: I was entering a coaches meeting for softball to pick up some info for our upcoming season, when another coach that I knew was just walking out. "Aren't you going to stay?" I asked..."nope ...I'm heading out of Dodge...." what does that mean??? send me an e-mail!!

It's a variant of "Get the hell out of Dodge," which refers to Dodge City in the Old West. You can learn more about that saying by typing "dodge" (without the quotation marks) in the archive-search box on the main Discussion Forum page and looking at what comes up.
As for the e-mail, some of us prefer to respond here and keep our addresses private.
