  1. Thanks for all your efforts and thanks for sharing the story! This site has been a great resource for finding great people to ride with, thanks everybody! Such a good group of people. Haha, all my coworkers started calling it duelsportsingles.com when they found out what I was up to.
  2. Great riding with you!
  3. Monthly "Communicator Gateway" Workshop Date: Saturday, September 9, 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Location: Scripps La Jolla Hospital Campus in San Diego (Schaetzel Center Building, next to the main hospital building, ground floor, in the Noble Room) Parking: Park in underground parking or in the above-ground parking structure. (At the workshop, please ask for the parking validation procedure.) Map: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Scripps+Memorial+Hospital+La+Jolla (To help you locate the Workshop location on the hospital campus, attached to this email is a photo with the building marked. When you enter the building, look for people wearing yellow shirts.) ATTENTION people of all ages interested in Ham Radio (licensed, not licensed, or out of practice)! San Diego Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES) will conduct another FREE monthly workshop to help participants "Get On The Air" (GOTA). Everyone is welcome regardless of club or organization affiliation! This two-hour workshop is intended for anyone getting started (or struggling) with a handheld "HT" radio. If you attended in the past, you are welcome to return for another workshop to hone your skills. If you have an earlier edition of the free workbook, please bring it with you to this workshop. The workshop starts with basics, such as how to turn on the radio, and then progresses to operating in simplex and repeater mode. This is a hands-on workshop in small groups led by Elmers (instructors), not a lecture. Participants receive a free workbook to guide their progress. What to bring: 1. A handheld radio, if you have one or can borrow one. Elmers will have a few loaners available. We recommend a 2m/70cm (VHF/UHF) handheld transceiver (HT). 2. The operating manual for your radio. Please bring the entire manual - either paper copy or on a tablet. 3. A pen, and a few paper clips or stickies to tab pages in your operating manual during the workshop. 4. If your HT is the Baofeng UV-5R (or other model Baofeng), please visit the web site www.miklor.com, print, and then bring to class copies of the documents: "On the Fly Keyboard Programming," "Keypad Layout and Functions," and "Reference and FAQ Page." These documents are much better than the manual that comes with the radio. This workshop follows the regularly-scheduled ARES meeting. If you plan to attend the workshop, please RSVP to k6rjf.rob@gmail.com so we know how many study guides to produce, or if you have a specific interest or question. When you RSVP, please tell us which radio you will bring, and please include your call sign (if you have a call sign). The most common radios (HTs) brought to this workshop are: Yaesu FT-60 and Baofeng UV-5R. Occasionally students bring Yaesu FT-65, Yaesu FT-1, Yaesu FT-2, Wouxun, Kenwood, and Baofeng models other than the UV-5R. We teach each model radio in a different group

  9. Hi all, I know some of us really enjoy visiting esoteric locations, over the years I have come across these lesser known areas while planning rides. I sometimes struggle to remember what interwebs rabbit hole I stumbled down to get the information. Sooo, I thought I would start putting links and photos in one location that we could all access. Please feel free to add anything you come across. I'd like to find the location of the Rockwood gate failure. ie how the Salton sea was created) Would cool to trace some of the old water canals on a ride! https://www.iid.com/home/showdocument?id=4900

  11. Hey guys and gals, do any of you have a resource for checking current water flow levels of local creeks? If anyone wonders down boulder creek road this weekend I'm wondering if you could let me know if the concrete water crossing is at just a trickle yet? Thanks!
