Memorial Day Weekend

Howdy! I apologize for the broadcast being thrown to the buffer monsters.  I didn’t realize the plug had come off the phone earlier so the phone died and disconnected from YouTube.  We have started our time off and we will climb back in the truck sometime on Friday.  Stay tuned to the blog for any updates I might post.

  1. Steve have some real quality time off ..It seems like past few weeks been subject to delays and sudden changes in your trips and schedules both from your company those of shippers and delivery destinations as well as maintenance problems due to defects or others lack of concerns all causing your problems to throw wrench into your plans But threw it all you have preserveried..So get some good time off God Bless

  2. Steve! Have a good rest on your time off! You deserve it! Things happen! When your cord unplugged from your phone and YouTube. Take care.

  3. Steve, enjoy the time off and have a nice Memorial Day! This “trip seasson” was hard for you, so “recharge your batteries”, get rest and God bless! C´ya later after 5 days 😉

  4. A beautiful, inspiring video Steve! My dad, God rest his soul, served in the army in the south Pacific during WWII. I hope you are enjoying the holiday and time off and get plenty of dry time to work in your garden. God bless and safe travels upon your return.

  5. Blades of grass and pure white stones
    shelter those who’ve come and gone
    Just beneath the emerald sod
    our boys have reached the arms of God.
    Buried here in dignity, endless rows for all to see.
    Freedom’s seeds in sorrow sown,
    Blades of grass and pure white stones
    cover those who left their homes, to rest in fields, side by side
    lest we forget their sacrifice.

    1. Well said TK. Attended a Memorial Day parade today and was proud to be able to salute our real heroes. Thank you Steve and all who served.

    2. Eddrck, thank you for sharing. I cannot believe this. I’d been worried about him the past few days because he was having trouble with his COPD. He had just gotten his two new puppies who he adored. And he ran Wally’s diner for the road crew. What a huge void this will leave in chat. RIP Walt, I feel like I’ve lost a good friend. 💔

    Walt Smith – N1DQU “I want to THANK you All for Your Prayers. ( yes, they Work)! And Thanks also for your support too. But for now will be Just Lurking!! Ok!!”

    Walt as we say goodbye to your physical form – we cannot and will not say goodbye to your spirit because it will always be with us, traveling on the road with BigRig Steve.
