Crunchbang Truckers

welcome to the Crunchbang Truckers thread.

got a truck?  (or something that you could stretch to calling a truck?)

if yes, then akin to having a cat making you be right for the crunchbang cat club, having a truck means you're in the right place here.  wink

share pics; share stories; share your trials and tribulations; share whatever geeky plans you might have for it, if any, or just share in the joy of trucking.



{i'll be back with my own story, and plans, and maybe pics later ~ just wanted to kick off this thread idea hot on the heals of discussions in the unofficial crunchbang irc chan}

Be excellent to each other!

It's kinda like a Mobile-LUG (Linux Users Group) for #!Crunchbang-Users

Make regular meetings at a popular Truck-Stop
The LUG meeting are in, usually, bookstore or Coffee-shop

I would join and participate.  ... (I have houses in Las Vegas, Santa Fe, Lubbock)

Re: Crunchbang Truckers

Have a truck. 2001 Ford Ranger. It was a dollar (from a friend, our Corolla went way south at the same time they bought a new truck). They left about $1.50 in the change tray that they wouldn't take back so it ended up being -.50 cents, sort of like a rebate.

Re: Crunchbang Truckers

Now, when I think "trucker", I think of somebody with a commercial driving license (not necessarily "big rigs", but anything that isn't covered by a typical commuter's license).  Where's this "truckers' club" setting the bar?  Does an El Camino qualify?  What about this?

Incidentally, I'll be getting a new bike soon, and converting my motorized one into a pusher trailer, which will have plenty of room on the frame for either a passenger saddle or some large panniers (swapped out depending on need)...

Re: Crunchbang Truckers

i have yet to get a picture of my actual truck in its current state, but when it was new, and still had all its seats in the back for life as an "emm pee vee", i imagine it looked like this:

yup.  smile  even without the seats in the back, it's been a feature at parties.
pity it's off the road for the next few months.  hmm  benefits sanctions r no fun.  ... but it will return, eventually, and in greater glory than before. smile

Trucks. Railroad engines. Common element? Sometimes diesels. My diesel, however, is a 2006 VW New Beetle TDI. Lol.

Re: Crunchbang Truckers

Still working on getting that other bike, but the end result will be something kinda like this:
attachment_php_attachmentid_29795_d_1292949432.jpg
...only different.  Concept it there though; basically, it's like a tractor trailer, except the trailer pushes.
