    Growing up in California folks kinda looked sideways at us for buying commercially canned products.

    Dad wanted the food stash in case of earthquake or other infrastructure disruptions. Just wanted enough to keep us alive so we could hide out till we could safely escape the metropolitan area.

    Yes.. Mr. @Blu_Ogre .. specially in a place where those disasters do happen once in a while...
    I have met people in the US that canned their food... food that they grew in their garden... :yes2557:

    Well, thought I had my truck fixed on the front seal, well technically it was, but while the mechanics had my truck idling, hood down, saying it was ready, the darnedest thing happened.
    An explosion.
    So while they both ran, I opened the hood to see the A/C line had blown off.
    So I am thinking pinched line, maybe evaporator.. but no problems there so I am leaning to pinched line when they put the air to air back on..
    Oh the joy.
    Thoughts?

    I stopped in Troutdale for some epic Chinese to go.

    Two things I've noticed. Wait four things.

    1) Why are there so many Bob tails here?

    2) Why are there so many people begging? These aren't really like beggars though, they seem like pot heads.

    3) Why are so many flat bed tractors numbered 777?

    4) Why are people ZOOMING through the lot to get a spot, and there are still spots, but they come up to one, stop, then ZOOOOOOM off?

    It appears the fine folks of east central Alabama don't take this new internet and cell phone thing very seriously. Sending this out like a message in a bottle. Will be 44 pages behind when I get out of here if Joe Dirt doesn't get me first. Joe is currently working at TA and doesn't have the tool to take a theft proof lug nut off. Kinda unbelievable.
    Putting my phone on the dash in hopes my message gets out in case something happens.

    I can top that.

    Stopped to get a fuel filter changed at the TA in Meridian Mississippi and the same kid didn't have the keys to his tool box to get the filter wrench.
