Thanks all.
Allison was the matron of the wildest living arrangement I ever encountered.
All living in a house in suburban Tucson circa 81.... 82
Allison, a bartender/hairdresser
Her boyfriend Marty... jobless lush philosopher
Her husband... Roland a male stripper. They never saw any reason to get a divorce.
Marie, a truckstop prostitute who had a CDL... so she would get picked up in Tucson and help a guy drive for weeks at a time. double dipping as the trip progressed! Pretty smart if you ask me.
Dave A motorcycle badass, Vietnam vet who was a mercenary in some war torn South American country
Bill... her brother/my friend.... a real estate agent.
Me.. an itinerant day laborer. I stayed in the tool shed like Carl Childers.


Some crazy good times there.

Bob, His place is somewhere between Sand Point and Libby.

Hello Jax

If you get time, would you give us the story on your new Tiger toy (GPS/notebook).

What type of cradle does it take? Is it a touch screen? Does it work with gloves on........etc.

Inquiring dumbasses would like to know.

Thanks Todd.
It has indeed! Crazy Fox Coffee has made it to Dakar! Rumor has it this stuff tastes great, will make your wanker harder than a woodpecker's lips and cures Ebola 50% of the time.



Okay, it's entirely possible that I made at least one of those things up. But hey, I'm no marketing genius, I just can't wait to have a cup tomorrow morning!!!

Thanks Kev!

Having done no research to this point, we can neither confirm nor dispute these claims.


Hope the shirt color was OK.

Nexus7 refurb 130$ It's a 32GB with stand alone GPS, no cell connectivity. WiFi only.
Osmand free app that you can load .gpx files into. Pretty easy to use.

1" Ram ball mount (though sounds funny) does a good job of holding the tab. this holder http://www.protelecomsupply.com/ram-...-ifxoCJkLw_wcB

usb connector and cable for on the fly charging.

I have been having more and more issues using small GPSs. Sight being the worst. I can't see my GPSs well enough for them to be useful.
My only real choice in a stand alone is a 6" 600+$ garmin. I just can't justify that kind of cashola.
This whole thing is less than 200 and it is an android tab that does all that stuff too.
Not waterproof.
Garrett, I suspect that this is not going to be a good solution for the kind of riding you do. Well... unless you can protect it in a tank bag or something. The charging connector is not robust. I am thinking about some better solutions than the usb in space you can see in the photo.
Gloves have worked.... and not worked. I think humidity has something to do with it.
It was in direct sunlight last weekend and didn't freeze even though it was hot to the touch.
It led me down an adventurous gravel road last weekend to the MD tag.
