    How far would you ride to grab lunch round trip?

    Stupid?? That's just another "ace" in the deck of cards that is your life.

    Sending a custom route to an Android phone

    I have tried several short test rides with Kurviger. I have used it with offline maps with the cell phone radio signal turned off and the wireless radio signal turned off. Under those conditions if I go off-route it says it's recalculating but then announces that there is no internet signal...

    Sending a custom route to an Android phone

    Loaded and started a route out, cleared it when I arrived, and loaded the return route. Everything worked without a hitch. Kurviger allows you to set 50 way points and it announces when you are approaching one and when you pass it. On long, straight stretches one could add a few way points so...

    Sending a custom route to an Android phone

    Thanks, RossKean. It turns out that Kurviger has a seven-day free trial which I found out by subscribing. It appears to work fine. At least it talks to me. I'll try a short route tomorrow and see if it interrupts music to give directions and if it makes it from beginning to end without a hitch...

    Sending a custom route to an Android phone

    Thanks.I'm having a little trouble importing routes into OSMAnd. I'll try a monthly subscription to Kurviger for $2.49 first to see if it works at all. Then I'll go back to fiddling around with OSMAnd.

    Sending a custom route to an Android phone

    Thanks for the tip. I found the Kurviger website, joined up, and plotted a route. I downloaded the Kurviger Android app. I sent my *.gpx route from the Kurviger website to My Google Drive. I imported the route to the Android app and the route appeared in the app intact and without destroying all...

    Sending a custom route to an Android phone

    I have tried opening the text stream as well but Google Maps has already rerouted the turn-by-turn directions. It's useless for what I want to do. I was just wondering if others knew of a desktop mapping program (Google or any other) that can successfully transfer a custom route to some Android...

    Sending a custom route to an Android phone

    I've been trying to transfer a custom route made on either Google Maps or Google My Maps to an Android phone using embedded map links and the "send to my phone" feature. Searching the innerweb I see discussions of this topic running over the last 12 years without Google ever doing anything about...

    Second knee replacement

    I had my three-month post-op this morning. I can do anything I want, now. And it's misting and drizzly outside. I thought I would be riding on dry pavement today.

    Food and cooking.

    Received it, opened it, and tasted it. Delicious and thank you. Taste review in the PM. Wish I could have shared it with Ray.

    Second knee replacement

    I received a text from Archer about two weeks ago offering to join me on one of my boring short exercise walks since I can't ride right now. That is if we got a clearing in the recently oppressive weather. This would have been great because he's an interesting guy and, astoundingly, my wife...

    Food and cooking.

    Sent you a PM (now called a "conversation") with my address. Thanks.

    Food and cooking.

    Whoa, pardner. You better put those protective glasses back on. Do I have to ride to MO to test this sauce?

    Second knee replacement

    You probably have enough of those to give half the people in Oregon a permanent erection.

    Second knee replacement

    Don- I heard a similar story from a friend of mine but found no reference to it on the world wide innerweb. That, and that none of the surgical staff had heard it, surprised me. That's why it was so funny to them. Be sure to remember this if you go in for yet another knee replacement. Or a dick...

    Second knee replacement

    I first posted about my second total knee replacement in this thread: The six dollar man. I forgot to include a crucial part of that story. I went in early in the morning for surgery and wanted to write a message on my body for the surgeon. There is a big issue surrounding staph infections in...

    The six dollar man

    I had my second knee (the right) replaced October 18, 2021 so about 10 days ago. I'm not pushing it so hard this time if you ask me. If you ask my wife you may get a different opinion. I came home and did at-home post-op exercises that were brutal the first three days. I did some distance...

    Tire Question. Car Tires. For a Car.

    Tire shops can only legally repair a puncture in the tread. It is illegal for them to attempt to repair a puncture on the sidewall. Sidewalls flex like crazy and a plug or patch there can fail badly. Take it to Les Schwab or Discount Tires. They'll tell you if they can patch or plug it. If you...
