I'm paid by the load so I'm doing 60 in a 55 and 70 on the big road.  I'm pretty easy going but if you see a truck coming up on you in the left lane stay in the right unless your doing the speed limit.  

Don't worry I'm a conservative, always in the right!

The ones that really get you mad are the ones that yank out in front of you when there is no one behind you so what is so hard to let you pass at the speed limit and just pull out after you have gone by?

Damn and I thought it was the democrats that were always right just ask them they will tell you that especially months after the presidential election they are still crying about losing.

Ok Al, Kevin, and UPS Man. Nick let me borrow a couple pictures. One of his grandpa's Hendrickson and the other of his uncle's R model. He was still looking for pictures of his Dad's with the bunk. He said they have been misplaced.

I certainly remember those trucks passed them numerous times a big guy with a big beard was always behind the wheel. He was never in a hurry always kept a slow steady pace you can always tell an old school guy who owned the truck he drove by the way they treated it. These guys who own their trucks nowdays beat on it like it was somebody elses a totally different mind set from the old school guys kind of sad really.
