Whatever your excuse is, PLEASE stop whining!
Yes, I COULD HAVE waited at Neptune's Net IF I KNEW THAT WAS WHERE TO MEET. Seeing as I did not have the route map or instructions, how would I know - and the radios were pretty much useless up there.
But when Robert and the first group passed me at the light (I was going into the 76 station), Rob radio'd me the 2nd group would be along in a moment and would hook up with me. He even called them to tell them. And as they pased by, I called on the radio to ask them to wait. But seeing as how you posted, you must have been one of the ones who didn't give a RAT'S ASS to wait, you were in so much a hurry to go. Not the way I would have done it. Considerate drivers would have pulled over to the side and waited like we did many times at the last drive. It would only have taken about 5-8 minutes as I didn't have to fill my tank that much.
And though I was not at Ralph's just as everyone was pulling out, I HAD called AHEAD to tell that I was on my way, so it was KNOWN that I was not there yet, but ON MY WAY. It would be a different story if I got there and everybody was gone already. Then yes, it WOULD be my fault. But for it to be KNOWN I WAS THERE and TRYING TO CATCH UP, there is NO EXCUSE for your actions!
