Re: Trust Land
A long time ago, truck drivers were the best, most conscientious drivers on the road, but that changed over the years. There are still a lot of skilled professional drivers, but there are also way too many that are not. I drove heavy oilfield trucks, mostly 18 wheelers, for 2 years in N E Texas. A lot of them were permit loads. To me all of them were deadly weapons, and I did not want to be involved in hurting or killing people, even when they did really dumb stuff. To this day, when I have to pull over on to the shoulder for any reason, I constantly look back at oncoming traffic. Depending on where it is, anybody riding with me has to get out of the vehicle and watch too. Rubberneckers and cell phone users are a serious threat, particularly to cops, but probably sleeping drivers and drunks are still the worst.
I apologize for getting preachy, but 3 years ago we had a young State Trooper killed at a stop 10 miles from my home. Nobody is better trained than they are, but it happened anyway.
Roaddog, don't let anything happen to you. Zeus would miss you for sure.
