    Aw yeah! You’ll be stoked. Truck will feel so different you’ll wonder where the old boat you were driving went.

    Used to get excited for the road grader, but tried not to drive for a couple days after. They use that nasty mag water here and it's terrible to clean off. Now, I don't really get excited about the grader because there is so much big rig traffic that the smoother road only lasts for a week if I'm lucky. :(

    Went in a salvage shop here. Aisles packed with tourists like us. Maybe 1.5 square feet of footing between aisles. Sardinage.

    Most people that appear to be my age were talking about the latest celebrity gossip. I didn't follow what they were conversating about. Revealed to me just how far outside the "normal" I am for my age group. I started to feel very much like an outsider. Reminded me of the Geto Boys, Mind playing tricks on me.

    Decided it best to leave the establishment as I have nothing in common with any of these sheeple. Went outside, and hung around the cigarette smoking guards woman. Now heres some comfort. Someone I can relate to, and tell incredibly fucked up jokes to. It was refreshing to be able to have healthy, unrestricted discourse about some of the most fucked up topics. I always have related to the "vintage" models. It's hard to make macaroni noises in a 4 person tent in the same site as your parents though...

    I have nothing in common with my age group except just that. My age group. I don't even know how to initiate conversation with them without sounding like a Craig. Something to be avoided at all costs.

    My entire life I've never fit in with these new age shit heads. I've spent every moment people watching. Learning from them. I've always seen the couples. They stand out. Few I've noticed are comfortable with their significant other.

    I find myself in a strange time. Born in the wrong generation perhaps.
    Brainwashed :crazy:

    They use brine here but we won't have that down until likely the middle of June.

    Our biggest issue is high school kids coming out to the train trestle and rolling over on the loose gravel.

    What’s a Craig? lol

    When I was your age I was hitting up local bars in search of pootang and planning my next trip to Mardi Gras.

    Im guessing your work doesn’t have the greatest caliber of people to hang with from your stories.

    @Professional Hand Model can explain this one.

    There are no local bars. All are quite a ways outside my village. My region of Kentucky is esthetically pleasing, yet devoid of any night life due to my location within a certain JC belt.

    The highest caliber people I hang around on a routine basis is my parents, and truck.

    @Tundra2 You should see if there are any travel opportunities in your work which you can take advantage. Get some exposure to different areas and people.

    Ok, which one of you buttholes was arguing with me over how the luggage net clips come out of the panel behind the rear seat?

    Someone was trying to tell me that they twist out and I was saying that was wrong.

    At times... they are a waste of air.

    We are in penis-cola. 800+miles from home. My little brother came with us. He wants to watch tiktoks sitting in the truck instead of enjoying the area.

    We ask for help, and all we get is "huh?" And a confused look. Work is foreign to him. I am the only contributing offspring.

    I've explored this avenue. Didn't get anywhere as far as transfer to new plant. No traveling available.

    Yeah, you snap the entire piece in with the star wedge pulled out. Then push the star in and it expands, sort of like a rivet.

    Haha we’re having some issues w our 4yo that sound about the same, but I’ve still got time!

    Lil bro tried it for a year or so and it was too high energy for him.

    Change it now... you have time, but its fleeting.
    Not prying at all. Family trip. I'll make my own pilgrimage one day. Maybe next year when vacation time is replenished.

    Sequioa is our family hauler. My truck is my personal hauler.

    It always amazed me, the friends I had that tried scouts, and also swimming, that quit after the first day or the first month.

    Yes. Absolutely no work ethic. Unfortunately, these are the same people that play "the system." Edit: I have family that are 5th generation system players. They drive corvettes, and Mercedes. When it breaks down they just get another one. Makes me sick as a fuckin dog.

    17 beers in. Probably should sign off, but naw....

    Yes. I intervened in one of his schemes recently. As I posted earlier, legally... I can't speak further into this matter for the privacy of the potential victims.

    I still have the scar marks from my metal pedals cutting into my shin when I was hit by a car going over 40 mph on my bike at the age of 13, so I can relate.

    And the sidecars even got its own brake. Makes sense. I built a sidecar once for a motorized bike and was just wondering why I never thought to put a brake on it, then remembered I was stopping the whole shebang with a coaster brake, or tryin to anyways.
