    You're so funny, my dearest Manfred.  This may come as a surprise to you, but I know lots of bikers.  The couple across the street from my home belong to several bike-a-thon groups.  Often, during the spring, summer, and fall, a group of 15/20 gather at their home for one of the many bike-a-thons.  They usually meet up with several other groups to bike to various parts of Ontario for the day; or they frequently compete in long-distance events (i.e. Montreal and Quebec City).  There are a few very determined individuals who will bike across Canada in support of a fundraising activity.  And during the summer weekends, you can forget about going to downtown Ottawa or Toronto because all the streets are blocked off for the bikers.  So, my dear friend, I still think you are the best looking and sexiest biker on this planet.

    I had to laugh when your very thoughtful note arrived.  I got you so excited that you mailed your note to me twice.  LOL!  Regardless of how many times you may send a note, they are all greatly appreciated.

    May the remainder of your week be filled with lots of sunshine, happiness, and good health, my dearest Manfred.

    Luv ya bunches!
    Sweet Caroline

    Hallo Manfred,

    Danke für Deine tollen Bilder von L-E-L in diesem Jahr. Ich bin auch mitgefahren und fand es hart, aber toll.
    Leider ist mir dabei meine Kamerahalterung, die eine 500-km Probefahrt in Deutschland problemlos funktionierte, nach ca. 80 km englischer Strassen gebrochen. Nun meine Frage: darf ich ein paar Deiner Fotos in einem privaten Reisebericht (keine Veröffentlichung !) verwenden, den ich für meine Familie geschrieben habe ?

    Viele Grüße aus Limburg,
    Hanno (S31)

      Hallo Hanno! 
      Danke für dein Interesse an meinen Fotos! 
      Selbstverständlich darfst du meine Fotos für deinen Bericht verwenden. Ich freue mich darüber. 
      Ja, LEL war toll! :-)
      Munter bleiben..
  • Manfred...  thanks for posting this accident information so that we know what happened!!!
    Good use of Fotki Journals!!!  I hope that you get well fast...  You are strong and will be ok.
    It will take time,,,  Best Wishes / Tschuss...  Gary in NJ=USA

    I am sorry that I did not see this until now '-(

      Thanks for the comment, Gary!
      Yes, the FOTKI Journals can be well used. 

      Unfortunately, "My Journals" is found by almost no visitor of my album!  
      Indeed, in the panel menu are "My Web Videos", "My Journals" and "My Forums" selectable. But almost nobody clicks on these menu points, because most FOTKI users do not use this possibility themselves. 
      It is very bad, because in the panel menu is not recognizable whether the function is used or not!

      From my view, the selectable menu points of the panel menu should occur only, if these are used! 
      It is a pity that FOTKI is improved not further, but by missing service customers are expelled.  :-(

     О, весна без конца и без краю -
    Без конца и без краю мечта!
    Узнаю тебя, жизнь! Принимаю!
    И приветствую звоном щита!

    Принимаю тебя, неудача,
    И удача, тебе мой привет!
    В заколдованной области плача,
    В тайне смеха - позорного нет!

    Принимаю бессонные споры,
    Утро в завесах темных окна,
    Чтоб мои воспаленные взоры
    Раздражала, пьянила весна!

    Manfred hello! I have a question for you.
    Which program for the route you have is the phone?
    • Manfred Premium user Germany (Private)
      5 years 3 months ago
      Hi Alex! 
      I am glad to see your entry in my guestbook.  :-) 

      With my outdoor-phone MOTOROLA DEFY+ I use the App "OpenStreetMap for ANDroid", short: OSMAND. 
      You can install a cost-free version of OSMAND by Google Play. I found out, that also the Russian OpenStreetMaps are up to date and well detailed. 
      You can download cost-free maps here: http://download.osmand.net/rawindexes/list.php   
      Because you use downloaded maps, you don't need an internet-connection for your route-navigation. But when you have an internet-connection, your phone can send by OSMAND your actual GPS position at regular time intervals to any web-page. So a real-time tracking is made very easy!  
      I used the real-time tracking during TransRussia 2012. So my friends and relatives could see my progress ...and my standstill! 

      I don't know, whether I did answer your question enough. If not, please Alex, feel free to ask more!  I am glad to tell you my experience.  :-) 

      I have seen that TransRussia 2013 is even more interesting and much more demanding. Because of not yet quite cured consequences of my accident last year, TransRussia 2013 probably is too large for me. 
      I will be glad, if this year, I can finish London-Edinburgh-London. :-)

    С Рождеством  Вас!
    Счастья искренне желаю

    В этот светлый час!

    Пусть Вас озарит сиянье

    И конечно, много значат
    Дружба и любовь!

    Hi, Manfred!
    .. in my fotki-album also have ads, but I do not click in it ...
    ... maybe it is also bad and wild ads? ... if you see in my alum something bad - write me please, because from other point maybe other ads ...

    but of course - without ads it was more good ...

    Good day for you.

      Извините, милая Лена! 
      To show advertising-free album pages, I pay $ 2.00 per month to FOTKI! 
      I expect that FOTKI fulfils the contractual agreement. 
      But it seems, that FOTKI Customer Service was falling into hibernation! 

      Have a pleasant day too!  
      ...and have a lot of fun in plenty of snow!  :-))
