I love trivia like what you posted here in this thread ... to me it is sooo interesting (which is why I tend to run at the mouth when I talk about Donner & Truckee) ... isn't it cool to have those kinds of connections and that kind of history associated with a particular place? Especially one that is so beautiful ... lucky you!

New Mexico / Arizona. There's an 8% grade hill. Except we have a 78,000lbs+ load. Brakes & clutch work, and so does 8th gear. :)

That's the school house in DeBorgia that I mentioned earlier.

More fun facts for Jopa-Back in the day, there was a terrible thunderstorm one evening. Three ladies left church and were walking home during the storm. As they passed in front of the school house, a lightning bolt hit Mrs. Cooper. It went in thru her left eye and blew out her right shoe. It was raining so hard, the other ladies had no idea what had happened until the next day when they found her body. That same bolt of lightning hit the Man in the UpUp Lookout tower over 15 miles away. Killed him too.

This is the Man who's mother I mention.

I've not seen one of those films in 30 or more years-but they were sooo funny at the time. The Coopers are legends now in those parts.

And my Grandmother was one of the ladies with Mrs. Cooper when she was killed...


Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Some of the craziest roads I've traveled would definitely be state highways in Pennsylvania, but the one that stands out in my memory the best was the time I went through the Salt River Canyon in Arizona. Jake breaking down through those curvy descents into that canyon was really cool and the memories of it still make me want to return and do it again some time.
