    Dreaming

    Here I sit on the puter doing some catching up on what' going on. Thinking of getting my fall/winter time all figured out and I get a call. A fellow is begging me to drive a semi to La and back a few time a week. I have done this with him before a while back. Is an easy run, trailers are already loaded, just drop one and take another. I figure 8 weeks on the road should get me up and running for some serious adventures come December.

    If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

    If the money would allow you to do more - then do it.
    If you have better things to do with your time - do those.

    I hate driving in bumper to bumper traffic and even worse when driving anything big.

    It just takes the right attitude to wrangle 40 tons of Washington apples, or whatever, through seas of aggressive commuters. From what I've seen Randall can keep his blood pressure down, he does pretty well with what could otherwise be stressful situations.
