My current view from the Flying J up in Lamar PA. Hate the mountains but it sure is beautiful up here.

I bought the new GoPro Fusion 360 degree camera and went snowboarding with it the other day. Here is a complete run down Whiteface Mountain from summit to lodge. Whiteface is near Lake Placid, NY in the Adirondacks and the home of the Winter Olympics in 1932 and 1980. The 1980 Olympics were the ones with the famous US Hockey Team win over the Russians.

You can move your phone around in the air to look around the video or you can drag around the video with your finger.

DAC:

Drive-A-Check Report

A truck drivers DAC report will contain detailed information about their job history of the last 10 years as a CDL driver (as required by the DOT).

It may also contain your criminal history, drug test results, DOT infractions and accident history. The program is strictly voluntary from a company standpoint, but most of the medium-to-large carriers will participate.

Most trucking companies use DAC reports as part of their hiring and background check process. It is extremely important that drivers verify that the information contained in it is correct, and have it fixed if it's not.

Always a cool moment when I see my little girl's eyes light up when I get home.

I am so jealous. I haven't been snowboarding since I lived in South Korea.

I was heading home yesterday. All the lights light up on my dash engine starts running like a dog. Start smelling rotten eggs rut roh batteries are overcooking. As everything is shutting down I roll off the freeway on a get off ramp. 93 miles from home dead truck batteries are swollen and hot. Get towed to shop needed 4 batteries alternator and a wire harness. Nice times but then I get to the hotel wife my bride luckily she went with me this trip. Hotel turned out real nice as was the jacuzzi, with a great Mexican restaurant across the street. So even though the truck burnt a hole in my wallet along with it's batteries it was a very cool afternoon and night.

This just happened. I'm at home, letting my dogs outside while it's snowing. All of a sudden, a snowflake falls on my robe and I noticed that it's just perfect!

My cool moment for the day.

Getting backed (perfectly straight and centered, no less) into this door:

With this much wiggle room up front:

And the setup being backing in off the street down this driveway:

And the whole maneuver only took 10 minutes.

Go Team Me! 😁
