And you do all your own lumping? Heckuva workout there even with a good pallet jack and roller.

No, never - I might break a nail...

At 5.8, I'm short enough that I can do squats, toe touches, push ups, and tricep dips while in the truck.
I don't, but I could...

Well I've never seen anything like that on "Ice Road Truckers" - did "reality" TV fail us all again?  ::)

Do you remember that show where they went out and repoed big trucks? What a joke! THAT show was a down right lie - so many tracking devices on these things nowadays. Even a black box:
Speed, sway, braking power, length and distance of braking, etc.

I use to have warmers and water heaters but I didn't like having all of that stuff in my truck taking up space.
I like to be a minimalistic as possible so if I really need something to be warm, I'll place it in front of my bunk heater for about twenty minutes.

I do recall that one, it was almost as stagey as the Airplane Repo show, which I became quite the fan of.

Love the snakey repo guy:

Gimme some hash, fried up to where it's a little crispy on top, then flip some eggs over it, either over easy or poached.

I liked potted meat or deviled ham. On saltines, just to ensure I get enough salt.  Not all the time but sometimes. Reminds me of the outdoors. SPAM is also nice sometimes, fried up on a sandwich or with eggs. I haven't tried the new "fancy" versions of SPAM though.  Thanks for hauling the rendered meat products. It is truckers who keep Americans stocked up!

Be a shame if you happened to be driving in front of my house on your way there and hit that massive pot-hole causing a box or two to "fall off the truck..."

You'd be surprised at how many drivers try to get away with stuff like this!

I remember in my long-ago college days a fellow student getting me addicted to Armour BBQ sausages, along with Ritz crackers.  Fortunately, I was able to detox from that habit. Damn pushers! ;)
