Popular Post farmer52 Posted June 16, 2013 Popular Post Share Posted June 16, 2013 Had a couple "puckers" and an "aw shit" on the way back to the farm on Sunday morning...Pucker #1Cruising south on I81 just north of Harrisburg. Speed limit in the area is 65mph and I was going about 60mph. State Police sitting in the median. I drove by and looked in my mirror...damn if he didn't pull out and follow me for couple miles then blew by me. Whew!Pucker #2As I passed through the toll booth at Breezewood I was flagged over by the DOT Inspector. I parked as far away from the booth as possible. What seemed like an eternity, he finally walked up next to me giving the trailer and truck a close look. He asked "what is this exemption?". I explained the MH is a show truck and I just came from a truck show in Macungie. He gave the truck another once over and I could read his mind "show truck...where is all the polished chrome?" While he was looking I told him the truck was a private vehicle and not for hire. It is a hobby and I take it to shows. Finally he asked "Do you get trophys or prize money at these shows?" I was actually impressed he knew the meaning of the exemption. I told him "no sir, it is for fun". Another "are you f'in' crazy" look and then he said "have a good day" and turned and walked away. Whew...2 puckers in one day...I just hope my shorts aren't stained. My "aw shit" came in Breezewood. I was sitting at a signal light waiting for what seemed like an eternity for it to change to green. I spied a good Diesel fuel price and decided to make a right turn and get fuel. Well I thought I had enough room to make the turn. As I was turning, I "kissed" the curb with my right rear trailer tire. Oh well, it could have been worse, just my feelings were hurt along with a scuffed side wall.Otherwise an uneventful return trip from a great weekend at Macungie. 5 Quote Ken HOF City, PRR Country, and Charter member of the "Mack Pack" Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
