Yall don't worry bout no sign! Google Webster county WV and see how many murders without conviction!!!!! Last I remember they were still batting 0.

Oh shit I've said too much!!! My ex is from that county and her dad damn near owns the whole place, but he don't own me!

Pretty sure - yes. 304-493-6638. I think she opens Sunday morning around 8 or 9.

Total cost will be about $14,865. Your share will be $7,433. Thanks!

Just kidding. Actually, I was looking at Staples and they have 30" X 72" (2-1/2 foot X 6 foot) vinyl outdoor banners for about $55-$60 for a pair. I need to ask if there are metal grommets (?) to attach lines to in each corner.

My idea is keep it simple and easy to read when driving by. Something like...



Cheap photo of the screen while working on the Staples site. Just 3 lines of text for easy reading. Two signs - one for each end of the building for traffic approaching from either direction.

I thought of adding "ADV Approved" but only a few folks who pass by there probably know what that means.


Thoughts?

I like it, I hate to be a party poooper, but would we be able to say that without permission from the forum owner? if we changed it to "Adventure rider approved" that would not need prior approval because it's not referring to the site but rather our type of riding. Or maybe "Adventure rider friendly!" but that's just my 2 cents.

No problem, 'cause I really was just kidding. It probably didn't come across that way. Sorry. I think most ADV folks in this region probably know about her anyways.

I think any more text on the banner would be hard to digest in the short time traffic would see it on the way past due to limited sightlines.

Yeah, I debated that, but went with the old sticker as a model:



No problem to add it, though. I'm good with what ever the majority wants.

What about a little discrete "ADV" down in the corner?

Let me send a permission slip up the food chain to see if they will "sign" it.

Instead of the ADV/Adventure stuff how about "Motorcyclist Welcome Here" in letters half the size of the phone number across the bottom?
