The event checkin starts on Thursday afternoon Apr 30. The actual event is Friday and Saturday May 1 and 2. Plan accordingly.

Steve, plan on coming up and spending Thursday night here in Newhall at my place, then we'll all get up early on Friday and drive north. Its about 2 hours from here.

Pablo,
OK I had the daze wrong. There is a caravan coming from Danchuk. I may tag along with them. Let me know when would be a good time for a phone call. I've got some input about the rooms. Thanks.

Just to be very clear here, Danchuk has postponed this event until same weekend in 2021.
Assuming we all live that long...

Take the next few weeks (during your self quarantine time) and get out in your garages and do something to your old cars.

I'm continuing the assembly battle with my Nomad.
Started working on prepping the hood for epoxy primer before I install it.

Looks really nice Paul. You built your garage sideways?

Its something to do with taking pics turning the iphone sideways in clockwise manner.

When I turn it counter clockwise and take the pic, then copy them to my desktop (which I have to do before I can post)...it seems to work better. For some reason, taking it like I've done seems to stack them sideways. Frustrating...

Can you put a tool on your upload page to rotate the image?

How would it know when to rotate them and not the others. Its a best practice to take the photos landscape when uploading them.

On another note, you should be able to upload them directly from your phone. Many are doing that. What is the exact problem you are having? Perhaps starting another thread on that problem would be appropriate.
