Default NH to PA trip. Photos included.

I'll start a thread for our little road trip. I will continue to post pics as i get em uploaded. I'm sure some stories will follow

Here's some shots of tha big Cabela's from tha front....







Here's some shots of an absolutely gargantuan Largemouth Cabela's had in their 56,000 gallon aquarium. This was fish was easily 12+ pounds. It was definitely a Roland Martin bass LMAO. The pics do it no justice. To see it just hang in the back, and hover in the same spot was incredible. He wasnt scayid of nuthin'!






Here's another bassy. This one was pushing 10 pounds. The second time Brandon and I went back into the aquarium, so Steve could see the Roland Martin bass, we originally thought that this one was the one, because it was so big anyway. Only after walking 2 sections down did we find the real monster. But this one was beaut!



Unfortunately there were no Stripered Bassy's in tha aquarium. I actually saw no mention of Striped Bass anywhere, it was quite sad. The only mention of Striped Bass in Cabela's was the S247 t-shirt I was wearing. Got some good advertising in though.

If you had traveled a little further to Harrisburg, to the Bass Pro Shops, their aquarium is filled with striped bass.

BTW you were just a short drive from the seen of my avatar.

LMAO, funny you say that, cuz all I could think of was Bass Pro, but everytime I mention it, I hear "F Bass Pro", in stereo mind you, from Stevie and Brando. They have some underlying hatred for Bass Pro I think. Havent figgered it out lol. I've always preferred Bass Pro myself, only because I have been reading and shopping from the catalogs since 3rd grade at Sacred Heart School. I used to save up my paper route money in Junior High to buy tackle LMAO. But nowadays I'll shop Cabela's if I can get 5 or 10 off an order, but its usually tha same price so I shop Bass Pro.

Seems Cabela's is racist against Stripers. I'm not exaggerating, there was nothing Striper there. Well, if you count the little section of Atom poppers and plugs, that might remind you of a Stripered Bass LMAO.

Bass Pro - 1 (a better aquarium with Striped Bass in it? Add 5)
Cabela's - minus 3

HAHAHAHA

Yup, a few new phrases were coined on our little roadtrip. "Shy A-hole" being one from Brandon. Another from Brando was "Flinchah". We were outside of a McDogballs in Nazareth, PA, and a lady drove by......Brandon said she was "a Flinchah". Make ya flinch

Not 15 minutes after walking into Jim's house, and getting a little tour, we're all standing in the kitchen, and Steve Beanbottom lives up to his name and lets tha bad times roll. Tha dogs were out. It smelt like rigor, and Jim had to open the door for 5-to-10. Several hours later while playing cards, I got sick of listening to Steve and Brando release their swill, so I hadda come up with a line that would make them think twice about stinkin' up tha joint.

Soon after that thought, Brando decided to give it a go and let tha dogs out, and I looked around confused, and said......."Uh-oh, I smell latex!". Brando nearly soiled his slacks laughin'. He had no idea what to think of that. I broadsided 'em.

More pics coming.
