Some things aren’t allowed in prison.
Joe Huffman – Comment while driving home from GBR.
September 9th, 2012
[This comment was made on our way home after we were detained because of a little incident.
You see, we were originally planning on driving straight through prison. No stops, don’t bother doing anything just stash the goods and go. Well as we rolled up to the scene we started playing the game of, “Stash the goods”. We were by no means close to the border either.
On the upside it was a chance to move around and stretch, however I know I wish the stop hadn’t been necessary and I’m reasonably sure others would agree. We are reasonably sure that someone either got really lucky, or really unlucky. The other person was in the middle and got the joy of being air lifted. Joe and I both think there were two people on the motorcycle involved and they only loaded one in to the helicopter. The bike itself had a second seat too. But moving on…
While we were standing there taking pictures and the like, after stashing the goods, Joe then ponders the following: “I wonder what the legality of our knives are.” For you see, neither he, nor your humble scribe bothered to remove our knives and stash them in bag of holding. To which I reply, “you’re probably fine, it’s a simple locking blade, I on the other hand am [email protected]#$ed.” I then smoothly unclip my knife and slip it all the way in my pocket. I don’t feel like finding out how California views spring assist first hand. As I do this, Joe replies with the above.
I felt it quite fitting. Joe and I were able to escape prison a short time later. With many telling us to get the hell out of dodge.
We had no further problems as we made our break for the border. –B]
