I think we went through this with a "Chevy" pickup ~ let's see, knowing how you pack and if you loaded the roof like you normally do, I am going to guess, 843.5 boxes (Taylor ate a half box when you were not looking). Are we talking case lots or the individual cookie boxes? If case lots, 35 cases minus one half box.
I hope more then that.... I only want to make ONE trip.
LOL!!! To funny!!!! Bring some over my way!!!Kathy
I can hold over 123 cases... or 1476 boxes in my mini-van. I could have hauled more but I didn't order more. I figure if I would have filled it to the top (not ON top)and loaded the front seat I could have taken another 20 cases, for a total of 140-150 cases.Now a Chevy Truck can hold just about the same... just thought you would like to know.http://allaskangal.blogspot.com/2006/03/yum-yum-cookies.html
I considered going back to your posting several years ago and see how many you hauled in the Chevy. But that is cheatin and I wouldn't ever do something like that! However, I must have won something since my guess was closer than anyone else. No, it can't be a box of cookies, I think your daughter already got me on her list.
You did win!!! You won the opportunity to buy 8 that is eight boxes of cookies; and it will only cost you $32.Jen and Rodney are coming up this weekend, want me to send them down??
I figured out the life expectancy of my cookies if the Snow Cats transported my cookies south, I figure that they will leave Anchorage with their cups to go filled with hot coffee. By the time they have reached Girdwood, they would have their coffee finished and dunked six (6) boxes of my cookies as a snack. Stopping in Girdwood to get fresh coffee, they would dunk the remaining two (2) boxes of my cookies before reaching Portage. This concept will take some serious consideration! I had previously considered Saint Patrick's Day, give or take a day or two. Taking into consideration the natural instincts of all members of the "cat" family, their ability to be stealthy and quietly stalking they prey prior to pouncing, this could be one of those times and I may never see my cookies.
I bought plenty so my pack might not eat yours, but you better not put your trip off!
Just for the record the Snow Cats do not like or consume coffee so chances are better that your cookies could make it south of Portage, and we also were hit by the little wolf so we will have more than just your eight boxes to consume. Considering the number of rabbits we can catch and eat on the way south you should be safe if you want to hire transport for the cost of a box of Samoas...
How did I go to school with you for four years, and never guess you were a girl scout?Every once in a while I think of all of us in the "early" crowd in freshman hall at HHS. Of course, I started in Homer in the middle of that year. Not sure why you were early. I was always early because mom was dropping me off before heading to teach school in anchor point.But I would have thought that you were also long time friends with some folks that I now know you might have only known for a couple of months.I especially think about you two girls and Zach Nehus being friends, but Zach always looking down the hall at Robin Walls and the blondes bending over to put stuff in their lockers.Do you ever wish you had the maturity and intelligence that you had now when you were in your high school body? I sure do.
I wasn't a girl scout back then. When I had daughters, I wanted to give them something I didn't have or maybe I lost it in Jr High. Leadership skills... to be able to stand up for themselves, independent, caring, to have an opinion. I also wanted to pass down the sense of community, that doing your part will make a difference, that I had gotten from my parents, and kept.We moved to Homer when I was in 5th grade. Once I started High School, my mom would dropped me off before she headed to work (HEA). Then I'd hang out in town until she got off at 5. I didn't want to ride the Anchor Point bus, and I think she didn't want me standing alone on Bay Crest Hill waiting for the bus.I think Marlena started to get her mom to drop her off early, I didn't do a whole lot with out her. When I look back I would say... Yes...there are a few things I would have done differently. And now my daughters, are starting to bring the same issues home.
