My first Dj mobile? A Dodge Aries K. Seriously. I remember one day making a turn when a side door opens on its own and my limbo pole flies out into the street! I could write a book!

(There's actually a part 2 to this story but I'll tell it another time.)

2003 Dodge Caravan SE (the short one)....

It holds 2 B-52 ACT-18s, 3 Am Audio DLS-15p, 2 PV PR-15's, 1 SKB mini gig rig, 1 skb rack case (10sp), and all my lighting equipment plus a TV monitor and CD+G player, and all of my CDs and my huge Rubbermaid tote for the backup mixer, CD player, and miscellaneous wires.

The best part is I can still see out the rear view mirror when fully loaded (not me....the van!)

:yeah: My dj ride is a 95 black jimmy with a custom trailor. I installed a few strobe lights beneath it to make it stand out when I unload.

The S7000 is a great camera!

I happen to have the previous version of your camera, the Fuji S602Z!

Look familiar? :lol:

or another way, instead of using up CJ's bandwith attaching, is if it's already hosted on the internet somethere, just link it using tags and the images url:

example: Image just take out the spaces so the img tags touch the url

Ugh!

But then you have to promise to resize the image yourself so that it fits on everyone's screen! :lol:

The other reason for resizing an image
to a smaller size is to make the file size
small enough so that it doesn't take
forever to download . . . especially for
those who are still on dialup . . .

Which I'm not!

But even on high speed cable internet,
it took that big picture file a few seconds
to load!

I generally resize my pictures to no larger
650 pixel wide for internet use!

And a file size of 75K or less is preferable!

CJ . . . I'm sure you have the power 8)
to resize that picture to bring this thread
back to fit on the screen!

Our rigs

Postby robertcap » Sat Apr 16, 2005 7:49 pm

We have two trucks we use. The small one is a 1992 Ford E350 Cube Truck with a 15' Box. The larger one is a 1995 GMC Top Kick diesel with a 24' Box. Both trucks have lift gates (for us old guys) and ramps.

Thought I had a pix but can't find it now.

I only use magnetic signage so we can take off the advertising when we are parked in a hotel lot over night. The DOT regs go along with the magnetic signs.
