I forgive you. Heck, I'll even forgive the service plaza employees that called the Ohio State Police. The policeman who paid me a visit was a good guy. I had to prove to him I wasn't a vagrant, had a plan to be on my way and could cope with the weather conditions. He even said if I need help to call the Ohio State police. I think he meant by help if I was freezing or starving they would intervene but it was left unspecified. I guess sleeping in the back of a 1982 pickup in the winter at my age is not normal behavior.
Not only was I being thrifty I could sleep when I needed to and move on whenever I wanted. Made sense to me. I could (can) deal with the cold, it is certain people that where my problem.
I haven't been very active on the forum lately myself. After 9 months of being unemployed I put my nose to the grindstone, with the exception to my whirlwind trip to Washington State for my LUV
. Next time I breakdown in Ohio, I'll give you a call. Please PM me you phone and I will keep it in my cell, just in case.
