    On behalf of Cuz, Jerry, Darryl, Rat, "The Float Trip Director" and myself, we'd like to say thanks again, Jon for coming to help us out. The can of gas was much appreciated. If you're ever in a situation like that or any for that matter, just give me a shout. I will be there day or night.:wink:

    Don't worry about your club dues for this year, as I just have paid them in full. Thanks again!!:big_smile::wink:

    Jon, I sure hope you brought your camera with you. I'm sure you took dozens of photos from all angles of the seaarks that became bouys. How many laps did you make around them taunting them with the gas can? :smile2::smile2::smile2:

    Actually, I ran out of gas first, and then Cuz hooked on two me, not realizing it was gonna take more than 1/3 tank of gas to pull a loaded 24 foot SeaArk 5 miles up river. We ended up anchored up and tie together in distress!:crazy::embarassed::embarassed:

    Hey with these gas prices I dont think that will be the last time someone in this group runs out.

    If these prices keep going up I know alot of good bank holes

    Guys,
    It was my pleasure! I got what I wanted out of it (a good picture of $50,000 worth of boats anchored up out of gas):smile2: I am trying to get them off Jason's camera and have some good ideas for a "Good Post"

    Cuz and Grumper,
    Thank you for paying the membership for me. I apperciate it.

    Even though it was a rough night fishing it was nice to be on the river. One thing I forgot to tell you guys about was the refridgerator that ran into us about 3:00am i the morning. It was a full size white fridge that slammed into the front of the boat while we were anchored and scared the hell out of us!
    Jon

    The same way water heaters, freezers, pop bottles, dead hookers, etc get in the water - stupid people who think that once you throw something in the water it disapears:smile2:

    Spot on, theres always a small chance of rapidly rising flood waters picking up a fridge from someone's back yard and floating it down the river too. :smile2: As was previously mentioned, I believe I would have had to check it for beer too. :smile2:
