    Gas prices

    This was what it took to fill my truck up at a truck stop in MD on the 9th. We get updates about fuel shortages on our tablets and this particular truck stop runs out of fuel sometimes twice a week. There have also been some truck stops in VA that have ran out of fuel multiple times in the past...

    Is FREEDOM being strangled one generation at a time?

    So back in the mid 80's I used to walk to and from school which was about 6-7 blocks each way. This was for kindergarten to second grade. I would sometimes walk with other kids my age too. Usually after school was done, I would walk into town by myself to go to the deli my aunt worked at. By the...

    Internet Speeds: What do you have?

    Depends what device I speed test at. The TV computer is 280/28 and the BI server is 945/42. My phone speed test is 360/40. I'm paying $79.99 for 1200Mbps with a 1.2TB limit.

    Cable modem question

    Well, the cable modem took a poop and I am looking for a new option. No more Netgear equipment. I am currently looking into three options which are the Arris SB8200, Motorola MB8611 and Arris S33. What does everybody think of these three options? Oh, for internet I have the Xfinity 400Mbps plan...

    Wrong Map Navigation

    In my defense, it not exactly easy to see signage coming up especially if your in a new area. I happen to like the truck specific Rand McNally gps. Before you finally accept the route, it shows you your destination with a map code which corresponds to a specific page in the laminated and spiral...

    Wrong Map Navigation

    I started driving a straight truck 14 years ago at the company I'm still at. I was in the Bronx, kinda lost trying to figure out what road I needed to take as I'm looking at the non truck gps when I look in the mirror and see what looked like snow. It turned out I missed the sign that said 10'6"...

    My Dream Life

    That's a perfectly acceptable distance from the statue of liberty. That area from about the Verrazano bridge past the statue and north up the Hudson river is a visual flight rules scenic flyway at I think 1200' and 1500' AGL with the appropriate approval from ATC. And you can't land in just any...

    Cable modem question

    I had a one that looked just like that one made by Motorola I think. It lasted about six months before it started giving me issues. Wound up taking it out back and shooting it. Now a piece of it is on my shelf as a reminder to all my other electronics that if they act up, they too will be taken...
