I drive for a living, deliver R.V.'s on the west coast. Business has been awful slow lately so I parked my truck at home and did a whole bunch of shooting, some sage brush pulling, tilled up a couple garden spots ( I let the locals use them if they want while I'm gone ). Generally just kicked back! One problem with it is I don't have internet at home, I use the TA truck stops for now. Less than two years to retirement and will have it at home again. No wireless where I live either, a bit off the beatin path and small, 38 people!
Got a call from a lady friend that want's me to go over the road with her until I retire and will probally do it. I find it unfortunate that at this point in my life the only thing I know how to make money at is driving! Damn I wish I'd been a ditch digger!
Anyway, I always will get here whenever I can. This is a super site with really super people.
