It's about people asking the dumbest questions that you've ever heard at gas stations. Last week I had MC's 44MTI Hammertime and this guy walks up and says "God that's got to be a 24 footer" or "that thing must of cost $50,000".

It's about running through the mangroves on the way to Key West like you are in a dream.

It's about walking down Duvall in Key West and from 2 blocks away someone screams "OU Want Some?!!" and you reply "OU Know it!!!"

It's about having dinner and drinks with Randy Scism, Mike Fiore, Skip Braver, or Trond.

It's about seeing and running with the finest hardware imaginable.

It's about getting the E-Dock crew together with the SBRT crew(when their junk runs long enough to show up ) and talking smack over a few cocktails and having the time of our lives.

But most of all, it's about the people. We have met some of the best people in the country(from Canada to south Florida to California and everywhere in between) and consider them friends.
Exactly, it's all about fun and wet undies

Poker Runs are like posting or lurking here. It makes you realize that almost all of the people that share our love for the sport are great, fun-loving adults. There are always a few bad apples......not mentioning any names(but it starts with M and rhymes with asher)

I have run at the front, and I have run in the middle. I have finished at the BACK because someone forgot to get gas.....

I have never gone to an event and not come back thoroughly exhausted from the fun I have had. Sunburns, belly-aches from laughing, and rope burns from friends that can't dock straight all make for a great time.

Go to one sometime. You have access to some of the greatest people I know right there in Tulsa or on Grand Lake(except for that WarParty punk).

Hey, they just put me behind the wheel and say drive! Can't someone else check the fuel level?

There is one this weekend at Eufala. Usually a pretty good turn out. Nothing like Grand but I had a friend win $10,000 a couple years ago. Might be a good one to see how you like them.

MsPatriYacht...Is that picture of you guys on the St.Clair River? Looks like a familiar spot. What PR goes down the river? I spend my weekends on Gull Island/sandbars in the area. You guys going to be out this weekend?

That pretty much sums up Key West 05. My trip with the GLOC crew made lifetime memories.
