    Big Mack Trucks at the Tri-State ATHS Show

    ...but wait, there's more- ...and, the BMT group photo. I didn't get everyone together at once, just individual photos. Ken Claar, AKA Farmer52 was there also, but I didn't get a picture with him, so I got a blonde in a green bikini as a substitute.
  2. As Randyp would say- excellent kodiakatronomy! Looks like Ross probably doesn't worry about whether he has enough cash to pay for his purchases when he goes to Family Dollar.

    Wow, we were just talking this evening and I was telling her that people used to put Jolly Ranchers in some kind of drink, but I couldn't remember what.

    New Fad for Cars?

    Nice GMC! Way too cheap with that patina though, would you take $85,000 for it?

    Yep, that's when I stopped at Hoover Dam, back when you still drove over the dam itself.

    Didn't I hear that the national show was going to be in Va. year after next?..seems to me I heard it somewhere, but I could have dreamed it.

    I got a 30 min. break in at Hawk's Nest, plenty of time to look around and walk that little loop trail.I have stopped there before, but it was new to Zina. One of our drivers said I should show her the full truck driver experience, taking a shower at a truck stop. But I told her to start with she would not have to do that, we would get a motel room at least every other night. So I figured taking her across rt. 60 from Charleston would also be a true trucking experience, like back before the turnpike and I-64 was finished and you didn't have much of a choice. And the Hawk's Nest Tunnel was very interesting, I hadn't bothered to google it before, but she did. The intake for the tunnel is all the way to the far right side of the dam. I used to take the time to stop and look at a lot of things, but the idiotic hours of service and electronic logs today pretty much put a stop to it. Some places I have taken the time to look at include Hoover Dam, the aquarium in Boston, the Neil Armstrong Air and Space Museum in Wapakoneta, Ohio, Mt. Rushmore, the New River Bridge in WV, and i'm sure there's more. Now I can drive by and look at things, but there's hardly ever time to stop anywhere.

    I've never owned a pair of Nikes, I usually wear the shoes from Walmart that are about 12- $14 around here in the summer.

    This is proper safety equipment, as demonstrated by a beautiful redhead. The steel toe boots, reflective safety vest, and safety glasses are not visible in the picture.

    GAB JOINER VINTAGE TRUCK AUCTION

    Wow, unbelievable prices some of those trucks went for- I mean cheap! The GMC concrete truck sold pretty high though, I liked that too.

    Hmmm, don't know, I never even noticed that. I thought they were just regular H beams laying down flat.

    Here's a girl in a car taken several years ago, but it looks worthy of a re-run. Another big praying mantis, and a blonde. The sky- A girl in a car. An ATM. Here's a couple of wimmens on rt. 29 going to the Lock'N Music Festival. And I even saw some big Mack trucks.

    Pictures of the Week

    I saw some things this week- like the Winfall Department of Public Works employee working on the Winfall sign...or maybe she was just holding it up. I saw a girl washing a tank in Winfall. Some Kubota equipment. I saw this lumber in this Conestoga. Peach trees in South Carolina. Turkeys in the field just up the road from here. Lots of young ones. It used to be pretty rare to see wild turkeys, but not any more, you can hardly walk outside without kicking one. I saw a girl in a car. A sign on 81 that had blown down. I accumulated a hitchhiker... a happy looking little fellow.

    It's not even safe fo eat Cheerios

    I don't usually even have breakfast on Sunday's when I have to leave, but this morning there was 4 eggs left in the carton, so I fried them all. They were very delicious with the 4 pieces of Jimmy Dean sage sausage I had with them.

    Pictures of the Week

    I saw all these cars traveling north on I-79 in West Virginia last week. And this Ford pickup was at Sadler's Truckstop in Emporia, Va. ...And this bolt was in this tire- I was in Pittsburgh, and I called the Michelin tire service, that we have a national account with. They sent a truck all the way from Butler, Pa. to fix it. Three hours. Looks like there would be a Michelin tire shop in Pittsburgh...you'd think anyway. Nice looking tire he put on though, I wish I had 8 of those for winter. They're B.F.Goodrich tires. I saw a girl in a car looking at a phone too. Oh, I even saw some big Mack trucks. This is a '79 DM. The driver said they wash it and wax it every night, and all their equipment looks like new.
