  1. Mark, hey I forgot you were close to Pittsburg Kansas, I will let you know when I am home again. Did you make it over to the Petro truck stop in Joplin on 44 to see the big truck show and all of the custom Riggs?
  2. Howdy All! I am so sorry I have been busy and gone for a long time from the forum. So every month we go over to Pahrump for dog training. I drive the 780 over and we sleep in the cab at either Petrack Park or Simpkins park with the dogs. We train Friday night and Saturday morning. Saturday we drive home. At our last training it was a beautiful day and as we were headed home I asked my wife if she would like to take the wheel and give it a try. She said yes and we pulled over just before the exit off of 160 to 95 south into Indian Springs. Pam got behind the wheel and drove the first 10 miles on two lane highway before it opened up to 4 lane Highway and all the way into Indian Springs about 20 miles south of the turn off. We pulled into a truck stop and ate at a Big Boy restaurant. She was scared when we were on the 2 lane portion and got hit by desert winds when we got out in the open part of the highway but she didn't chicken out. I was so proud of her! I took the keys back and drove into Vegas. I did not want her to have to deal with Vegas traffic on her first outing. Also if you live in this area or are making a run through here, the price of diesel is about 40 cents cheaper a gallon in the kingdom of Pahrump. It is worth the trip over there to get some diesel if you are close. Later, Vegas Teacher - Cory Ossana
  3. Hey my friend just sent me a picture of a gen 1 Volvo at a KOA in Pennsylvania. Looks to be singled short and I think it is pulling a fusion 423 but I could be wrong. If you are this person go say hello at the front desk to Sharon Bond. She is a great friend of mine, Vegas teacher, she is a work camper. Later, Cory Ossana Vegas Teacher.
  4. Hey have any of you guys seen the latest Purge Movie? A Western Star 5700 Semi was in that movie and had more than just one scene. How many of you knew a Semi Engine and grill were bullet proof LOL!!!! A farm family owns this truck and they use it in the movie for different things, I won't spoil the movie for anybody who wants to see it. Anyway Thought I would give it a mention. I am going back to Kansas, leaving on Sunday from Vegas Midnight, I love night driving, no traffic and it is much cooler. It is supposed to be 117 degrees tomorrow in Vegas.

  5. I know where Rockford is!!!
  6. Are you close to big rapids, my wife graduated from Ferris State.
  7. First day would be from Vegas to Salt Lake City. Second would be Salt Lake to Omaha. Third would be Omaha to Morley Michigan, it is about 75 miles north of Grand Rapids Michigan in the Southwest part of the state. We would stay with my wife's family for a while. The trip from Michigan down to Kansas takes about a day. My home town is Pittsburg Kansas, I grew up about 45 miles from where Jack has RVH life styles. I am about 150 from where the National HDT rally takes place. Going back to Vegas my first leg would be to Gallup New Mexico then into Vegas. That is how we drove with a normal trip, but I have not recalculated with semi. We have also done straight through trips rotating drivers and sleeping in the back of my 4 door tundra or with the seats down in my outback too. But I am not sure if the big truck will slow me down or how much it might.
  8. My first big trip across country will be this summer. I am going to be driving across the Midwest from Vegas to Michigan and South back to my home state of Kansas. Route will be 15 north to 80 east, will take 80 west back to Chicago where I will head south and the head toward 70, 70 to K.C. and 69 south to Pittsburg Kansas. Then 44 to Tulsa then drop south to Oklahoma city catching 40 all the way to Flagstaff then 95 back into Vegas. The whole way I will be running bobtail and staying at truck stops when we get tired. Would really like any and all advice anybody can give me. I am a little nervous. Later, Cory Ossana - Vegas Teacher P.S. Schools out for summer!!
  9. Absolutely! I am looking for a place to get some good "Mud Bugs" here in Vegas. How do they taste compared to shrimp?
  10. Excellent Advice my friend. I hope someday we meet and get to have a beer together!
  11. I did not think of that, I guess "Uncle Sam" gets his fair share too. Cory O
  12. Thanks I did not think of that! Appreciate the advice I will do that. Cory O
  13. You know when the "D.W." starts to saying things like "wouldn't it be nice if........." funny how things change LOL. Seems like what we like as guys changes. I have been married for almost 18 years now (July 26, at 2:30 p.m.) but I still remember the week I moved all of my stuff from my apartment I had here in Vegas into her 1800 square foot house with 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms. It was crazy, I took all of my stuff in the front door and I kept seeing it go out the back door before I even got it all organized. She had bought the house 3 years before I ever met her but wow, was it a rude awakening for me. The same stuff at my apartment looked great but now way was it showing up in her living space? ;-( Later, Cory O
  14. When you go to see Jack, over in Dennis Kansas you are 45 miles from Pittsburg Kansas, my home town. If you like fried Chicken you have to go to Chicken Annie's or Chicken Mary's. If you like to fish or hunt you have to go to John's Sport's Center ( I worked there as a kid) If you like good lunch meat you have to go to Pulluca's Grocery store in Frontenac Kansas. Frontenac is attached to Pittsburg. If you are a steak person go to Jim's Steak house. If you like great Italian Sausage and want to take some home, go to Ron's IGA, go to the meat department and ask for Charlie, he will get you the best Italian link sausage, it was my great grandfather's recipe that he uses, still today. My great uncle taught Charlie how to butcher. I am going back this summer to see Jack also. I am more that likely going to drop my truck off with him for the year to do "fill work" on. I live in Vegas and go back to S.E. Kansas to see my family in the summers when school is out here in Las Vegas and make a trip up to see my wife's family in Michigan. Later, Vegas Teacher
