  1. 4 Tickets to the Gulls(hockey) WED - Nov 8th

    Thank you but I cant. We have a large group of kids going. Mainly my kids and their friends. I was able to get 8 tickets that came with ice skating on the ice after the game. I will be taking them all out to eat before we go so I dont have to pay for them in the venue.
  2. 4 Tickets to the Gulls(hockey) WED - Nov 8th

    I am going. I am going with the wife, kids and my kids friends. I dont know where the seats will be. They are a promotion between the Gulls and Padres so I will be there early(first 400 get $5 concession vouchers) to hope fully get the best seats possible.
  3. Not a lot of traction. Maybe we should postpone until Jan?

  7. Traveling with a truck: Suggestions?

  8. Traveling with a truck: Suggestions?

    I put a soft shell on my truck and it really comes in handy. There are two different makers. I went with the BESTOP Supertop over the Softopper. What is nice is these products is that stuff in the bed is protected from blowing out and weather, but can be folded up if you need to put something large(motorcycle) in the bed of the truck.
  9. It is not that I dont like National Monuments, I do not like the Gov abusing its power and closing land by designating it a National Monument without the public having a say.
  10. The Rangers need a new Trail Maintenance Agreement between SDAR and the Forestry Service. I will need a list of all volunteers and their phone # and email addresses. I will start making a list in the first thread of those who are committed and I have their info. I also need to know any minors who will be there as they need a different agreement for them. If you wish to be off the Forum list but still participate you can send me your info, but please tell me you dont want to be on the Forum list. It is important to have the volunteers listed for the Forest Service as they get credit for all who show up. Everyone really appreciates those who volunteer. SDAR has always been a big contributor to their trail maintenance program and I am hoping we can get larger and larger turnouts for this. I would like to do this twice a year minimum. I am working on getting some Sponsors so we can have some raffles for volunteers as a thank you. If someone is working on signs please let me know so we are not doing double duty. Thanks again!
  11. Bike camping chairs

    So I am feeling like goldilocks and the three chairs. I have been looking and ordering and think I found what I wanted. These are the three I compared https://www.googleadservices.com/pagead/aclk?sa=L&ai=DChcSEwihgY3UxJHXAhVQYX4KHRyIA9YYABBDGgJwYw&ohost=www.google.com&cid=CAESEeD2DXS-TnHrYuhaJJMORGIC&sig=AOD64_27Doulee9KvACV8EFNu3OryvNtJw&ctype=47&q=&ved=0ahUKEwjr-4XUxJHXAhUC62MKHSYGAqEQ9aACCM4B&adurl= https://www.amazon.com/Trekology-Portable-Camping-Adjustable-Height/dp/B01CNCBVMS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1509132471&sr=8-1&keywords=trekology+chair https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M0SB458/ref=od_aui_detailpages00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 These are the chairs packed up. Chairs side by side ready for use. For me the tripod (nut crusher) is a no go. The middle chair lots of people recommend. I did not feel comfortable in it. I felt like I had to really slouch or laying back/ down to try and get comfortable. It had no back support for my size and was not going to work for very long. I felt the most comfortable, stable, relaxed and back supported in the larger third option. This chair was design for 330lbs and held my frame just right. For added back support or complete upright seating I added my inflatable camping pillow with camping shirt (everyone should carry) to the backrest. I will pack the slightly larger item to have the extreme comfort and relaxation when stopped.
  12. Here is something to look at http://www.cjdesignsllc.com/products/cj-designs-husky-701-enduro-led-headlight-replacement-kits/ When you change out your headlights you are no longer DOT legal. It says they are working on a DOT version. I wonder if you could wire it up so the smaller lower LED light is your low beam and then the upper comes on in conjunction when in HIGH beam mode. I did something similar on my 990.
  13. Hand Held Radio Class

    Monthly "Communicator Gateway" Workshop Date: Saturday, November 11, 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 dual band 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." 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 the Yaesu FT-65, Yaesu FT-1, Yaesu FT-2, Wouxun, Kenwood, Icom, and Baofeng models other than the UV-5R. We teach each model radio in a different group and use your RSVP to arrange the workshop. Thank you. . . . Rob K6RJF Assistant Section Manager (Training) P.S. If you changed your call sign or email address, please send updated contact info to k6rjf.rob@gmail.com.

  15. Garage stuff for sale

    I will take the wall safe. Thank you
  16. Sorry you could not complete the planned trip. Sounds like a nice ride. Still seemed like a cool adventure. I hope you try again.
  17. We need to set the date. Anyone up for leading so we can firm up the date. I talked to Christie and she has spread some of the ashes at the track, but saved some for us to take to Mexico. First round of Arnie shirts sent out today.
  18. Way to much going on as well, but we are due for a Maintenance day and the trails and rangers really need it. Glad to see people joining in already.
