Postcards from the Road! (Post Yours Please!)

These four are better looking from a distance, really cool, but not show pieces. Those enclosed trailers cost a bunch more for the owner to use as a transport option, too.

There are two newer Porsches on the rear of the trailer, but those don't do anything for me.

Very cool nonetheless Rob.

I once worked at a Porsche / Audi / Suzuki dealer. (Long story)...

Porsches were always delivered in fully enclosed (side-curtain) haulers. There was always a "special" little something in that last (to be unloaded) spot over the cab - 911 "whale-tail" turbo for example.

There was always great excitement and anticipation until the last little jewel was unloaded.

They still get me excited!

A working pay phone! (I picked up the phone to see if it had a dial tone, and it did)! ... at the Pilot in West Wendover, NV.

(West) Wendover, NV?

Gateway to the Bonneville Salt Flats? COOL!

Check out movie "World's Fastest Indian" for a glimpse into that place, that world, and just a really cool flick!

PackRat's 2020 Daily Driving Diary

31 October-Halloween

I have been negligent. AGAIN! Busy, busy, busy will be my excuse.

My numbers for October 2020:

Days Away From Home This Month: 31 (44 days total)

Days Driving: 28

I had one 34 hour reset in Boise, ID. I arrived on a Saturday, then the delivery was not until Monday. I had another reset plus at the terminal in KC, MO. I was there for a grease job when the carrier bearing was discovered to be worn out. Three days later, part arrives, installed, and on my way.

Dispatched Miles: 11,826

Hours Driving: 209.9

Average Miles Per Day: 422

MPH Average: 56.3

Fuel Used: 1480 gallons

Monthly MPG: 7.99 Real numbers; not off the dashboard.

Net Pay: $5943.75

Loads This Month: 15

Shortest Trip: 6 miles! Scaled a trailer that was way overweight, then returned it to the yard. GVW was 80,770! Not hauling that one. I was paid $65 for that one. I also made $20 for driving an abandoned truck and trailer from a truck stop back to the terminal one day while waiting. Some former driver quit and left it at a truck stop 15 miles from the terminal.

Longest Trip: 1967 miles. Madras, OR to Pella, IA.

First winter weather encountered this week (25-27th). Winds in New Mexico, plus snow and ice in NM, TX, and OK. I shut down three times but still delivered on time. I'm still 100% on time pick up and delivery for almost five years. YAY ME!

Lowest/Highest Temperatures: 18/88 degrees.

The current load I'm hauling is only 20,500 lbs of insulation from Indiana to El Paso, with a delivery on 11/2 at 0800. 552 miles to the consignee from Elk City, OK where I am parked tonight.

Still waiting for the Trick Or Treat'ers to stop by.....?

Great Update PackRat.

Nice numbers.

Maybe?

One thing I can't figure out is the fender mirror is folded in one direction, while the door mirror is facing the opposite.

I had the curtains closed, laying down and listening to the truck race on the radio when it happened, so I didn't see it, only heard/felt it. I thought the trailer had been backed into, not the cab. I have yet to receive any damage to a trailer. It's always the truck the idiots aim for. All three times, I've been driving a red tractor, too.

In sports cars it's called "Arrest Me!" Red.

In PackRats case it should be called "Hit Me!" Red!

Perhaps it's time to get another color tractor?!?

Portable Transportation Option: X-Treme Scooter

Looks fun.. you got one?!?!?

Rob D. ^^^^ check THIS out~! ;)

0787086001598310408.jpg

Yes. My scooter / project. Tiny wheels, short wheelbase but yes, fun. People seem to like it. Couple shout-outs. One passer-by when parked for break and photo said we wants to get one.

Broke spring-suspension seat moving it (not sitting on it!). Going with plastic-fatigue / someone else's large a$$, not mine... Down to close to 150 I think now... Suspension post and seat I put on folding bike fit and is pictured!

One more mod. to do... need to stabilize and reinforce steering rod. Too much movement when turning... make wheel offset from center. Thinking a through bolt to keep position and pipe to reinforce it will work.

Portable Transportation Option: X-Treme Scooter

Folding bikes, ebikes, folding ebikes, etc. were a somewhat popular topic here a while back...

Came up with this one...

$55 to buy... about $200 "all in". Wound up with 2 new sets of batteries, 4 spare headset bearing pairs. New charger included.

36-volts, 350 watts, 20 mph top speed, 22-range. This was reportedly there most popular model. Sold for about $400 before being replaced by 48-volt model.

Seat comes off, handlebars/steering shaft comes off...

Glad positive things came your way Bubba, sounds like you haven't quit on trucking either, just a pit stop. But glad life has stabilized for you.

Be well

Thanks Moe and Anne M..

Back to doing my Handyman thing. Actually had a record week for me... pulling in a solid 4 figures... all cash, and another nice pile of cash still due to come in.

Best friend bought a house for me in Milwaukee which I will be living in and fixing up. Not a great neighborhood but very utilitarian - centrally located, 2-car garage, full basement, finished attic (more storage space). "Good bones". $32,500 cash. Currently occupied so I can't move in for a while yet. Paying too much and driving too much from current abode in Lake Geneva but all-in-all... doing OK - especially considering the current state of the world.

As for trucking... it looks like that is not meant to be right now for me.

See my medical professionals at the end of the month. Expecting all good news there. Med. Cert. expiring soon. Planning on getting a 2 year this time around...

Thanks Moe. You be well too!
