Seeing as they know each other we thought we’d make Darkstaff follow DriverChrisMc.

Of his first View he says, ‘this here is a sunrise heading east on US 322 in Happy Valley/State College, Pennsylvania. Home of Penn State University’…

…’Here I am waiting my turn to go down Seven Mountains Hill. Nice 3.5 mile 8% descent, which I have to do 6 days a week in an old Mack with no engine brake.  Needless to say, the brakes get a little “soft” at the end’…

…’There’s a storm a brewin’! I’m headed north on I-81 just south of Carlisle, Pennsylvania and trying to get back to the yard before it rains! ( Which I did. )’…

…’Finally this week, here is a shot of the yard that I run out of. It’s an old terminated oil yard. The tanks are gone, as are the racks. We have an office in the old building you see here, and four of our five trucks are parked. The one I drive daily right now is the old Mack on the far right’.

Well it still isn’t open so I am still having to go over the Saddle Road when going from Wellington to Hawke’s Bay’…
