she says she’s hot 4,000 degrees outside Shh right right okay
we’re over here to Lana you know our last video don’t start
we gotta load it over here and then we rode the bikes from Rome Rome right and
then and now we’re waiting for our next load everybody’s I think even beat look
at it everybody’s gonna think you’ve been beaten that’s where the song is not
real good for you burn it burns you’re even through your stunt you’re
everything burns I don’t have a black eye guy that’s the weird lighting I’m
sorry go ahead we don’t wanna we I just make the other
girl some sauerkraut weenies no you open a can of sauerkraut hi after that I
started I started to only when you started your fork into it to get some we got to go to the store and everything
we’re heading to Minneapolis we’re waiting them alone there we go
Minneapolis and we’re gonna ride we’ll see you along the way
okay go grocery two because we’re out of food we have one package of steaks and
one package of some sausages what do they go bratwurst
yeah sausage that’s it all right so we’ll see you a little bit
I’m gonna tuck the girl in bed you can’t go no can’t go all right
I wouldn’t kiss you Kiki I want your dirty lips sweaty there but anyway see
you in a little bit well this morning at 4 a.m. in the great
city of Atlanta we have a dilemma my engines are 23 feet long apiece so if I
leave a foot between them that’s that’s 46 47 feet of deck space right hips I
can’t hang off that far right that’s overhang but blissfully I have the Grom
here instead of a bigger bike and I set this up to where I could move that there
so now I can overhang the top deck by 4 feet and end up using all of that space whose brilliant baby yes you’re
brilliant all right let’s have a look at this and see what happens all right God
you see we get the bike moved up on the top deck because we got these two
torpedoes here torpedoes is what they remind me of but
they was gonna I was gonna hang off 6 feet or something if I didn’t turn this
around this away I didn’t think they would let me do it but I ended up with 4
inches of clearance between the engine and the deck so I’m good and I still got
my body couldn’t it to leave it girls all dirty it’s 5:00 a.m. we have escapes
from Atlanta and we were headed northbound on 75 here you know it well
what oh I’m sorry I got distracted by the water I was looking around sorry
about that y’all know how I do I squirrel too just
like the girl does I’m 200 miles knocked out still got 964 miles or so to go I
showed you my engines a little bit ago it was a it was a hell I’m tired the
girls tired we we waited 24 hours to load these and you know we got paid
detention and everything so that’s cool what no problem a real good carrier
I mean a shipper to work with but we’re both a little bit didn’t sleep good you
know cuz we were all off we was trying to stay to stay on schedule so I’m gonna
have a short day that she’s gonna have a short day to I’m only gonna knock out
about 400 miles while she sleeps some more and then I’ll let her have it then
I’ll finish it up it still says we’re gonna be there at 5:30 in the morning
but I’m not gonna let that happen so I’m gonna stop by the house and pick up some
stuff that that I ordered since we’re going within 20 miles levar hey why not
right it’s my dime and gonna pick up a ah hell I don’t even know what we’re
picking up I know we’re picking up a new headset the blue tiger sent me I wanted
me to do a review on so that’ll be coming out soon but my intentions are I
don’t think I’ll have a quick load out of Minneapolis I think that I’ll have to
wait a day and you know what I’m gonna do I’m gonna unload the bikes if the
weather is good because why not right you can do it do it but I thought you
might want to drive up now an eagle with me here I’ll either have to pass
everybody or let them just go I know this tanker over here’s got to be heavy
beside me I might as well just go ahead and romp on it a little bit get past
prime up there and land star guy this is the rock I’ll be leaving you guys today
and I’ll go ahead and tell you where I’m gonna leave it at I’m gonna leave it at
the petrol in Effingham I gotta get fuel somewhere right might as well get fuel
in Effingham and leave you a rock so I hope you guys seen the rock there that
the girl works so diligently on painting for you guys you guys ever notice what
I’m tired I sound like like they just dug me out of the other a corn corn crib
somewhere in the country my words get all mushed up even worse than normal and
but I am tired coffee ain’t kicked in although I’ve had four cups and I’m not
gonna have any more sometimes you just got to put it down
and go to bed we had a really good time riding in downtown Atlanta except for
Adam the homeless problem down there is terrible and my audio wasn’t so great on
that video and that’s okay but it was sad because downtown Atlanta is a
beautiful beautiful area to to ride your motorcycle in if you didn’t have to
worry about the homeless trying to you know get you some money out of you it
was just a sad sad place but there were some nice things to see if you get a
chance to get out get out on downtown Atlanta maybe on a snow-covered day you
should go for it not that you have very maybe maybe take that back maybe you
shouldn’t do it in Atlanta on a snow-covered day because you don’t get
any snow in Atlanta and they can’t handle it and homeless will be laying on
the on the heater the vents you know coming up out of the ground so maybe
that’s not the best idea either sorry scratch that okay I remember what I was gonna talk to
you guys about when I was driving up here is a I feel all my Mountain Eagle
you’ve got a place called Rock City and Ruby saws I came over here when I was
like 13 with my parent parents right it was the worst and only family vacation
