Additional photos from today's grab

Here are two additional shots to match up with xtphreaks. The GS made it in OK, but took a few bounces. My laptop will never be the same, Sort of bent now.


By the looks of these photos the laptop is too hurt to place full size photos - - oh well. Back in a bit with a new tag shot - hopefully bigger than these.

I think your laptop looks cool now. You know...it has that "experienced" Adventure Rider look to it now. I've always wanted a mac with a nice concave curve to it..should shed water better Just think, yours is now unique ...'er well it would be nice if all the keys could stick up through the board instead of hanging up though And another thing, your laptop understands and is more acquainted with your tool kit now too

yep

dat bees it

sorry 'bout the laptop, that's why I mounted the pelican on homemade quick releases ... waterproof and sturdy laptop case
but I feared hauling the Dell around, too big too $$

so I got one of those gateway netbooks ... and in the RV in SC verizon 3G is all the internet I gots!!

it's much more bikeable ... and I posted the Harmon Den shot (via 3G) from the side of the creek on 148

the Parsons Branch tag was posted (on their WiFi) from the Pitstop on 28 in Fontana Village ... cold beer on tag!!!!!



bet I know which little uphil (with optional ruts and bumps) gotcha

I don't even have the "skidplate", 'cause the front mount broke a month ago

I bet if Luke 15 will send that thing back to Mac with photos and tell them the whole story ( and the fact that it started working again after he bent it straight over his knee ) with photos and all, they will get such a kick out of it they might make him a good deal on a new cabinet. He could let them use his story for a commercial on their almost indestructible product I think we need to get his 'puter out on a good KTM ride and get a little mud/muck slung on it next to give it the final touch

Nice tag placement I think some of the AVL dinner thread folks were just out that way. Great place to beat the heat.

Two in One Day! WoooHooo!

First time for me. Two tags on the same day.



Here's a self portrait!










Here's a shot of my computer sitting on it's throne. No Wi/Fi here.


I'll put up a ride report and the new tag after I get some chores done. Might be kinda late tonight or early tomorrow. Joe
