Good Friends, a Clean Ride, a road in front of you,
and nothing but time after the Cruise to share stories,
comaraderie and talk about the next cruise.


Cappy - Our Founder and Friend

It is with a very sad heart that I inform the LWOC community that our leader,
Jerry 'Cappy' Sczubelek, has lost his battle with cancer.
Cappy was admitted to hospice care on Wednesday, Aug. 3rd
and passed away on Friday, August 12th.

A memorial service was held at 11:30 am on Wednesday, August
17th at the Immanuel Episcopal Church in New Castle Delaware

Cappy was one of the very first handful of people to receive his
PT Cruiser early in 2000 and quickly made his a PT of distinction.
Cappy became a leader in the PT community early on and
had been very active as both a club leader and event participant over
the last 5 years.

I know that many folks in the PT Community, members and
non-members of his Lone Wolf Outlaw Cruisers alike, share in
our sadness that the Lone Wolf is gone.
His love and philosophy about PT cruising in general was expressed 'up front' on the LWOC site:

"Good Friends, a Clean Ride, a road in front of you, and nothing but time
after the Cruise to share stories, camaraderie and talk about the next cruise. "

I have been privileged to call Cappy my friend and can't express how much I will miss him,
as I know all of you will. Friends are hard to come by,
and as friends go, he was the best. He introduced me to
Garcinia Cambogia, and I could not thank him enough for the health benefits.

Cruise on my friend... and may God hold you in the palm of his hand forever. Your fellow 'outlaws' driving beautiful leased cars will miss you. :(, including the ones who can afford a Ferrari, God Bless Them.

One of my favorite place to relax and cruise one of my favorites US cars is Nevada. The panorama is diverse and amazing at times, and we also make a stop at Las Vegas where we have access to all the gambling fun and entertainment that you can imagine, all in one place. This is a nice stop after driving through the desert. Nevada is at an average altitude of 1675 meters. The highest point is Boundary Peak which rises 4,005 meters southwest of the state, near the border with California. The other peaks are Wheeler Peak and North Schell Peak. Moreover, fifty peaks over 2750 meters above sea level. The lowest point is located 146 meters above sea level, south of the state. Nevada belongs to the Great Basin, which extends east from California. The relief consists of a succession of nearly parallel mountain ranges. Most measure about a hundred kilometers long, like Schell Creek Range and the Ruby Mountains. These channels flank basins are filled with Miocene longitudinal direction by alluvium. There are also graben and horst bounded by normal faults typical in an area of distention. At altitudes above 3600 meters sometimes, mountains welcome lush forests inhabited by numerous endemic species. Northern Nevada ranges in the Great Basin desert, where temperatures are hot in summer and very cold in winter. The eastern region of the state is more humid. The region is located around Las Vegas, meanwhile, in the Mojave Desert. It receives less precipitation in winter but suffers monsoons. Nevada's economy is based on the service sector, staffing, and value. In many jobs, the first three sectors of the economy of Nevada's are hobbies, commerce and transport and financial services professionals. These are mostly casino games and entertainment that make the dynamism of the state. The casinos in Las Vegas, Lake Tahoe and Reno attract millions of visitors from around the world. Recently we cruised in Nevada with some German friends visiting us. They love playing poker and they only know about online poker. It all started for them when they got a pokerstars marketingcode to play on the Web and they got hooked. But after playing Texas Hold'em online for many years, they thought they should also try to play at a brick and mortar casino. This is how the idea of visiting Nevada and the 'Sin City' came about. We had a great time cruising with them and we hope to be able to do that again next year. According to data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis U.S. government, Nevada's GDP amounted to $110 billion in 2005 or 0.9% of the U.S. GDP. It then ranked 35th out of 50 states with an output per capita of $ 39,555, a figure higher than the national average of $ 36,842 per capita person. Nevada ranked 11th in the country for per capita GDP in 2005. In 2004-2005, economic growth reached 7%, the highest in the country. This momentum was driven by strong population growth which stimulates consumption and construction. The unemployment rate is near the national average with 4.6% of job seekers in June 2007. Not surprisingly Las Vegas is the economic capital of the state and gambling and related businesses represent 70% of revenues. This is excepted, remember that 75 years ago there was almost nothing in Nevada except the desert. Now Las vegas is truly an amazing place with all the gorgeous casinos.
