: : 3. Has anyone out there tried to run full speed through a eucalyptus grove - with full rifle and gear? I have. It is just about imposible. In my opinion, this is the greatest failing of the film - possibly a result of shooting in the south rather than NY.
: --Strike "Eucalyptus" and enter "Mountain Laurel". Brain cramp.
Well, you've gone and spoiled ALL my fun! Actually, though, what you see in the film is the cousin of Mountain Laurel, Catawba Rhododendron.
To answer your question ... maybe running a well worn animal trail? Or, the canopy of old growth forests kept the forest floor relatively bare. Anyway, they WERE running, weren't they?! Artistic license, as well, PLUS Mark Baker's coaching!
Your third question must be answered by members of the CCCC!
