    C’mon, the Ponderosa was in Tahoe, still a days ride to Virginia City for a quench at the Bucket O’ Blood.

    That’s where Big Dave’s long lost twin brother lived.

    Imagine the saddle sores from Jemez Springs!

    Last I heard, the Dream Team were banned from Canada after being beaten with wet pool noodles by the local linehaul drivers. Besides, Wong doesn't like trains and those trucks pull big ones out west! Rockies and Turnpikes, but with 53' trailers instead of 48'.

    You couldn't gear it low enough to get it out of the parking lot with 170 ponies. Can you imagine those 2 trailers maxed out on gross & 170 horses trying to pull the 3 sisters in Wyoming? Ya could schedule a weeks long vacation to watch that action. von.

    I had to make a NASCAR type 4th lane on the biggest Sister one winter. I had 15,000 lbs on, at 30 mph in snow. Truck in right lane was spinning, but sliding backwards, back down the mountain. Truck in middle was spinning, just sitting. Truck in left was moving at 5mph. I held my breath, probably pooped my panties, and made a new lane in 8" snow on the left shoulder.

    Made it. God looks out for fools....

    It wasn’t your time, there was more for you to contribute. At least you had clear vision in the moment. Like dirt racing, looking for traction on the high side.

    You know how it works, one second earlier or later alters fate.

    The bad weather place on I-80 is between Cheyenne, WY & Laramie, WY. There is a small mountain range between the 2 towns that acts like a wind tunnel. Plus all those snow fences you see along the highway are not there for artistic effect. I haven't run that area in 30 years, but they used to close the highway right on the edge of Cheyenne so people wouldn't be stranded out there & freeze to death. Can be a fun place to travel in the winter, if on a snowmobile. Little America on I-80 not far from Granger, WY is another place you don't want to be stranded in. 2010 population, 68. von.

    You bunch of pansies, you should deal with the snow we have between Tampa and Miami, deeper than our orange trees.

    I had enough seniority to avoid those runs.
    I was called a panama hat driver
