Retired long distance trucker, veteran of the US Army, married to a wonderful lady named Betty for 48 years.. She is a retired RN who worked 43 years and 3 months at the same hospital. Took the short time required to finish my BS after the military, and graduated with honors. So what! You can't take the trucker out of those that love it, and I am one. A few months after my graduation , I rejoined the industry and seldom looked back.
In my mountain driving with our Motorhome I follow a procedure that works for me. If it is a hard surface road that 18 wheelers use, even in small numbers, I can drive that route in our 40ft Phaeton towing our Subaru. I do have a LOT of experience in mountains with 18 wheelers. I am attracted to mountains in a way that I really can't put into words. Yes folks, I took the picture accompanying my profile. A lucky morning in October at 9:44 MDT. Camera is set for East Coast. Gorgeous isn't it?
