  1. Past time to leave Montana

  2. Rough Lives PBS artcle

    Kirk and wtmtnhiker, Agreed score me in your column. Maybe she should write about some "oldsters" youth jobs and responsibilities.
  3. Staying in a parking lot

    Chief, Happy trails and best wishes too you and your wife! That yellow Carhart is still keeping me dry. If you get near the " Q" this year, post up my man!
  4. California 3 or more Axles

    Cory, The food was good even then. But that big lot was mostly gravel and the truck wash was`nt there. And very few cars stopped. Petro was THE truck stop along with TSA and Union76 Can`t tell you about the back of their shirts as we were watching the front side.

    Cory I am LOL with a tear in my eye. After 36 yrs on the big road I remember when the Outpost used to feed on-duty drivers a free Christmas meal, etc. Being based out of Los Angeles we would sometimes have to wait out the CHP closure of I-15 for snow LOL, to get into L.A. That is maybe a 1-2in. covering. This after coming from the East Coast in Dec. And if you are not careful you`re gonna` be a real Driver. Any body can drive a truck but not all are "Drivers". Thanks to this forum for a renewal of memories
  6. National Rally

    Phil That is some real damn fine music Since you let the cat out, I would like to see your new trailer with any pics you care to share. And to all the whiners, I believe it is Steve and Gail`s prerogative to share their new unit when and how they choose. Having not seen the Dixon`s new unit I know it will be outstanding as after meeting them I can attest to them also being outstanding people
  7. Hdt financing

    So much for the "dumb old welder jokes" Good on ya` Glenn As a guy that has some d@%n good friends that know how to light a torch they let me think I know about welding.
  8. Truck Done ;-) !!!!

    Careful Cory, or it won`t be long `till you`re singing "Six Days on the Road" ! Have a good ride.
  9. Still in Repair Mode or TLC

    Hey Sculptor, Being an old dog, kinda like Dolly Trolley, I speaks form the school of hard knocks. So, the BEST penetrating oil IMHO is a mixture of Acetone and synthetic trans fluid. It has been along time since I mixed some up but I recall 1part acetone to 2 parts trans fluid. Check u tube for a comparison of all the usual brands . Theory seems to be the size of the molocules in the synth. is smaller and will creep in further than the commercial products. I squirted it from and old fashioned squeeze type gun and it really works. Ya` I put it on and let it set for a few days and hit it again
  10. Las Vegas Tragedy

    Dick, am VERY proud to say thank you for your service . But saying it in this message means more to me than other peoples thoughts and opinions. And maybe save a little space for others to say thanks. I am fortunate to live in a community, Draper Utah, where we have a very pro-active Dept and some great officers. We are proud and supportive of our guys and ladies in Blue. P.S. following your brake refit. Great job. Used to have a place in Golden Shores (Topock) many a moon ago.

    Tumbleweed Where ya`at? Been a while since your last reply! Hope all is well

    Good job Steve (as usual) Now darn it show us that new trailer!
  14. Pilot & Flying J


    Rick, I was one of those guy`s with a little girly truck in 2011. Stayed in a motel without wife as she told me to go smell some diesel smoke ..You were one of a LOT of people who made me feel very welcome.Jack M., Mark Bruss, Bob Winsor Henry, And especaily Steve and Gail could not have been more friendly. Ya` I have left out a lot of nice people, including the The Springfield family. But I have gone thru life without having to have my hand held. Steve I think you might have shorted yourself on the amount of hours you put in, Have a great rally and thanks for some life memories.
