Waving hi.
 
This load of lumber is taking me to SC. So I'll be waving hi to all you SC guys tomorrow. Most likely I'll head to NC and load a front end loader afterwords.

Shakermt:
Did you ever race your rig against me or my engr bros on other RR's?

I once collided with an empty gasoline semi truck at the refinery at
Spring, Texas. Hit the left rear tandem wheels.

Driver's boss fired him at the spot of collision!!! I wan't going over 24
MPH. His story was cars behind him were blowing their horns to cross in
front of me.

Motorists and truck drivers seem to think they can outrun trains to
crossings? Bad move Y'all.

I make a habit of NOT racing choo choos. They win every time.

What are you wearing for the SC run (watches not boxers or briefs).

Most drivers fail to consider the optical illusion that trains are going slower than
they are. I've sat in sidetracks awaiting opposing trains. I'd see em coming and
thot they were crawling. But when train arrived on main track at the side track
he'd be doing 60 or more MPH.

Takes thousands of feet to stop even lightly loaded freights. Even a mile or more
for 18,000 ton coal trains I used to run. I hit too many cars n trucks in 40 years
Begging you to BE CAREFUL it's my plea. People taking chances with kids in the
car. Dumb dumb dumb.
