Hello from Australia...
« on: January 29, 2018, 05:15:21 PM »

....but I lived for 30+ years in the Los Angeles / San Diego area prior to relocating down under, so I know the roads in California "like the back of my hand."

I've been lurking on aaroads for years, finally decided to join in on the conversation.

Too bad the aaroads shield generator doesn't work anymore - "if only I would have paid more attention earlier...."

Thanks for looking,

There's been talk of reviving it IF Alex can find someone interested in doing the job.

The tone of the OP suggests that none of us are being tricked again  :thumbsup:
The account approval process has improved, too.

I doubt we're being tricked again. I'll be darned if we are. I think "Linda" had probably had enough of us by now.  :bigass:  :rofl:  :banghead:


I genuinely believe that this is a completely different, much better person that is new to the forum. So with that said, we welcome you warmly!!  :nod:  :wave:

Thanks for the welcome everybody (and I'm definitely not Linda).

I'll be hanging out on the California side of aaroads, since I spent most of my years on the west coast.

It's always nice to see people who are as geeked out about roads as myself....

All the best,
