    The destination doesn't tell you how the road winds

    Great story of life's little "happenings"......as a hippie would put it. Which I'm not. Our trucks are one of those things that take everyone "back in time". When life moved slower and was not of the current "warp speed" look at life. I get to drive the old Dodge trucks almost every day....my new one being a WWII WC-53 that has been updated with diesel power.......BUT! still has the original axles with 4:89 gears. Which still means....I'd get run over on the freeway. So, its still just an "around town" transportation......even though it looks TOUGH!! Everyone always asks.......even my friends....How fast will it go? I always say "as fast as you want it to go.....................as long as its under 60mph". I laugh. I always mention to them......in an analogy. I've been a power boater as well, and we all know there are two types of boaters......Power boaters and Sail boaters. For one....the destination is the important part of the adventure. For the other.....its the journey. Have a blessed day......and keep your powder dry! David
