This means you would need a monitor about 22" wide to fully display an image that large.
mr. stream25,

i believe that was humor (crude, but humor). i'll have to check my greeters handbook, but i sincerely think, you've been "taken in".

see post #404 - another example of crude humor, in response to mr. whopper; you know memory cards are made of silica, which is primarily sand, save the beaches, green planet reference thing... lots of pixels.... hahaha.... i knew you knew that, and were just kidding us...

please exhale.

Big images also quickly use up your online directory space.
Jerry, got the email... looks like a good start. I can start an album or feed the photos to someone for a consolidated album

doesn't everyone have a 37" WUXGA monitor yet?

smaller is okay... 1600x1200 ?

being an untrained photographer, i usually take high resolution and crop to a good shot. That way I can crop Mr. Bo's tail number off to avoid incriminating evidence.

being in a techno-geek family, we have big local storage and quite a bit in nooks and cranies out on the Internet. Space is less of a problem than bandwidth for us. Even with a 4mb/sec feed, pushing a session from the camera can take a fair amount of time.

just trying to be helpful here... having a common location rather than a bunch of sites splattered over the Internet is a really good idea. But if storage becomes a problem, we can host some content.

thanks

Mike

2nd String Greeter Placement, Fair Warning...

i just was assigned my greeters shift and position.

richard and jan think it best, if i was placed in back, on the left.

something about wandering about aimlessly all night long or something.

so i start my first greeting shift, thursday at noon.

see attached map for my location.

i'll be on the left side, anchored to that piece of earth jutting out. it's also a good place for my horses.

thanks in advance,

kevbo

I can't believe that this rally is less then 2 weeks away. This whole thing started as an idea to have a forums rally and then the 4CU comes along and now it's both. We have a lot of folks who will be there and many more that would like to be there. We even have a sister rally over on the coast.

Now it is time to ask the tough questions:
  1. Does everyone know how to get to the park? Cottonwood is just West of I-17 between Flagstaff and Phoenix. You can use Mapquest and get maps and directions
  2. Does everyone know about the pot luck? It's Saturday around 5:00PM and everyone is expected to bring 3 things. An appetite, eating stuff (plates, forks, etc.) and a food item. You can bring a main dish, a salad, a desert, what ever. With this many people we are sure to have a wide variety and plenty of good eats. I will tell you what Jan is going to bring, the same dish that she made for 29 Palms.....
  3. Does everyone know about the happy hour? It's Friday at around 5:00PM and you can bring a snack to share if you wish. Jan has gotten several items to munch on. The center piece will be the M-Ball. We have cups, salt and you know what...
We could use a few folding tables to place the food on for the pot luck, so if you have one, please bring it over before the event. If you are going to enjoy the campfire, please bring folding chairs. If you have never seen a campfire with different colors, you are in for a treat. I have a bunch of pipes loaded and ready to burn.

When you get to the park, tell the ranger that you are with the 4 Corners Group. They will give you your pass and point you in the right direction. You do not have to pay the ranger any money. That has been taken care of.

More infomation about the events of the weekend will be in your welcome pack that you will get at your campsite. If you need to contact me on Thursday or Friday, call my cell number. It is on the form at form

Please update this thread if you have any additional comments / questions.

Surprise...

richard & jan,

i'm in shock and awe...

wow, you talked about everything, INCLUDING the pot luck...

you didn't talk about the weather...

zip code for the park is 86326

the address is:

Dead Horse State Park
675 Dead Horse Ranch Road
Cottonwood, AZ 86326

i'm coming from 1 1/2 hours north of los angeles regardless, and i'm bringing lightning n thunder.

if everybody brought a little firewood, we would have a lot...

kevin

It is too early to talk about the weather. This week it should be around 70 degree during the day and get down to the upper 30's at night. maybe it will warm up a little bit more next week, who knows. Last year it was about the same (TCT Rally) and we never ran the heater at night. We did fire up the Cat heater in the morning to knock the chill off the trailer, but were never cold.

Jan and I are going up to the park Saturday for the day. My fly fishing club has the same area rented next weekend. I will check things out and report back.

Kev - You are only a few posts from Rivet Master status. The job we have hired you for pays the same no matter how many rivets you have. I'll tell you what, if you do a good job (I'm sure you will), I will have a surprise for you.

mr. bo,
thanks for the clarification regarding do's and don'ts...

so a Rally is like going to Las Vegas...

good thing you cleared that up

from the apparent record number of posts in this thread, i had mistakenly gotten the impression that a rally was more like the Twilight Zone

imagine a time and place.....

mike

Now it is time to ask the tough questions:[LIST=1][*]Does everyone know how to get to the park? Cottonwood is just West of I-17 between Flagstaff and Phoenix. You can use Mapquest and get maps and directions\
I want to note a word of caution for those searching their GPS for the Dead Horse Ranch State Park and allowing it to route you there. Our 2005 Dodge with factory GPS dutifly routed us to Cottonwood from CA last year for the TInCan Tourist Rally. We took the narow winding route from Prescott to Jerome with our 25' CCD which was an eye opening experience (think deer in the headlights look) and then drove through Clarkdale to Cottonwood for the park.

We followed the GPS verbal and visual directions to turn left on Fifth Street as I remember. THIS WAS A BIG MISTAKE!! Everything looked the same as it had in 1991 or 92 when we last visited the park and had to drive down a narrow neighborhood street and through the river in a wet ford crossing. However, since we were last there they built a new road entrance to the park with a bridge over the river. The old narrow neighborhood street is still there but it is a dead end with little or no room to turn around!!!

The rangers at the park told us that the old entrance had been abandond 15 years ago or so, but our GPS, built in 2005, was none the wiser. It knew of the old entrance but not the new one.

If you use your GPS to provide directions to the park and it looks like it wants you to turn down a small narrow neighborhood street DON'T DO IT! The new entrance has a sign at the highway were you turn to go to the park. Look for it and beware of instructions otherwise from your GPS. Otherwise be prepared for an extend trip backwards and then an exceptionally long happy hour!
