ralley tab...

Here's a look at my ralley tablet's ram mount positioning...



Here's what I see while sitting. No tablet in the mount, but it shows how i just bolted the ram mount ball onto the back of the otterbox outer case:



slightly crappier positioning, but w/ map on:

I'd probably need to leave a half hour before you......


It took a minute to look up where Manti is located......looks like 2 hours or so whether you go to Nephi or take the Spanish Fark routes......Auction at noon and BBQ lunch in the park..........I don't have an agenda so what time generally works for folks.......

I was in Layton this afternoon and the day was so perfect that I thought I'd take Avon Pass home rather than I-15/Logan Canyon. I knew they close that road in the winter, but figured it must be open by now. Nope.

Can anyone point me to a website I can check periodically that will say whether it's been opened yet or not?




edit:

Maybe it will be open tomorrow, if the road work is completed:

"The higher than normal runoff of 2011 accelerated erosion, and impending continued failure of the embankment now threatens to close Mt. Pisgah Road at this location. The project concept is to stabilize the remaining embankment slope with a shoring retain wall and prevent further erosion caused by the stream.

"Project construction is to begin in mid March and extend to June 1, 2013. During this time the contractor will be working and public access on both South canyon Road and Mt Pisgah Road will be limited. South Canyon Road is normally closed until approximately June 1, so little impact to the public will be created. "

Hey, if you guys can leave a bit later and don't mind the company I think me and the SO could be up for this.....and here's the best part.... I rented a Harley for tomorrow,,,, I can't really explain it.....lol....I need to pick it up at the HD dealer on State Street at 9:00 and can head right out from there. I need to return it by 4:00. They're having an MDA fund raiser there as well, so there's a concert going on after 4:00 for anyone who's up for it.

This way there'll be at least one bike that won't break it's final drive, bend a rim or have a water pump fail,,,,
