    For those of you who might remember the long winded information laden comments of mine, they might be back!
    TTR has changed the site just a tad, lol, and when I figure it out I'll post more of my silliness and road experiences for you all to enjoy or troll!

    I've been gone from TTR for a few years due to divorce and still doing the cancer fight.
    After working on that little vertigo problem after the brain surgery I'm back to driving a car, looking HARD at another motorcycle. A truck? maybe!!! And yes if you remember, I had mentioned a paraglider.

    I did and Yes, it worked as I no longer use that #### cane!
    It's a bad memory hanging on the coat rack by the door as a reminder that nothing comes easy nor free and life can be a ROYAL PITA!

    I am hoping after an old driver friend of mine keeps stopping by and leting me do my backing practice and other truck related jobs I need to get back so that I can get back on the road and aggravate you all for another 32 years on a hopefully dedicated NYC run! Yes, I DO DRIVE NYC! BTW: I managed for the first time in a truck after over 5 years I did a good 100 yard straight backup with a full 360* serpentine at the end! Who says you need to retrain? Yeah, insurance companies and idiot HRers from a college!

    I might be bringing a 2 new hobby's with me and sharing them with you!

    Are you drivers getting tired of the truck stops? The TV room? OR sitting in the cab looking at this monitor screen, the TV or out the windshield waiting on that load, watching the so called Ladies of the Dark walking the lot?

    Here is a hint you humans with a CDL can do while vegetating sitting waiting for a load or for those lumpers to unload you.

    Go fly a KITE!

    Go to You Tube and look up kite flying. The different types like, deltas, foils, and my favorite the Revolution! The the power foils that can be used for land boarding, waterboarding or just used as resistance weight training!

    YES! Remember that cancer fight I did? I lost those 35 pounds somewhere off a 155 pound body? A power kite is a good workout without the weight room and that odor! I found those muscles that radiation stole from me and they are coming back. Slowly, but heading back where they belong!
    It's more fun than a weight room also and can be done anywhere there is wind and room! This is NOT your childhoods type of kiting!

    So many different types that competitions are based around them!

    I probably won't be giving any more of my 32 years of OTR experience as that's all in here with over a few thousand comments so I'm going to help you all out of boredom and some of that blubbery stuff building up around the seating area!

    I know as hard as I try to get me back in working order I might never drive another rig again as no one will hire a medical problem like the one I managed to drag home with me unless they are desperate for a NYC driver that misses that run!

    Not to mention the old 1982 Honey RV that was flooded last month in my back yard! I now have a complete rebuild from the 454 that was underwater for 24 hours to all the woodwork made out of particleboard inside the rig which all must come out as it's now intimating a sponge!

    All you new drivers go back and read some of my tips for a better suitcase packing to how a bag of sand instead of kitty litter is better in the snow!

    To all of you;

    Blue Sky's and Safe Journeys

    That kite flying is something else!
    I saw one in China that looks like a guy riding a bicycle through the sky. The legs were moving and rotationg the bicycle pedals. Quite a site to see.
    Hope you continue to share your adventures with us.
