Sounds tasty!

I'll be right over.

Should I grab a 6 pack of Moose Drool on my way through Montana?
This beer had been stopped at the Canadian border (Alberta) a long time ago ... I never thought it still existed !

Yep. Still brewed in Missoula, Montana, and distributed, but how far I do not know. I can find it in the better stores in my area. I enjoy it as it has a good flavor, but is not like the pale yellow fizzwater called Bud that seems so popular among those who have issues with consumption control.

Check out Big Sky Brewing - Makers of Moose Drool Brown Ale in Missoula Montana , this is the company that brews Moose Drool. They also have 10 other brews (in bottles), have 5 specialty brews, and distribute 6 of the regular brews in cans (yuk!).

There is a location on the website to find a location near you that Montana's Best Beer can be found. There are 3 distributors in the Mount Rushmore State.

I've tried several of the regular brews, Moose Drool (but of course!), Trout Slayer (a good wheat ale that goes good with fly fishing), Powder Hound (goes great when skiing down your favorite slopes, or during a break from power sledding on your favorite back country trails!), and Summer Honey (another seasonal that is just right on those Dog Days of Summer).

OK, I gotta go now, there is lots of stuff to do this morning. Mrs. Racer has a long Honeydew List, and I need to try and knock a couple things off before Beer Thirty! And there may be some Summer Honey, cheese and Ritz Crackers on the menu about then!

And it helps me resist the Siren Song of the hociR.

I get drunk.
The character of Dr. E. was such that he quit the highballs long before it was acceptable to quit the highballs, yet he carried it off with a smile and some panache and carried on.

And that will suffice on the subject of Dr. E.

Punk Spuds! Good one!
This might interest you, my co. has stopped buying new rigs because of the emission control system issues. Instead they are going keep the older fleet going longer than planned. This might create a real problem for truck makers if this becomes a trend!

The trucking industry as a whole is under crushing burdens these days, would not be happy as an owner/operator.

I don't blame them. Just like the automotive emissions systems development so many years ago, the development in heavy trucks was thrust upon the market by the gov without being fully tested and worked out.

Sort of, let's throw it against the wall and see what sticks kind of mentality.

And the end user winds up footing the bill for a large part of the development costs.

Just think of what happens to the truck makers if all the fleets adopt the idea of extending the use of existing equipment instead of buying new!
Kind of like living in the world of hociR without any bacon!! (note to self: buy more bacon for bunker)

To be sure.

The carrier I ran for used to have a great program for the OO's. Then they realized just how much the husband/wife teams were making, and even how much a solo could earn.

And then they restructured the percentages and other parts of the contracts.

Now the solos are out, and the husband/wife teams that have the Big House trucks can't afford to run them anymore. Rigs like the one in this picture cost about $300,000 to $400,000, (just the tractor, the trailer is extra) and are so heavy that the only loads they can haul are the lightweight aerospace stuff.

And after the carrier cuts into their profits all they can do is sell everything and move on.

In what reality is that not the case?

I live just north of Portland, Oregon and remember well what happened around here when the first wave of emissions rules for over-the-road trucks hit. You see, over in Portland there is this little company called Freightliner (a.k.a. Daimler Truck North America). Orders for new trucks dried up and a lot of people were thrown out of work. Those innovations don't come cheap and fleet managers scrambled to squeeze a few extra miles out of every truck in their stable. It took years for the market to recover and in many ways it still hasn't.

It is a shame that the systems are neither cheap nor are they trouble-free...sort of like cameras in some ways...
