture montages video's on youtube also....if anyone is interested.:?

Hi Alun

I'm not able to view your videos due to this message - "This video contains content from WMG, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds."

I may be wrong/stupid but I think it probably relates to the music on the videos :? .

I can't view it while I'm over here anyways. This is what happens when you try and blame the US for everything :lol: :lol: . The anticipation of seeing this now grows even more. I'm just hoping I remembered everyone who came :shifty:

In my haste of posting a reply and frustration, I meant when you are back over the pond, and for your friends and family to see now. I am busy downloading to youtube now with different soundtrack, so should be live and edited again later!!!???

Excellent Alan, thanks for all the hard work putting the vid together. What I like most about it is the fact that we all have smiles on our faces before the scramble and again at the point where we found the bridge and path. Nicely done with the credits as well!!

Absolutely ace-- something special and atmospheric about it. I really really wish I had been there. I think you've got a job for the life of Walkhighlands which I hope is a very long time.

After further review, the 6 parts looks better than the stitched up version. Kudos again to Mountainstar.
