The new onsite fill out a form reports are boring and not very useful. I miss Pink Car Bob reports. Just my opinion.

Yeah, I agree. The most useful on-site reports are from Mike and Temira, neither of whom use the new form. I thought PCB's reports were pretty entertaining also, although you needed a special decoder to figure out what he was talking about half the time. Too bad he cracked a bad joke and got booted off.

AMTRAK and 4.2s. The rest was just wrapping paper. Smile

Change is hard to do. I now have to drive down look for myself to get an accurate read firsthand. Thanks to Temira's report I get a head start her reporting is less expensive than my $100+membership. Please note many of our frustrations with the new model. Also note this is my first post after all these years.

Why don't a few of you get together & start a webpage or blog, then give a bunch of reliable people access to post on it? You'd have a private onsite wind report page. You could actually do it here, just name a post "Current Gorge Onsite Report", but then you'd have anybody able to post, might get messy.

Like the Hatchcam page? That's a joke, right? Sad
