Updates

Hi Everyone!

I've been working on some organization and streamlining on our server here (got another usage warning from our hosting company)... that's a good thing! Anyway... we're all clean again. In fact, I would be surprised if response time didn't improve a bit with the cleanup. Moving forward, we may have to boost our bandwidth/storage space. I really don't want to purge any posts or images, so that really isn't an option.

I've added a small ad unit for non-authenticated users (non-members). It seems as though there are always way more browsers here than actual members (147 guests vs. 5 members as I write this), so I'll show them an extra ad, while trying to keep them to a minimum for our members. You'll see it once you land on the main page, but it'll go away after you log in.

I've taken down the online store. Amazon kicked all Missouri residents out of their affiliate program because of some sales tax law the Governor signed into effect... apparently Amazon didn't like it. First time I've been fired from anywhere. Won't go into the details, but thanks to everyone that purchased something through our link! On my to-do list is to design some 1300 swag (t-shirts, hats, mugs, etc)... not sure when that'll happen, but I'm hoping before Christmas time.

Anyway... I hope this finds you well. I got a chance to meet Brian Q. last weekend for lunch... it was good seeing him again! Can't wait to see the rest of you! Gosh... time to start voting on M&G 7!!

Take care!

M&G 7 Update

Hi Everyone,

I've added the last couple suggestions to our M&G 7 destination options.... Durango, CO and Sharon Springs, KS. Have a look at both locations. One of our members is especially passionate about Sharon Springs!

We'll start voting in a couple weeks.

Visiting Motorcycle Group Donates Food to Harvest Share

Hi Everyone!

I found this article in the PDC Courier Press and wanted to share. Thanks to all of you who participated and especially Conrad for taking the time and effort to get this set up for us. My interviewing skills need a little fine tuning... hopefully I did our family justice. :)

Destination ideas for M&G 7 can be emailed to me... depending on the number I get, we'll either do a bracket again or just one poll.

Home!

Got in around 3pm (beat the GPS estimated time by 1:15... kind of a fun game). Started on the chores immediately. All-in-all everyone fared well except a bunny that we lost to the heat. First tomatoes, tomatillos, peppers, zucchini, and fresh cold milk were waiting for me when I got home!

Like always when we get together, the time was amazing. Thank you to the folks who made their first journey to meet this bunch of great people and to all of you who keep coming back! Can't wait for the next one!
