    Stopping TOO Fast /V. Teach Lesson #37.g(ee)

    Dave, All I can add to that is this, AMEN BROTHER BEN. Having driven a Highway Striper for well over 30 years, I can't begin to count the stupid things I have seen on the roads. That said, while I have NO desire to see someone else get hurt, I will act in a manner that protects me and mine first. FLAME ON if you like. Joe

    I also just had cataract surgery. Right eye was done long ago and they did it for distance, so when they did the left eye last month I told them to do it for distance also. I do not need glasses to drive, etc now, but I am ordering glasses with progressive lenses so that I don't have to carry readers with me and will continue to wear glasses. That will help me remember that most of the things I get involved in REQUIRE eye protection. Joe

    A tale of Chicken Trucks, NARROW roads and CB antennas.

    First you have to get them off their fat butts and out of the office away from the donuts.

    Hey Guys, Good to see that some of the group is on the move. LOL Hope Sandie is over her cold by now though. That said, sure don't hear much from the group anymore. Have been thinking about everyone a bit lately and wondering what everyone is up to. Also wondered if anyone has heard anything of Denise? Seems she just dropped off, and out, of everything a while back. Current plans have me in the Yuma area sometime this winter. Lots of short trip going on for us but mostly up here in the PNW. Joe

    Funny, but somehow I thought you might. I have a couple other pic's from that day and you are in almost the exact same pose.🤭 Joe

    Cancer Free is a GREAT thing. Really glad to hear that about any and all the members here. We have been sticking pretty close to home this year. Just to many projects in the works to get away much. We did manage a visit to Ft Flagler recently though. Joined some friends for a BBQ there. As I was eating I realized I had a picture of someone taken from almost that exact same spot 4 years ago.😃 Current plans have me visiting the Yuma area this winter, most likely in the December timeframe. Then a bit of time on the Oregon Coast for some Storm Watching, followed by more projects here at the Homestead. Joe

    Hey Dave, That is AWESOME news. Travel Safe and keep in touch. Now I have to head out for work, maybe one of these days I'll get old enough to retire.😄 Joe

    Hey Dave, Having had a late 70's long nose Pete with a Big Cam 400 backed up with a 13 speed, I have been following your threads with interest. I do know how much fun your having and how much you will enjoy that rig once you have it the way you want it. Travel safe and I'm sure our paths will cross again one day. Perhaps in August if you are at the Party Mark is throwing. Joe

    Hey Dave, Yes, but it was way back at a NWB event when you were still driving your 1 ton. Yes I did mean Mark and my post was meant to be "Tongue in Cheek". That said, IF he were to buy your truck, he and Terry could step up to a Horse Trailer with Living Quarters and have a lot of fun safely. Just sayin. If I still had a 5th wheel, I would most likely have Semi Sane sitting in my shop right now. Joe

    Dave, I'm sure you could take it over with you when you next visit "Hoss" and convince him that they would be much better off towing their Horse trailer with it than they are using his 3/4 ton he now uses. Just a thought. Joe
  14. Oh the trouble I could get into in that shop. But boy would I have FUN. Joe
