    Ok.
    Another long day yesterday,
    Waiting to load today, maybe just be the one, it’s only 142 miles and ends within 20 miles from home.

    its been one of those weeks that nothing has gone right.
    Not quite as bad as the below situation would be...

    But... what if it’s not there..?
    Will we know..?
    Would it be like going to sleep and not waking up..?
    Why would it matter that all such things will be gone within a blink of an eye....

    I'm not a fan of line dancing, but sometimes it's worth watching.

    And this is why we have always had a truck or more in the open lane to hold back traffic. Unfortunate for a few of these guys that have got tickets for that. S o now we have the zipper merge, where in some places they have signs telling us to use both lanes to the merge spot. Then take turns. Great idea. Well, in theory anyway. But from what I have seen here you see so many trucks getting into the lane that will remain open, that you have all the cars passing in the other lane. I think the only way that this type of merge could work would be if the trucks were to split up into both lanes in pretty equal numbers. Yep, not gonna happen. So the more they try to change the merging tactics, the more they stay the same.
    As far as @Wasted Thyme's question, there was a time when he got to the merge by passing the other trucks on the right, no one except a 4 wheeler would have let him in.

    No cartridge projectiles. No cartridges in the way we think of them now. They are developing something with the cartridge-less technology now to replace the 240 SAW.
    Higher, cooler, rate of fire, and the ammo weighs a fraction of what ammo weighs now.

    That metal storm has been around for awhile. Think it's electromagnetic.
