Not sure where to begin.
Guess here works....

I’m ready! I replied SOLD in the PCF thread and Im officially Leaving Redding Cali on a 8 Hour trip to get an actual MSPatton owned BCC table (made for Poker SuperStars) from the one and only Potsie/Jim @Potsie1 in Portland Oregon. Forget the fact it’s only $80, I get to meet JIM too (I have bought chips In the past from him, I see his “sets posted” and YES now I get to meet!!!)

Let’s roll bitches!!!

Please note I’m a Single full Dad status over here but alas I convince Grandma/Grandpa to take the kids for three days so I blast off for this beauty. Portland here we come. It’s now 5pm cali time and in my world of kids it’s getting hella late. I have a very short window (No pun intended) between school and work and if I can get this table It has to THIS weekend. My rendezvous with Jim in Portland is TOMORROW and ya My next break is like November soooooo Packed up, kids strapped in car seats (4&7) and I’m on the road!

Here we go I’m PUMPED! Getting to grandmas in my F350 my rear window won’t roll up. Kids roll the window up!!! “Can’t dad”. Wtf. It’s now well after 5pm, window is still stuck down. No way looks like I have to cancel.... I can’t even park My Car like this anywhere. Oh no what do I tell JIM??? My Window broke so I can’t get the Best table I have ever seen for $80. Hey JIM sorry cant make it??? Heck no!!!! I have to make This work. No exceptions. Quick.... Call Uhaul, lady says schools open this week so “sorry no trucks.” Well
Then I’ll Rent one at Home Depot? Closest one is opposite direction Miles and mucho denero. Not to mention my truck will be in some depot parking lot with the window Stuck down. Scratch that. New plan, harbor frieght screwdriver set. You tube??? Worst case plastic and duct tape. I’m going to get this table today. Even with the window down!

Couple hectic prayers later (they work people) I find a shop right next to harbor freight says “auto glass.”

The guys are out back and don’t really love my sob story so flash some cash, offer beers (I don’t drink) and booooom. We’re getting this window fixed. Mind you it’s after the shop Is closed!!!!

Hour later, BOOM back on the road.....

Did a road trip a couple years back. Made the drive from California thru Portland. It was a very scenic drive!

But I guess you're going to zip along and scenery be damned! Helluva deal you scored.

Looking forward to reading more updates.

Drive safe!

Well the #2 podcast on Spotify is called “call her daddy”. Never heard of it so I Started at episode 79 (for what reason I don’t know). It’s two smoking hot twenty somethings talking about sex comedy and dating life. I hated it at first but now It’s growing on me fast. I’m a single dating dad and there is just Something raw about these two women I relate to and enjoy. Next up, Reggae, Classic Rock, and Techno for the late night!!!

What's the chance of you leaving Jim's without buying a whole bunch of chips or other accessories, I wonder? ;)

Zero. I went to the bank of course DUH but I don’t want to discus his personal life without his permission, but I will say most of his sets were in “storage” for a pretty cool personal reason. I would expect everyone here to be seeing ALOT LOT LOT more of him in the future. I’ll leave it at that... annd no I don’t mean flooding chips, just more of his energy. (Lots more on that later in the conclusion) STAY TUNED!!!

Back on the road I see this other post and it’s like lotto machine and tables for $20 so I reply SOLD and Jim texts “hope you got a big trailer”

Mind you I already mentioned to him I have a F350 long bed. In my mind plenty of room but what the heck. I call Uhaul. They have one trailer in stock. Sweet I’ll take it. Reduced speed limit but hey only adds an hour and after all Jim says hope you have a trailer, you better have a trailer.

Oh ya he gives me the “lots for sale” kinda vibes via text. Ok so Im thinking thank god I got the trailer reserved.... Then he send me this pic...

No. He ALSO has a blackjack table for sale.... Lord have mercy!

Hey, wait a minute! What happened to the rest of this story???
I have not forgotten..... TBC. It’s like the waiting for the last season of GOT. Lol

Room/thread/end result is under massive daily construction.... well as much as a single full time Dad can do. I expect weeklies here by NYE and pics prior!


Stay tuned!!!!!
