Out for a ride


Recommended Posts

I was delivering a load of wood in a 30 yard dumpster in my friends Peterbuilt. I had no idea the grade of road or the condition but I had the tag down and turned up the hill. The water running across the road had frozen and the one lane road got real steep real fast. I tried lifting the tag but lost my momentum and stopped. While I was figuring out my next move the truck started sliding back down the hill! I found a patch of dirt I guess and it stopped while I engaged the air locker. That gave me enough hold to make the crest of the hill. I'm new to driving and yes it was a learning experience. Fortunately No dents, dings or bruises.

My crusty yet trusty 5 year old Canon Powershot A1100IS

Thanks Leslie! Then my Canon Powershot SX140IS should do the job. I thought it might be a fancy dancy video cam.

Now that you are riding in luxury, when is the B going up for sale? <_<

They would cut the balls off your bulldog if they caught you driving with a camcorder in your hand down here in Philly.Hell they fine you a $100 if you even have a cell phone in your hand.I saw one jackass get pulled over for talking on the phone and when the officer walk up to the car she just kept right on talking.

Nice! thanks for posting,how you liking that 12 speed? and yes,as others have already said, Jake+Winter+Bob-tail= disaster!....................................Mark

I love the 12 speed! (only a 10 right now!)...I think it needs a little more air pressure on the compound as the compound shift seems sluggish, I can shift all but 4D-5L like butter most times! I read about shifting 4D-5D then compunding back to 5L...today is the first day I didnt drive it!

It's a lot more than that! We had a DOT meeting a few months ago and if I remember correctly, first offense in a CMV is $2600 and second offense is $26,000. I might be wrong though. It is also a "primary stop" meaning truck enforcement can stop you just for having a phone out. They always hang out in front of Anderson's yard on Allegheny and nail people all day.
