    Those Fla blizzards were tough on old folks.

    If you ran further south of Greenville SC, you might of seen the signs for Four Hole Swamp or Stinking Creek. That's what I remember driving home from MCAS Beaufort in the early seventies.

    We detoured there in the early 60s, when Barnes Food Express tore the old wooden bridges out at Kite Ga.

    A lot of oilfields had R-190-195's with RD 450's & RD 501's. The R-190 my neighbor had went to work on a farm after he passed away. I think it is still running. People made fun of Internationals calling them corn binders. corn shuckers, Farmalls etc. but they were tough & parts were not as expensive as other trucks. A lot of farmers used them because they could buy parts & get service locally.

    Grandpa came by his house when I would spend the night with a set of wiggle wagons with that style Volvo. I wanted to drive for the Big R ever since. That damn Bill Zollars ****ed me over had to settle for Holland.

    When I was 12 or 14 yrs old, all I wanted to do was drive for Big R, ugly dark green leased Autocar, 200 Cummins,3 spd Brown & Lipe.
    I would have driven for nothing, didn't thing about money, just driving that truck.
    Got all my knowledge listening to truck drivers tales.

    I'm just a truck driving fool who never finished school
    I got my learning at the old truck stop
    They said I won't amount to much when a gear shift
    And a clutch was the only education I got

    I'm just an old blue collar, semi-crazy road scholar
    They tell me that I'm half insane
    And I've been driving so long, I got diesel in my blood
    And ninety weight oil on my brain

    Man, that ain't making fun, Dad called them binders when I was a kid, bet you didn't think they had been invented when I was
    a kid.
