So we have our sugar, chips, salt, fruit, and nuts...what more do we need.

You forgot the Ritz, Peter Pan and Smuckers strawberry jam :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

OMG, I almost had heart failure those last laps with Chad telling Jimmie to back it off a tenth each lap...

I'm going home with 122 points... Ahhhh, that feels good after the last 3 weeks... :mrgreen:

And Mrs H is kicking butt and taking names, way to go and H is not far behind :mrgreen:

Had:
11
2
48
Bonus 48

(Real original, right? Pick the top 3 drivers in the Chase)

So 56 points x2 for Chase, plus 100 bonus! 212 points 8-) (Unless my math is wrong)

EDIT: My understanding of the points calculations sucks. A measly 162 points :(

If you have one in the right spot and one in the incorrect spot, then technically they are both considered on the "B" list as being out of order. To be on the "A" list they both have to be in the order you picked. You can't have one in and one out. If it happens where you have one in and one out then you are automattically are bounced to the "B" list. It is called all or nothing for the "A" List in points. I think you should be getting something like 162.

I thought if you had 1 in the right order and one out, that you get the higher points only? But I think beaver's math is right at 162 points. 30x2 for the 48 in correct order, 100 for the bonus and 2 for playing=162

I think... Remember, I'm old and forget stuff :lol:

Just from doing a quick scan, it looks like most if not all of us "are out of heya!!!"

Motorhome is packed, JD tractor is loaded on the trailer, and the Avalanche is bringing up the rear on that oversize rig.

I think it is time for a new JD tractor. Something with a little more versatility. I was looking on the online near home and found a good one at a fair price. The one thing you can't see that is listed is the 66 inch mower deck with bagger attachment. I already have spoken with these guys about a trade for one JD for another and they are really interested because they don't have any of the ones I have with the size mower deck I have. They say it is rare and would like to see it and possibly make an offer.

This is what I am looking at.

I spent a lot of time going back and forth with the administrators on this very issue during my first season and that is how I became to understand it better than some do. They may not like my answer, but who would you rather hear it from...somebody who you see on here on a regular basis that has tackled this already or somebody sitting in the cyberworld that you want to throw your computer at.

Beaver, I hope that is my anniversary gift that can be re-gifted. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

I know you would love to get out there and start using this machine to clean up all the leaves in the front and back yard as well as the driveway as well as cut the lawn one last time before snow flies, but I have a more important job for you that takes on much more meaning at the moment.

I am thinking of the honey do list right now and how long it is and how long it will become with this tractor with all its accessories and how popular you will become with the neighbors, but I have one small task for you first...FIX THE FREAKIN' FRIDGE :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

If HH explained the points scoring to me correctly, then I got 162. :D :D

So I'm in 21st place this morning (HH is in 27th & he only got 102 points for the Charlotte race)... we'll see where I end up after the points are added tomorrow afternoon, but I'll certainly stay ahead of HH. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: nee-ner, nee-ner
