Here I sit beside the road. Just 15 miles north of Springfield, Missouri.
Joe and I were in Strafford, Missouri yesterday morning to get two running Peterbilts going to the auction in South Sioux City, Nebraska.
We shuttled the two Peterbilts to Springfield, Missouri where the two “Dead” trucks were waiting for us at the Peterbilt Dealership.
Both of these trucks had to be moved into position for us by use of a forklift.
The blue truck had a headlight popped out from the socket.
A few strips of Gorilla brand duck tape will hold it for the trip to auction.
Took us all day to get hooked up with all the shenanigans.
Leaving the hotel this morning to head for the auction site in Nebraska my oil pressure gauge went from 40 psi to 20 psi within 15 miles of the hotel. Now I get to be towed back to Springfield.
Yesterday’s SNAFU – “Situation Normal All Fouled Up” has turned into today’s TARFU – “Things Are Really Fouled Up”. Before I go and jinx myself I’ll just be grateful things have not escalated to FUBAR – “Fouled Up Beyond All Repair” status.
Now we are going back to the Peterbilt Dealership to get my boom off and stored on Joe’s trailer. We might make it to Nebraska to deliver Joe’s trucks by tomorrow in time for the auction.
All righty folks….Are we having fun yet?
