    You lied????

    Yeah, about that...

    Started out I was going to be driving my supervisors company truck, then he realized that both of us (the guy I am going to IA with) smoke and started getting cranky about it.

    I told him first off I respect the fact that he is a non smoker, and that I am one who keeps the fan on high and the window cracked so 99% of the smoke goes outside, and I have a bottle of Fabreeze at home when I get back.

    "My truck is going to stink, and I will have to take it to get it steam cleaned"

    "Your not letting us smoke on the drive is going to turn a 12 hour drive into 18."

    "Smoke in my truck and John gets a new service truck before you." My truck is a POS 98 Chev 3500 with a 6.5 diesel with 180k miles, the oldest in the fleet, and the service body is coming apart - welded back together twice

    "Do we need to start talking about a hostile work environment, and the fact that there is no policy in place about tobacco use?"

    "Tell you what, here is my fuel card, take your truck and I'll pay the fuel."

    "You going to cover a service (oil change ect) and any damage or repairs that occur?"

    "We'll cross that bridge when we come to it."

    So... I am taking my truck. Just as well, 4wd, and I don't have to deal with installing the satellite radio in the bosses truck for the trip. I'll pad my hours to cover the service I did today.

    I'd spend the bucks for my own room, or talk to the other person about splitting the cost of another room to give you both a private room.

    Well, first of let me say that my arse still hurts. 10.5 hours & 702 miles, 1 stop for fuel.

    Staying at the Best Western, good room, free breakfast and 2 free drinks in the lounge in the evenings.

    Rain this morning, turned into 2" snowflakes by noon, then light snow and wind by 4. Made the roads a nice fun little ice skating rink.

    Today in class, in the training shop area, some dummy set off a firecracker.

    I flinched, stepped back and sideways behind some equipment and reached for my baby, that was not where it should have been. I also noticed that two others had subconsciously grabbed their hips, and the instructor that also flinched a bit said "I've got a .357 if you want to see what is louder." Interesting afternoon in all.

    There are guys from all over the country here for this class.

    Not looking forward to the drive home at all.

    Stay armed...stay safe!
    I agree. I'm pretty sure, it's just 724.4 3 f that says:
    f. A person who for any lawful purpose carries or transports an unloaded pistol or revolver in a vehicle inside a closed and fastened container or securely wrapped package which is too large to be concealed on the person or inside a cargo or luggage compartment where the pistol or revolver will not be readily accessible to any person riding in the vehicle or common carrier.
    If you're traveling in from out of state, this only takes effect at the border.
