    Never used a smudge pot, but seen'em in use. Climbed Mont Eagle from a two lane road one night, just off 24. Even ran Fancy Gap, on 52 in the dark, going North, loaded.

    I retired my City P&D Position march 5th Of this Year. The same day i started my new Full time Job as a City Transit Bus driver for Valley Transit in the City of Appleton Wi. Its a Great alternative to Peddling Freight and its One of The Last Teamster Jobs available from the city with a Pension and Free Health care. Hopefully i can do it for 5 years before i retire from Driving for good.
