Reflections On…

My Tonneau Cover

After having a sixty gallon auxiliary fuel tank installed in the bed of the truck, I found that the tri-fold tonneau cover, the cover for the bed of the truck, was no longer not well-suited. I couldn’t access the filler nozzle to the auxiliary tank as the tonneau cover above the fuel tank was clamped down. I had to remove the entire cover in order to fill the aux tank.

I bought a different style of bed cover that rolls ...

It’s Not a Bowling Alley But…

A forty foot trailer for a man and a cat is slight overkill. The model that first caught my eye was a miniature version at only thirty-seven feet. <rolls eyes> However, that smaller trailer had axles rated at 5,600 pounds and I felt was maxed out, compared to this model’s 7,000# axles, much beefier if ever considering bouncing my way up the Alaska Highway.

A number of weeks ago I returned to Canada’s Capital – Ottawa – where I lived from age ten to age sixteen. My most gracious host, Ian Wilson, was a good friend from back during those years with whom, like many, we have been able to reconnect with acquaintances from days gone by through Facebook.
