I miss working on old computers too, but that only means nostalgia ain't what it used to be.

Pretty sure I just saw you and the misses on Six Forks Rd heading south by KMart.

Yep. That would have been us. Just riding around in tag limbo... Someone go to Smithfield before the rain comes. Although it's pretty bright here right now.

Don't use anything smaller than a 12 Guage when shooting Volvos! I didn't even know it was Volvo season!

We are racing back from Charlotte having just dropped our son off at college. I would like to ride to mend my broken heart but the weather looks less than promising!

Hahahaha! You're right! Before Dave and I were married I backed straight into the side of his Volvo with my van. Crumpled the back bumper of my van. Did NOTHING to the Volvo. The thing is a tank! (Oh! And he still married me but is surprised when I do stupid things like that! Hello!?)

Yep its open season on V70s'...heres one I really like. I took it for a test ride. They have agreed to let me bring it to my Volvo guy in Raleigh to have it thoroughly checked out...then we'll make an offer based on what the report says...i doubt I will pay the advertised price... If this checks out...this is the one I'd want...

I drove this one too...front end hit a deer and they did a lousy job of refitting the bumper...otherwise this car is very solid mechanically but not in the best condition body and paint wise...

Yes, they do! And it's only $1.95/slice. The pecan kicks ass.

Good snag, Mooses!
I figured STBNE, Lonewolf or Dracula would have been on top of this one. If I'd have known you all were on it, I think I had one I could have thrown out there closer to y'all.

The whole way there we were figuring Dracula was going to Bruce us on his way back from the NC tag! Also surprised Lonewolf didn't grab it!

It was a nice ride and great food. The BBQ was good , but the fried shrimp, scallops and catfish was the best I've had in a long time!

It was dark on the way home so didn't see any good tags.

This one is a file tag from a try at the Multi-tag game (got Bruced). We took our son Brandon back to NCSU last weekend, so this seems like a good one!



If you can't read it, Brandon Station rd and Rutledge Ct
