Yep. It could definitely be much worse!

I copied some pics from the S5 to my laptop today. Even with the 32 gig card and 16 on the phone - they've gotta come off. Got about 6,500 pics off. Need to move the card off next. Then backup to the 1T drive or is it 2... Once Isee what I've got I will reconsider buying cloud space.

Wayne... yeah, yeah...

So where do you plan to pick up US 2 and where will you exit. It's 2,500 miles long.

You might not want to start here...

Will always be grateful to you both for taking the time to visit with.

BTW - we went plain and simple tonight. 2 14" Tobin's thin crust pizzas. Nuthin but the crust, sauce, Italian sausage and cheese. Hard to believe 6 people were fine with just sausage. Lol. There were a few slices left for take home. I better check on that.

Well if you have a full terabyte of pics, I guess you take quite a few. Not sure I'd trust cloud space as anything but secondary backup storage - especially with drives being so cheap these days for so many tera's.

I feel the same way, but don't have near a T in pics. I wanted to get them in 2 places - the hard drive and the Segate T drive.

I did get the free Cloud for Annie after I blanked her phone...

About 90% of a new rear deck and handicap entrance ramp is now in place at our Youth Centre. . Tomorrow we will be back at it around noon to finish the decking and install the railings. The wheelchair height railings are still on back order but we will jury-rig a wooden (temporary) railing for the interim. I will take pictures tomorrow to post but I think we could be attacked by a rogue tank and the tank would lose. Hopefully it will be able to pass inspection on Monday.

Good morning Marty!
Yep - sleeping in here in Carlock. Clear blue sky and sunshine today. Hope you have a great day. Did you get any pictures at the market?

One more week like we have had so far, and the rest will be gravy... She bought another table, which added to our 'startup' costs. Now, if we can refrain from buying more for the business until after next week...LOL, we'll be in the blue, or green, however you want to call it....but not red. This time, we had a really cute little attention getter as it was warmer out and Little Eli came along, and waved from his pack n play at everyone walking by, then I took him to the swing for awhile and he charmed the crowds( ok, well, the market folks and the passers by) with his cute smile. He liked the swing. He finally had enough as we were packing up to leave and got a little crabby because he was sleepy... hope he had a good nap so his mommy could lie down for a bit too! Wish I had thought to take a picture...

Wish you were a little closer I love peach butter and fresh butter crunch lettuce too! We wish for fresh produce here - I have some planted but not near as much as you.

Wayne - there are only a couple other US 2 hills mentioned in the Mountain West guide. Let me know your plan and I will post them. Looks like a good route to Glacier NP... rpms up, speed down, engine brake / retarder on and you should be fine. As I recall you run with the engine brake on all the time don't you? I do not. Don't recall - but think you have the Garmin RV 760. With the sharp turn warnings and speed limit change notifications, seems to me you would be fine.

So watching the world go by, saw a pickup pulling what looked like your average 18' to 20' ski boat yesterday - and somehow a tow dolly was mounted to the boat trailer and a car in tow. Seen lots of boats behind 5ers but that was a first.
