Thanks for the link to the fantastic trip report. I'll make sure I get it added to the sticky.

1,000 miles / week is what I plan for my trips while I'm still working so know it was quick but very enjoyable.

Took me a while to post this here because I had to come up with a new way to host pics...


It's a little more techie than a consumer picture hosting site....but I have been pretty happy using Amazon S3 for hosting pictures for forum posts. It is important to resize pictures and turn down their resolution a bit. That creates smaller file sizes which results is less storage and less transfer fees. Even so, I am on pennies per month to use it.

YMMV,

Truth is I have a server and a forum of my own but the gallery software is limited there and I'm not thrilled with using it to host pics like these so today I just made a new directory and dumped them all there [emoticon] Not as organized but easy enough.

Thanks [emoticon] We usually don't do that many miles but this trip certainly makes us think it's very doable and we'll have to do more of it.

Sadly, our next trip (very soon and another 1200 miles) will be for a funeral service so not with the same happy intent [emoticon]

Wow Erik, it's good to meet an "Old Friend" somewhere else along our life's highway. At least we do not have sawdust in our pockets when we are traveling. [emoticon] MM

Howdy MM, well met indeed! Don't mind my share of sawdust, if these darn arms will let it build up [emoticon] But it sure is nice to use the mobile milling office for RV'ing [emoticon]

How's things?

Wide open sawing but a Smokey Mountain trip planned toward the end of October. We will be in the 5th wheel so the TC will have to stay at home this time.

Very nice trip report. Such beautiful scenery in that part of the continent. Thanks for taking the time to put this together.

Not sure which lake this is but it's north of the Okanagan and south of Cache Creek. Nice views up here though!

Looks like Kamloops lake to me.
