Biker Babe

You know, women on motorcycles are the same as women in cars. This bike pulled up beside me and paced me (not something they usually do). So I looked over. Thin, pretty woman (meaning not biker trash) out for a cruise on her Harley. Hehe. The pacing was her way of giving me a chance… Continue reading Biker Babe

Michigan On A Friday

Peddling toward Michigan. Yes. On a Friday. Just as I expected, what followed the missing load yesterday was another personal attack. Well, that’s the way I see it, anyway. They put a load on me that couldn’t deliver before Saturday in Michigan. I balked. I was determined that if they wouldn’t let me drop it… Continue reading Michigan On A Friday

Imaginary Load

Old Hickory, Tennessee. I just tried to pick up a load that isn’t there. Epes sent two trucks to pick up one load. The lady at the shipper said “I told them on Tuesday that I only needed one truck”. Naturally I’m wondering if this is further harassment from Fuck-tard and the load planner. “There’s… Continue reading Imaginary Load

Check Out That ETA

Headed back to Statesville, North Carolina to pick up a load to Hermitage, Tennessee. Which is stupid. I delivered in Statesville yesterday. And they give me a load that can’t deliver until 10pm tonight and is only 384 miles? Well, this is punitive. The Fuck-tard threatened me last week after a run-in over me not… Continue reading Check Out That ETA

The Ugly American

I’ve been hearing a lot lately about Columbia University President Lee Bollinger’s statements while introducing Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. I was surprised by some of the remarks. Not that I necessarily disagree with them, but they were said while Mr. Bollinger was introducing Mr. Ahmadinejad. His comments were more suited to a debate than an… Continue reading The Ugly American

What A Day

My day got off to a bad start. To say the least. Kicked it off by leaving Kings Mountain and heading down the Blacksburg to fuel. My fuel card wouldn’t work. So I asked if I could fuel farther down the road, and went on to Gaffney. My fuel card wouldn’t work there, either. So… Continue reading What A Day

Thoughts on Jena, Louisiana

I’ve been hearing a lot lately about racism and “Jim Crow” justice in Jena, Louisiana. All I’ve really heard about was that six black men beat one white man, and a lot of blacks have been upset about the fact that the black men were arrested. At least, that’s the surface impression that I got… Continue reading Thoughts on Jena, Louisiana

Violated in Georgia

Just had a weird experience in a weigh station in GA. They called in a bunch of trucks (myself included), and when I got up to the officers who were standing out there, one opened my gas tank, stuck in a plastic or paper strip, looked at the other one and said “Okay”. Then they… Continue reading Violated in Georgia

Possibilities

Been listening to the World of Warcraft soundtrack this morning. Yes, children. I bought the soundtrack. It’s been an interesting experience. Of course it’s cool to listen to more detailed and ambient versions of familiar themes, such as the Main Title theme and some of the city themes (each major city in the game has… Continue reading Possibilities

Peddling Toward Farmville

I haven’t been writing from the road much. Mainly because nothing much has been happening. No bizarre encounters in truck stops and rest areas. No sudden revelations or licking of old wounds. I haven’t been going to any particularly interesting places. Been seeing a lot Virginia, North & South Carolina, and Georgia. Or maybe I… Continue reading Peddling Toward Farmville
