Cooler = 50?
gas 50 x 6lbs=300

Airpacker,
you may have overlooked your cooler calculation. I find when the boys are out there tends to be a heavier cooler...well then again theres usually more girls too. Hmmm go figure.

Huh, min'es different, kinda opposite...

Me and a couple guys....probably 1200 lbs. Gas and men. Couple beers they got from the coolers still sitting on the beach might be in the boat if they grabbed one "to go".

Me and the wife....with all the crap she brings along about 7,000 lbs. of towels, crackers, cards, games, food, clothes to change, chairs, umbrellas...........

That's the way it works once you're married I suppose.....

Tantrum, you MUST be single...LOL! Guy's can't drink as much weight in beer as all the crap women bring along. That much boose would kill a 500 lb man.
