PackRat,

That's Ok by me. I never push the Ram over 60-62 when pulling the 5th wheel. I'm easy to spot because I'm the one in the right lane when everyone else is going past. I'm easy to spot with a decal on the back of the 5th wheel of a USA bald eagle over all 5 US service branch symbols. I'm looking forward to seeing as many members of TT that I can especially you PackRat. What a great group of people.

Good morning,

Spent last night near Tallahassee, Fl. in Capps/Lamont, Fl. Fueling at the J in Midway, Fl. so I can take advantage of my 5 cent per gal. discount and then the Loves in Clanton, Al. then on to Pelham, Al. just south of Birmingham for Friday night. Sure feels real good to get back out on the road even if it is only a 5th wheel RV and not a semi. I still blink the headlights for passing trucks coming back to right lane and occassionally I'll say a few words to drivers on the CB.

Update complete for now so keep on trucking drivers and stay safe.

If you happen to float through the Denver, CO area it'd be fascinating to meet ya.

Sorry Keith I never intend to drag this 5th wheel that far. Just a personal thing. My wife and I like Tenn., Ala., Virginia and the Carolinas. Thanks anyway for the invite.

Just finished setting up at rv park in Pelham, Ala. for the night. It's a so-so old KOA and needs a serious make-over but it's only 1 night. Tomorrow it's I59N to I24W to Loves @ Jasper, Tenn for a break then US127/Tn 28N to Crossville, Tn. for the month of May. The Pilot @ I40 exit 320 is just 5 miles from where we are staying if anyone can do a meet and greet that would be wonderful. I'm always eager to meet fellow drivers and say hello. Be safe ya'll.

Ha, I just spent the night in Bessemer Alabama, about 20 miles from you. Then off to Westrock in Stevenson after I'm unloaded here.

Good morning everyone,

Arrived at Crossville, Tn. yesterday about 230PM. Glad to get back to the Rv retirement lifestyle. We'll be here for the month of May before moving on to Wytheville, Va. for June. So I'll be able to watch here for anyone that makes it to the Pilot on I-40 at exit 320 in Crossville, Tn. and would like a meet and greet. It is lovely to wake up to 50* rather than the humid 70* in Florida. Be safe everyone and thanks for letting me post my "OTR" trip.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Good afternoon all drivers,

I'm just sending a message to all of you to be safe during these crazy weather days of Mid Spring season. Snow in Wyoming and woke up this morning to the weather radio blaring a tornado warning here in Crossville, Tenn. Wife and I grabbed the essentials and headed across the Rv site to the laundry/shower building which is all cement block. Better than trying to ride out a tornado in a RV. All was ok after about 1 hour and just heavy rain. Just thinking about everyone.

I'm glad you guys fared well in the storm. It's funny how they are continuing to build these fifth wheel trailers so they are lighter and lighter. It helps us greatly when we are pulling them, but it isn't very comforting when camping during a tornado.
