GTG Idea's

On our way back from the SSS event we came up with several things that could assist with our experience. I'll start it off..

Walkie Talkies
More power points (you can buy splitters from wally world)


C'mon nate, eric, etc... I know we talked a bit about this.

Also, as an added bonus - whenever you can... travel in a group. I noticed that I didn't become tired since I always get excited seeing other superduties, and you can box in and smoke out speedy beamers LOL etc....

CB's!!!!!

they saved Me, Geoff (Kornfed), and Joe (Stroker~x) on our drive out. We were able to talk to each other PLUS hear where the smokies were and also some funny conversations...

but, I was a skeptic on CB's cause we used 2way radio's going out to AZ for DITD with Stump -- but the CB's are defiantely the way to go!

Well...SOME of you have the GRMS radios. SOME of us have CB's!!! I still like the CB idea. You know you can get a cheap radio for $30-ish and a mag-mount for like $30-ish. Just hook it all up for the actual drives. (They make powerpoints power cords for CB's too!)

I can't believe you ended up going in I thought you said you were not

I wish we could have rode in a group but the trip was still fun

Ohhh...I went in....soley to talk to my Division Officer and file a formal complaint. Guess what? TODAY WAS A FRIGGIN' HOLIDAY at work. There was maybe 150 cars in the parking lot. I was soo mad!!! I called my DivO and she said to call chief, she seems to think that there was some breakdown of communication. I'm going to call tomorrow....and I'll probably still go in and talk to the Inspector General...b/c I'm going to get some of these leave days back, at a minimum.
