Re: Texas Adventure Riders Association

I am late to the party, just now seeing the action here but count me in as a Houstonite. I am not the most dependable riding buddy but the website will certainly help me keep track of events and attend the ones i can.

What would be very helpful and beneficial to us all would be if there was a section of the website with maps/gps files for routes broken down by region. Something easy to navigate without having to dig through forum ride reports. This would obviously take rider contribution but could help those of us who are unfamiliar with routes out of our area.

Probably because it is not dirt specific

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)

"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

That is part of my point, I love forums don't get me wrong but threads get buried and people lose track. Like the way he did it here, I forget which user it was but it is from the thread you posted under Big Bend routes: http://tautologous.com/openridemaps/BigBend/

Re: Texas Adventure Riders Association

A good way to search forums is to use Google and do something like this,

site:www.twtex.com big bend routes

That should only return results for threads/posts on www.twtex.com. Google does a better job than the forum's built in search engine sometimes.

You can do that for any site.

I understand what you mean about threads getting buried and then the info you want getting buried in a thread. That kind of search helps with this issue. Also, this is why I set up the Ride/Trip Planning subforum with the GPS subforum. I guess I could move the GPS forum up one level so it can be seen on the main forum listing page.

What time is your meeting Wednesday at Live Oak in Houston? Our Dual-Sport group normally meets at 7pm but I could make it earlier this time if necessary. Also I need to reserve a room.
