Crazy encounter...

So road up to camp 2 in Tyler's black diesel RR classic to join Mark leaving my 110 behind at camp 1.
The girls drop in and ask for a ride back to camp 1 because it's raining and Tyler drives them.
Asked Mark for a ride back to camp 1 when he leaves and he says OK.
Mark forgets and drives away because as auctioneer, he wants to be at the auction on time.
I jump up and take the shortcut through the woods and miss slapping the back of his vehicle by an inch.
So I hitch a ride with Jill in a disco complete with goat passenger.
Jill says, Robert you drive.
Meanwhile Tyler see's Mark arrive without me and heads for camp 2 to pick me up only because it is pouring down.

See Tyler and stop, but Jill's windows are tinted, so Tyler can't see me, so I toot the horn and he stops.
I can never get the Disco window buttons right so I roll down the rear window instead of the front.

Tyler rolls his window down and is looking at a goat.
Then I get the front window down and Tyler says: "What the hell, I leave you for only a few minutes and the next thing I know you're driving a goat around in someone's disco!."

I get out and thank Jill then jump in Tyler's RR.
Jill jumps out and drives away with the goat.
Everyone but the goat is laughing.

So I hitch a ride with Dana in a disco complete with goat passenger.
Dana says, Robert you drive.
Meanwhile Tyler see's Mark arrive without me and heads for camp 2 to pick me up only because it is pouring down.

See Tyler and stop, but Dana's windows are tinted, so he can't see me, so I toot the horn and he stops.

All correct except replace Dana with Jill everywhere you used his name. Dana is Jill's man and drives the arles 97 d90. It was funnier when we were drunk

I guess Dana and Jill, even if someone thought Jill's name was Dana, even though Dana was not Jill.
Mixed with lots of beer and one just might remember the goat's name as being Uncle Richard instead of Gruffy.

Mr. Robert, if you would switch to Corona Lite, like me, you wouldn't end up riding around with goats. Not that that's a bad thing, but you know.
