30 seconds and a one way ride
eaving Baltimore tonight, Maryland state troopers decided to give Sally and the trailer we were pulling a D.O.T. inspection. They were thorough as hell. I have three out-of-service failures:

1) two brakes out of adjustment, both on the trailer
2) an air line chafing, on a trailer axle
3) an air service line on the truck cab air bags is leaking

Don was driving so he got the ticket, but I'll be paying the fine ($130). We're sitting here waiting for a service truck to show up and get us moving again. Since two of the three failures were on the trailer, I'm hoping Werner will pick-up the bill for the service call and just bill me for replacing the air line on the truck. I have a feeling though that at some point in the coming weeks I'll be making an irate phone call to get it sorted out.

True... But my county is right on the Maryland border, so there isn't that much of a distance/change in temps. It's more of PA having a lot more roads to take care of than MD. Plus the whole "10 PennDOT workers stand around and tell one guy how to dig" aspect...

I love driving through the PA countryside, too. Just keep me out of the cities. lol
