Willing To Help

This post was updated on .
Member's Map


From time to time active Bullnose Forum members may come up with the need to have someone on the ground to check something out for them.  For instance, looking at a truck that has been advertised on eBay or Craigslist.  The following members have said they are willing to help, as their time permits, if the item is close enough to them.

Having said that, it should be remembered that honoring any such request will be taking their time as well as fuel, so it would be appropriate to ask if you can reimburse them.  And before you ask you should look at their location with respect to the item and determine how far away it is from them.  In any event, click on the name and send them an email via the Nabble system if you think you need their help.

You can add my name to the list for the northern Arizona area, meaning Flagstaff, Prescott, Sedona and surrounding areas. I do work a rigid night schedule but I will try my best.

I realize that most of the ads will be Phoenix and Tucson. That is pretty far for me. I’m not saying I absolutely wouldn’t do it, but my experience (shopping for myself) is that the good deals don’t last and more often than not it turns into a wasted day and a wasted tank of gas.

Thanks, Mark.  But we may be going in a slightly different direction.  See what you think about the approach shown here.  Please let me know what you think.

You are now, quite literally, on the map.

Done - you are bi-located.  And, when in VA you are quite close to Bill.  Do you winter in VA and summer in Canada?

Close is a relative term in this case, straight line maybe, driving time about 1.5 hrs each way if the HRBT isn't at a standstill and you have to add in the $18 round trip toll on the CBBT.

Wow.  Pretty close indeed.  That's Taylor Mountain, on our side of town just down the road.

Mark - We don't want people to find you off this map.  Just know the town in which you live - although in a town as small as Skiatook......

Bill - Yeah, I realize "close" is a relative term.  Lots closer than I am to you.
