Has your PN-40 gone haywire yet? I burned through two of them in two years. Going to return the last one to REI and maybe get a Garmin.

Not yet but I haven't had it long. It was cheap so if it does no big deal.

haywire ^^^

I've had my Garmin Rino 530 Hcx pair for like 5 years, and a strength and weakness is that it has a battery pack that's built into the unit, so free floating AA's won't vibe out. one pack last 3 full days, so I just take one to swap out. Mine looks like its been through a war, electrical tape on the antennae, perma-dust encrusted everywhere. I plugged it into my laptop and it glitched out and died, and garmin is replacing it for $130 since it's out of warranty. I thought that was quite reasonable considering what it'd been through. They retail at $500 per, but i got em online for $350 each, and I'd say they paid themselves off the very first time my grrrrrl took a wrong turn in the winter during twilight far from nowhere.


What?! No advice on welding a windshield?!

You may try some clear strong epoxy, but the epoxy will discolor and weaken with UV exposure.

Drill a hole in the end of the crack to stop it. Then get a piece of tin and some pop rivits.

Is it for the 'strom?

I once 'welded' a table saw error (from cutting slots in my homemade windscreen) with a soldering iron having a spatula tip. Then buffed it out. Far from perfect, but fully functional.

Also sawed off about half the stock screen after mashing it into a bigass rock, and then bolted a homemade screen on top of it.

Hey you asked.

Here is the link. A is the bottom start of the trail, B is the top end. You can take the road shown on the map to get to either end. I did take my Tiger on this trail from the top down which is easier way but I wouldn't recomend to do it solo on GSA

Questions:

1) looks like I'll be in Moab tomorrow and was thinking of riding all day, or possibly ride and camp done by mid day Sunday. Anyone interested in riding??

2) Just saw this pretty good review on the 690e. Would you guys on the 690e agree?

3) Frog -- sick...

I couldn't wait any longer. These mini razors are so dang cute I had to get one
for the grand kid. Okay so I will have to put blocks on the pedals for a little while.
Maybe "borrow" a booster seat from Mc Donalds.

Short ride off of skyline in bountiful today. Couldn't get the trail to connect like I was told it did, had to turn back. Ran into a tree and turned the fork tubes in the clamps. Bummed some tools from a guy camping out of his truck to repair it after a few miles.
Got grilled at a checkpoint set up by the DNR and the police near one of the gates about my Michigan plates, registration, license, etc. I guess I should take care of that when I return. Might as well get a Utah phone number too. Makes it official, right?
I would love to connect with someone to ride with up here, if anyone knows the trails. This one was fun, until the creek. That's where I lost the trail.

It was supposed to start at A, and end at B. I think I might have made it halfway. It kept going down canyon, with no hint of going back up like I thought it would. In any case, it was beautiful out this afternoon. Headed back to Michigan in the morning, back in about a week.
