Glad you had a safe trip and with no problems. Grin
You should have made the side trip up to Palestine,Texas and we could have compared notes!
MPG sounds like it's about what my Buffalo did on it's trip to Florida 7.1 mpg with the V730 at 65mph on the interstate.

JLV,

I was trying to get together with you, but those pesky texans kept me tied up.

Hey Cliff,

Don't forget about Becky and I are in Abilene. Stop by the next time you are this way. Course it would be better if I'm around.  Grin

Glad you made it home safe and had fun to boot!

See Ya,

Paul

Paul,

You bet!

Hey, Any future plans for you to do any work at this GIANT concrete plant there building in Coleman, FL?

If so, or anytime your down this way, give me a call.......

So happy to know that you're home safely, m'friend. Not only did I enjoys sharing your trip with you on the phone but I giggled a bit when reading your scenario.

But Cliff, notwithstanding the fact that Julie made it through the gears without any mishap...your concern about her inexperience in not braking the bus shouldn't have bothered you one bit.

After all, she had the good sense to marry you didn't she?

So much for HER judgement!

As for my tongue-in-cheek humor...when I re-read my post I wasn't that happy with it. I guess what I meant to say was that Julie has excellent judgement, as do you since you seem to have 'married up', but   she might have caught someone other than a Bus driver! ;

Hey Cliff,

Not sure about the plant you are speaking of. Most everything in the concrete block business in Florida has slowed down a lot. A lot of our customers have shut down some of there plants until the economy has turned around.  Cry

If I ever get the chance to go there I will look you up!

On Friday, 13Th, I met a conversion on I20 between Dallas and Tyler. Wondered if it was you? Between 6:30 and 7:30 pm. I was having tire trouble, and both hands on the wheel, so could not respond to whomever it was . Big John.

Cody,

Give me a heads up when you pull out (B4 the snow this time)

We would really enjoy You and Libby stopping by for a few days.

I understand that!

June, July and August are what we pay here for our mild Winters.

But 120, time to go.......
