    So after work today I head back up to Bremerton to pick up the pair of XX for qtrain23 I hope you are satisfied with them...

    I get off work, stopped at the bank and fueled up the car. My wife doesn't know this is going down, so i am keeping all this under the radar. I head home and wait for her to head to work. As soon as the coast is clear I head out.

    It was about 70 degrees and wasn't raining, which is almost a miracle. I fire up The Benz opened the sunroof, cranked some tunes and set out... To sit on the I-5 parking lot. JBLM was having its usual traffic nightmare. Too many cars let out at one time on a freeway designed by a toddler on meth. It turns the freeway into a gigantic douche waffle. One hour and ten miles later I have passed that clusterf**k. The rest of the drive was uneventful, aside of the speed trap extravaganza on highway 16. There were a lot of unfortunate speeders getting citations.

    The whole trip up I am stressing out, wondering if I was correct when I said they were XX. I start second guessing myself, and am thinking I am either getting qtrain a pair of XX, or I'm buying myself an overpriced ragged out pair of Juliets. By the time I am in Bremerton I'm about to stroke out because I have been second guessing myself for the last 60 miles and two hours. The suspense is f**king killing me. As expected, Tweaker McGee is late, which is adding to the damned suspense.

    I meet the ex-methhead, current pothead (who wanted to smoke me out, kind offer, but I'll pass) and we make the deal, which probably looks like a dope deal at a gas station. We stand and chat, and he asks a lot about glasses. He is astonished that there is a forum for sunglasses, and that there are people like us who collect and restore Oakleys.

    Now for some pictures...

    Yeah, the flex couplers are a little worn, but the X-Man should be able to work some magic on them.

    I picked them up for someone else. Not my business to post what he paid.

    Great group of people willing to help out another forum member. I get the same reaction when I tell people about what they have after I paid them and have them in my hands. They can't believe people collect them.
