yup that's the name I disremembered

welcome to the game

ok you gots a Roadster already, whatcha waiting on?

I only occasionally ride out on the XT for tags unless they're close by

brucing is still a good ride, trust me, I been there, several times

the spousal unit got herself an iPhone ... and if I figger out how to paste the url I finally figgered out how to copy in the image box to post a pic, she'll either have a problem finding hers or I might have to get one mineownself ... or figger out bluetooth linking it to the laptop for internet sharing ... or a cable for the camera ... or just flick the pic with the iPhone and post it

sure would be nice to not have to pack a laptop and a camera and search for free Wifi spots

Not sure I'd call it spam just one advrider passing an offer he found on to the guys he rides with. Nothing more nothing less. I wasn't paid or given anything to put it up just thought some others on here might be interested as well.

maybe they should put it in vendors?



looked like an ad to me

maybe post it in vendors and post a link to it there?

like "there's a $000 coupon ad in vendors here"

by the way I went to the link and don't see any mention of this coupon offer ...

'course it is late / early and I am PUI

They emailed it to me once I signed up. Sorry didn't know there was a vendor section. Ask NCStephen I am hardly an expert on here. I'll remove it and forget that idea from now on.

New Tag



Head south into that spooky County were Count Dracula lives to find this one. It's also nearby a town that sounds kinda like the place the aliens hang out in New Mexico. The town in NC is actually the site of an space research institute. (Hard to believe if you've ever been there) Last clue is that the first two digits in this road add up to the third. Go get it before the rain.

Since yall are talking about blackberry's I actually was trying to post the Browning Knob tag from mine but couldn't type in the reply box for some reason. After I got home and posted it up I figured out that when I set my browser on the blackberry to internet explorer it wouldn't let me type but if the browser is set to blackberry it worked fine. Other sites seem to work better with it set to internet explorer so I guess it just depends on the code.

Had exactly the same experience with mine the first time I tried it. Switched to B-berry and I could type but still not able to click on the image icon to paste the url into. Some quirk with the blackberry I guess. Would love to get the Iphone but not willing to switch providers.

smartphones

Just to chime in here about the typing issues. I've been using a Palm Pre and was having the same sort of problems. after trying several things i found if i cleared my cache and history before i needed to type it solved the problem.

This fix seems to be site specfic though. it's what i have to do for ADV

As much as we want them to be pocket PC's (me included) moblie phone tech just isn't quite there.....yet. IMO a netbook with teather is going to be the most reliable solution for about 12 -18 more months.

Found the tag. 54 miles away. Really tempted but I should stay home and keep working on trim.

152 miles for me and it hasn't rained all day here. Now that I have time to go it's too late and the rain is definitely coming. We'll see what happens tomorrow.

Now that I'm fed and ready, my garage has become a haunted house complete with sounds and lights we've started getting a few light sprinkles. It rained cats, dogs, and a few small farm animals earlier today. Sadly my fog machine seems to be demised this year.

Happy Halloween to all y'all!
