Thanks for the update guys - all of you. I finally got to read this post during a layove at Dallas-Fort Worth. Gone again for work, second week away this month. I really with I could have joined you guys, looked like a great day. It’s great reminiscing over the photos.
The last time I drove the Old Hedley Rd, it was gravel from just beyond the Saw Mill. I think the mill is long gone, I believe it’s a wood pellet plant these days. I raced a friend from Chevron at Princeton to Pickard Creek where the two hwys join again - both in our rally cars. He beat me, but not by much. And I know I had way more fun in my 510 Rally car - tearing up my rear timers I’m sure! Man, that was a lifetime ago! it’d would have been fun to drive that road paved.

I’m sure we’ll do it again, maybe soon if there’s fresh asphalt!

Anyways, thanks for the photos. I wasn’t devoid of 510 action this year, I just haven’t had time to write much. And getting photos on the site off the phone when I do have down time is an issue I haven’t solved.
I’ll get on it. Thanks for the write up.
Happy 510’ing.
Byron

I use an app called photo resizer. On an android. Still a hassle. I admit I don't post nearly as much as I could due to the photo size issue. All I have is my phone.

I used to use the same. With the newer versions of android you can resize them in in Standard gallery app that comes with the phone. Much simpler.
If no one from the future comes back to stop you from doing it then how bad of a decision can it really be?

I wasn't able to download fotos off my Samsung S6 to this site for a while. Then I found a remedy. I post all pix on to my Facebook and then from there I save it back to my phone. Tht compresses the foto size. Those saved fotos I then use it to download onto this site with no issue. Try it.

Morning World,

Another post on here, last one, promise. The "instant" winter I find quite amazing this fall, I have been hit with 2 strong windstorms already in White Rock, so many crashes in the mountains with the snow, bad, drivers and ill equipped. I have at least 2 days of raking in my yard to clean up all the cedar ends form my trees.

Funny to think just 3 weekends ago we were zipping through this section of highway with our SUMMER tires on.
