Most guys spend their time at Christmas shopping in all the stores in the City for the odds and ends they can find for stocking stuffers. We headed out through a blinding snowstorm at 3am on Monday and drove 16 hrs to El Paso, stopping along the way to pick up a couple of signs I had bought in NM over the internet as well as stopping in a little town to eat and hearing about a visible pump in a guys junk pile, which, of course, I bought and added to the load. We then made the serious mistake of allowing Seri to direct us to Scottsbluff NE, which took us an hr and a half longer route than we should have taken and landing us there at midnight in the freezing cold. The next day early we headed out again to load up some more signs I had located by calling Collectors previously and finally headed for home arriving again at midnight. Long arduous, but very productive “Christmas Pickin trip”. I love hunting signs and pumps! I even found more that I couldn’t load on and have to retrace some of our steps on the next run. Yes! That’s an original Frontier pole on the rack of my truck.
