New to this....

Hello and good day Y'all!

I'm kinda new to this forum stuff so I hope you won't be too tough on me.... I'm a solo rider but have been on several great adventures with friends and am looking for some new buddies to ride with in Texas. My last adventure on two wheels took me from Weslaco, TX to L'Anse aux Meadows, Newfoundland by way of Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia! Prior to that I toured Alaska and even made it up the Dalton all the way to Deadhorse!


I'm a bit of a spaz when it comes to posting pictures but I'm sure I'll get the hang of it soon..........
So thanks for the opportunity to join and I look forward to meeting some of you soon!
Cheers,
Cat

You should do well here. Welcome and you'll have to post some ride reports as time goes by.

Re: New to this....

I think we can forgive being a spaz with pics, I mean, it ain't like the rest 'o us are perfect or anything!

But whatever, wecome! Pull up a chair, grab a cold one, and meet some good folks. (Maybe just alright folks, but we do our best 'round these parts)



(Or Scott, Tourmeister will get cranky! )

::EDIT:: I was going to suggest you come on out to our next Pie Run in Crockett, TX, but then I looked up Weslaco (Not knowing TX geography very well), and saw that it might be a *bit* of a hike for you!

Are you using Austin as your base? Nice pics too!

Re: New to this....

Welcome Spaz, I mean Cat, to a great forum! Lots of adventure riders here and a few of us street only riders. You'll like it here. A few of us are in the Austin area, too (see above post by M38A1).

Yes, be sure to post pictures. We LOOOOOOVE pictures!

Re: New to this....

Thanks Y'all for the warm welcome! I'm holed up in Quebec right now watching the snow fall and dreaming of new riding adventures........ I think I'll just take the snow machine out for a spin in the fresh snow!!!

My little bike is crying locked up in it's warehouse in Pennsylvania waiting to be let loose on the road! I hope to be back in Texas in March, until then I'll be reading about what you guys have been up to and posting some pics from my recent adventures! Weslaco is by no means home for me, it was just where I happened to be when I started my Newfoundland adventure. When I return to Texas I will probably base myself close to Austin someplace in the Hill Country, haven't decided yet.. ya I know my life is a little disjointed right now! But hey, as I said, I am a bit of a Spaz and as you'll get to know me, you'll find that I'm often on the go and full of crazy energy! So for now, I'll leave you with a picture of one of my favorite Icebergs from this summer.


Kinda looks like a Cat eh?

Re: New to this....

There's some pretty cool stuff in their Little Blue Tent site.... Worth spending time in there.

Dude, I totally love your "Yeah, I've Been Everywhere, Man" video! Too much fun to see all the places you've been, what a fantastic montage. what software did you use to put this together? I use proshow and find it a bit complex sometimes...

Crockett is much closer than Alaska, so come over for a piece of pie.

Cat,
I used Photoshop "Elements" for that although I think there are much easier programs out there now. Like the freebie Movie Maker that comes bundled with Windoze products... glad you liked it too!

Re: New to this....

If they are the quality of pics you post when your a "spaz" then you've set the bar pretty high at the outset.

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)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"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
