Boy Meets Truck, Boy Leaves Truck, Boy Misses Truck

April 23rd, 2011 by David Stein

“Better to haved loved and lost. . .”.   Well, not lost, but waiting.  We met Go Fish on Monday, spend the morning and headed West, with the promise that the truck would be hot on our heals.  Best layed plans.  It looks like the truck is going to end up delivered to home the same day we return.  I HOPE!!  I’ve been a patient man, but enough is enough.  The good news is that we have had a practically free vacation when all is said and done, seen some great places, eaten some great food, met some good folks and even played some live music with my cousin in the mix.  But I really wish I had the truck under my *^#, rather than the VW rental. Ah well, a few more days and we will be home to meet the truck.  Then it will be a flurry of activity with two health inspections, two fire inspections, the vinyl wrap, training, cooking, soft opening (a tentative date of May 14) and 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, LIFT OFF!!Appropriate as we just left Kennedy Space Center, a lifelong dream.  I wanted to be an astronaut since I was a kid, followed all the Apollo flights, fantasized about being the 1st chef in space. . . Space Truckin!  On to Savannah.
