So I'm sitting at the rest area on dead man's pass in Oregon taking a 34 during a 2000 mile run. Was wanting a hotel/resort but since covid screwed me out of most of the luxury stuff I like I decided to rough it. Ha ha...

Take advantage of the small things when you can. Plus drove hard to get here so when I finish this run in morning I will have a full 70 and 3 days left to add onto this pay week. Plus a hike!!

Get rid of that Red Bull S. and you can add some more years to your own clock.

Enjoy your 34 hour reset and the scenery around there as best you can.

Yeah I agree. Get rid of the red bull man. That stuff really is terrible for you.

Ugh your poor teeth and kidneys.

But good on you making your own adventure! Oregon is great this time of year. I'm in PA on side of road waiting for a tire and air bag replacement. Gotta make New York City tomorrow with only 6 hours on my 70.

Although a hike would make me all sweaty and nasty...I guess pros and cons to each situation.

It will be ok I don't drink sodas mostly tea and water occasionally bull on active days. Turned into a Bush whack mile 4 so didn't make river. Still fun though. It started sleeting on way out while sun was shining mountains micro climates are crazy.

You don't carry your own air tools?

Welcome to trucking! Where good days sometimes turn bad, and bad days sometimes turn to nightmares.

Hang in there Spaceman. The sun will rise tomorrow and you'll turn a new page in your story. Trucking is usually three months of bliss and ignorance brutality interrupted by unexpected mayhem. It's all part of what makes you a professional.

That's some classic PackRat stuff right there. He's ready for anything. That's how he garnered his moniker.
