    Oh yea :thumb , started early on the backroads going north then south to your tag. Continued south and then east to this new tag.
    Nothing like a border to border run on beautiful day like today. :pynd

    Before my shaft days we use to take our chains and soak them in a coffee can of motor oil. We'd put the can on top of a hot plate and let it cook over night. :pot
    Don't ever remember buying a new chain or sprockets unless they were missing teeth. :dunno
    If we ran out of adjustment, we'd grind a link off. :ricky

    Nice Tag! I was on the same chain program, (missing sprocket teeth and all) till I could afford the O ring chains. It really did not matter much on a dirt bike, but the "soak it" plan slings oil EVERYWHERE for the first few miles.

    My understanding of WD40 on chains, is it has great cleaning properties. But, using it cleans out any lubricant that should be there and leaves just a little lube to replace it.

    Well, I have no clue on this one. Would search for brick house turn up any clues?
    BTW, I think your list of counties needing tags isn't accurate. I think you listed the county where George Dickel is located? not that I'm making any plans or anything., but mama gave me a kitchen pass for tomorrow.

    Yea, I think you're right. It's kinda hard comparing the tags and estimating the borders of the counties they are in, and like you I realized the George Dickel tag was in Coffee county, and this was one of my tags :dunno
    I wish my Zumo showed counties lines, it would help with my goal of getting all the counties tagged.

    Say you need a hint?
    Who's this guy? His last name will put you in the seat.

    I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my....oh wait

    OK, hijack alert.....Question for the GPS PHDs. Does anyone know how to convert a CSV (excel) file so I can use it in my Garmin?

    The Williamson County website has a mapping tool that allows you to draw lines on a map and then export the lines as a csv. as lat/lon points. WHat Id like to be able to do is draw a line around a piece of property on the map, export the csv, convert to a gpx (I think), send to my garmin so I can then see the "property lines"...then I could go out and walk the property and know where the boundarys are....make sense?

    Thanks of anyone knows how to do it....

    Well it WAS yesterday. I got time off for good behavior.
    Not to worry, I had a great ride today. 254 miles, and highway 30 is still one of my favorites.
