    Hello,

    I'm a 75 year old avid blue (back) road traveler who drives a 2013 bone stock 4Runner with 140K trouble free miles. I'm here to learn and share. Why do I drive a 4Runner? Because I sometimes just make a turn onto a road in the middle of nowhere just to find out where it leads.

    Safe travels!

    Bill

    Welcome! My Wandering has gotten me in to some great times, and a few pickles. Here in Fla the trails are disappearing fast and I was once locked in a lumber tract for a few hours trying to find new trails. I was very respectful and luckily they didn't press any charges. A few years ago I realized I was on Reservation Land in AZ after the fact. That could have been ugly. Be careful where you tread and do it lightly lol. Have Fun! P.S. edit: Thank You for Your Service!

    I just saw on the news that Maryland is the richest state. Have worked all over it in the inner city of Baltimore and the outskirts of DC. I really enjoyed being there and I have to get there every year to fish..
    Thankyou Troops!!

    Although I worked over 40 hours never got over-time and they paid me a little more than minimum wage. Cheap bastards!!!

    My firm regularly sends surveyors to Baltimore to do construction layout. We always send at least two people! I grew up there and avoid it as much as I can. It’s a shame what’s happened to my hometown.

    It was nice nobody messed with us. I loved every minute there. I was in the North-Pit after the Howard St tunnel train wreck/fire. We had to connect a temporary fiber line it was international. After testing/spicing throughout the city I took my final pictures with the OTDR at PSI net stadium.

    Pretty dangerous too. Your fiber runs in the same holes as the main power lines underground. I wasnt jumping into a hole without rubber boots on.
