Mine just arrived and I'm impressed with the quality of the paper and printing. Great job DesignFlaw!

Already circled yesterday and today on the little Dec. calendar in the margins of January to begin tracking my days ridden.

I should try and make the events look "built in" to the calendar. More like abwirk scheduled. Then say to the mrs. "Sorry, I guess gotta go to Yosemite, they scheduled me for it. Can't get out of it". "Look honey, NAFO is mandatory, I will get docked if I don't go. It's on the schedule. SORRY "
Or you could just grow a pair, tell her to give you your pants back, and tell her when your going like the rest of the real men. :roll: :D

Your couch must be way more comfortable than mine... :stickpoke:

Well, it looks like mine is here in Albuquerque, but isn't scheduled for delivery until the 4th?? I hate this UPS/USPS mail thing. Anything that partners with the USPS is destined for failure.

Next year, it can be built in. I just need the dates and I'll add them so it comes pre-loaded with whatever events you guys want on there.

I'm glad you guys like the end result.

Ok. Turns out, that wasn't my calendar. That's something else I ordered. No idea where that dammed calendar is.

Mine got here today also. My wife thought it was a calendar from Yamaha until she realized there were bags and stuff. Then she realized they were pictures we took and was impressed. That's hard to do fellas! Nice work!!

Well - I'm back at the office from the holidays, and the first order of business is the hanging of the new wall calendar. Flipped the first page to find Miss January. Had a nice 1 minute day dream about having lunch on that lake shore with the mountain backdrop to entertain me. "X-D" out the 3 day weekend for the MLK holiday as my next scheduled riding adventure.

Quite literally on day ONE, I've already gotten my value out of the investment!

+1 Gunny.

Two trips planned this year (Arkansas & EOM), so I counted down each day on the calendar to our start date. :D

Good Idea with the count down, I retire September 9th, then it's off to ride the Dakota Adventure Loop in South Dakota followed by EOM and possibly Hooterville or SFO. Only 73 more work days of strapping on the turn out gear! WooooHooooo!

Calendars arrived. Delivered one to Pop. He was impressed.

I made a decent swap. I gave him the calendar for a truck load of split oak firewood.
