Coast To Coast record

Well after their/His effort on a postie.
Pending the way they go.
It's hard to say.
The postie may not be as fast and cover the K's, But when you get in the gunbarrel. I reckon at times It was easier, less fatiguing on the Postie that on the Big girl.
Some of the things you hit without warning on the postie, I would much rather hit at postie speeds that 690/950 etc pace.
But I'll tip my hat to him, wish him all the best.
and If he is doing it as a Charity event i'll tip in also.

I dont know weather to write this on not.
But Some times I wonder if the risk over rides the consequence.
Vinny: What the fuck do you mean, replicas?
Sol: They look the shit, don't they? And nobody is gonna argue. And I've got some extra loud blanks, just in case.
Vinny: In... Oh, in case we have to deafen them to death?

Plan, what plan, there is no plan
