I was Owner/Operator was bit and gray and shiny. Those that drove company they had to keep them in perfect order in and out. Co person could be in best of standing and come into Des Moines and owner came out and that truck was all dirty and dirty inside you were gone. Crazy. Smithway SMX Ft.Dodge, Ia owner called grandad he was fit over clean trucks should have seen his face when he opened one of co trucks and he was eye to eye with a snake driver carried with him. I know not funny but it really was gald it him and not me.
AJsHuman….What a life....I thought, for a time, that it would be for me (I do love to drive) but I decided that I really am too much of a homebody. I do, however, just for fun, go driving around. Sometimes I actually try to get lost, take turns that I don't know where they go, and then another, and another, I always seem to know the right direction to get home. Maybe that's why Dad lets me navigate when I fly with him??? Maybe I have some of that "Incredible Journey" thing in me???:D
No fault of yours. Chicago is a nightmare!! Always under construction and poor signage. (although I've found that true of Atlanta and Houston as well when they're doing major construction)
City planners need to consider out-of-towners when placing signs during construction.
Chicago; Portland, OR; Dallas; Houston; Los Angeles; Atlanta; Pittsburgh….I think these cities, among others, have invested lots of money in the company that makes those traffic cones. They're working for a return on their investment.
There wasn't any construction in the area of Chicago I got lost in, just everything looked the same! Drove past the same store going the same direction four times...some Indian, eh?:D
And pay no attention when the kids decide it will be funny to change the signs!! Happened to me once in Indy. Sorry, but, on my own I would've been back on the highway in minutes. As it was, my friend insisted that he knew where he was going and …...we saw some of the worst parts of that town B4 getting back on the road. And (Basenji Forums and all) I couldn't stop thinking about my boy back in the kennel.
Luckily we both lived through it......that guy....well.....I know he is still alive.....somewhere:)
