It's gonna take more than BBQ to get me anywhere near that new jump
Me thinks me smells a stinkin attitude.
Don't go gettin the idea this is some kinda bribe or something. Nobody has to come out here and no one is forceing anyone to jump something they don't want to or probably shouldn't be on.

I happen to like to eat and my boys and I can finish off a shoulder by ourselves without much trouble.

Norfolk Virginia? Well Tar River is an hour from Raleigh and 3 hours from Charlotte if that gives you an estimate.

Whoa. You took that too seriously. I know your not trying to bribe anybody, and I appreciate your hospitality, and your trails, I was just joking around. I appologize

I hear ya. I have canceled my trip Tenn this weekend because of the gas shortage. So, TAR will be open this weekend.

I think that $120 may be a bit of an exageration though. I think it's about 80 miles to the heart of Greensboro from Tar. Round trip of 160 miles, assuming 20 miles to a gallon @ $3/gal is $24. Even stretching it, 200 miles at 10 MPG is $60.

Think carpooling with people who drive neons like me.

you're forgetting one thing.......a normal car carrying the average person would cost about $60-80....but if zach comes then it is a normal car carrying a troll, so the cost automatically doubles :D ;) :dancing:

heh no extra cost for the troll, BUT i do have a Chevy 1500 and thats no normal car. i just put 30 bucks of gas in it and barely got 1/4 tank, 30 x 4 to fill it up at yesterdays prices is 120, today they went up. granted both trips have only took a little over 1/2 a tank round trip i still gotta have gas to go to work.

See, my math ain't so bad. Comes in handy figurein' out building things too.

I guess Zach's math goes like this; 1500 x $120 / 3 = $$$ + ???? :confused:
or Who's willing to carry Zach up here to HIt the Big'un.
