    We need all the rules in here and then some. You don't wanna see what some guy in Bangkok will do to the game without any rules.:huh

    You didn't need to change it for some guy in Australia that's a whiner. But ok, this will be a kinder, gentler world leadership.

    POSSIBLY THE WORST SHOT EVER OF THE GREATEST GREAT LAKE!!!

    Sorry for the poor likeness. I couldn't get any closer on the beach, and it was a PITA of a detour to get a better shot. :norton

    Believe it or not, this is Lake Ontario taken from DT Toronto. After a quick skinny dip and a quick trip to the local gaol, here you have it.

    So the TAG is: a bridge with an inscription of some sort. :norton

    The year alone don't cut it though! :nono

    If somebody has a bridge w/ a clock attached I think that'll do too. :nod

    Hey BWALSH,

    Sandy Point Park sounds really inviting; the Polar Bear Plunge.... er, not so much. :norton


    I did jump off the bridge over the Yellowknife River twice in one day as a youn'un. Once w/ dog, once w/out. Ruff, the dog in question, preferred the jump w/out his furry self, no doubt. We both set speed records getting to the bank. I'll never forget the look he gave me!!

    That river runs over a lot of permafrost before it gets to that bridge. There was significant shrinkage. :eek1

    Hey BM,

    Well it was too cold for swimming. :norton

    Actually -5, same as Old Blighty it seems. I thought we were supposed to have the colder winters here in Canuckistan...
    No worries--I have a heated liner.
    Global warming gave us 2 weeks above freezing this January. Great riding weather. I might have to buy a big old 60's V8 Cage to hasten the arrival of the tropical weather. :1drink

    Got any funky old bridges w/ letters on them in the Weald of Kent??

    Now that I think about it, its after midnight Across the Pond, and you're likely not sober 'nuff to ride. :1drink

    We got medieval bridges around but most of the stones with any markings are either worn away or in the wrong place to photo...
    Besides it is someone elses turn now :D (and i was asleep)

    Like this one NOT A TAG

    Hi O2TAC


    I don't know how close you are to the covered bridges, but some of them are inscribed. I checked to see how big your state is, mostly 'cause I can never find it. Turns out you guys are the second smallest state, I guess you can't really be too far from a covered bridge then. :augie

    No where in DE is all that far, but snow is the issue at the moment.

    Right, of course. My bad! :norton

    Although there seems to be snow cover to the N,S,E, &W of here, Toronto is sans snow and balmy this winter.

    Dunno why... perhaps that Gore fellow does?? :rofl

    Yeah whats the deal aren't you the one,being up in Canada, that is supposed to be covered in snow with your bike parked away for the winter?

    Instead here we are in Virginia with a foot of snow again.

    You'd think!!

    In reality though, I ride all winter. Last winter I dumped her 4 times in the snow. The cost of mirrors, brake levers, footpegs etc is small...
    but it was worrying me; being "underemployed", I couldn't aford anything big/costly.

    This winter's been a breeze. :norton


    Having said that, I put in 150 kms on a -15 C (5 F) day last week.
    Only once did my fingers hurt; when warm blood returned to them whilst thawing.

    Kinda painful. Kinda funny.

    I managed to dump my baby 4 times - in a row. In a desperate effort to get her back home, up the hill. Useless effort, by the way. Had to walk her back to the next village (dumping her again twice), because the road was only pure ice, covered by a little snow. Next morning I rode again, but a few days after I had to give up. That was on 21st of december. Since that day she's parked at the University and I couldn't et her back home yet... Sad story...

    BTW: I know that finger-thawing thing pretty good. Used to ride regularly at -10 to -18°C back in Berlin. It hurts damn well. :evil

    Can't wait to join the game..... Even if I also like the snow up here...

    We had 1 entire week of snow.. and only about 6" yet the country still managed to come to a complete standstill... It's embarrasing... I want more snow like our neighbours in the Mainland... just enough to warrant snow tyres would be cool :evil

    Anyway who is going to a bridge?
