    Interesting fun stuff. Most I've heard. Just getting back into it after doing local hauling of gasoline.
    always curious when a " desperado" was mentioned over the radio but could never figure
    any ideas??

    It probably all went by the wayside when all the trucks became governed below the speed limit - lets face it the CB was used to circumvent speeding tickets.
