Flirting With TSL Addiction
Polar Bear Run
This is kind of far, but looks interesting....
Welcome to 10th Anniversary of the Polar Bear Run. This is a run that is always on the final Saturday in January and it is a mystery run. Participants show up at a set time and place for the run and until that time nobody knows where they are going - some don't know where they are when they get there. This year we are going to go to a place to see vehicles under construction. Then you will eat lunch if you brought your lunch money. Later that evening you can drink alcoholic beverages and brag about how cool the run was.
Many thanks to the Oldies But Goodies Classic Cruizers for sponsoring this 10th Anniversary PBR!</FONT size>
The exact meeting place for the 2008 run is the Tractor Supply Parking Lot at 6801 Lake Harbour Drive, Midlothian, VA 23112. We will leave at precisely 9:30 AM on Saturday January 26th. Click for driving directions: Directions to Starting Point. If you are late or show up at the wrong location you don't go. You must register for this run: CLICK HERE.
Question: Where is the run going to this year?
Answer: The run is always TOP SECRET. If anyone guesses correctly where the run is going they have a curse placed upon them to cause them to become stupid. There is no cure for stupid.
Question: Can you drive a modern car on the run?
Answer: Yes, but no one likes to see plastic and monkey metal mixed in with real Detroit and Dearborn US of A steel.
These girls are "dressed" right for the Polar Bear Run.
Question: What if someone breaks down on the run?
Answer: Hopefully a polar bear will eat them. Those on the run will throw trash and yell at you as they continue on the run driving past your broken down ass.
Question: Can antique foreign cars participate?
Answer: Yes, but they will be assigned to a special spot in the parking lot covered with kitty litter to soak up the oil.
Question: How much money should we bring?
Answer: Bring it all ~ I have stuff for sale you can't live without.
Yes, the dog survived the Polar Bear Run. But he's never going to be the same.
Question: How far are we going?
Answer: Make sure the gas tank is full and the bladder is empty. For those of you with TB (tiny bladder) wear your Depends.
Question: Will you be driving slow enough for the older cars?
Answer: Directions will be provided at the starting point for the geezers who can't keep their right foot down.
Question: Will there be bathroom breaks?
Answer: Empty the tiny bladder at the bathroom at Tractor Supply BEFORE we launch. Take a lesson from the astronaut lady and wear adult diapers just in case that pot of coffee you drank needs more room.
This cool cat knew what to drive on the Polar Bear.
Question: What if the weather is bad?
Answer: If some "S" word starts falling from the sky we will analyze the situation and make a decision at the same speed Congress does.
Question: Will we be on good roads?
Answer: They will be covered in something dark - I hope it's asphalt.
Question: Can I use my heater?
Answer: If your heater works you are allowed to use it as long as no one catches you. If you have a convertible drive it with the top down. If the windows still roll up and down in your old heap drive with them all the way down. This is a POLAR run ~ you should be COLD.
Question: Anything else important we should know?
Answer: Your organizer Fred Fann will accept gifts and cash donations ~ rectangular green things with lots of zeros are preferred.
The restaurant is planning some flaming hot food for car hobbyists.

Thanks Paul, but the start is three and a half hours from my house and I'm just not into it.
