This is spam, plain and simple.



I am offering the following items for sale to the locals before putting them up on Craig's List.

Campbell-Hausfeld 13 gal. air compressor. Comes with 100 ft. of air line and coupler. Excellent working condition. I no longer need it since I have a plumbed up air system in the garage.







1999 Plymouth Grand Voyager. 152,077 miles. The only thing wrong with this vehicle is a sagging headliner. New battery and water pump. Needs nothing. Purchased in 1999 and we are the second owners.





Taken after inspection last year.

Huffy Rock Ridge 24 inch, 21 speed bicycle. Like new condition, probably only ridden 10 times. Eddy saw this bike the other day when picking up a wheel.

Complete drum set. Not in perfect condition, but would make an excellent starter set. Several components are brand new.

Please PM me if interested in any of the above.

LOL! Too late! My sister already got her payback for many years us giving her kids loud, battery operated, toys by buying Gabriel a set of drums and Elena a (loud) Barbie electric guitar last Christmas! I hate it when they play them at 0700 on Saturday morning! Fortunately, this has tapered off a bit! I'm sure I will miss that racket one day when they are teenagers...I guess it will be replaced by them blaring their music like I used to do.

We had a great time riding yesterday! I like the DRZ MUCH more than the TW. It still needs some farkles like a lower seat, ROX risers, a real skid plate and some more lights (and a left rear turn signal that was donated to the Shoe Creek gods after I tried to dab the ground and got nothing but air).


I think I did well to keep up after I realized at the end of the day that I forgot to pressure down to F20/R18 from F32/R30. My forearms, shoulders and back are sore today! I slept for 11 hours last night! Lynn wasn't amused when she got back from church with the kids and I was still sound asleep.

These are real instruments, i.e., no batteries. Surely the funds required for a delayed (future) bike purchase would be better well spent on the future musical education of your children - doncha think???

Went out to explore a fire road today that I had been meaning to look at for quite a bit. The GPS called it flag pole road and showed it connecting to a few other jeep trails/fire roads. I ended up turning around since I was solo and it started being a long series of downhill stone steps populated with lots of loose baseball sized rocks. I'll have to look on the maps to see where the other end comes out at. I also discovered my rear turn signals don't work when I got home.

Next time I should also look at the weather forecast first. Mesh gear was not the best choice for today, even with liners. I just assumed today would be like yesterday.

If you would have taken the left immediately prior to when the shit got ugly you would have been much better off. That puts you on Skidmore Fork Road which runs all the way to 33.

Edit: I'm assuming that because you mentioned Flagpole you were starting up by Reddish Knob.

RTE Suggestion

OK, we've had some interesting ideas and whatnot on the RTE, but how's this for a happy compromise? We keep it here in "chatter", (which seemed to be the agreement), and a single person decides that week's restaurant (again, something we all seemed to find acceptable). But here's the twist --- whoever is the "picker" also gets to name the next week's picker. For instance ...

Let's say I am this weeks OSOTR (Official Selector Of The Restaurant). I choose XYZ Meats and Ale. I also name Greg as the ADVer in charge of next week. We all dine and enjoy each others company. Next week, Greg as usual bails (LOL!), but still gets to pick the place and the person for week three. And so on, and so on.

Work for everyone? Seems to be self-managing and will keep the chat about "where" to a minimum. (And to keep things simple, I am willing to be this week's OSOTR). Wadda ya say?

Picker should be chosen from the attendees.......

Hey guys, I tend to hang out more in the HR Chatter thread, but it seems more of you FF's head westward (and on a more frequent basis).

Any of you gentlemen ever head out toward Marlinton/Snowshoe and know of any good fire/gravel roads out there? I posted in the WV Dual Sport thread but not much response, though it's only been a day.

Cheers!
