We were honored to have the International Chapel at Buck Motorsports.
Our view from the chapel.
I am going to make an effort to meet that driver. 🙂
Inge talking to Jim Stouffer, who came to tell us that we featured his truck on the cover of a Highway News in 1996 after he had been to the Lebanon Truck Rally.
Inge also took a picture of me talking to him.
After our visit with Jim, I walked across the driveway to meet Charles Gale who drives this beauty.
He was pleased to show me inside his cab/sleeper. Notice his bed folds into the wall.
it was designed by the previous owner and included beautiful myrtlewood cabinets and trim.
The bathroom includes a shower.
He has to be careful about the weight of his loads, because the tractor weighs 29,500 pounds.
I think it would be nice if someone donated a truck like this to TFC so we could deliver chapels with it. 🙂
After that visit, I walked around the lot looking for other truck-related scenery.
Many drivers were polishing their trucks.
This is how some truckers retire or take vacations.
Others like old trucks.
Bob (volunteer chaplain) and Glenn (Cerwin’s chapel construction assistant) visit outside the chapel.
Glenn was along to take the chapel back to the shop since Cerwin and I had to leave early for a memorial service and Chaplain Jake was going to a wedding.
Chaplain Jake was visiting with this woman and her children when we left.
It was nice spending time with drivers and seeing some beautiful rigs.
