    Well, my theory would be~evaluate it on the basis of what is "2 weeks"??? ` nobody really knows man but as long as you're one of those who want it and get it, it's about that many.....

    np :thumbsup: But I tell ya what I would do- I don't know what state you're in, but I would do some "ping" experiments from where you live to Wauseon or as close as possible. Do a bunch of them to come up with an average ping time - Then, calculate that against a world clock. The key being it's based on the time that both Amy and Garth actually received them averaged together, the way I understand it and that puts the starting grid in order. I may have a slight advantage because geographically, not far from the mail servers and I use the same ISP ~ but, I've not been as successful as I would've liked to be so who knows, but that's my theory. If it was meant to be, it will be..... and they will show up on the X - If I get one, I will be putting one up I already have, and honestly it's a pretty cool looking one imho ;)

    Well, I'm hopeful but won't be the end of the world if not. If I score yeah, have 1 to go bye-bye. It's going to be a good week either way, got that purdy CS Hog Badger on it's way from Dober that will ease any bruised feelings HAHA!

    UH-OH~ update ~ email :D :thumbsup:

    If only I'd been awake when it was $10,000...
    And Jerry had already provided the extra clues...
    And WatermanChris had already said "Hand of Gemini"...

    'Cause I wasn't going to get it without those hints.

    But it sure would have been nice to be able to order 25 Forsaken Geminis and only have to kick in about $40 of my own money to cover the shipping.

    I was lucky enough to score 3 of these. Being a little longer and with the penetrating tip I do prefer these of my TGLB’s (although I love those as well). Who else scored??
