Bollocks to cars.  But the more i think about it, the better a horse is sounding.  Why couldnt i just ride a horse to work and Bass Pro Shops?  I will start pricing them out.  If anyone else is interested, let me know. Maybe we can get some kind of horse package deal. 

Dan, I will need a new GLBass.com decal for my horse.

Is it bollocks or bollox? I've never been sure...

I have also seen a nice farmer launch a boat in the past with a horse, but I did not ask him how cost-effective the horse was. I wonder how easy it is to get an emergency shoe repair??

As far as the decal... horseys do sweat so it will probably have to be a tattoo.

My buddy was complaining today about the price of hay to feed all of his wife's horses, so I guess you can't win.
Diesel is $4.09 at Kroger's in Owosso this evening.

I say we remove our gas tanks to make room for more batteries.  Then remove the outboard and line up the transom with like 10 or so trolling motors until motorguide or minn kota comes out with an electric outboard.

3.99 a gallon in Milford.  you can get it for 3.83 cash price at Mobil.  guess they wanted to get an early start to the holiday weekend.  my new truck gets 16 mpg so that is 25 cents a mile :'( :'( :'(

can afford to use the outboard,  might as well get rid of it.
