  • CeRap, here I come (update: Made it- and back!)

    Just pulling out, but wanted to share this quote; it's from the preface of a book called Americana- Roadside Memories, by Tim Steil... it speaks for me as well[8D]:

    I suppose there are people in this world who are unaffected by the smell of diesel smoke. That, leaning against a truck stop gas pump at 3 AM, a warm summer breeze full of corn pollen, and exhaust fumes bathing them would not give them an urge to purchase a tall coffee, jump on the nearest highway and drive until daylight just to see what's there. I am suspicious of them.

    Me too, Mr. Steil



    Good Lord (and Highway Patrol) willing, I'll see you Monday afternoon![^]

          What more could one want a rode to somewhere and the will to drive it. Long drive but I made to CR today. Have a safe trip and watch that guy following you in the rearview.

            Wish I could be there with you folks. It would be a wonderful drive from here, but life sometimes, well... quite often really (LOL), gets in the way. I hope you have a great trip Bob, and everyone there has a great time.

              Good luck, Bob. Traveling right behind you, but planning on a stop at Sasco Monday morning.
              Hope you arrive safely to read this.

                  See you when you get here, Bob. I arrived at about 6:00 P.M. Sharing a room with Dick Clemens.

                    Parts for a car salesman on my tab??? I can't wait for this. [:I] Well, at least it looks like you'll have cash for a couple minutes after you get the Skytop there. No problem, I'll call you tomorrow, buddy.

                            Well, I don't know about the corn pollen, but you should be getting a good dose of Cotton wood blowing in the air!

                            Be safe and we'll be looking for ya!
