Welcome Thovas, glad you decided to join us! And I don't have a clue on that one. I'll have to keep my eyes open.

Someone is taking a picture in that spot right now... and Mark's bike is less than 15 feet away from there as we speak. I have a few good ones that I want to post... I hope I find the next one after this.

Pretty cool seeing all the Austin pictures. When I was at the university my wife and I lived right across the street from the Armadillo World Headquarters in an apartment. If we left the windows open we could hear all the bands that played there.

We left in 1973 and I've only been back a couple of times since then.

Thanks for the memories.

It must be it was in the same shipment as the Creme BV500 I went to look at. I almost bought that Super but I like the bigger wheels on the BV500. I'll probably buy another scoot (Vespa of some sort) in a couple years.

Hmmm so I guess I'll let you slide as long as you stopped and ate at the salt lick on your way home.

Glad you are enjoying it. I live here and am enjoying the other locations where I used to live. (San Diego and Sacramento)

Duh! I was just at Vespa Austin Weds and I didn't even notice that rock patio and fountain. No wonder I suck at this game!

Don't feel bad I didn't notice it either. It is in the back so if you didn't go back there you wouldn't have seen it. Whenever I was back there there was a ton of scoots they just got in so they were distracting me.

Mark that made me laugh.. I almost rolled your bike over and took a pic of it for you... and Wade was there today too. My next one will be better. Maybe if one of us figures it out we could contact everyone else and do a group find.

Yeah, I sneaked a peak. I knew somebody had already gotten it though. I never noticed that fountain before! I guess I have always just been dazzled by all the scooters to look at.

Problems
I keep trying to post the picture but keep getting this error:

Error: Each attached image must be no more than 800 pixels wide and 800 pixels high

The pic IS the correct size any tips?

Hey! That sounds bigger than what I remember them being...hmmm... Sometimes, when my photos are really close to being the exact size, the site won't load them. I don't get an error message, it just stops loading and sits. I have a Mac, so I don't know if it will help, but... In iPhoto, I export the photo and then make it somewhere in the 300-400 range vertically or horizontally and this usually works. Whew emoticon

I know where that is. I was just across the street the other day noticing it. Are the hot dogs good? I love Chicago dogs! Don't think I can get there today, where's Steve? Laughing emoticon

Sucks that there were cars in the way for the other shot...

The Chicago dogs are great! They got it all just right. Peppers, bright green relish, tomatoes, onions. mustard, celery salt and the real deal vienna beef! They also make a really good chili dog.

I wondered if anyone went there, as it seems an odd location. But, I'll definitely be trying out a dog now! I wanted to open a stand shaped like a giant hot dog.
