So can we fill up before we get there and make it through - or will we need a fill up while we're there?

We have debated this at several fires. The general consensus is that we buy our gas there. The thinking is that is we all haul our own gas then next year he may not have any. Two years ago, I had to go on a midnight retrieval with the truck. By time I got back to camp I was on E. Not a good place to be, 70 miles from the nearest diesel. The guy hooked me up with 10 gallons. I wasn't going to buy 35 at those prices!

I'm probably going to bring in at least one 5 gallon can + 6 in the tank for the bike. I typically use mid-grade or premium and I don't need to pay twice what I normally do for that.

I'll almost certainly have to grab some gas for the truck though.

I was looking around www.midwayusa.com over the weekend. They are out of stock on damn near everything. I did manage to find some cast bullets for my 45LC in stock.

While waiting for them to get here, I fired up the pot yesterday and started making some of my own.

Midway actually has some .25 ACP in stock.

But throwing rocks would be more effective.

Introduction

Not really sure that this is the right way to do this, but had some motivation to check in here today. Saw a yellow Tiger going the opposite direction on Bayside Rd just outside Leonardtown. Turned around and followed for a few minutes, but I was on a no-shit mission, so had to peel off. Had a ADV sticker on the rear so I thought I would check in here and say

I was on another triple......



Cheers SMIBs!

That be me..........I thought about pulling over when I saw you following me. I should have stopped at Rose Bank where you turned around but that road leads to my mother in laws

Don't be a stranger.
