On a Harley Sportster Forum I am a member of, there was this guy.
A wise man, always willing to offer advice and help, always telling a good joke and laughing at your good joke.
A man I never met, never talked to, just a cyber-friend.
And he is now gone.
And it hurts like if I had known the man all my life.
Rest In Peace my friend.

I miss the "nothing to care about" part of childhood.
But I also remember that I was never big, tall or old enough to do anything I really wanted to do.

I left home last Tuesday to go to deliver in Cleveland.
I went from there to Sturgis, MI to pick up a load of paper.
I stopped for the week-end at a truckstop in Golden BC.
Went from Golden to Kamloops yesterday and made my delivery.
Today, went from Kamloops to Toledo, OR and I'm done for the nite.
Tomorrow, I pick-up in Portland and then head home, 2584 miles away.
That will be a 6472 miles trip.
Then I take a week off.

Roadway had a major change of operations that went in to effect yesterday...
80% of our runs will be "meet and turn" which is much like UPS package's way of making sure drivers are in their own bed at the end of the day...
So last night I ran to claysville Pennsylvania - met a Carlsile driver - swapped trucks and headed back home.
I live very close to the terminal and turning back every day suits me fine.
Well I sent on more apps yesterday and got no e-mails nor phone calls. I guess one of these days i'll hit one that is looking for someone like me.
