I really like the ease of use, and simple posting of pics, but the things just continues to grow, & grow. When I first installed it was a small little seed, now it's almost half my usable memory. I deleted a whole pile of my pics, and I really should have deleted the app instead. Who knew it would grow so large.....

Karri just go to settings in the tapatalk app find the advanced tab and clear cache. That will bring it back to normal. No need to delete.

What's even more depressing is that our daytime high at this time of year is supposed to be -3C. The forecast for this week suggests -17C and overnight lows in the -30s. If this keeps up - we won't be into + temps until July.

Not sure if any of you have been following Dave from Alberta's tour here on ADV called "Prairies To Penguins Alberta to Argentina"? He has traveled through much of the same areas and roads that Kari and Rosie have on his DR650.
A great ride report, well written and lots of photos- has just wrapped up on page, (52) with his "stats". He kept track of costs broken down in several categories etc.
Even if you don't read the whole tale you might find this ending info interesting.
I certainly did.

We are all ready for summer. We have so much snow a fast melt may spell trouble though.

It is almost open season on "Flood Forcasters" and "Weather Men".

I met some Winnipeggers on the flight back. I mentioned the same concern. Hopefully Duff's Ditch won't flow over this May.
