    Far, far away in the deep dark North - is an area known to the locals as "Powder Ridge". Have you ever pondered where the worlds confiscated Cocaine goes when the Police & US Attorneys Office seizes the Cartels Loads?! Powder Ridge of course! This HUGE Powder Mine would make Tony Montana jealous. The secret ridge has been protected for years, but recently has come under the control of some evil-doers. Fitting their Hydraulic Electric Excavator with a filtration system, three of the these criminals start to break down the large walls of the uncut mountain side. There was only 1 PROBLEM.

    It has always been known that there is no honour among thieves - especially when a filtration system fails, and the excavator pilot goes crazy! Don't stand so close to the mountain - you may get HOFFA'd.

    Should have loaded up the back of your drug truck and made another run for the boarder:). But like you said, only so many hands.
