  1. "The best looking A model Mack in the world"- Dave Coutu, AKA Maint1.
  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.
  3. 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.
  4. I will- she's coming back Friday, we're going to Winchester.
  5. Nice GMC! Way too cheap with that patina though, would you take $85,000 for it?
  6. Yep, that's when I stopped at Hoover Dam, back when you still drove over the dam itself.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. I got the new Show Time magazine today, and several BMT members had their trucks pictured in it. There's probably more, I didn't have time to give it a real close look, but here's some that I saw, Freightrain, High Binder, and Farmer52's trucks.
  10. A few more from Hawk's Nest, and the state capitol dome in Charleston.
  11. 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.
  12. This week I got to bring my lovely assistant with me. I made sure she had the proper safety equipment. We went to Salina, Kansas. We saw lots of animals. ...and nature- She got a big kick out of this in the ladies room somewhere in Illinois, so she went back to take a picture of the "donkey hay". I've seen similar items in lots of men's rooms, but I didn't know they had them in the lady's room too. And this- A Jim Beam truck in Kentucky. We went across Hawks Nest coming back. Stopped at the overlook. Putting a new wiper blade on. Oversize load in Suffolk, Va. We even saw a girl in a car. Having an assistant was the best part of the trip, she took almost all of the pictures.
  13. 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.
  14. Wow, unbelievable prices some of those trucks went for- I mean cheap! The GMC concrete truck sold pretty high though, I liked that too.
  15. ...and she's wearing effing Nikes!
  16. Could have, I unloaded pipes in New Castle and then went to Kittanning to get a load of graphite. Ran 422 all the way from New Castle to Ebensburg.
  17. Hmmm, don't know, I never even noticed that. I thought they were just regular H beams laying down flat.
  18. 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.
  19. I did not see much this week, just this girl in a car- And this redheaded woman cleaning out her side box in the parking lot. and this big praying mantis. Some units for sale in Appomattox. A car on a highway. And another girl in another car. A red Peterbilt dump truck. An unsecured load of steel leaving the mill. A lot of water in Berkley Springs, W.V. A load of unsecured steel. And another load of unsecured steel on the Pa. Turnpike.
  20. 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.
  21. Meanwhile, in the top secret barbecue research and development department at an undisclosed location near Winfall, Va. the test team is hard at work...
  22. 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.
