Three Videos by Paul Glasspoole at IBX 2016 - OBE added 05/02/16

I took over 80 videos while at IBX 2016. After spending a month going through them all, I have compiled my favorite portions into three videos.

The first I have titled "The life of a Kite Buggy helmet". It has a lonely life when left in the buggy seat. However, the view is spectacular.



Next is what I would classify as the REASON we all go to IBX. To fly our kites, yes. However, it is a LOT more fun to be with the people. This video contains all my favorite rides with my friends.

The third video is my showing off by going fast. But, there are a few mistakes included so that I can keep my humble reputation.


The fourth is of the unfortunate Out Of Buggy Experience (OBE) of my friend John. Looking at the video, I can see that I was a good friend...First, save the kite,. Second, make sure he is ok.


I hope you enjoy watching as much as I had making the videos!

How can I get the video embedded rather than just a link?

Great videos thanks for posting them. Makes me want to turn around and go back now. Thanks:P

First and foremost, your videos brought back such fond memories! As fun as it is to buggy on the playa it is made 1000 fold better with friends.

I was cracking up that you muted out the sound in the tangles footage. I imagine a few choice words were spoken! :lol:

How to embed the video: 1) when in YouTube copy the link to the video; 2) in your PKF thread put your cursor where you want the video to go and then click on the little YouTube button right above the text box; 3) a pop-up box will ask you for the link; 4) paste in what you copied back in YouTube; 5) erase the text that precedes the forward slash leaving only the number and letter unique identifier; 6) press ok to close the box.

In this example, this is what copying the link saved in YouTube: "http://youtu.be/57f-WDB2biQ". You want to erase the stuff before the "5" in the PKF box asking for the link.

I have a fourth where a friend was ejected from his buggy. But I want his permission before sharing it here. Stay tuned...perhaps there will be a fourth posting!



I heard about this OBE. Amazing that you got it on film. Thank goodness for his "plastic courage" or it could have gone worse for him! ;)

Those were fun vids to watch - some quick kite and buggy skills steering in and around and chasing and untangling. Anyone that has been to ride the playa can relive every second as many moments feel so familiar - great!

I had to go rinse off the dust after watching those. Mark is right. All that and more happens to everyone out there. And sometimes the tangles and twists don't t shake out. On your fast run you were doing everything right and doing the same things that with the right wind and kite could take you much faster. You've been in the upper 40s now so 50 won't feel that much different. All my PBs were in 2-5 mph increments. Doing it that way, you are never far out of your comfort zone and familiarity. :thumbup::thumbup:

nice ride thanks ! cool rolling save

Awesome week, you've captured the essence of Ivanpah. Sweet skills :thumbup::wee:

RedSky - 4-30-2016 at 04:56 PM

The sweet sound of wind and the hum of frame and wheels is all the music we needed. Glad you kept it simple. Its like being right there with you.

Thanks gents!

I am very proud of these videos since they do, in my opinion, show what a cool event the IBX guys put on so we can all do exactly what I show in the videos.

They open the gate to the playground and we play all day and night!

Bladerunner - 5-1-2016 at 10:24 AM

I am super impressed by your top speeds. What kind of buggy were you in? Looked like a pretty light buggy for such high speeds?

As Bob said, good videos for seeing how to do things right! Not just how you scrubbed off and make speed. The way you let go, caught up to and reset your kite was text book! Who needs kite killers when you can just chase your kite down! :cool2:

Also a good example of how in one trip ( heck one day ) to Ivanpah you can be outrunning dust devils one minute then standing like a bunch of Meer cat's looking for signs of wind the next.

BeamerBob - 5-2-2016 at 08:04 AM

Yes! That coast up to the cast away handles was epic. It shows just how low the rolling resistance is on the playa.

Sorry, didn't realize you were still waiting on permission to post that. Not much to see but at least my wit was still working at the end :lol:

jeepersjoey - 5-2-2016 at 05:17 PM

Luckily, you look like all the other guys out there and no one will recognize you in the video. Your secret is safe with me!

Dang, who is that guy? Could be any of us out there! :lol:

GoPro lost...

jeepersjoey - 5-15-2016 at 06:26 PM

BTW...my GoPro never made it home.

I figure it was probably at the bottom of the flooded lake a few days after I left
Ivanpah.

My name and number was on the camera and housing.

If you found one, lemme know, please?

Blitzhound - 5-15-2016 at 10:17 PM

Excellent video. Thank you for sharing!

Damn Paul, very sorry to hear that. Best of luck with recovery.

BeamerBob - 5-16-2016 at 06:56 AM

I was there on Sunday and it wasn't laying around on the ground. I hope it turns up when someone notices it in their gear bag.
