      Haha, that's funny, maybe you two actually are twins and you wound up being separated in infancy... Mom took one look at CC and said, "To heck with this, they ain't payin' me enough!!!" :rofl:

      You're welcome... these photos simply offer the public a glimpse into a separate reality, that often crazy and ever-changing world of OTR truck driving. :rofl: Unfortunately it's changing for the worse, and I'm not actually on the road right now, otherwise I'd NEVER have the time to post these shots. :no: :help: :rofl: By posting these photos, I chill out and remember all the good times I had... I always viewed OTR driving as a lifestyle and not a job, which is why I had so much fun back in the day. :applaud: The way the industry is now headed, I'm not sure a hand could DO what I once did so freely, using the truck to visit so many primo wilderness areas and historic attractions en route... :woot: :applaud: :bow: I guess ya can tell from my photos that I did things a bit differently than most drivers, though that's not the reason why I'm on the beach today. I won't get into that here, not enough characters allowed to tell the story... :rofl: I'm off to post a few more shots.

      Wanted to say thanks for posting the pictures. I'm enjoying them & it's nice that you like what you do. You're right about it not being for the family man too. My dad raised us by trucking. My sisters, baby brother, &
      I would line up for goodbye kisses on sunday & it was always dreaded. On the bright side, I followed dad around when he was home & he was a shade tree mechanic which in turn has lead me to this forum because I'm still following dad around when I can because there's always something to learn from him. Still love him & trucks! Roll on railsplitter! Be safe.

      Oh, yeah, how about those Mountaineers?!? :applaud: Can't go wrong with a name like that, not in my book... :rofl: I always had a good time in "The Hillbilly" and the people treated me right... plus there's some mighty fine scenery there, including that bridge over the New River Gorge. :bow: I wanna say the Gauley Bridge (?), the radical one high above the New River. That's a heckuva location for extreme sports too, with B.A.S.E. jumpers flyin' off the bridge and climbers tackling some difficult routes in the New River Gorge itself. I've crossed that bridge in bad weather too, with everything from blinding rain, hail, blizzard action, bright sunshine, you name it... all within 5 minutes!!! :rofl: :applaud: :bow: Of course, it's not so pretty when you're gripped behind the wheel... :rofl: :help: Lot of other pretty country in W. VA, but as a climber I really like that New River Gorge area... tremendous scenery there. :bow:

      Roger that, just wanted to ask because the surname SELF isn't that common, 10-4? I'm not actively searching for the dude, but I wouldn't pass up an opportunity to correspond with that classic hand again, right? Anyway, you're still okay in my book... anyone who posts a dog shot like that for his avatar can't be a bad guy or a crackerhead!!! (LOL) Thx 4 your reply, I'm outta here... "ADIOS!!!"

      Yeah, it's a labor of love for me... honestly, I can't see myself doing anything else, due to the freedom involved, and the fact that I'm not forced to work with or rely upon any "co-workers." That alone is one of the biggest reasons why I like trucking... gotta be with the right outfit though, otherwise it's no good. I like running long, from one coast clear to the other... gives me more opportunities to play the tourist, don'tcha know? My last good job went south with the economy, but I have a decent job lined up with an outfit in AZ, 100 trucks, not so large that it treats its drivers like dirt, and they run long the way I like to run. Running that wide open country out West is great, but I love it all... got Diesel #2 coursing through my veins, I reckon. One of my seven brothers lives right there on Lake of the Ozarks; he also used to live in Waynesville and Taos, so I know that area well... beautiful country there on those back roads.

    I'm only signing on here to post a few pictures of off-roading in 10-ton tractors... as well as showing what my friends and I do in our spare time. I do a lot of off-roading in a '96 Olds Cutlass Ciera... more off-roading than most "Disco Trucks" with lift kits, chrome shocks, monster mudders, etc. WTF, the stereo and A/C both crank, and that Olds handles all kinds of abuse... my favorite part is when I'm out in the middle of nowhere, miles and miles from pavement and civilization, where no Olds has any right to be, and some chumps pull up in a lifted "Disco Truck" as I'm leaning against the hood and pounding an ice-cold beer. That's when you can hear the egos deflate like a punctured tire: "PSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS..." I live for moments like that, full-on locals makin' a statement. Well, enjoy the truck camping photos, "I'm off to see the Wizard..." They call me "THE RAILSPLITTER" when they're not mad at me, which is why you'll never hear my handle, "10-FO'??????????"
