  1. The liability would be enough to leave it for the cops and the tow trucks.
    as to your accident there on the old 395 off the five... i can easily understand that happening. I've driven over 3,000,000 miles. believe me... that kind of crap can happen

    -- I went UP to Vista to visit Beulah @ the facility where she's being "resurrected" -- on the way UP I got to help a littl gal who was OOG in the CD

    and a coupla fellas who had a FT on the RS --



    BOTH of these situations required that I "go around" and come back to assist as I was pullin my trailer to bring unused parts of Beulah [ doors, tailgate, and several radiators bACK for storage here instead of takin up space in Rick's way :) [ can't make sudden manuvers W the trailer that I might w-out it ;)

    anyways

    a fun day -- and Beulah's headin TO the paint shop :)

    Yesterday --

    EVENTfull day on the highways toDAY -- a crash ON the bridge,




    a crash in the park,


    AND - -a crash RIGHT where Beulah was killed in 2011!!!



    one young fella low on tranny fluid and, right in front of him, a littl gal low on coolant -- gottum both underway :)

    BEST thing -- NO one hurt in ANY ofem!

    LOTSA damage tho

    and the bridge was tied up w traffic for QUITE some time -- killed some time sittin, havin a rootbeer float downtown Coronado chattin w folks -- met some NICE folks made some NEW friends :)

    Then, on leavin, sittin @ the intersection of Orange and the street that becomes the bridge entry point, some idiot in a white BMW SUV put his front bumper right UP to my rear LR as he attempted to change lanes INto behind me -- he sat there as I asked him to maintain a greater distance [ "this is NOT a dogpark" ] and when we moved forward, he AGIN placed his "nose" nearly aGAINST my rear -- i then TOLD him to " KEEP A DISTANCE!" -- at the bridge approach, he nearly collided with me in attempting to PASS me as the left lane he was in ran out - that GOT me MAD so I YELLED at the STUPID IDIOT!!!

    I think his passenger might have had something to SAY to him ;) as, when we were crossing the bridge, he seemed to have calmed down [ you kin see him passing by on my right as we near the San Diego side of the bridge ]

    I NEED 360 degree cam coverage as none of what went on behind & beSIDE me is captured -- WORKIN on *that* ;)

    vids of today's doins are downloadin and will be posted by tomorrow

    I just wanted to let everyone how blessed I felt that hot morning that I ran out of gas on the 163 north. I had to go to court that morning my sons father was evicting me from the home, I had been on disability for 3 months from my job with a back injury but hadn't received a check, I had no money but couldn't miss court downtown. So I just tried to make it from chula vista. I made it there but on the way back was a different story. I was stuck on the side of the freeway no phone, no water very hot no money! I didn't know what to do. I just thought I would sit there forever. I really felt hopeless. Then I looked in my rearview mirror and saw ghostbusters! I thought I was seeing things. Then there was a man at the passenger door asking if he could help. I told him I was out of gas and he said that's no problem I can help you and before I knew it he was back with gas I was overwhelmed I gave him a big hug and he said that was worth it. He gave me his cards jumped in his car and was on his way. I got in my car in tears overcome by his kindness on this horrible day. I looked at his card and couldn't believe it since then I have told everyone I meet about the highway man some know of him. Others can't believe he exists. To you mr. Highway man I say this : not too long after I was running errands , I passed by several timesduring the day and noticed an old car with its hood up in the parking lot, after the third time I pulled in and approached the car. A young man shaved head covered in tatoos kinda scruffy looking was under the hood. I inquired about his troubles he said he had been there all day he needed a part he had to wait for his friend to get off work to get a ride to the parts store. Being a woman alone my options in helping him were limited. I opened my wallet took out a twenty and your card and gave them to the man, I told him I can't help much but maybe this will help he wanted my address to send the money back but I just waved wished him good luck and went on my way! Love ya highway man!

    More good coverage , well deserved , Tom. Can't wait to see the big bacon-eatin' grin on your face when Beulah comes home.
    One question though - who was mindin' the highway while you were at the show ?? Just kidding of course , even God took a day off ...

    I have faith Bruce thankee - gits dimmed sometimes -- but I never gave up on her believin she'd be brought back to life -- someday --
    That she IS, in time to be WITH me in finishin up my 50 year career of helpin others -- is aMAZIN
    just couldn't DO it myself it was beyond my capabilities:( --

    THANKS to those MANY members here who contributed, supported, and cheered my "mission" -- I've been able to "keep on keepin on" [ it's not easy finanacially ]

    and ESPEACIALY -- thankee to several individuals here, and others elsewhere, who went ABOVE and BEYOND in their contributions of time and expertise to keep me On the Road in the meantime, and help make this happen.:cool:

    latest info from the angel who'se responsible for Beulah's "REbirth" is that she will be HOME beFORE the Forth of July! :D

    To those [ very few ] who had negative things to say, and cast innuendos bout meo_O

    I will ONLY say *this* 16573_629536990399593_27166758_n.jpg

    I forgive you

    You Bet Bruce! :D

    she likely won't be "operational" fer a while as I'll haveta REoutfit her w gear and of course she'll haveta have some "shakedown" cruise time to git the feel of her and learn any idiocyrincies [sp] she might have from all the work that was done --

    She'll be lighter then she was before, as many things I'd carried for years -- spare parts and such -- I won't be carryin any more - -I no longer "fix" breakdowns beside the road

    It's give em gas, water, change tires [ & maybe provide some ] various other "keep em safe" adventures

    Usta be, I'd FIX em --

    Glad to see the thread is back open. The HAMB certainly needs a dose of your spirit once in a while. At least you're using an old car for your life's mission , and it's an honorable one. Some people could learn a lot from that.

    Keep the updates coming.
     
  28. Looking Gooooooooood! :)
