Needle 26 Zoom in CIS
Imagine being transported by the impetuous current of a river, to overcome steep rapids with only a brief moment of rest and be protected against this nature that wants to hit you at all costs by only a wetsuit, a pair of fins, vest flotation and small floating bob
Well, this is the hydrospeed and this is what can be funny or scary, you do
We are located on the Black River, downstream of the cascade of marmore and the road ahead is virtually the same as that made in the dinghy rafting tour I did in May (and that only now I realize that I gave notice avervene )
Except that obviously now you are no longer protected by the cocoon of the boat but are directly immersed in the fluid that seems to want to avenge last time.
The day starts 10.00 am, at the Rafting Center "The Marmore" , where you pay, 45 euro if you are not already registered association or 35, like me, if you have already done another activity during the year and are therefore regularly members.
Just enough time to take a helmet, buoyancy vest, fins, hydro speed, wetsuit, neoprene boots and jacket, and we are on the lawn in front of the local association to try to assimilate the basics of hydro use in water even if it out of the water, wearing a 5mm wetsuit in a hot August morning is a pain, that is, to the limits.
The notion of using hydro-I transposed these are substantial:
- The point is our hydro-finder, where she points even if we go, having to take into account the current need to focus much more upstream.
- The 'hydrospeed you take it with both hands and maneuver but hangs with the elbow
- When handling the current perpendicular to the upstream side is slightly raised hydro-pressing with his elbow on the opposite side in order to offer the least possible resistance to water
- The angle arm / forearm should be greater than 90 ° in order to download dall'hydrospeed weight and do less work during the pinnate. The only exception during the descent through the rapids to "engine off" where this angle is reduced to less than 90 ° to increase the weight and gain stability sull'hydrospeed
- If you are pushed against the rocks, hydro-speed should focus on the opposite side so you get a foot on the rocks and allow you to use your feet to push away from rocks. If hydrospeed is pushed against the rocks, sticks to us against and the only way out is to rotate about themselves and post hydrospeed toward the center of the river.
But above all, rule I learned in water, especially for someone like me, a beginner can not compensate with a proper technique is essential to have on board an "engine" that is powerful to have good strength in my legs because the trajectories are won the sweat of the brow and the strength of the fin.
That's why I tell you now that the hydro-speed, in contrast to the raft, not a sport for everyone. We need a good workout and strength in the right muscles. Keep in mind that I, even jogging, spinning, gym, hiking I resisted for less than half of the course and then I was almost a pack at the mercy of the waves.
The video above, for example, has been taken in the first part of the course when I was still wet and then setting the trajectory has been relatively good
but I can assure you that at the end of the session is not even nearly riuscino risalile to the bank of the river for three days I could hardly bend his legs.
That's why the first reaction was hot, "Nevermore." But the second was cold: "Never again without proper training" and, next year, from March you prepare in the pool with fins and tablet.
So if you want to do hydrospeed, get at least some of the first pool session. Not that anything will happen, just have more fun, because you will not be at the mercy of nature, but that will shape the nature is in your hands, or rather, on your feet
This year I have only the photos taken by the photographer association in one of the most beautiful in the path, a point where the river makes a triple jump with him and you
And that all the moments of the jump
If you want to see a video of the important parts of the trail, as it is lived from within, in this video sums up what I did although it was not created by me, but I assure you that emotions are the same.
Next year I promise to make a video of my own.
Needle 17 I go on Mount Brancastello Horn at night
What I want to tell you today is a beautiful hike, performed at night in the night between 13 and 14 August, which took us from the plain of Campo Imperatore , I go through the horn, right up to the summit of Mount Brancastello .
Saturday I, Maury , alexia , and Virna went vinz dell'Infernaccio gorges. Another beautiful day with the sun, friends and the mountain. Much of the information on these sites can be found on my article last year that told the all'infernaccio trip with family in tow.
What is particularly successful than last year? First arrival at Pisciarello a surprise. From a distance it looked as if he had swallowed a hill and the old path is not. What looked like the earth is instead a huge avalanche of snow fall in winter that still does not dissolve and that has created a bridge between the right and left sides of the throat.
Behold, as it appeared at the first input
and here as it is now
Maury said that in June and the hole was much, much smaller. See that brown stuff? And 'all ice. Cool.
Again, we have brought the nost Tux, which was seen on the steps of the hermitage of San Leonardo
to take a bath on the hidden waterfall
and has made friends with a cute pet: the Alpine rosalia
All the photos of the day and a video of a guy who lies naked on the river can be found on my album also contains photos taken by Vinz.
More photos on the album by Maury.
In the end a beautiful day and beautiful places that I recommend to everyone, including children as the route, at least up to the hermitage, it is highly recommended for a nice family outing as the steps are very simple and takes virtually all hikers.
Needle 05 Leaving a dog kills you
While in Naples citizens must equip themselves in the most disparate (and desperate) for groped to solve the problem of litter in the street, in another country, not too far, Norway, the waste instead you pay them at the supermarket.
As the guy in the video, in Norway, you must be careful not to leave the garbage in the street because otherwise, I'll steal.
Eye, Norway is not to be strange, we are the black sheep.