we ever had worst because we were always broken so we had to pack around bologna
sandwiches which is okay I perfectly loved bologna sandwiches but it was
still uncomfortable to me because it was always poor right but what I liked about
it was we lived a couple hundred miles from here
and it wasn’t a really far drive and I got to see these mountains you know you
when you you lived it somewhere you don’t have mountains and you get to see
mountains it’s really amazing to you my goodness I wonder if that was the
beginning of my trucking career oh crap maybe you shouldn’t bring your kids down
here but anyway it is spectacular for a kid it’s I’m sure it’s not that much fun
on for a parent I never actually brought my kids down here and I feel bad about
that I did take them to the Smokies and you know stuff like that but we just I
don’t know why we never came up came down here wait a minute we did come
down here one time we just didn’t get to see anything because everything was
closed oh well I tried I was a terrible parent in that way I I didn’t take
family vacations or do that kind of stuff I just was always too busy working
and of course I was at home a lot in the wintertime so I had to hit it and get it
in the summer right you know how it is I mean we still had a great time we went
sledding all the time and you know I’m just all kinds of stuff like that we
swam constantly so I felt like I missed out but I still never brung them down
here and we got to view Rock City I think I’ll rectify that with my
grandkids and bring them down here and it won’t be the same but you know you
know you know I mean it’ll be alright anyway this is a beautiful part of the
country that you live within a couple hundred miles hit from here and you got
people take vacations now when I was a kid people didn’t take vacations at
least not where I came from but now it’s like everybody goes on vacation I’m like
where’d they get the money for that that doesn’t been on vacation three times
this year and they got two new iPhones and and everything else and but they’re
still broke so that’s a whole different discussion but stay away from the pilot
on top of Mount Eagle you know if you seem like week before lastest video
about the assault on pilot at the pilot up here it’s just a big old fubar if you
don’t know what fubar means look it up because it’s not good the place is a
mess oh hang on now I gotta pay attention while I’m going around these
flat batters they’re heavy my engines only weigh a total of
fourteen thousand pounds back there so I’m like feather-light no I’m getting
that awesome fuel mileage right I ain’t even switching no gears going up mounted
Eagles had a song about my legal I think this Johnny Cash something about a
trucker crash I don’t know I never Johnny Cash was a hit or miss singer in
my opinion some of his stuff was spectacular and some of it wasn’t very
spectacular I wonder if it was the drug-induced stuff that was really good
I don’t know drugs do seem to facilitate a person’s artistic side until he burned
out and I guess hey that happens the girls still back there snoozing I
had before I put her to bed I had to stop and get her some food I could have
cooked or something but I was just too tired to stand around cooking and I
didn’t expect her to stand around cooking me anything either when we could
be rolling hellward we’re out of everything we go I think one meal left
in the freezer and nothing in the refrigerator we just ain’t had time to
go but we’ll probably be stopping at Walmart sometime tonight to replenish
hey yeah why not since I’m going by the house here about 4 or 5 o’clock in the
afternoon I might as well stop at Walmart at the house to spend my money
up there I know they want it they always wanted some days money blessed Sam
Walton’s heart whoever came after him Sam Walton clan but anyway this is Mount
Eagle we all get to see it it was the first mountain I came down and since I
didn’t have any schooling or anything and had a truck drive and I didn’t have
any Jake bricks in my first truck when I got down to the down on the downside of
mountain Eagle I was I was I was peeing on my brakes they were smoking yep I
sure was I was right out there laying on the ground peanut my brakes it was a
scary experience after that I had to I had to figure out everything but hey I
was back in the day right all you fellas been school trained and y’all
professionals and y’all know how to do it all I applaud you yay you know I’m
saying I ain’t being sarcastic or anything I’m I think I think school is
great it was really scary coming into this industry knowing nothing I mean not
anything about nothing just listening just listening on Liars corner at the TA
and and seeing what people said and didn’t try and what they were talking
about cuz you know I wasn’t that guy to ask questions I just figured it as I
went that made for a lifetime of learning
experiences though it’s been a hard-knock life at the petrol
in Effingham Illinois and I’m I’m gonna oh can you see that I’m gonna ride this little beauty right
here so I’m not the way in the back corner because the front was too busy to
get out and find of his spud pipe so let’s see where we can go all right
man look at her she don’t know I’m filming her she’s talking she’s talking
to you guys focus focus you see funny okay I found a hiding spot guys see the
rock there is a what is that an 18 teen maybe a phone thing on the other side of
the fence that you can see there and there’s where I’m part what’s he
doing is he and they’re recording – oh and watch out there’s this metal post
sticking up for some reason I just about walked into it but there’s a petrol they
didn’t flash in real life but it sure does on the film doesn’t it here it is
from a distance there’s a petrol sign there’s the fence and there is a little
phone wire thing or whatever that’s called find the route
