Technology is cool!!

I just bought a TomTom. We were maybe planning a summer road trip and thought it would be a god idea. We went about three hours north of our home this weekend and spent the night in a little cottage/Inn, we did a little fishing and swimming and just took it easy for a couple of days. The GPS came in handy a couple of times!!

Also, which team will he play for after un-retiring?

a. Minnesota Vikings
b. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
c. Toronto Argonauts
d. Miami Heat
Not enough money in Toronto....maybe he will play for the love of the game....ya right!!

One thing you should remember about staying at any of the AllStar resorts, the bus stops at all three resorts most of the time, so you spend a lot of time on the bus picking up and dropping off people between resorts. But getting dropped off at the front gate is very handy.

Ya think that's far north?

Here's a link to the town I grew up in. Ft. McMurray, Alberta

The town motto was, we're not at the north pole, but you can see it from here.

FED: It's a sad day for fishermen. I'm sorry to bring you this news:

Cheating Scandal Rocks Bass Fishing Community

And as a public service announcement, according to CNET.com, it is apparently legal to rip movies from your own collection of DVD's for your own private use on an iPhone, iPod, or other mobile device. There's a link to software you can get for free up till Aug. 9 to be able to do this simply by "liking" their Facebook page.

They did hire him, but he retired before they shot the commercial.

As previously stated, free parking at the parks, but for MK, don't drive. Last August, we drove to Animal Kingdom and it was great. Then, we rode the bus to DHS, and wanted to leave, but that bus was literally 35 minutes. 3 TIRED boys, 1 TIRED wife, and 35 minute wait... not cool. Bus to Downtown Disney, though.... parking there is rough in the evenings (after 7).
my votes would be:
MK: Bus
Epcot: Bus
DHS: Car
AK: Car
Water Parks: Car *with conditions.
DTD: Car before 2 p.m.
But, that's just me, and the rest of these guys have spent WAY more time in Florida than I have.

I got to give the guy some credit, he did some darn good driving, now if he was in a older model all done up with that kind of driving it would have been a longer chase, but any car is not faster than the radio, so your gonna get nailed one way or the other

Today is my DS (Hunter) 5th B-day, It's also his 1st huge hermit crab race in Ocean City NJ, we are going to hit the Rain Forest Cafe in AC on the way, and hopefully he will have a B-day win at the races, he's up to 6 crabs now (Blue shark, Big Bird, Leafie, Ben, Meatball & Nemo) 3 local champs, lets see if they can pull it off. I'll update you guys when we get back

This has been a hot topic amongst my fellow tournament fisherman.....Essentially, he is lucky he took off and did not have to face the wrath of the fisherman he's (probably) been cheating out of cash for the past few years...

It adds up, and you can really get tagged for this...considering you may win a $55,000 boat, you immediately jump to Felony Level...

This guy had been on a hot win streak-----wonder why that was?
