Hey! I'm about 30 miles south of Tremonton. What are you picking up there? Just over the mountain to the east is the Cache Valley and Logan - Tremonton is so-so, Cache Valley is God's country.

Went to college in Utah and lived by an apartment with five girls from Tremonton. We called them the "Men Makers" because they turned a lot of boys into men that year.

That must have been one hell of a high school there.

What this website really needs is a GPS deviced loaded onto Spider's rig, and a sticky thread that tracks his movements in real time, mile after mile, on an interactive map that's interfaced with Google Maps.

That way guys like cutthemdown know when and where to meet Spider alongside the road for a duel.

Weird Spider just disappeared.

Oh wait do they have wireless access in KS? We might hear from him passing thru a telegraph station.

Perfect! And there should be a flashing light that shows exactly where he is at every moment.

Plus we should be able to identify the home address of the cop in Oregon who shut him down for his bumper riding too low (or whatever it was riding too low ;D)

'Men Makers' LOL that would be girls from Tremonton for sure.

Guess there are three of us in Logan! Calling Tremonton so-so is WAY to kind. I work over there, I'd never ever live there.

The joke at work is if you had to would you rather live in Tremonton UT or Preston ID? If you've ever been to those two cities that question will keep you up for days...

You've paid it more attention than it merits probably ... it's just the random place where those latitude and longitude numbers fell. Actually 11 miles south of Balta or Pierce ND. .... funny part is it wasn't even latitude and longitude he was giving out, so it's all a BroncoBuff cluster*** anyway .... nothing to see here.

My particular brand of dork-iosity loves me some latitude and longitude. Anything with maps. I keep the LA/Orange/Santa Barbara County Thomas Guide on my nighstand for a little light reading ... :~ohyah!:

I like the way we superimposed Spider's truck on the map, though ...

Now we need to mount a GPS device on his rig ....

Make that truck photo into an icon ....

Link that icon to the GPS ....

And have the icon move across the map in real time so we can track Spider on his many adventures, or in case we need to make bail for him on short notice.

Okay I found it Spider ....


The LIME GREEN line is 6800 West, the street you want
The MAGENTA line is 11200 North, 12 blocks north of 10000 north
The RED DOT is about where you gotta go ;D

This thread is fun...




I live in Utah. I have family in Tremonton, live in Salt Lake near the temple (no, I am not Mormon... or any religion). It is actually pretty easy to find stuff in Utah, the grid system we use is convenient. I have traveled, and had a much harder time. There is nothing fun up north, if you get a chance come to Salt Lake. Its the most liberal part of the state, there are fun things to do. I'm going to the W Lounge tonight, its a very small club but I know the house djs... if you end up in this area I will be sure to buy you a beer

I love Logan.. my fiance is from there. The peaches from the valley are some of the best fruit I have ever tasted. It is amazing up there, visited a couple of times, love the drive up the canyon to Bear Lake.

;D if it was loaded , i wouldnt have made it this far , would have laid it over before I got out of Utah ... 84 has about 6 miles of 55 MPH curves on it , then the get on ramp to 80 off of 84 would have rolled me @ 10 mph if that thing was loaded ;D
I am top heavy as it is , 55 mph curve = 35 mph
