    Default I don't know if I can make it through the summer.

    The temp got up to 85 today and it felt like it was 105. I'm truly worried that I won't last the summer.

    The temp will get up into the 100's here in Idaho and if it does that then I'm done for. This body of mine does not like the hot weather and it seems to like it less and less as each year passes.

    We hit 80 yesterday. I felt like s pig roasting on a fire. Fortunately my work truck finally has air conditioning, but jeez.

    I remember when I was a kid in California, I would play ball in 105 degree heat and just soak my self with the hose between games. Now it gets to 80 and I start to sweat like Richard Simmons.

    I think the Pacific Northwest warps you. I can wear shorts and a T-shirt in the snow, but I can't do 80 Degree heat.

    Here its not the temperature that sucks so much. Its the high humidity. 90 degrees and 90 percent humidity isn't much fun.

    Same here in DFW, although we have wins of over 20mph which helps some. A friend of mine was in West Texas and said it was 107 in Turkey, Tx ( home of Bob Wills ) although he might have been drinking 107 proof Wild Turkey and got confused!

    I feel the same way. Everyday it gets worse and when you factor in heat index over 100 it's just not going to be worth it. Everyday I care less and less. Im a time bomb ticking. I just only hope no one gets hurt

    Dont fight the tape - Forrest Gump - Running on Empty - YouTube

    I am on the rockin chair until May 29 th awaiting my next run OTR school starts 0800-1600 and 1830-2130 for 8 weeks like boot camp all over again... then the road work for the experience for awhile...

    Where U @ Steve ol buddy !? its like that itch of joining the service years ago but this is otr trucking that rush of the new unknown journey- less physically demanding but a challenge of survival and then throttle back into a regional gig...you cant keep hiking the by-ways @mid 50s to 60s... so come on " try some -take a hit"... Times running out you know... Bring the dogs too...

    Keeping your love alive is living lifes experiences and journeys before the clock stops....

    hee, hee, hee

    dont you want the cablevine crowd to say "what are we going to do now" !? like they did to Hanks ?

    Thanks for the sentiments.

    You bring up another problem. Working as much as I do during the summer means I really have no summer and they fly by too fast.

    If spray can do it, anyone can? I'm sure that was an honest compliment but I hope no one ever says that about me.
