Driving up to look at the ATV damage on the south forty

Yeah, another one of my videos from the roof of the car.  Why all these pretty boring videos?, you may ask.  Well, spend any time on YouTube?  If you have, you would notice that there are a lot, millions, of boring videos that seem to get a ton of hits.  I just figure that if I keep putting crap up there, one of them eventually has to go viral.

I can't believe I just spent 10 minutes watching you drive from a sickenly off-center POV.
Stunning action sequences, riveting dialogue. What more could you want? Except maybe an ending. What was the string at the end? And the lost dog part would've made more sense if the viewer could've seen whatever you were clicking stills of in that part.

Hey, so I'm no Francis Ford Coppola, or even Steven Spielberg for that matter. I kind of take these videos just to see what I get, and post them just because.
As for the two things you asked about;
The still pictures were of the missing dog poster I mentioned in an earlier post. ( http://www.srossi.net/2010/07/BOB/BOB07.jpg )
The string at the end of the video was put there by the people who own the property just uphill of ours. It was their attempt at preventing new roads on their property, and simply encouraged the trespassers to go to the other side of the field.
Sorry I wasted those 10 minutes, but the good news is that it's the last one.

Hey, you don't have to apologize; it's not like you tied me down and forced me to watch it. I just was hoping to see where the actual damage was. Maybe I'm just disappointed because your post title was slightly misleading -- and I'm (virtually) pissed at the jerks who've been trespassing on your property, so I thought I was going to see it -- and all it is is you driving there.
Hey, I could never do that with a video, though, so you're way ahead of me.

Cool. But I will take your advice and give a better description of what you're going to see in the future.
You do kind of see the damage the dumbass ATV'ers did. That last turn, right before we run into the rope across the road - that road was not there last year. It was created by people driving over untrampled land until it kills enough of the plant life to create a road. There is another one on the other side of the field, it was created after the neighbors blocked the road with the rope.
Oh, and I do appreciate your virtual commiseration.

Yeah, but when all you've got is a camera on top of a car and half-hearable conversation in the background, it's kind of hard to tell. But thanks for telling me now.
