Midnight in the Diner: Tales from the Road

Well alright, too much of a pecking order at the other place and I only went there to post in my thread and contribute to Bart's Charity of the Month.
Here's to starting over!

WELCOME HOME!!

Thanks Brig!



I don't know how far I'll take it yet but it just seemed silly to keep posting at the other place when only one or two people seemed to be interested.
Getting smote when I contributed to Bart's Charity of the Month was the final straw - something about it just rubbed me the wrong way.
Bellgab will now receive that monthly contribution and I hope that whoever that asshole was is reading this and they give themselves a big ol' pat on the back.
I DO think that I may start another thread to watch and comment on YouTube videos like we used to do because I really enjoyed doing those.

A few pics for those unfamiliar with my goal for this thread:

Cave driving in KC:



Relaxing in Florida:



Squeezing through Pittsburgh:



...and a bit of mountain climbing:



  I drive a truck and I share my experiences here: others chime in with theirs and it turns out to be an interesting mix of persons and places.

When home, I enjoy building things



Or a relaxing fire



In winter, I'll take the snowmobile out

I also enjoy being a father - why, I'll never forget teaching them how to swim



Or animal husbandry



Or to learn from the wisdom of elders

I've never forgotten the importance of God



Or the benefit of a good meal



Or helping out with the neighbors kids

When driving, I like to take the scenic route



Find new ways to old places



And experiment with the tools on hand

The best advice I can give to new drivers is to be cautious



Because patience matters



And be mindful of your surroundings

I have not really kept up on the drama- I really don't know what happened with you.  It seems like anytime I look over there, more people have smote me.  I'm heading for negative karma- and I will consider that a positive at this point.

Every now and then, something there catches my eye and I post.  But generally, I'm happy reading here.  Whatever it was, good to see you around.

*What is it that you drive.  I can only see a red hood- and I can tell it is not a real truck- it does not have the squared nose of a classic Pete.  :P

**To be fair, I logged in and my karma is on an upswing.  Who knows why, anymore...

There really was no drama, and Bart has always been decent to me. I'm just not in to Heather or Dave and that's pretty much the only conversation going on over there. There were only two or three people that would interact with my thread and I knew that a lot of people who have been banned would add more to the conversation, so logic dictated that I should start it up over here.

The karma thing has always irritated me and I am glad that I will not have to see it anymore. Also, to smite someone for contributing to a charity is lowbrow, petty bullshit and I'll have nothing to do with it.

Hahaha - a long nose is for showing off and a short nose is for work! It's all fine and dandy in the midwest but those streets in Jersey ain't truck driver friendly and I'll take any advantage I can get!

I used to work on them.  We had some trucks (I know you have seen them) with visors that extend 1/2 way down the windshield.  Then they took the air ride out of the seat in order to sit on the floor and put an extension on the shifter.  I recall wondering how you see any car in traffic unless it is 200 feet in front of you- and I'm over 6'.

*Also, the cabs are narrow and not nearly as comfortable / spacious.  But they sure can look pretty when you dump $50,000 into chrome, lighting, modifications and custom paint...  ;)

Never have had any interaction with Bart- so I cannot really judge him either.  As for the karma thing- I believe that it is possible that it was a mistake.  Perhaps TW or another poster thought "smite" was just a shorted word, and wanted to demonstrate that she was "smitten" with you?  ;)  You know- there are two options-praise or love/infatuation?

I'm 5'8 and it's a guessing game everytime that I drive one. I'll take the short nose, please!
Yeah, you can make them pretty but that's a whole lot to worry about. I'm too simple to fit the style.
