    Or ya got a 10 year old tractor & you are looking for the shift pattern up on the overhead or visor only to find it is gone or long ago faded away. I wonder if today's GPS Software has shifting directions for a 4 by 4.? von.

    Don't need directions Von, Do you not realize us truck drivers know everything?
    When PIE aquired Transcon I drove one of their tractors 200 mi. before I noticed it was a 10 spd, ours was 9 spd.

    I quit running one the day I quit working for big box truckload carriers... far too much effort to mess with the antenna.

    Hah! I think you'll agree that nothing is better for fast running on I-80/90 west of Gary than Wagner's "Ride Of The Valkyrie".........

    Now you are speaking my language, Roy Acuff, Flatt & Scruggs, Bill Monroe, I guess the only thing close to you guy's music
    that would come in on my radio might be The William Tell Overture.
    Guess I'm not loaded with class.

    All music is sacred, and cuts across political, societal, and economic lines.......

    Except for the late '60's "They're Coming To Take Me Away" by Napoleon and the Bonapartes.......

    Now that we've mentioned this....."song"....Bro. Von,.....I sincerely hope I didn't plant an earworm in your head, and sometime today you'll find yourself tonelessly humming , nodding your head and beating out the time on a coffee counter somewhere..........

    Whatever you do......DON'T!! ....Google this....."song"........Madness lies in that direction.........

    What happens if we don't accept this mission?
    Will it still destruct?
