random stuff

esterday was a milestone in my journal; it was my 1,000th entry. I had meant to pay more attention and do something special for it, but I guess that's come and gone. Oh well, here's to 1,000 more.

fter some hard driving the past 36 hours, we dropped our trailer in Blaine, Washington on the Canadian border and are now heading for Everett, WA to pick up our new load. We have to have it in Fullerton, California by tomorrow night. Between the two loads, that's 3,000 miles in three days. Considering I'm planning on being home by Saturday, that's going to work out to about 6,000 miles for the week. HELL YEAH!

he truck's been running awesome since I began putting the upper cylinder lube/cleaner in the tanks with every fueling. It's expensive though, at around $11 per treatment. The upside though is that I'm seeing as much as a 0.5 to 1.5 mile per gallon increase in fuel economy. This doesn't sound like much until you consider that a truck gets single digit MPG. That's like, a 17% increase in fuel efficiency. It more than pays for itself with diesel at $3/gallon.

received a comment today on my Tatham Springs entry from someone outside LiveJournal. They informed me at one point that they had been directed to the entry by someone at the Washington County Historical Society. Sweet. I still need to get around to posting an entry about the day welfy and I went out there to survey the remains after the fire.

ore gams! This just never gets old. Submitted for your approval, the stunning rejectcarp.
