I never ask nor accept gas money. I'm going out no matter what. My friends and I usually fight over the lunch bill,but thats about it. The funny thing is nobody ever hangs around on sunday night,when I'm still cleaning the boat at 9pm. I did a Poker Run a few weeks ago,a buddy with a 382 Formula couldn't make it, but let his 21 year old son take the boat.( He is very responsible).I have to commend him,dad said you pay for gas and you can do the run.He got about 9-10 of his buddys to pony up $100 each and had a great time. Quite the entrepenuer.
