While watching this fascinating carry/tote discussion go on, I'm reminded of my astonishment in the early '70s when, while on the No. Cheyenne Reservation in SE Montana for four years, I consistently heard the phrase "Hop on!" when inviting people into your car -- as if inviting them to hop on to a wagon, buckboard, etc. Is this phrase fossilized anywhere else in the country?
