So I was taking my daughter to Lacrosse practice last night and passed by an AD in light green metallic finish. Man, I gotta find out who owns that, I think to myself.

On our return trip back home, we pass by a couple rat rods, and I realize where the AD was headed, over to the Wednesday night at Arby's in Leonardtown. Hey, it's only a stone's throw out of our way in going home, so we decide to swing by. As we're turning in, there sits the same AD on the side of the road, hood up and emergency flashers blinking away. So I stop to render assistance, and come to find out the owner was Billy Higgs. He said he's worked out most of the bugs, but still needs to fix the GAS GAUGE. So I ran home, got a five gallon fuel jug, stopped by Dash in, and a few minutes later he was back in business. Glad it was an easy fix. So don't you guys harass him too much over running out of gas!! grin Truck looks sharp Billy!

Good intel, Robert!! Oh B--I--L--L--Y--Y--Y!!!!

Oh yes we can!! (harass him for running out of gas!) And we will! Most other things, no. But running out of gas??? That's fair territory, as they say in baseball. 1st rule of running out of gas .... don't get busted!

Lock and load, boys!

BTW, Robert ... Are you planning on another demo this year? If not, no sweat.

Motion to the board to create a new award to be given at HC.

We can come up with a name for it, but should be awarded for the best, uh lack of fuel story!

Can I get a second?

How about an award for Expeditious Placement of Fellow Bolter Under Multi-Passenger Conveyance?

Geez, Robert...

Robert -- Fully understand. If schedule permits, would welcome your company for any length of time you'd care to stop by over the weekend.

I'll second that, Mr. Sergeant at Arms. Further, I propose that we add a rider to the motion to the effect that all motions made/brought forward must have the "Motion Tax" paid by the member making the motion. Said tax to be paid in beer. Payable to the SAA acting on behalf of the President. Further, I nominate myself and the Camp Commandant to be the Co-Treasurers of the paid motion taxes and that we be paid a stipend for our professional duties out of the collected revenues.

Jim ... Huh?

smile I love this event!

If It's important to you, it's important to us! Are you saying you'd like to make it up to Sweet for using him as a wheel chock??

Just a lame attempt to show solidarity with a fellow 'bolter who has shared the roadside...You know, one man's 'good intel' is another man's Blue Falcon...

I could hear the bus wheels rolling over Billy from here! But I get the point. No selfies from me next time I forget to reinstall the fuel line, even though SWEET asked me ten times if that could be the source of my problem.

You go Billy! I've met some really nice folks on the side of the road.

I'm not the kind of guy that would criticize or otherwise accuse a fellow bolter for running out of gas, knowing his gas gauge does not function properly. Because I know what would happen to me, next time I was out cruzing in my truck, the one with the non-functioning gas guage.

But, IF I was the kind of guy that would do that, I would wonder what the "H" is he doing driving around in his truck without a fuel container in tote, with fuel in it, knowing his fuel guage is not functioning properly???

But, like I said, I'm not that kind of bolter!!
