RE: photobucket

I started one of the longest strings ever on this website: Avion truck campers. It had over 550.000 views and (I think) 3-4 thousand posts with photos. One day it was all over. No one from RV.net thought to ask if they could help with this issue with PB. So, the best site in the world for Avion truck campers is not longer active. Its Photobucket, of course, but this site could have safeguarded our hard work with their own photo hosting or become an advocate with PB to save our string.

RE: Thanksgiving #38 More of the same Southwest camping

Ah! Dave and Lynn, first time I've logged on in months - and that's because I spotted another of your TR's. BeBop Deluxe? My band was the Offbeats.... still is. Great work, beautiful photographs, sensational inspiration. D and Sweet Jane

RE: Lukeville Crossing

Talleyhoe, many thanks for your advice. You know, I feel like a fish out of water using my little car instead of my truck camper. Jane wants to conquer Oaxaca style mole, so we had reserved a spot in a cooking class. I want to learn Mexican cooking too, so I reserved a class...then we learned you can't take your truck camper over the border. Still we'll be driving from Brownsville to Tampico to Puebla then to Oaxaca. Anything we learn we'll appreciate. So, thanks again. You are a sensational moderator.

RE: Lukeville Crossing

Jane and I stumbled into the Lukeville crossing by mistake last Spring. We had been camping at Organ Pipe during the desert bloom in March. We went sauntering out of Organ Pipe, following our GPS, to see more of the bloom at Anza Borrega, Calif. Suddenly, we were at the border crossing at Lukeville. We literally had no idea the GPS would take us there. We parked and I talked to US Border Patrol agents who were busy going over some guy's late model Cadillac. They said I'd have no problem crossing in my truck camper. So, we drove up and passed into the Mexican border: Me, Jane and Hula the mini Australian Shepherd. We were rolling in our 1967 Avion camper on a Ford F350 diesel. A nice Mexican border control lady looked us over and asked for the medical documentation on our dog Hula. We said we didn't have it, but Hula had a rabies tag around her neck. She said, OK, but next time you need your dog's papers. She said that it would be nice if we had passports, too. But, we didn't. She waved us through. We got stopped on the highway to Nogales by Mexican officials, and they did go through the fridge. But, there was no problem with anything including the dog. Later, we pulled over to eat at a truck stop and left Hula in the pickup. When we came back we discovered that she had eaten the GPS. There were tooth marks all over the thing and it wouldn't work. Luckily we found our way to the border crossing where the Border Agent had gone to college in our town - and after exchanging pleasantries he waved us through. Reminded me of crossing the border when I was young. Back in the 60s. I have now learned that you need a whole lot of papers to cross the border into Mexico. In fact we are going to Oaxaca next month and I'm in the process of getting a TIP for our Honda Element, Mexican auto insurance, the Tourist Card for me and Jane, and the papers for Hula. We have passports. I had planned to visit Mexico in our truck camper, but it appears that you can't get across the border with my pick-up truck. So, we've had a big change in plans while using Airbnb for places to stay for a month or so. I think that the border from Lukeville to the West is part of a free travel zone that has different rules than the other crossings further East. I doubt our experience is helpful, except that border crossings are never predictable. Now to me and Jane and Hula. If anyone can give us advice about crossing at Brownsville we'd be very appreciative. Should I try to get my paperwork online, auto insurance in advance etc.???? Or anything else I should know. Thanks and happy trails. On edit>>>> I don't mean to hijack this string with my note about Brownsville. Maybe I'll post it later.

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Kayteg1, God bless you. The Firefox plug in is working and it appears that folks are archiving. Joe Ichi, PM me if you have any luck. Cajun, you too. Let's get this thing permanent.

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

I think that the plug in for Firefox is working???? its hard to believe, but so far its working. I'm going to go back further and see.... ITS ALIVE!!!!! I dont know how this is happening and what life support is required, but the photos are back. I'm assuming that Photobucket will take note of this and pull it all down again. Does anyone have any ideas how to capture this while its still working????

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Hi Cajun and Pete. I'd like to continue. I enjoyed the true generosity of the members, sharing their experiences. I enjoyed being surrounded by other like minded folk who were close kin but often going after different ideas. I enjoyed the wonderful trip reports that made my camping so much more worthwhile. But not here. There was not a finger raised by the Forum proprietors. Nothing in terms of push back to the sites that held our images. In fact no solution whatsoever was proposed or discussed. Why in the first place did the site not bother to host its own images. Instead we all got hassled when someone would post an image larger than 600pix. I remember Whazoo getting taken down for the effrontery.

