weather immediately on the ground right

after takeoff we don't have to wait to

get to several thousand feet and wait

you know 10 or 15 20 minutes for

everything to load certainly nice the

whole picture right now and it really

matters on a day like today yeah don't

catch up to us hey is that boy he's

gonna race that at Reno this year no

immediately is kind of jealous so yes we

got there to get fuel we had called you

know an hour beforehand before we left

Nashville to confirm that their price

was still 3071 sure as it was mark

they'd never mentioned the old thing out

of the runner yeahlet's of ab gas

remaining with you know no other today

you can hike that's gonna show we're

like yeah just top it all off means of

the tips every last drop you see well

not sure we do every last drop but when

you got about 100 gallons and we needed

about 105 plus locky so we just hadn't

opted me and that will get us the Spruce

Creek and we'll get more fuel there but

probably what to stop somewhere else

with you know similarly cheap fuel

prices so we can get it all at a good

price instead of half of it yeah but
