    Off subject, warn those folks to watch out or they won't have to worry about a driver’s license or paying anyone anything. Just a little west of there between Shiprock and Newcomb in the early morning hours, I've all most run over a hay baler and a Navajo gentleman a couple times, they had a to much to drink. I believe that route was 666, should have been a warning to watch out. However the Navajo police came out both times and got them out of there and hay baler off the road, good folks.
    Glad those you were talking about got caught.
