Alright, so if DA hasn't already told you people, today is my birthday, and my 18th at that. It also means it's a Monday. My plan for today was go to school, coast through like always, then race to the local DMV to take the Written/Knowledge CDL test for my state so I can get a CLP (Commercial Learners Permit). Unfortunately the DMV is closed on Monday. Why is the DMV closed on a friggin Monday, as opposed to Saturday? What makes it worse is now I have to wait until Monday to take the test because I'm going on a long field trip tomorrow that doesn't get back until late that night.

I was playing ATS MP last night with some guys from the VTC I'm in, and we have the Verizon Home Fusion thingy that runs off of the Phone Data. Anyway, we get 15gb of 4g and it's 3g for the rest of the month, and I was playing ATS MP last night on the 4G and my ping was unnecessarily high (roughly 650 ms) until it rolled over to 3g, at which point my ping dropped to an average of 140 ms. Something smells fishy here...
So I think I finally found something I can do on DeviantArt without an overly complicated posting process. And it's still something I love. And that thing is...

*Drum roll*

*Cymbal crash*

Drawing semi trucks! I've already drawn what mostly resembles my truck in ATS, and I'm working on a 1987 Marmon 57L with a 60 inch flattop sleeper. Oh boy. I need some colored pencils.
The FireStar Special
This is my first actual attempt at drawing a truck not for a paint design, but for looks. This is in essence how my personal rig in ATS looks, minus the 2000R Reefer. I still need a skin for that. Burt anyway, this was a seat-of-the-pants 20-30 minute sketch. That's really all I have to say though, enjoy.

(Yes, I know the cab is off.)
I was sitting at my computer the other day, drooling at trucks and hauling virtual freight, when something occurred to me. What if I didn't make it? What if, no matter how hard I tried, I would never catch it? Then my brain offered up some words of advice.

Dreams are like rainbows, you can chase them all you want, but you will never catch it. You have to build it yourself..

That is all.

Just a guy who loves semi trucks, particularly old ones. I like to write stories and not finish them (for some reason). I also like to share pictures of my trucks in American Truck Simulator and Euro Truck Simulator 2. I intend to get my Class A CDL in the fall and hauling grain for my uncle. y favorite truck brand is Peterbilt, my favorite engine brand Caterpillar, and my favorite transmission brand is Eaton. I can get a little philosophical at times, and I make a damn good friend when you get to know me.

Opinions aren't facts and facts aren't opinions.
Just because you don't like a song, or a book, or a movie or show, or vehicle that someone likes doesn't make it stupid. That just makes you stupid.
I don't care what you believe in, a person is a person and they should be judged by their character, not the way they look or what they believe in.
