My brother has been furloughed indefinitely, instead of waiting around he decided to get back into trucking. He'd found the right truck for $6000, only problem was he needed a ride to go pick it up several states away. And he needed to do it on Monday. A little planning proved it could be done, leave for the 634 nm round trip at 7am and I could be back just in time for work at 2:30pm.

Staring at the sun and making good time at 15,500, we picked up the IFR on the descent to pop through a 500' layer and landed 5 minutes early.







First time my brother's been in the front seat of one of these!



I was super impressed with my brother's internet buying skills, he just needed the truck to make it back home where he could make some needed repairs but actually was good enough to put to work as is. We had more than a little fun checking it over.







That's the "I'm gonna buy it, you can head home now grin."

I snagged lunch for the ride home, low and bumpy.





Flew right over Mizzou-Rah on the way home.



Gorgeous Cedar Creek strip just east of Columbia, Mo.



Stopped for $3.00 gas at KVER, restroom and a coke.





Bad decision on the coke, I was wearing part of it and had to force chug it after hitting some nasty turbulence by the front.



I made it back in time to wipe some bugs and make my 2:30 shift on time. I'm almost done with my 8 hour shift and my brother still has 4-5 more hours driving.
