Yes, but a gallon of gasoline occupies 128 oz. An ounce is both a measure
of weight and volume (the fluid ounce). 16oz. to 1lb. and 16oz. to 1pint.
Gasoline weighs about 25% less than water:
gasoline=approx. 6.3lb/gallon (varies depending on blend)

I quit working a few months ago so I'm retired again. I felt like I was
wasting my time doing DOT inspections. The night shift hours were horrible.
With the commute time I was gone from home about 14-1/2 hours a day. You
know how the 2-2-3 schedule works. I would have stayed if they could move me
to the tractor shop but they wouldn't do it until a position opened up. With
the downsizing that wasn't going to happen any time soon. People are leaving
but they won't open any positions to replace them. After I left they didn't
replaced me either. They had to pull a trailer mechanic from another shop to
cover the inspection lanes on my shift. I think they want to close that
terminal but they won't tell anyone.
Did you ever use the stacks that I gave you?
Yes i know how that is, the 2 2 3 schedule can be a killer. glad your
retired now ya got time to play. we have discussed a get together on the
other forum maybe we can actually get one of those together here this
spring maybe. let the holidays get a little further behind us though i
unfortunately the 05 met a ill fate before that project ever came
together, but i now have a 96 f350 that's looking like it'll need some
exhaust work sooner or later. if i dont decide to use them on this truck
i may just wind up offering them up to someone else that wants
them...i'll have to think about it and see how that plays out.
We'll have to do the N.GA chapter get-together before you leave. Steve (Full
Pull) called me about a week ago. He's still in NH but he keeps talking
about moving to Roswell. He's afraid of moving here right now because of the
tell him to bring the rain along and he'll be alright LOL.
well have to figure out a kinda central location for everyone to meet.
maybe a ryans or something in atlanta? i dont know, you know that part of
the state better than i do.
There's guys in Dalton, Canton, Cartersville, Ellijay, Roswell, and that guy
who got rid of his Dodge that lives in Warner Robbins. You can invite him if
you want. Everyone is north of Atlanta except him. I don't have the space at
my place to host anything. It'll have to be someone else hosting or we could
meet at a park somewhere. Red Top Mountian on Lake Allatoona?
I haven't been over there in a long time. I suspect it's a dust bowl. I
think it fills up quick in the warmer months but because the lake is so low
the boat ramps are closed. That might make it easier to get reservations. I
think it would be a good idea to do it where there is enough space that we
won't bother anyone else and have camping available for anyone that wants to
stay overnight. I'm open to other suggestions.
nawww sounds good to me, run it by the others and lets see if we cant
find a date open that'll work. im off this weekend so ya know how to
figure schedules from there. i need a couple of weeks to get caught back
up with the $$$ been out of work for 3 weeks on medical leave and the
short term disability pay out was a JOKE.
Aren't your dog weekends Fri, Sat, and Sun? Mine were Sat, Sun, and Mon.
Red Top is having a meet and greet with the rangers next Sunday (20th). I
think you are working that day. It sounds like it's going to be like an open
house ($3 parking fee). They are supposed to have literature and info for 63
state parks available. It would have been a great opportunity for you to
come check out the park and see exactly what they have to offer. I hate
trying to make arrangements over the phone without knowing what is being
Iman, when folks are talking about miles per gallon, it is typical to talk
about distance per volume. The 128oz Abby refered to were "fluid ounces",
not Avoirdupois, Apothecaries or Troy ounces. There are 29.573 milliliters
to the fluid ounce.
