desertbikes: Good time to be a driver if you take precautions. Most drivers never touch the load. Truck stops are the issue but a guy with a bed cab can even avoid that mess. Piles of papers are still used in that trade tho. State scales would be the other danger zone. Mar 29, 2020 8:18:56 GMT -7 *
lurker: and fatdaddy i think is out there driving a truck somewhere. everyone has a story to tell, some of us are more comfortable telling it.best of luck to everyone in these troubled times. Mar 28, 2020 12:50:24 GMT -7
desertbikes: Hope genericmember is ok. He's in the Bay Area lockdown somewhere. Been a while since he logged in. Altho we didn't have much to offer him here. Mar 27, 2020 16:43:17 GMT -7

lurker: we've been down to the 20s a couple of times, had big fat wet gobs of snow 3 or 4 days ago. rest of the week, high near 70, then back down into the 50s for the weekend. times like this i like to stay under the blanket, pile on another cat/dog. Feb 3, 2020 3:26:04 GMT -7
desertbikes: Our last nice day in the 70s for at least a week. 15-20' cooler starting tomorrow. It's nice for a change tho. Feb 2, 2020 8:21:49 GMT -7
