Ready for the Rockies?

Good lunchtime almost! We are just waiting for our rest clock to end so we can get out of here. I don’t know exactly what is in these hills around here, but the allergies are running full blast! We will start shortly towards Denver. We will have about an hour or so of our first broadcast until we go into a deadzone for signal for about two hours as we navigate the San Rafael Swell, Ghost Rock, and the other very steep mountain grades until we reach about Green River. While we won’t have signal, you can always watch the snowman camera and it will send out an image any time any hint of a tower comes along. There will be many times that we will buffer and most likely will lose the stream all along the way to Denver. Think about it, we are going through some very remote areas!

Finally got the newest Road Crew entry in the gallery. Way back on July 21, Stephen and Donald met us in Springville, Utah.

  3. I just got back from a hiking trip to the Colorado Rockies. The cone-shaped pine trees along I-70 in central CO are a beautiful shade of green this time of year. Safe travels and Lord bless.

  5. Thing I remember most while watching the live stream of you meeting with Stephen and Donald was the huge grin Donald had when he was walking away with his dad. You sure made Donald’s day. Pretty sure it is a memory that will last Donald a lifetime since you said they told you Donald wants to be a trucker too when he is old enough. What you’re doing is a great thing Steve.

    1. Donald is a younger me! That’s exactly how I was growing up and anytime I’d see a big rig. Wait a minute … I’m still like that (and I’m in my 50’s)!
      Must be why I love this site 🙂

  6. Way to go Steve you made another young man’s dream come true. How many trucker’s meet people on there journey’s, don’t think there are many. I remember the day you met Donald and his Dad and the smile on his face was precious. Steve, you are the best, you give of yourself and your time, and what you give to the people in chat is above and beyond. You are a wonderful and caring person. Take care and God bless.

  7. It’s wonderful that you take time to meet the road crew..I remember watching a documentary about the Queen and when she was young told ” you will never remember the people you meet but they will remember it for a lifetime”..I’m sure all the road crew you have met over the years will cherish that moment forever. I know i’ll never get to meet you but i love it when others do..Thank you for being such a great and generous man…
