Well, it is nice to be back to my "home" especially to see my grandparents again :thumb:
wen't down to see my mom's grave site, put some flowers down, and got that "first visit since she died" thing over with.

Then went down as a rite of passage and took a pic of my truck in front of the words most famouse fuggen lighthouse...(maybe not worlds moast famous, but most people have seen pic's of this place if they ever saw ANY of eastern Canada.)


Great trip so far, truck still running like it's First On Race Day ;)
And I must say I still live by Dura Lube in my engine.

Running about needle width cooler on the water temp already, and after 74,000 K (mostly) city this long cruise is really doing the truck good.
Only complaint, the drivers seat sucks!!! Can only stand 6-7 hours stright before my lower back says "O-H, pull over, stretch and make the blood flow to your legs again."

Thank god for Satalite raido, and it must be my mind set or something, but it sure ain't as fun as it used to be on the highway in my Freightliner :(

SHould be done here in a day or so then it's west ward ho young man..........

See ya in the movies.

Be safe out there, and be sure to drop in and say hi when you can.

Mr. Over-Head, you should stop by a Walgreen's ... there's one about every mile or two in every direction throughout the world. They have this deal that you put on your seat that provides lumbar support. It's kind of a wire mesh thing. Black. Costs practically nothing.

Might help.
