There's no need to worry about the ride report, Dr. Rock. We'll be here when the chaos is over. Take care of yourselves.

Listened to coverage of the storm on NPR this morning. Sounds like you guys had a wild ride... Hope things get back to normal soon!

Wishing you the best,

>"NYU hospital had to evacuate.

Made CBS News... (follows).

Many patients were too sick to walk down the narrow staircase to the lobby. They were painstakingly carried on plastic sleds - one by one - by teams of four to five people from as high up as the 17th floor. I went to several of the floors with Dr. Mark Pochapin, the director of the Division of Gastroenterology at NYU. He was one of a team of people making sure that communication flowed and that everybody was accounted for. The intensive care unit was already evacuated when I arrived. Lit only by my flashlight, filled with crumpled blankets and other evidence of a hasty retreat, it appeared eerie to me - like a scene in a movie where a cup of still-warm-coffee tells the detective that somebody had been a room only minutes before. But this was undeniably real life and the clock was ticking as the team of workers raced to evacuate the patients."

New Montana and Idaho gps

Well-------since the Dr. is out for a bit thought I'd throw around a little bull-----especially since he ain't here to defend himself

The Dr. had one of those 2012 Garmin Montana gps's. He is a really smart guy and has the latest techno stuff I ever seen.
I mean---------who else has a "Campfire Substitute" ????

Imagine how appalled he was when I pulled out my 2013 Montana in Garmin 276 disguise----it's a beta test model that can't
be bought yet.




But wait----------Dingleweeds out done me and had a 2013 Idaho----it was the real deal and not a beta test model.
That Dingleweeds is a shroud character I tell ya.

If your bike weighs more than 400lbs. You might not make it.

Hmmm. Is that the yet-to-be-released 2013 Garmin Russet that D'Weed has? I hear it's kinda buggy--nematodes and the like--but Garmin Support says their free download, which they call "RoundUp," will fix it.

These new garmins have the same smell as the TKC90's earlier in this thread.

Glad you're safe

I'm watching the news from the east coast with great sadness.... difficult to imagine what folks are going through. At least you two have the "camping out" bit down. Pax Vobiscum.

Regretably I....

Haven't been able to follow the Mobius Trip since page 333 and have just started 334; where it's getting more interesting WRT the mountain climbing and decending.

I punched through to the end, with the idea of reading any Sandy issues you may be suffering from.....and there you are!!!!

Can you please log in to NSDSC and send/pm me an email address........I have a question......

Brian

Like most natural disasters, the stuff that comes after almost always eclipses the actual event. We weathered the storm just fine @ the AdventureLoft. Still no power, no running water, no heat. That said, we're well fed, getting plenty of exercise climbing 10 flights, and still have 2/3rds full bathtub for flushing the toilet. Camping at home isn't so bad. We're certainly much better off than those who've lost lives or homes.

Situation at work has been more challenging & problematic. I'm stuck here overnight with all but two patients evacuated. I don't want to hijack our own ride report with the details, but I should be able to process some photos on the laptop, just no way to upload them.

Biggest issue for us now is a hot shower.

Original post got cut off. Had to rewrite in edit mode on smartphone. Cell service really sketchy. What a PIA. Go home and hug your broadband. ;-)

Posting from the field; please excuse brevity & misspellings.
