still alive and kicking......
« on: January 17, 2010, 02:30:50 AM »
hey all. It's been awhile. Sorry for a long lack of updates..I've been busy and trying to figure out what to do 'behind the scenes' in my life...The last few months have been rough on me and I'm trying to look forward to better days.

I'm thinking about taking a dedicated route in Fl. I put my name on the list.

I'll update this with more about me later today.  if anybody is interested here's what I've been enjoying in my spare time. some of you may remember back in nov 08 when i got it. heres what it looked like on 1/4/10 (the way i got it)

and here is what it looks like as of 1/8/10

Hi Pat

 Good to "hear" from you again. Both trucks look really sharp. 8-) Life's all about choices and i have no doubt you'll make the right ones as you've done in the past. :-) I've been lookin' for you down here in SW Florida - do you ever get to the Wal-Mart DC in Arcadia on 17? :?

Charlie, come to Ocala  :-D :-D :-D :-D


I've been taking a lot of time off lately, and taking it easy. She has just over 411,000miles on it now, it's 3 years old as of november. And I will have it for 3 years next month  :-D :-D


Hoping to get on a dedicated route in Fl where I will get down south Charlie  :-D :-D

Growing tired of the "long haul" Pat? :wink: Your pick-up truck looks pretty snazzy. While it's not really my thing, it's not overly done and tasteful.

The first 386 I saw that I liked, it's AWESOME! The green looks great with the pin stirpes and it was customized very well. Chevy looks great, I hope to have a C10 like that some day. :lol:

Pat:

I wish you luck with your decision...whatever it may be.

I was de-identifying and decalling a Clark Transfer KW W900 this morning. The driver had just left Marten Transport after 10 years. I asked him why he left and he said that he can't make a living doing 60 mile trips...this because MTL is shipping a lot by rail and it has cut into O/O mileage. And he said it was time for a change!

Maybe you can sign on with Clark Transfer and come to Acme for your inspections and my decal job!  :-D 8-) :-o

BTW...because of the crappy overcast sky this morning, I DID NOT shoot that KW. The unit number is 566 and the driver's last name is Wee.
