    IMO, it's like buying a pink lighter. You can guarantee no one is going to steal it. I bet '51 has had that cup since the day he got it 10 years ago. And he'll have it until it's unserviceable! :p

    Morning gents...

    Ever have one of those days in the heat where nothing’s going right, you’re stuck at a job site for a couple days and when you finally get rolling, one of your pilot cars loses a tire? Finally get rolling, gotta cover some miles, toss a coin on parking before the metro area and deal with curfew, or risking hammering through and getting far and away. You gamble, blow through the metro area, run an hour up the road, and get parked. I usually sit in the restaurant and pick with the waitresses, but this time, I got my food to go.

    Got a shower this morning, and my mind went to that guy who was bragging about not using a truck stop shower in 3 years because he uses giant baby wipes. Hey dude, do you know how good it feels to do a Schat, Shave and a Shower? How do you reward yourself after a grueling day? You should reward yourself. Well, I do.

    Time to rumble.

    If that puts out plenty of cold air for hot days, I’d be willing to try one. Even though I never heard much good about those portable style AC units.

    I had this ridiculous contraption in my bunk for the last two summers:

    280B98F0-190D-40CB-AC92-B408A60566AF.jpeg

    8,000 BTU window unit with 12” ducts. Intake to passenger window, exhaust out the drivers side. It worked REAL well, but the AC gave up the ghost this summer and I took it all out.

    Thinking about trying one of the mini-split units next, but what you have would work too as long as it works well. It gets hot around here.

    The more govt gets involved the less there is to like about this job. However, looking to the east and watching the sunrise listening to Dan Seals still makes it worthwhile. Its a shame most people miss out.

    To the ones staring up at the Empire State bldg, the ones hauling pneumatic in the northeast and midwest, to the ones waiting for the chrome shop to open. To the ones pulling the quickdraws, to the ones out in California, to the ones welding, playing golf in South Carolina, and enjoying time off in Wyoming and all my friends on #5

    Have a happy Friday and great weekend. Its time to show these boys how to truck.

    What will he finish the trifecta with? Like saying beetle juice 3 times. He will be crapping in that chemical tank with a hazmat suit on.

    Will it make you feel better if I put a second one next to current one? She is my "Heinz 57" truck.
