11/18 Ode to Sam and His Royal Fifth Wheel Drivin' Badarsness

On the road yesterday from Albuquerque to Amarillo, Sam really began to strut his stuff while driving Monty. Let's just say that it has been fairly, uh, gusty, while driving through the Texas Panhandle. Like so breezy that when we stopped for a quick Veggie Delight with Avocado! (tm) at Subway, I couldn't shut my car door without rolling down the window first. I'm pretty sure Sam's gonna come back from this trip looking like he's all 'roided up like Hulk Hogan or something. It's hard work pullin' this rig in the wind.
Also worth mentioning was the smooth move yesterday when Sam manuvered Larry and Monty nonchalantly into a tight diesel spot-- like he was driving a Mini Cooper or something.
I'm sure there will be more to come, and let's keep prayin' that I don't take the wheel!

  1. As in "Juliette the 6th Wheel", you're correct to remain the navigator throughout these endeavors. If a small driver is needed, contact Carol Fossee. She's the giant among BOOKMOBILE drivers, and perhaps could give "How to Drive a Rig" lessons.
