    More than likely if you pushed on of those old Charcoal gray and pink COEs. Most of were team drivers back then. I was lucky enough to push a KW100. ####, that seems like a million years ago.

    LOL, Well, the old KW COEs were a bit more modern than that.

    Then indeed we did cross paths on the old highways, or could have actually met at one time. I was across Canada cowboy. Our dispatchers, if we ever used them, were in Vancouver and Toronto. There was a scale man in Regina who went by the name of Swede; He was a scotch drinker and was rarely sober; big gut and had vision problems when looking at his scales. We could be pulling 5 - 8 thousand lbs over and he would just wave us through. Do you have any idea what happened to him? This was about 1964; I think.

    I don't remember him. Made many stops at Moosomin. I think the old gals name was Blanche or Marie. Great food at that place. TCHE made a lot of stops there.

    I stopped there quite often. I can't remember the name of the place but from what I have been told, it is still in operation but rebuilt a few times. It was on the right hand side traveling east from what I can recall.
