    Nothing nearly so melodramatic...major system outage of the hosting service.

    You guys were beginning to scare me. I thought I would have to go back to TV and watch the self-promoting ass wipes.

    LOL. That gave me a good laugh. Thanks.

    I had a few hic ups at first and it was navigating really slow, but it seems to be fine now on my laptop.

    On my end, I was receiving *WARNINGS* from Google Chrome that the site was unsafe (https was missing) and may be trying to steal my passwords/identity

    Glad to see it back up and running!

    Same message on Firefox. Glad I had saved RacerX's instructions on filling k1+ fork legs.

    Racerx is da man.

    As I indicated on another thread, he is currently restomoding a CT70HK0 for me. Somehow he managed to cobble together a new Honda Nice 110cc engine for the project. This will be the bike that I desperately wanted to own while in high school, but could not afford at the time given my $1.10/hour wage as a pizza shop worker

    I'm glad that we're back, up and runnin... just like it never happened. I was up North on a short hunting trip when it came back. Phone service was really weak, but I was able to connect here and there. Kudo's to our host site for taking care of us.

    All the best destinations, these days, have dodgy phone/interweb service...because they're near the edge of, or off, the grid.

    What were you hunting and were you successful? Seems to me that it's bear season here in the great pothole state.

    Little birds that fly fast, and no.

    lol... Not many Woodcock or Grouse in the Glennie area it seems. Three smelly men and 2 wet dogs, driving around on dirt roads and 2 tracks in MY truck (verry smelly dogs), stopping and hunting for a couple hours then loading up to find another spot, for two long days AND cold nights camping.
    I had a great time, with two good friends and two good dogs. We didn't shoot a single bird :--)

    Should have brought some minitrails with you kirrbby.
    My grandparents used to have a place out in paper company land out in Arkansas. About 50 acres. I used to go there during the summer when I was a kid. Great place for hunting. Ridding bikes and 4x4 trucks were SO much fun out on those log truck roads. The fishing was great too.

    We were in Huron national Forest. "National Forest" I didn't think you could ride wheeled vehicles in "state parks". State land. But you can in the national Forest I guess, or at least parts of it. Cool area tho. Would probably get old after a while tho, when the scenery is trees, and rivers and lakes, and more trees and rivers and...
