Loading up!!

Yesterday we took the truck out for a little spin and when we came back, we loaded up the Motorcycle. We have a RAMPAGE loader with a winch that makes the task pretty simple. Here are a few pictures of the process. If you click on any of the pictures, it should take you to the Web Album where you can see even more pictures.

There it is all loaded up and ready to go...........

I've been working with GOOGLE MAPS a little and it's something else!! If you haven't fooled with it, you should try it out. Here is a map of the route we will take.

View Larger Map
You can click on "view larger map" and use the "+" and "-" to zoom in and out, or the arrows to move around. Best way to move around is to use your mouse and click and drag. Then if you really want to see something neat, go to the "view in Google Earth". That is SOMETHING ELSE,,,,,,,,,you can fly around the country at any altitude you want.........ZOOM in on some of your favorite spots.............NEAT!!!!!

My best source for learning how to do this and MUCH MORE is with Chris Guld at Two Geeks on Tour. Chris is an EXPERT and goes all over the country putting on seminars and training sessions on Picasa, Google Maps and many other things. Here is a LINK to her Google Map Video web site: Google Map

Several of her short videos are free............Try them out, you will enjoy them and you may want to go further and subscribe to her service or order one of the CD's. Read all about it on her Website. Chris is an excellent instructor..

That's it for today,,,glad to have you stop by.

It is a GREAT WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We'll be looking forward to seeing you at the rally. We're set to arrive February 6. Nick says we have to stay out in the back 40 with him until the Gourd Festival clears out. That's OK by us!

We've used Google Maps a few times, and we subscribed to Geeks on Tour some months back. You're right, Chris is a good teacher!
