Ah! Sham may have understood this better. The term " Jeep in tow " made me think you would tow the Jeep behind a larger motor vehicle. Jeepgal... do you mean that the Jeep is your transportation from the Bay Area to BRC -- you will be DRIVING IT, and towing the small trailer with the Jeep? This cert...

Not me, Meat Hunter. I love it out there when the place empties out. (And the cacophony of noises goes away!)

Re: Elliot's Naked Bicycle Service, Piano Bar, & Much More 2017

I do not have a count on the bearings we brought. Might have been 100 = 50 bikes. Then we cannibalized spare bikes, our own bikes and whatnot.
Neither do I have a count on the Ashtabula repairs. Only the total bikes repaired.
How many bikes did your repair in all?

Elorrum... Photofuckit is now charging hundreds of dollars a year for hosting photos so we can use them elsewhere, like here. In other words... it is harvest time -- they want to harvest our money, after they have been growing us with a free service for years. That's why your bar photo disappeared. ...
