While we were in Denver Co last week and had a pretty big response to the truck. We were parked over at the Flying J Travel Plaza on Airport and had a parking place where everyone that came in and or went out through the fuel island or walking to the restaurant from the parking lot seen the truck. I pulled in the parking place as to show the rear of the truck where the "Bring Home The Politicians" logo is prominently displayed.
While we were sitting, at one point, I looked out the window of the truck and there was a group of about five folks gathered looking at and reading the truck and discussing the message('s) on the truck.
We got loaded at about 2300 Tuesday night and headed for Los Angeles CA. I had to go back out to the Flying J Travel Plaza for fuel before we could take off and while I was there another fellow came over and was reading the messages from the side of the truck. I asked him, Charlie, if he liked the message and his words were, "ain't no way to disagree with that, there ain't nothing wrong with that at all."
I asked Charlie if since he liked and agreed with the message on the truck if he wanted to sign it and he was obliged to proudly profess his support of the 9/12 Project and the messages on the 9/12 Truck with his signature.
From there we headed to LAX traveling West on I-70 then south on I-15. We arrived at our terminal at about 1900 on Wednesday evening and went to bed for a good nights sleep. We were there all day on the 29th and we were given a dispatch to Columbus OH for the wee hours of the morning on the 30th.
We were awakened about 0930 on the 30 and advised that the Columbus load had canceled and that they, dispatch, would be in touch shortly. At 1400 we took a call and we were asked to run an emergency load to San Diego and from there we could have a dispatch to Atlanta GA that evening. Begrudgingly, we accepted the assignment and off to San Diego we headed.
I just despise running up or down the California coast. Partly because the traffic ALWAYS sucks and partly because the more miles you run in California the more likely you are to be accosted by a California CMV enforcement officer looking to bail his state out of debt by landing the 1 lucky inspection of the most unsuspecting driver in the state, but I digress.
As usual we did hit traffic due to a broke down automobile on a tow truck at the side of the road. A full hour delay because these nosy folks had to know every detail, about the tow truck, I guess. Who really knows what goes through the heads of rubberneckers.
As we made our way on to San Diego, our terminal is near the football stadium, we jumped off the freeway at Friars Rd. While we were sitting at the light, at the end of the ramp, waiting to make the left turn onto Friars Rd a car came up beside us and was reading the truck, we get that a lot, and he made the trip to San Diego worth all the grief getting there with a thumbs up sign to report his support of the 9/12 Project and the message. Note to self...even in California, God will provide the strength and drive to move forward even when you least expect the encouragement.
We ran from San Diego to Atlanta, then back to Dallas TX and today, here we are back in Denver CO. While sitting here, parked in approximately the same place we were parked last week, again, the interest in the truck and the message thereon has been amazing. Some folks will talk and others just want to read quietly and leave. Here are a couple of amazing Patriots, Lean and Jake who both are drivers with MBM Corporation, and who chose to talk, and sign the truck to show their support of the 9/12 project.
From here tonight we are supposed to go back to Dallas. We will be traveling back down U.S.287. We should be back in Dallas on Thursday morning and we'll just have to wait and see what happens from there. I can only hope that the oppressive heat has subsided a bit. It was actually 108 Degrees here yesterday...in a shaded area.
