Some of you know that I work as a truck driver and get paid to run around the country avoiding bad drivers, and, sometimes I get to go to a CW concert.  I have been able to meet about 15 members of this forum, so far, and they are all great folks.  I have talked to a few more on the phone and hope to meet them, too.  I work out of Portland, Oregon, and mostly drive in the western states, but have talked my dispatcher into letting me run east for a while.  So far, I have only made it as far east as Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas.  I am hoping to make it to the east coast soon.  I called 2BOB when I was in Tulsa, but missed him (he SAID he was working - hmmm.....).  Anyway, the purpose of this topic is to tell you that I would like to meet more of you - if I come to your town and have time - and we could talk about Celtic Woman over lunch or dinner, if you would like, and have the time.   In the last few weeks, I have been to Seattle/Tacoma, Boise, Salt Lake City, Pasco (WA.), Albuquerque, Orla (TX.), Laredo, San Antonio, Waco, Dallas/Fort Worth, Tulsa, Wichita, Denver, Amarillo, DFW (again) and Houston, where I am now (actually Baytown).  Tomorrow, I get to go back to Laredo, again. (Lucky me!)(#!*#!*!#)  I know it won't be long before I get to Phoenix (our main HQ) and back to California, again.

So, anyway, if you are interested, send me a pm or post here and tell me where you are, and if I get close, I will let you know when and where I will be (as best I can) - I can't get online as often as I would like and sometimes just don't have time for anything but work.  I have made some good friends on this forum and would like to meet each of you in person, too.  Thank you.

Jim  -   if you get to Ca. I would love to meet you.  I need to put a face to my friend.  If you make it to the Riverside area, Temecula, Hemet, Lake Elsinore, Corona,  sometime let me know and we can chat.

Yes, Jim, my company's HQ is in PHX, but I work out of the Portland terminal.  I met Dwight at the LA show and hope to meet you one of these days when I get to PHX.  Thanks!

Folks I've met Jim and we shared a concert together in Bakersfield. He's a great guy and you'd have a great conversation with him. He's as avid a fan of the ensemble and the artists within it as any. Keep on truckin' Jim and drive safely.

If your truck has Sheppard power steering, stop by when you're in Pennsylvania and I'll be happy to give you a plant tour.

By "the city", do you mean San Francisco?  I get to the Bay Area quite often, usually the East Bay or San Jose/Santa Clara area - sometimes Salinas, too.  Thanks!!

I was in Iowa in January and will probably get there again one of these days - I-80 is a main route from the Chicago area to the west.  What part of Iowa are you in?  Thanks!!

I drive a Volvo (for now) and it looks to be a Volvo power steering unit with maybe a German fluid tank.  What part of PA are you in?  I've been to Hershey (for choc. bars) before and to Pittsburgh a few times - and across the state when I went to NJ once, and from south to north and north to south a few times.  Thanks!!
