Default EPIC GREASE COLLECTION/HAUL Culture award

So, I spent this last weekend hauling back a load of my latest EPIC GREASE COLLECTION...

I attached a pic... those are 275 gallon totes * 4... which (according to my abacus) is 1100 gallons of grease.

So... I figured... why not make this a culture award challenge.

This culture award challenge runs from NOW until the END OF JULY. (So any previous grease collections you had prior to NOW don't count).

$50 awarded to the pic that documents the largest grease FIND/COLLECTION/HAUL. You can't just FIND IT, you have to actually photograph YOU HAULING IT back.

(Note: grease you haul for your vacations don't count... this is for grease collection... (This means YOU muns53, IMAGREASER and SkySki... )

As always... honesty rules apply, otherwise it's no fun... post up your pics of the MOST amount of grease you have stumbled across and hauled back to your man-cave... (and I won't go down the path of questioning every single photo... but if I see a scanned in picture of an old Polaroid with everyone wearing 70's clothes I reserve the right to be more than skeptical).


And no, my attached pic doesn't count... (since I hauled it back yesterday, anyway... ).

Yeah, seriously? I'm lucky to get 20 gallons every 2 weeks.

Well, it ain't gonna be 1100 gals - but I haven't collected any oil at home for 2 months!!! I expect a good haul, but only 275gals at a time... I guess I could put a 2nd tote on my dually - but my 'lil grease trailer only holds one tote.

Jay, I'm guessing that overloaded trailer was a handful behind the X!!!! What are you pumping with??