RE: Trip Report: Across country delivering Sleepy's camper

The pix are down, unfortunately. That's certainly one of the key parts of a trip report or any other thread on this Forum. I've been there and done that. We certainly need a solution but nothing seems in the offing.

RE: Trip Report: Across country delivering Sleepy's camper

Steve and Sally, it was an honor for Jane and me to host you. We hope you enjoyed our piece of the earth, I think I remember you saying so after you all had the 2nd Mint Julep ;-). This is a truly magisterial trip report. An amazing tale of cross country travel. We enjoyed our conversations though it was mind boggling to learn how much traveling that you do. Hope to see you all again. Perhaps in Europe. D+Jane

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Thanks to everyone for their thoughts and advice: JoeChiOhki, Sabconsulting,Silversand, user113 and others including Ticki2. I don't know if I can rouse myself to pull down images, store them and then replace them into a forum that is so utterly indifferent to our concerns. I get it that the Forum is "free" and that there is a place for truck campers to swap ideas. But, when something like this Photobucket business happens I would expect the mods to be all over the issue. Else, why bother? This string was put together by selfless, thoughtful and generous campers over years in the expectation that it could be helpful to future Avion owners. Its gone. Unless I find some relatively easy work around, or hear from the Forum that they are working with us on a solution, I am standing down. D.

RE: Whazoo goes Gramping

Dave, I just saw this and felt the grand passions of a grand father. Unfortunately, none of my three have had children...so I am wondering about renting out your two??? I unfortunately, don't spend much time on this Forum after the debacle with Photo Bucket ruined a thread that had built over 6 years. But I'll surely check into your doings from time to time. Sweet Jane and I might even make it to your neck of the woods at some point.

RE: Any TC-er's traveling to observe Total Eclipse 2017?

I'm in Carbondale,Illinois, the spot of the longest totality. We are being inundated with folks, including the NASA observation teams with dozens of scientists, several planatariums from the midwest and abroad, and news people by the boatload. We're hosting a TV network in our Airbnb and putting a trailer in our side yard for their crew. And yes, there is real danger of roads closed, infrastructure collapsing, and law and order breaking down as we watch a surge of perhaps 100,000 people converge on our small town. We are almost alone in not raising our fees on our BNB. I don't like being gouged or gouging. So, we like our situation inside our fenced 3/4 acre compound in the middle of town where a lot of you folks have camped. And by the way, in some sort of spooky coincidence, Carbondale will be in the center of the next total eclipse as well. A planetary record?

Great energy! Great job! Very inspiring...and fun.

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

hotobucket workaround: Found this today. https://fixphotobucket.com/ Copy and paste the URL that Photobucket is currently giving you for direct links, and this site gives you an updated URL that is able to go shared (looks like it redirects through their own servers?) Just use the URL - the BBCode they give you is incorrect....hence all the BS issues with photobucket. Please explain this again. I went to the URL you suggested but the link was broken.

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Jefe, I think we are on the same wavelink. I, too, have become tired of the apparent indifference of the forums. We should never have been using a 3rd party to host the images. That should have been the responsibility of the Forum, in my opinion. Of course that would have been costly, so there has to be some sort of balance. In a more general sense, the Forums are technically dated and increasingly tired. I understand that FB and other social media have decimated the numbers. However, what is at stake here is the work and energy, not to mention the enthusiasm, of a huge cohort of Avion owners. We came together, accidentally, and created the best site for learning about every detail of the Avion TC. I didn't have any idea that my string would turn into this gargantuan forum of almost 600,000 views and almost 4,000 posts. its unlike anything else on the TC Forum. And I have never once been contacted by the management of this Forum about this remarkable string. I don't now if I have the energy or the confidence to fix the images that I posted much less those posted by others. So, I think the string is in serious trouble. If you want to migrate, let me know. I'm interested.

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Thanks D1 and others, I'll look into it. But, I really don't have the time right now to devote to this project. We'll see.
67avion 07/04/17 06:18pm Truck Campers
RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

I'm going to look into pulling all my images from photobucket and repost them from another portal. Are there suggestions as to a reliable 3rd party photo hosting?
