    I'll try again. I think it's working now. :biggrin_25512: I apparently forgot a step during the upload, my apologies.

    There where a lot of tricks the old timers would use, I had a truck once with a tattle tale, the door kept on bouncing open and made a mess out if the disk, had fun with that one.....

    All the old Super Sweet Feed trucks had those things in them, I use to hear about how to cheat them.

    I would gladly trade my 2012 Maxipad(International with a Maxxforce motor) for just about any real truck. Company is planning on switching to auto, guess I need to fin a new company. Making fun of a new driver in an auto, "somebody go put it in D for dumb###"

    As a side note, I'm a new driver but went to a school that trained us on 10s, 13s, and if you asked nicely they'd let you use the Super 10. Good fun, but not all of us are steering wheel holders.

    "Northbound, y'all got a flatbed reefer done turned over in the comedian about the forty-seven yard stick. They was shuttin' ya down about the thirty-eight, so y'all may wanna try to find a way around"

    And when somebody calls me a danged liar for saying it, I let them know, "I ain't lyin', I saw that caboverconventional with my own two eyes, call me a liar."

    Thanks for the giggle! I miss the days when CB language was one all its own. I didn't grow up in a trucking family, but we did lots of cross-country traveling and always had a CB in the car. Learned a lot of the slang, and remembered most of it (still remember my mom trying to explain to us as 11 & 9 year old girls what 'beaver' meant!)
