    Should be one of your sponsors as their sales must have increased at least 10% since the begginning of this awesome thread.:evil

    What a great ride! The Mobius crew find all the good stuff.

    Gotta watch out for those sprinklers in city parks, or anywhere the grass is greener. We camped in Eureka, NV last summer and I noticed that the grass was really nice. I couldn't see any sprinklers at first, but walked around slowly, moving the grass with my foot, and found the pop-up heads. Luckily, the parks manager came along and offered to turn them off for us during the two days we camped there. It could have been messy!

    NYU hospital had to evacuate. Backup generators are in the basement. D'oh. They're technically in zone A, but convinced DOH that they had the infrastructure to shelter in place. NYU fought hard against evacuating for Irene. Bellevue, though next door, is in zone B. No mandatory evac. Bellevue on backup generators since last night. No problems AFAIK. I've been at home. Haven't been called in. Totally surreal here.

    Regrettably, this ride report will be temporarily on hold.

    Posting from the field; please excuse brevity & misspellings.

    There's no need to worry about the ride report, Dr. Rock. We'll be here when the chaos is over. Take care of yourselves.

    Listened to coverage of the storm on NPR this morning. Sounds like you guys had a wild ride... Hope things get back to normal soon!

    Wishing you the best,

    >"NYU hospital had to evacuate.

    Made CBS News... (follows).

    Many patients were too sick to walk down the narrow staircase to the lobby. They were painstakingly carried on plastic sleds - one by one - by teams of four to five people from as high up as the 17th floor. I went to several of the floors with Dr. Mark Pochapin, the director of the Division of Gastroenterology at NYU. He was one of a team of people making sure that communication flowed and that everybody was accounted for. The intensive care unit was already evacuated when I arrived. Lit only by my flashlight, filled with crumpled blankets and other evidence of a hasty retreat, it appeared eerie to me - like a scene in a movie where a cup of still-warm-coffee tells the detective that somebody had been a room only minutes before. But this was undeniably real life and the clock was ticking as the team of workers raced to evacuate the patients."

    Well-------since the Dr. is out for a bit thought I'd throw around a little bull-----especially since he ain't here to defend himself :evil:evil:evil:evil

    The Dr. had one of those 2012 Garmin Montana gps's. He is a really smart guy and has the latest techno stuff I ever seen.
    I mean---------who else has a "Campfire Substitute" ????

    Imagine how appalled he was when I pulled out my 2013 Montana in Garmin 276 disguise----it's a beta test model that can't
    be bought yet.

    But wait----------Dingleweeds out done me and had a 2013 Idaho----it was the real deal and not a beta test model.
    That Dingleweeds is a shroud character I tell ya.

    Hmmm. Is that the yet-to-be-released 2013 Garmin Russet that D'Weed has? I hear it's kinda buggy--nematodes and the like--but Garmin Support says their free download, which they call "RoundUp," will fix it.

    I'm watching the news from the east coast with great sadness.... difficult to imagine what folks are going through. At least you two have the "camping out" bit down. Pax Vobiscum.

    Haven't been able to follow the Mobius Trip since page 333 and have just started 334; where it's getting more interesting WRT the mountain climbing and decending.

    I punched through to the end, with the idea of reading any Sandy issues you may be suffering from.....and there you are!!!!

    Can you please log in to NSDSC and send/pm me an email address........I have a question......

    Like most natural disasters, the stuff that comes after almost always eclipses the actual event. We weathered the storm just fine @ the AdventureLoft. Still no power, no running water, no heat. That said, we're well fed, getting plenty of exercise climbing 10 flights, and still have 2/3rds full bathtub for flushing the toilet. Camping at home isn't so bad. We're certainly much better off than those who've lost lives or homes.

    Situation at work has been more challenging & problematic. I'm stuck here overnight with all but two patients evacuated. I don't want to hijack our own ride report with the details, but I should be able to process some photos on the laptop, just no way to upload them.

    Biggest issue for us now is a hot shower.
