Tonight, on my way home in the dark, a red fox ran across the road in front of me. I have never seen one around home before, and this one was less than two miles from my home. I am celebrating one of the little joys in life.

I recommend either Bar Harbor Lobster Company, or Peekytoe Provisions for a lobster roll. Both can be reached on foot - take the Shore Path for nice views. Stewman’s Lobster Pound is also popular if you want somewhere right close to the cruise ship....

A couple of weeks ago, we had a fox run across the road in front of us -- five times in a row! Seemed every evening as we came home, he'd dash out of the bushes and cross the road in front of us. Then we'd roll down the window and talk to him while h...

*Update - figured it out.* Um, where do i find the clue? I tried looking at your logbook under Box of the Month. I'll be in town through the weekend for my daughter's surgery - looking for some fun stuff to do.

I am celebrating one of the little joys in life. Those are the best kind. I live in town in Visalia, CA but across the street is a ponding basin where, inexplicably, a fox lives. I’ve seen him (her?) on our property a couple of times. But here’s my f...

I was able to print OSM in the past but not now. Is it still possible. Could it have anything to do with the recent Windows 10 update? I find several things have changed with that update.

Up front: I have never tried printing OSM maps... What I do.. is use screen captures / shots whatever you call it... CTRL Prt Sc on my computer... and then save that in MS Paint or what have you... after that you can edit the image to fit your need....

OSM... like in the board and group Name... OpenStreetMap. This is an open mapping site where people can add to and enter new plots of information to the map database... some you can use and some you don't need but someone else might like it... Putt...

I was curious and googled and joined. I put several real addresses into the search and got no results found? I use google maps but I was curious about this one.

OpenStreetMaps is all about editing the database, not about actually making any use of it. For using the maps, they offer a listing of various applications: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Using_OpenStreetMap#Ready-made_online_maps On my phone,...

Like 7, I’ve not tried to print them but also like 7 I just take a screen shot and print that. Much easier for me and I can adjust the contrast in PS and get a better map if I choose.

To answer 7's question......I'm trying to print from my computer. I can print by grabbing a snip and them Print from file but it only prints a very small part of the page. I've tried landscape and portrait w/o any more success. I don't use my phone f...

I was poking around over there this afternoon while having lunch... for the direct site, it was just about as I said..., cut out and print elsewhere... They did have some stuff in the Using Maps Wiki... I have to go back in for the names, but there see...

As Kirbert says it isn't about using the maps... but even non members can browse around the map that is displayed... you just can't contribute... and YOU are the search engine... eg If I want to see a map of something in say Georgia, USA... I would p...

But Google Maps clearly uses OSM data in their maps! I've entered stuff before to have it not only appear on OSM maps but appear on Google Maps as well. Yes, that was evident even 10 years back when I started contributing to OSM database... most of the...

I know where that is and would start at the GA / FL border most times. So, Florida Georgia Line?

Might get a simple cellular radiotelephone though. Personally, I have a radiotelegraph. There is nothing like the feel of a metal key between your fingers. And the di-di-di-dit di-dit of a message coming it. Ahhhhh! The nostalgia. ;-)

We just used a key for CW on shortwave... but yah! let's hear it for straight keys... but if you were using RF keying, it paid big time to have insulated knobs on there... big surprise sometimes as to where RF energy travels on metal...

Hi Sagacorn! I am not sure if this is helpful, but one thing I found is if you select the Share button (little square with arrow curved to the right) and then select Download, the OSM map you see on the computer screen will be downloaded to your comput...
