    this could happen to you, hope not in dv.

    i took the 640E to work and forgot to turn off the LED aux lights. the power not keyed!

    i have to walk to get home and took me 1 hour...:cry

    the battery is 4 years old and didn't take much to drain it. time to get a new one before the rally.

    Great information and even though I didn't ask for it this is just what I wanted. :clap

    Today my Benchmark and DV map arrived. I felt like a little kid on Christmas morning as I ripped into the box to get to the goodies I knew where in it. Now I'll grab my highlighters and have fun in my big kid's coloring book. :wings

    Isn't that how it's supposed to go? Some people say if you're not falling down you're not trying hard enough. I try really hard....

    If I follow you will you show me the soft places to land? :D

    Names too please, and the reservations/waiting list is for people not vehicles. We have to put multiple peeps in one campsite most likely... It is not cramped though.. Lots of room :clap
