Over the road driving sucks. Only real money in trucking is specialty stuff like what I do .... unless you hooked on with some local place that would hire without much (any) experience. You'd have to know someone. We don't hire without at least 3 years experience with a CDL and over a year of flatbed. Then, the n00bs don't get the high dollar loads for at least a year.
Yep...That's how I ended up in retail no money in it after I got my CDL in high school.... I was thinking about getting back into the propane delivery end of things.... I only need to get to Oct. 2015 then I can take out my two retirements!

Think you could drive your truck across a frozen lake, Shammy? Listening to that ice crack under ya?

Not me, thanks.
I've seen what they make. Not as much as me.

Turkey, ham & swiss sammich for lunch.

Go leftovers!

Got a 2 gallon stockpot simmering with home made turkey noodle soup right now.

Gonna freeze some of it. Should make good comfort food when it's subzero this winter.

I'm sure all these made up "reality" shows pay the "non-acting" actors ....

Gaither to IR. Whoopee!! We all wanted him signed, but that sure backfired.

Spent a good deal of the day playing with an old adult sized go kart for the dirt. That has been sitting down at my folk's barn for the last 12-15 years.


Had already taken the seat off there- it's gonna need a new seat, plus I wanted to take a look at the channels for the brake/gas. Gonna need new rubber all the way around and I have no idea where to start on the engine. It's not frozen, which I suppose is a good thing. Will do what I can with it (change oil, carb cleaner, gas it up, new spark plug) and see if it goes. Gotta find a chain, etc for it and the old disc brake in the back is kinda scary looking. LOL.



Some of you guys in here are good with this stuff- lemme know if you have any tips/recommendations/warnings based on what you see.

BTW- that skinny little tire on the front was bolted to the front as a spare. There is a decent 6x4.5 rim with a flat tire not shown in the picture. Missing on the other side.

Five gallon jerry can for a fuel tank? That thing should run for a week straight before needing gas.

Ammo box is what, a battery box? Is the carb missing, or is that where the exhaust manifold bolts on?

How many horsepower is the motor?

That thing has alot of potential, and would be fun to restore.

Single wishbone front end. Do you have the shocks for it?

What kind of shape are those spindles in? They look kinda rotted. Is that mostly surface rust?

Might wanna find some meat for the front, instead of those pizza cutters.
