I’m still alive August 27, 2017

20170812_16462520170812_164552Not much time to post, I’ve been home for the first time in over a month and over the weekend spent less than 24 hours total at home because when you’ve been gone that long there’s always a crap load of stuff that needs doing. Here’s a picture I got somewhere down around Virginia. If I remember correctly we were at a brake check parking lot at the top of 5 miles of 6% grade hauling 45,000 pounds. It was pouring rain hard enough to force us to pullover at one point by the time we got the bottom of the mountain. It was actually the day that whole antifa vs skin heads thing happened. As we rolled through I noticed police and fire trucks posted at every on ramp and off ramp. I’m guessing to prevent blocking the freeway.

Need to head off to church in a minute. We’re supposed to head back to Allentown, PA to pick up our tractor later today. We live in the OKC area and no that’s not normal to be parked so far away when you have home time. It’s about 1500 miles from here. If I’ve got time before I hit the road I’ll try to post about it later. We have to be back by Tuesday morning for a delivery and won’t be home again until October 3rd. If the wheels aren’t turning, you aren’t earning.

Until then, enjoy this nice sunset from Mississippi.

Small world. We were able to help a friend of mine, an immigrant from the Ukraine, get his CDL. He’s a young guy, late 20’s, and a hard worker. He is trying to live the American dream. We called to see if he needed some beets from our garden (borscht) and he tells us he is in California, driving a nice blue truck for Werner. A rookie.

Lots of road time but when he gets X number of hours observing and being observed he’ll get to bring his new wife and two dogs as he starts his career. (Naturally his name is Yheor, pronounced Igor.)
