I'm having difficulty typing this with crossed fingers, but I'll manage. :)

By the way, guys, don't forget to let the organizers know that you're coming, so they have an idea or how many people will show up and how many spots are needed at the restaurant, I assume.

I hear gas is hitting $2.00 bucks a litre in ottawa.

Anyone know if thats true.?

chromius
09-22-2005, 10:17 PM
I'm in 100%

Dave...yeah I heard that too. They were saying on the radio today that there were some places down in Toronto that were already up at $2.00/L :eek: This is now just getting f***ing rediculous.

everlast
09-23-2005, 12:37 AM
There was a story on the cbc website about the rumors. That's all they were, but it caused people to panic and everyone is buying up gas like crazy. In TO, they heard it was $2 here. In nova scotia, they heard it was $2 in ontario. Now so many people talked about it (people were calling CHUM 580 today) that people took it as truth since it was on the radio, and now they are jammed up the gas stations too.

The petro canada by my place ran out of gas, which means supply is now running low (due entirely to the rumor) which actually WILL make the price rise.

Now, who do you think started the rumor? There will like be cries of price fixing if this turns out to be true.

But the premier says he won't do anything about it, no investigations into price gouging, no watchdog group and no 72 hour waiting period before raising prices. No wonder, since the gov is forecasting a 7 BILLION dollar surplus thanks to the GST collected on the gas. ****ers.

Bob Loblaw
09-23-2005, 07:04 AM
Unless the prices go up like mad and it costs $150 in gas for the Sunday tour, I'm in. :)

It went up to $175.9 here for a while at my corner gas station. It did go back down to a "reasonable" 116.9 later on.


From the Ottawa chapter site:

Final Details
RV at 8:00am, south west corner of Place D'Orleans mall, directly across from Tim Hortons. Take 174 East to Orleans and exit at Place D'Orleans Dr. Go to 2nd lights and go left into mall parking & drive to SW corner. Back in so sun shines on front of car (photo op).
DEPART at 8:15am;
All other details as per my 1st post
Questions/comments are welcome

By the way, the first thing my son asked me when I got back last night was: "So, did Dave drive like a madman again??" :P

09-26-2005, 07:06 PM
Bad day for me.

First, the car did not start in the morning, gave it a boost and thought by the time I get to Ottawa it should be charged up again (worked before).

So I was surprised to see so many bimmers waiting there at Timmies.
When it was announed to get going, my car did not start again ... dead.

Got a boost from Maurice, then when everyone else was leaving someone decided he needs some more air in his tires .... so we waited .... and waited.

Since I knew the route I gave then finally chase 15 minutes later.

In Rockland I had to slow down for a traffic light and noticed my car was slowing down quickly without my foot on the brake pedal. When I accellerated again my steering wheel was shacking like crazy. I pulled over and found that the right front brakes were very hot, so the cliper was stuck. That's what you get for not driving your car often enough.

I figured that the piston may loosen up again and continued with pumping the brake pedal a few times but the car was shaking too much so I decided to turn around and have it checked at a CT in Ottawa.

I stopped a couple more times to check and saw that it has loosened by itself again. I was about to turn around again and get to the meeting in Lachute when it started puring rain in Ottawa, so I was totally pissed off and went home.

Arriving in my garage, the rain stopped and did not rain any more all day .....

NOT A GOOD DAY!!!!! :mad:

I hope you all had at least a decent day.

Klaus

Bob Loblaw
09-26-2005, 07:26 PM

That's okay Al, I appreciate if someone likes my car, I don't care about the prices, allthough, thanks for your vote Jason.

Like I said, I just don't drive the sixer enough anymore, first I want to keep the milage down and then I am so busy with my other car throughout the summer, it really is now just a Garage queen. I hate to say it, but that's reality. Yesterday was a lesson for me and I will have to change this.
