Been away for a while, messed up my cheat sheet and had the wrong information. Looked back at a very old cheat sheet and found the correct info for my account.

So, I'm back.

Latest trip, maybe something you can see maybe not.

I do not travel out of the area more than once every 1-2 years.

Highlighted was driven by 17 year old grandson on a permit. I-81 and I-95. Experience in traffic.

I was through your part of PA last week. Down 22/322 to I-81 and south on Thursday, back Sunday. Been to NC for a wedding. Things have not changed much since the 90's when I traveled to WV on a regular basis. More trucks on I-81 if that is possible.

The trucks are a serious problem on 81 around here. They're working to widen 81 to 3 lanes.  If the trucks would just slow down a bit, things might be better. Unfortunately the drivers are bound to schedules that are set for optimum road conditions and don't allow for delays.  The end customer is the problem as well.  Places like Walmart, Lowes, etc. set appointment times. If a driver is 10 mins late, he risks being refused.  I'm glad I'm out of that part of logistics and supply chain.  

I didn't get to SC this fall for a meet since it was cancelled - lack of interest.  Hopefully things will pick up and we'll be able to meet in March.

All along, especially Chambersburg there are huge truck docking buildings, like Target where they must have at least 100 docks filled with trucks at one time. And then with crossings at PA turnpike and I-70 down the way and it is a transport corridor. Goes from Canada border to near Knoxville where you can get to I-40 & I-75.

Now, if they could get a good way to get from Williamsport to Harrisburg it would be nice.

Happy motoring.

Took the front end off a Jeep today. These old Cherokees are so easy to work on. This little truck was defiantly worth saving from the scrap yard. The body is still in decent shape for a 18 year old Wisconsin Jeep. When were done with it, its going to have a whole new front end, nice big steel bumper (so the next deer bounces off), and be riding a few inches higher.

I also found out today that you really do have to let the pressure out of your tires after pumping them up for towing. I never got the time or forgot to drop the pressure from my tires when towing the jeep seen above, that was ~44psi at 25 degrees. Well it was 60 degrees today so those tires were rocks and it was one of the most uncomfortable drives with the F150 at 70mph on the highway, it felt like the back of the truck wasn't on the road. Needless to say I had to stop and let over 15psi out of the rear tires.
