Tombstone's Travels

Ken, the author of Tombstone's Travels, stopped by with his new V-Strom. He has recovered from his accident on the Dalton Hwy after riding up to Prudhoe. I was hoping for an opportunity to visit before he headed out of town and since I am heading out of town tomorrow, today seemed good. I had also invited BruceW, Whojigger on SovietSteeds, who was up from Ketchikan over for dinner. We had a wonderful time talking, hearing about his adventures and accident on the Dalton. He and another friend from Utah are planning to be back on the road again within the next couple of days.

Here is the mandatory group shot as they were getting ready to head out. That is Bruce on his blue/white Ural Patrol. You might notice the green leaves but what you don't see is the 80°F temperatures that we have been dealing with. Pretty grim weather.

It was great to finally meet up with Ken as I thought I was going to miss him by a couple of days. He had arrived in Fairbanks when I was last up in Barrow and was originally planning to pass through Fairbanks while I was in Anchorage last week.

Blog touch pro is brilliant. It works so well my iPad is about redundant. Thanks for the tip. And pray for snow weirdo.

I still prefer Blogsy on the iPad and BlogTouch Pro is a distant second. I don't really like the html that it produces and the inability to write an online draft. It want to keep drafts local.

I was really glad that we had an opportunity. (Though only enabled by his accident)

Glad Ken wasn't hurt and that the incident allowed your meet up. It's an amazing community - this motor blogger world.

It is an amazing community. I've been impressed by just about everyone that I've met.

Yeah. Okay. I am figuring out the app and I agree. Blogsy is better for me as it centers the pictures and print and makes it very hard to post accidentally. However this app does make my phone useful as back up

It is a good backup method for posting especially if you are on the road. Sometimes it's difficult to get the pictures from the phone onto the iPad for posting through Blogsy.
