She's not a fan of the 12 hour ride.

Hmmm...Hwy 1 probably sucks for a mountain bike. I'll leave that at home but probably pack the snorkel gear... I'll also be packing OPs paddle boards.


Jake,

There is a nice running/bike lane for most of Islamorada and other parts of the keys.

Additionally, there are mooring balls off many of the shallow reefs. Case in point the light pole about 2 miles offshore from the Islander.

You can sail your boat there and tie off to a mooring ball and snorkel around the light sturcture.

T.


Yeah there's a bike lane, but too what from what and why? It's flat as a pancake.

Don't forget your tervis. Having to hammer down rum drinks to beat the ice melting is great, but not before brunch.

Speaking of ice melting, are you up there in that snow-belt crap Karl?

Hammering drinks down before ten, doesn't make for a very functional afternoon in my experience. laugh

We're in the ice box right now. It is way colder than it should be, it should be about 20 warmer than it is. We haven't gotten squat for snow though. Enough to be annoying, and that is about it. Buffalo NY got hammered though! I'm glad we don't have to deal with lake effect stuff here, just brutal, horrible, life sucking cold. It'll warm up in no time though. This shouldn't last much more than four or five more months...

[thread hijack]

Holy cow was what Buffalo just went through amazing or what!? I once lived in Cleveland and a 10 degree shift in the wind coming across the lake (while it was not frozen over) usually meant the difference between 3 feet or 3 inches. I can't imagine what 6' of snow is like to deal with. I read a report that the Buffalo Bill's stadium is planning to try and remove 220,000 tons of snow so they can host their game on Sunday. That is a LOT of dump trucks.

I was in Chicago for the "blizzard of (I believe)'78". Being a yoot at the time, they sent my scrawny butt up to the roof to clean the heater exhaust so carbon monoxide wouldn't back up into the house.

I'm sure it was "lake effect" snow too. It was half-way up the front door.

I'm so glad I presently don't have to know what a storm door/window is or how to use it... smile

but wouldn't the hot exhaust from the heater take care of melting the snow that might block it?

Or it melts just enough to make a dome/cap of ice.

WHERE THE "F" WERE YOU WHEN I COULD HAVE USED THAT INFORMATION??? smile

now I feel like a total dumbass... They were probably sending me up there just to see what kind of idiot I could become flopping/sliding all over the roof (thank GOD it wasn't a steep pitch).

Ahh to be 14 again...

Really!? I go out of town for a couple of days and you whiney b!tches start crying about the weather? Steeplechase is only weeks away princesses do what you gotta do, Ricky thinks he owns this one, it's gonna sting a little when you guys get beat by a skinny Yankee white girl and and old fat man... maybe that's why the Karl's won't come and play! It makes sense now.

Just got an email from Eric, the Roberts are in on their ARC 22. Eric had trouble getting his iPhone 4 to track. Could someone with an iPhone 4 try it out? Make sure you have the latest version. Below is a link:

Kattack had an issue with one of their updates but they resolved it. If there are any other issues, I would like to resolve them before the event.

Laura had the same problem with her iPhone at Corpus. We never got it working, even the supplied phone wouldn't work.

What was the date of the Corpus race? Was it an iPhone 4?

Both my iPhone 3GS & iPhone 5 work fine.

I think the new OS on the iPhone 6 was the issue and didn't work with the app.

That was the understanding but Laura hadn't updated yet...she was doing everything right - it just wouldn't work.

It worked fine with my Android phone (I'm not making an endorsement...I hate my phone).

I absolutely love my Android phone - its superior to any Apple product in every way shape and form - and it works just fine for displaying these tracking pages :P

Problem Solved! Turned out that once Eric updated his phone to the latest IOS version it worked.
