Bets for poor Wounded Knee
“so this is the update for all you non WV cookoff people
Wouned Knee will be driving in the car for 8 hrs (i think) with Ruby and Spirit Coyote
I say it will only take 4 hours for him to pull over and throw there butts out of the car.
what do you think will happen?”
“I think he will break out the sex toys in the second hour. They may leave voluntarily...”
“I think we will tie him to the roof if he even tries :D”
“If SC talks as much as she posts, I'm thinking two hours. ;-)”
“duct tape is a wonderful piece of gear”
“there are MANY uses for duct tape! :D”
“5 hours, but I give him 2 hours before he looses his mind.”
“I don't know. I met WK and he may be up for the competition.”
“Just as long as WK keeps his inflatable girl in the shotgun seat he has a chance of makin' it all the way.”
“Beginning of trip:
The three of them load into the vehicle. All gunned up and ready for a great weekend.
Nice conversation going. everybody in a little hyper drive.
One hour later:
Smiles still on everyone's faces. Still exchanging stories as the first hour seemed to zip by. All is good.
After two hours:
WK's interest starts to wane. SC is still rambling at mach 3. Ruby is listening, but is finding that she may be starting to see raods that she shouldn't see. So, the possibility of getting lost starts to become a slight concern.
After three hours:
WK is telling Ruby that they should not be on this road. Matter of fact, they may just be in the wrong state. Ruby is concerned, but says very little. SC is still talking and totallly unaware of any potential problems, as of yet.
After four hours:
WK is cursing and threatening to take out his blow-up doll. Ruby is cursing and yelling at SC to shut the f_ck up!
After five hours:
Ruby says they want to stop for directions. They pull into a gas station. She asks SC to walk out to a man filling his tank and ask him. Ruby peels out and doesn't look back!
After six hours:
WK has had enough of getting lost. It turns out that they are now further away from West Virginia than when they started. WK is last seen hitchhiking with one hand thumbing it and the other holding a blow-up doll.
Ruby is last seen heading south!”
“What are the odds that they will here these words some time during the trip?
"Welcome to Canada, eh."”
“Canada is nice this time of year.”
“ive always wanted to see canada...howabout we skip WV and hear north? LOL”
“It sure is. They should be getting close to their week of Not Winter any day now.”
“This is some good #&%!$!”
“We aim to please!!
Please, aim carefully.”
hey go get your own thunder marko
this thread is alllll mine”
“No thunder this time, just a sprinkle.”
“I left the seat up....”
Yep, gonna be a good road trip!”
“I might bring booze and get loaded! LOL”
“will july hurry up and get here???”
“I'm with ChicagoMark on this one....I've met WK and I gott tell ya....Rubes and SC are gonna have their hands full!! lol”
“Ive met both of em....and i think my hands will be full! Im not posting bail for the two of you :)
Isnt there a thebackpacker.com trailtalk bail fund set up?”
“Canada eh? Heh Heh. Ranger Gord ...”
“By the way....I'll have you all know (and Gemini can certainly vouch for me) I am a damn good navigator. I have a good sense of direction and I can read a map. So I am not saying we won't end up in Canada, but it won't be because I didn't guide us there. ;)”
“why do I have the dueling banjo song stuck in my head right now?”
“Paging Ranger Gord. Report to your duty station immediately.”
“I'm from a border state way back when. I know how to get into Canada surreptitiously.”
“Hmmm, maybe it's you Ranger Gord was looking for when he went through the Geomobile with leather search gloves. "I just know he's got her in here somewhere!"”
"Turn off the engine, sir, and step out of your vehicle!"”
“hmmmm I wouldnt mind being searched by a mounty :)”
“But would you want to be mounted by a searcher?”
“Oooo, baby! I don't know if I'd hide from him. Maybe I need to be frisked! ;o”
“I call dibs!”
“Well, then. WV be damned. Canada it is!!!
(Unless there will be Mounties in WV)”
“gosh ruby, you think WK will mind about the change in plans?”
“My bet is that in the rare event they even let you all IN to Canada, they ain't gonna let you back in here.”
“why not? The let bloody chainsaw carrying axe murders into the us :)”
“Hey you take that back---I was BORN here!”
“a little late for me to post...but yeah...Ruby is a damn good navigator. She better than me that's for sure...[which normally don't mean much]
Really though...she didnt' get us lost one single time. NOT ONCE!!!!”
“Which could technically mean MORE than once....”
“I think Ruby will be sittin in the front with her feet hang out the car window and a map on her lap.
They will be drinking soda, which will turn into beer about 30 miles before their final destination.
Conversation pieces will be: Trail Talk and beer and crazy mike. Both WK and Ruby will soon find out that SC sneaked in the beer from the beginning. THey will realize this after they hear a very loud burp, and then smell it too. beer burp....nasty!!
Noncoformist: technicially yeah...but NO! We did NOT get lost. :-P

“I think you might have hit the nail on the gead, Gem!
And we even found Cottonwood Lake #3 without a navigatable trail to follow!”
“Hmmm....something tells me you two lost your way a loooong time ago....”
“somehow you guys have lost sight of the whole situation here..............getting there is only HALF the problem.

“Will we see Miss Gemini in West Virginia??”
“16 hours in the car?

“OMG I am sooo antsy. If I dont get tehre soon im going to go bonkers! I still have to figure out what excuse to make to my boss.... I havent used "family emergency" yet...”
