    I'd appreciate it if you could let me know.

    We just started advertising with a mobile billboard company and I'd like to see if anyone here spots our ad. It will be rotating with other ads but it should appear every 3 seconds. If you can tell me where and when you saw it, that would be great.

    Thanks!

    Jim

    Saw it behind the closed K-Mart on Jeff Davis.

    Just kidding.

    Would think it will be very effective due to multiple locations,,,,, but three sec? Is that enough time to read it and write down info?

    When you see it rotate, you'd understand. It goes quickly but reappears just as quickly. Even if people only got the company name, its enough to lead them to us. The ad is 10 feet by 6 feet, I think. Its pretty impressive and eye-catching.

    Few questions:

    What was Grapeshot doing behind the K-mart on Jeff Davis ? He quickly knew of a pretty seedy location..... Makes you wonder....

    Have you calculated the carbon footprint of this truck driving all around to give you a 3 second exposure? Are you offering carbon offsets to those taking your classes ? (Missed you at dinner. ) This kind of grief would be much more fun in person.

    Sorry about dinner. I've been wrapped up in funeral details and as of this writing, I'm awaiting a delayed Amtrak train. I'll be on the midnight train to Georgia.

    He's trying to pick on me - won't work. I saw the truck go behind K-Mart/flea market after being escorted out by CHP - Its a joke. Nobody else wonders about me - what goes through your mind, Doug?

    Then he's pulling from the anti's play book to pick on you with the use of such as petrol and lights to further your cause. Again - its a joke. He closed the posting with telling you he missed you at dinner and gave you a big smiley.

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    Speak up - don't mumble.

    BTW - is the BBQ still as scheduled - thought maybe a mobile billboard like the one that ProS is using would be a great idea around some on the malls in your area.

    Blade is very thirsty.

    I'm told that the truck was spotted on Broad St yesterday. We're going to advertise through NASCAR weekend so it should have a visible presence there.
