    Yep codes for me also at work but it does seem more of them are loading. I can view the ones that don't show by right clicking the code and opening image in new tab though.

    I cannot see the photos either. And Eric spells his name the traditional way. He might have been messing with someone :)

    Interesting....I opened the page and the pics ALL loaded. Hit page 2 and not seeing anymore TR posts went back to page 1. Now most of them don't show up.

    Question for the riders - what's with the shuttles? I thought you guys went out there to ride bikes??? :whistling: And walking the Snotch? That is the most fun part of TWE. You can't argue you were all too tired after being shuttled up the climbs :p

    I just got off the phone with GoDaddy and not particularly happy with them right now. I reached out to AndyB, he is currently in Europe with his girlfriend so as soon as he gets back, I'm hoping for some tech relief.

    As far as us being wusses? Shaaaaaaaadup!
    Go ride Kokopelli with me at a manly pace and see how you fare buck-o! :sneaky::p

    Later in another string I see Maxis on the rear too. You're the trend setter, you are, you are

    Well... Of the two pieces of technology that did not survive the Kokopelli trip, mine will be repaired/replaced for $69. I feel naked without it.

    Story to come:

    Here's some video from the 1st day. My camera was mounted to the stem cap so if you get seasick easily don't watch this. I'm not very good at this video stuff and my computer is dying a slow death so the video is long and it is what it is. @Mikie feel free to move the video if there's a better place to post it...

    It’s hard to condense 8 hours of great views and riding in to a 5 or so minute long video...
    Day 2 video uploading to Vimeo now.

    Some day 2 action, this one is much shorter. Camera was mounted to helmet, think I like the stem mount better. Rocks were larger than they appear...

    He is sitting, not riding, and is a few feet back, not doing some stupid risky Insty pose, so I am not cringing. Thanks for thinking of me and my disdain for unnecessary exposure risk.

    Nope... He sat on the edge, legs dangling into space! I cringed when I saw it in real life. :eek:

    Both videos came out great! :thumbsup:

    I'm hoping to get some of mine up by tomorrow... Today is the first day I haven't ridden a bike since we started Kokopelli last Thursday and I suddenly feel like I got run over by the shuttle van. Entirely possible scenario if you consider the driver... :D

    Hopefully it wasn't the shuttle van Gina was driving cuzz if it was your dead:confused:. She was a full on rock-star shuttle driver that meant business behind the wheel and I'm absolutely certain she would kick my ass up around my shoulders on a bike also...
