Salem Lake Urban Gravel Assault - A Gravel Ride Adventure

The day started off a little rainy and chilly, but that's OK... cause where we are going, it keeps the crowds low!

This video I joined up with Pedal Vision's Greg for some fun laps around the Salem Lake in Winston Salem. We do explore out from around the lake, taking the Salem Creek Trail to Quarry at Grant Park. It has this awesome views over the water filled quarry of downtown Winston Salem, NC.

We headed up Long Branch Trail and explored some downtown sites and cruised around some of the local downtown attractions. From there we navigated the Strollway from downtown back to the Salem Creek Greenway. Checked out the wooden bridge at Old Salem and went back on our way on the greenway. 

We finished the ride out by doing some hot laps around Salem Lake again and taking it back to the car. You can see in the video that we had a blast. 

If you like the video, please give it a thumbs up, and also while you are at it, subscribe to the channel for more gravel adventures videos in the future.

Red Sky Teardrop Camper Build Ep. 3

 In Episode 3 we are cutting the hole for the window and then cutting the template. We used a top bearing flush router bit to do this. Things went really smooth today on this build for sure. It won't be too long before this will start to look like a camper.

Mike describes the Kreg Track Saw that he uses for cutting straight lines without the use of  a table saw. You can see in the video that Mike decided that the smaller windows will work better in this application. Red Sky Campers uses Baltic Birch plywood for its builds. 

Once the window and door are finally cut, we take another one of the side pieces and place the ones with the holes on top and will use it as template. This template will be used for another camper build as well as possibly my camper build as well.
