Here in the south end of Col's, the gas has been at least 10 cents higher than other parts of city. It was 3.65 on Wed and it was 3.39 in TN. I wonder when the price will stop going up.

Glad you enjoyed meeting "My Friend" and you can log him in under that name in my log book. I have not redone the clues to show him in TN. He enjoyed meeting you all too.

I repositioned the Pride of TN yesterday but have not gotten the new clues in yet. They are half done on my word processor but it will be a day or more before on line. I did manage to get my photos on the event page but I had a big snafoo when I forgot to have the waitress take a picture of our group at the Smoky Mountain Brewery. My Bad....cause it was a good looking group.

Thanks Again Hales Angels

Okay LBers... lets ban together to warn each other when the gasoline is going to spike. Surely there is a city that gets the high gas price first. Then the boxers in that city can send a flare letting us know the price hike wave is coming. Here's a link to some data on Knoxville gas prices.

Pretty soon us letterboxers are going to have to set up a board on AQ to talk about car pooling together to specific places for letterboxing. There's one in Cleveland, TN (43) that sounds interesting. Definitely will get you're gas money worth. Hmmm, need to start planting more in series style, now that's a thought.

Thanks Safari Man for the pic of me and my cool backpack. It was nice meeting you and your "Friend". Now that I know where the park is located, I'll definitely want to find the Pride of TN LB.

Well, gas is currently over $4 in CA. $3.89 for car diesel :( Glad I can get 450-500 miles per fill-up in my diesel Jetta BUT DERN and CRUD that's a lot of cash to drop in a fuel tank. Unfortunately this may affect how often I box and how far from home I roam. It will definately show up in higher retail prices. Why can't the Middle East just patch things up and carry on with oil production.

Hey Sarsasmo, Too bad we're not from the same parts we could do a lot of damage together. Cleveland is pretty close to your end of TN. Are you getting any ideas on going to visit there soon? How's bout it Rowys? Gas might go up again, we got to go before we HAVE to stay home.

I say we forget the Middle East and work on solar cars. Not corn fuel, not windmills, not nuclear... just plain 'ol solar cells, and the whole top surface of our cars can be covered in them. And there would be enough battery power to go a week without sun... incase you live in the Yukon.

Count me in. Where's, whens. I'm GOING boxing this week. Hopefully by Friday. I want to avoid this weekend for muggles. I want those 43! You guys are no where near me but I could meet you there. You guys could carpool to Cleveland. I have to drive OVER to it.

My dear mstrwndl, I am so glad my daughter has taken me away from the boards for a while, so I didn't have to be subjected to lies about such a dear inspiration! I'm with the others- I wouldn't have believed it anyway- you are still the bomb!

Let's go for all of it on Thursday, Sarcasmo. The weather is suppose to be nice. Never been to Cleveland so I'll better get the GPS out just in case since it's looking like I may have to go solo. Rowdy, I guess I can swing by the Mall on the way somehow for your little friends. If you change your mind I can have you back at least by 4. Just think (43) LBes...

Okay. I can do Thursday! Yipppee! I want to get an early start though. Like 10 am. It's just 2 miles but last time I did 2-3 miles and found 32 boxes it took 4 1/2 hours. State Coins in Peoria, all along a couple major trails. I could be wrong...prob longer distance. I ran out of water and got seperated from my bro cuz I kept finding boxes and he was OVER it. he is Spiderh8r.

The pride series has been relocated to an area S.W. of Pigeon Forge. All drive bys. I will try and get the clues posted in the next few days. (Mills park gets to much action for my boxes to last very long....not that they last very long in some more secure areas actually). Your welcome on the pic. If I could have figured out a smart alec remark about you I would have captioned it that way. But you seem pretty clean and beyond belittling comments. Now a few others are not in that catagory and I pounce when I get a chance. ;O) I also pounce when I like folks.
