Bigdaag,

You could take a picture of it and when you develop the film tell them to put it on
disk or CD whatever you like and fits your budget. Then you could attach it to your
e-mail or put it on the net.

Try locating a do-it-yourself store such as Kinko's. They have scanners
that you can use to scan your own photos. Pop them on a floppy and you can
load them on your PC to use for wallpaper...etc., and attach them as email.

I use Mystic Photo Labs. For $10 extra they give you a CD with jpg files
and put the photos up Kodak Photonet for a month. I use that service for my
web site http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.mindspring.com/~hacklerl even though I have my own
scanner. I use the scanner when I have one of my old photo, slide,
negatives that I want to scan. Their URL is http://www.ford-trucks.com//lc/lc.php?action=do&link=http://www.mysticcolorlab.com/

Get a sony Mavica digital camera. It uses floppy disks, and all you have to
do is upload it to the computer after taking pics with the camera.

For safety and reliability you should tow no more than
the lowest number, which is the numbers in the manual.
The bumpers built for more, but your truck isn't.

Six times!!! Man, where do you live? :-) I'd be gettin' a little paranoid.

========================

I live in Phoenix.
I know this is unusual, but they were all stupid things by other people;
One ran a stop sign, two made left turns into me, one was a hit by a Mall
Security Pickup while my truck was parked (!), one was by a lady distracted
by 5 teenage girls who simply changed lanes into my truck on the freeway, and
the other one was a lady who backed out of a parking spot into my truck while
I was passing behind her.
I never found the bulls-eye, but I'm positive others could see it! ;-)
The stop sign runner and both of the left turners were serious; the large
truck (and the height) kept me much safer than a 'nimble' smaller car would
have. None of these gave me a chance to avoid the crashes.
The truck was a bright blue F-250, with a white shell on it, super cab, long
bed. Not what could be called invisible.

I was in Phoenix via Luke AFB from 78 through 81. (plus a year in Denver
for tech school). Some yutz wrote an article in 1981 about how Seattle
drivers are worst than Phoenix drivers. I did a who bunch of research on
the drivers in Phoenix to dispute the Yutz's statements. Keep in mind that
these are 1981 facts. At the time, statistically, Phoenix had the worst
accident rate per capita in the nation.

In my own experience of driving for 24 years the worst accident I was ever
in was in Phoenix. A head on involving 5 cars in the initial impact.
While I was being treated, someone plowed into the whole mess. On the way
to the hospital, someone blew a red light and almost got t-boned by my
ambulance. Two weeks later on my way home at the same intersection, my
screaming stop (while freaking out) saved us from getting t-boned by
another red light runner. Within a month one of the guys in my shop got
nailed at the same intersection.

I visited Phoenix last summer and noticed the proliferation of signs
pointing out Phoenixs' laws about running a red light... I think most
of that is due to the snow-birds, though.

Given all that, if I had my choice I would return to Phoenix.
