It is said of men of a certain age that the memory is the second thing to go. While I will neither confirm nor deny the veracity of that statement I will use it as a suitable excuse for having forgotten all about entering the contest.
Some time ago Dennis Kirk ran a Tales From The Trails contest for the best riding story. I don’t normally enter contests but for some reason this one caught my attention, mainly because I had my ‘Tale From The Trail’ all ready to go. I submitted “The ladies’ is broken.” and promptly forgot all about it.
Until last week when I got an email from Dennis Kirk. It took me a while to make sense of it but once the cobwebs cleared and the synapses stared firing I (vaguely) remembered entering their contest a month or so ago. And it’s a good thing I did because I am now the official winner of their Tales From The Trails contest and am (or will soon be, whenever the postal service delivers) the proud owner of a GoPro Hero3 Black Edition.
I can’t wait to see the advances in this camera since my original Hero. And just in time for summer riding too!
