If that scares you, you should drive a BMW with adaptive cruise control. It controls the throttle & brakes. It'll slow with traffic from full speed to a complete stop, and back to full speed. And it will stop fast if necessary. It has radar to measure the speed of the cars in front of you.

It's a truckers best friend when doing 11 hours or more.


Quick question for Gary and Michael, do we have wolf spiders up here? Some massive spider that looked like a wolf spider crawled on my dad's *** when it was trying to escape a rifle butt from a shotgun.

I mean this thing was ginormous. Put it in the palm of your hand, it would hang over the sides. It was gray, hairy, and was pissed off.

I don't know, but it started coming at my friend who was poking it. It came out from under the entertainment center after it escaped me, it charged at him. **** was funny as hell, it came out from under there twice as tall than when it went under there. Then as it started coming close to him, the front legs go up and you could see the fangs moving.


My dad comes along all nonchalant and kills it with a fly swatter right then and there.

Sounds like you passed him off. Lol.

How hot is it down there at your place? We were baking up here. It didn't help that I had to BBQ hot dogs and hamburgers for 60 people. Lol

Danny and I went to bravo burger by Costco for breakfast. On the way back home my carrier bearing on my driveshaft came apart. If I tried giving it any throttle the truck would vibrate like a paint shaker. . I was a few blocks from Dodge so I just put my flashers on and idled my way to the dealer. It was to hot to do anything else. I laid down on the asphalt for a second to see what was wrong and I started to sizzle. That should be around $400.00 . Thought about towing it home and fixing it myself but a tow would've cost at least a $100.00 and the part was going to be $170.00 at Napa. Figured the $130.00 or so difference was worth letting the dealer deal with it and not having to lay on the ground and baking heat. :?

I'm just glad it happened now and not next week on the road pulling my fifth wheel.
