I can’t!! No drama. None!
No parts fell or broke off the trucks, my boom made the trip with nary a problem, smooth rides all the way start to finish.
The truck I drove had a pig squealing in the engine sometimes. Sounded like one anyway. Joe said it was the clutch to the engine cooling fan going out but not to worry. I did worry each time the infernal thing squealed a high pitched reeee noise then quit for a few minutes only to start squealing again.
With all the various and sundry things that have gone wrong or failed from the beginning of this month I figured on an almighty bang and shudder with pieces shooting out through the closed hood.
Just less than a mile of really bad weather was all.
The rivers are full to the tree line everywhere we go.
Strange Spring we are having.
Tomorrow we are going for one “repo” truck at a dealership in St. Louis, Missouri that is a “non-runner” and THAT could mean just about anything. We’ve picked up repo’s that have been stripped of everything that is sellable. Seats, smoke stack, tires, wheels, you name it and it is gone. Just a carcass left.
Then about 50 miles further is a “runner” in Foristell, Missouri. Means a bit of back tracking and some fiddling but these two trucks will pay our way home. Well, all but 20 miles and that is a good thing.
We’ll still be home Sunday. This is Memorial weekend here in the states. The majority of people will be going on a three day trip with family for mini vacations. Very few will be visiting grave sites leaving flowers as the weekend is intended to honor the departed military people.
Traffic will be a bugger but I’m going to Whole Lotta Scrap when I get home. I have plans and mini vacationers are not going to thwart those plans. The trucks might do that unfortunately.
So Yippee Skippy for the “No Drama” trip 🙂
Have a great weekend everyone.
