  • American Minute for November 22nd
    On NOVEMBER 22, 1963, in Dallas, Texas, shots rang out as President John F. Kennedy was assassinated. The youngest President ever elected, being 43 years old, he was also the youngest to die, barely serving 1,000 days. Kennedy was on his way to the Dallas Trade Mart to deliver a speech, in which he prepared […]

Ice!

We are sitting in the middle of the road with our wheels in the rumble strips…sitting due to hills and trucks jackknifing and four wheelers sliding into each other….I watched as several kept sliding and came within inches of sliding right into us!

What map?

Morning! Well we have been all over the map and not even following the trip map today. Why? Well…don’t ask questions, just enjoy the ride! Actually, a few wrong turns and a fella can end up in different places! Oh well, no harm done. Break time for us then we keep rolling along.

Easy Day

Afternoon to all the Road Crew! We arrived at our shipper but our load is not ready yet so we will hangout tonight at the Royal Farms corner store and go pick it up in the morning and start fresh! Boy oh boy, I am ready for food and rest! The last few days off have been fun but very busy! Sometimes I think I work my body more on my time off than when I actually work! So, what did I do? Where did I go?

Sunday night I went to Gettysburg and found a nice little mom and pop motel for just $45/night.

Monday, I went to the Smithsonian Institution – the “overflow” museum that is actually in Virginia, but not far from Washington DC. That was called the Steven Udvar-Hazy Center. That took all day long since there was so much to see including the Space Shuttle Discovery and the SR-71. I then took a walk around at night around the Washington Mall. I saw the back of the White House, numerous huge buildings, the Vietnam Wall, Lincoln Memorial, Washington Monument, and lots of other things in the area. It was dark, very windy, and COLD!!!

Tuesday, I ventured out to the Air and Space Museum on the mall and had to walk numerous blocks taking photos along the way. Tons of things to see and do there such as the Wright Flyer, Spirit of St Louis, moon rocks and Apollo 11.

Wednesday, I took a two hour bus ride through the Gettysburg Battlefield. I really did not take many photos because it took all I had to not fall out of the bus seat I was so sore….not to mention the wind and cold temperatures and too many clouds!

Thursday, I visited the home of the Star Spangled Banner – Fort McHenry in Baltimore, Maryland. After that, I took the ferry from Lewes, MD to Cape May, New Jersey! Then, the long drive through the night back to Jonestown where the truck was parked.

You can see the four galleries I have already uploaded HERE, more to come later. I am taking the rest of the day off and we will roll on out tomorrow!

Ready?

Good morning! The trip is posted and I am running behind! I will tell ya all about the vacation while we are being loaded…since the shippers are gonna be awhile! First, we need to get the trailer washed out before heading to Delaware! Let’s go!

Time Off!

Evening to ya! Well that time has come again – time for your driver to take a break and enjoy some down time. Ever since I was a kid, I have wanted to go see the Spirit of St Louis airplane at the National Air and Space Museum, Smithsonian Institution! I plan on doing exactly that tomorrow morning in Washington DC!! I will not have the cameras running on my time off, but will put a blog post up and probably update the instagram photos from time to time.

I am going to explore and enjoy the area as much as possible! Lots of things to do and see around here for sure!
