Just over my self imposed limit. :o

I guess its back to the general draw for me.

Congrats to the very generous winner.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Tag prices are insane right now.  Auction tags will correct with the economy, but some of these states are gonna be up the creek in the next correction.

Cracked me up last night. Auctioneer tried to start at 20 and it went nowhere. 15, 10, then 5k and it took off and within seconds it was over 20. Ok dude. Why not just save everyone some time and jump right in there!

Auctions are no fun if they don't start low and have some action, that's all the fun before they have to write the check.. :chuckle:
