    Yes sir... that’s where orientation is for people that go to Trainco in Perrysburg, OH. At least from what I’ve been told...

    Serious flooding back home, Rooster. It's tragic everywhere.

    Back in the Bluegrass. We got roads submerged in water, (closed). Don't know when they will ever be open, but it is what it is. Just have to make the best of what you have. Keep pressing forward. Keep the smile going.

    In Moorefield, West Virginia for the night. Went down Onego, Pendleton County, West Virginia hill. 10% grade, 3 1/2 miles. Some of the curves were only 25 mph, and a lot of them, and the Jake brakes don't work at 10 mph. When you have a load at 44,000 pounds. That hill, in fact, will test your skills. On that note, don't send an inexperienced driver down that hill. It's a two lane road. If a driver gets up too much speed, and goes over the guard rail. It's a long drop to the bottom of that mountain. It would be a very ugly sight, I assure you. Now, going up the hill, the speed limit was 55 mph, and I was in 4th gear. Pulling that hill, if that tells you anything. With a 10 speed manual transmission. I have a Cummins ISX.

    Did a 1% grade in Indiana today...thought about downshift...but the truck said, "touch that shifter Rooster and I'll slap the feathers off of you."

    Who am I to argue?

    Heading back down to Mt Juliet...no groceries this time, so should be in and out.
