We had an interesting day in Vegas yesterday. I was sitting in the truck, working on some paperwork and looked out the window. When I did, I seen 2 Police Officers, taking pictures of the truck. I thought, uh oh. I got out of the truck and started talking to them only to find out that they loved the truck, the mission, and the design on the truck. We talked for a few minutes while they got some pictures, I asked them if they cared to sign the truck and they did. I also got some pictures of them during the signing and asked if it would be alright to post them and they said it would be okay. Later in the day though, one of the officers called me and asked if I would forgo publishing the pictures to the site, though they support our mission and everything we are doing, they shouldn't have their picture posted online unless in an official capacity. I chose to comply with the request and NOT post their photos. I do, however,
cherish their support and the photos I have will be prominently displayed in my office at the house. I thank them for their work and their service to our country.
We finally left Las Vegas about 073- this morning. The load was about 4 1/2 hours late. That really is about normal for this facility though. They are very busy here but running the warehouse on a shoestring budget to keep costs in line. This is really a very conservative company. They pay as they go. An all cash company. I like that about them, no debt means no money woes in most cases, and if they have no money woes, that means they can keep paying me and I have no money woes either.
Anyway, we traveled down 93 to 95 and 163 to 68 and back over to 93 as to bypass Hoover Dam. From there we went south to I-40 and are now very close to Albuquerque NM on I-40. We plan on one stop between here Vegas and Columbus OH for fuel. We hope to make it to Tucumcari NM for that stop.
We should be in Tucumcari by about 2030 this evening and then in Columbus OH at approximately 1900 on Wednesday evening.
In God I Trust
Have a Great Day and a Better Tomorrow
