    A nice tribute. Captain Phil was awesome.

  • Gearjammer,

    When you are good, you are incredibly good.

    Stay on this road and you'll have a legion of happy right seat readers.

    --By the way, do you have any Owner/Operator buddies who would like to place an idle big rig with a first class, 20 year-veteran driver.

    Fellow born, raised and worked on the farm until he was 31 -- Shy his H.S. diploma by two years, but got a GED. Went driving big rigs and operating heavy equipment for a contractor -- then got his federal CDL and started X-Country.

    Has an Owner/Operator contract at $1.10 with 6500 miles monthly guaranteed, waiting, and wants to contract a lease purchase for a strong, late model tractor, sleeper cab and a 53' dry van.

    He's as good a man as I've met, lives by his word, meets his responsibilities, lives a strong faith and has a laugh to recharge a cynic's soul.

    Hank - the next time I am in home, maybe we can visit. I may have some ideas. I will ask the Gazette to forward my email address to you.

    Hubby and I are going to miss Captain Phil. Our favorite is Sig Hansen and his brother Edgar on the Northwestern. All those guys are super. Thanks for the nice words for Captain Phil. He was a raw dog, and that's why we liked him.

    Thank you.
