The Buck (1)We were  honored to have the International Chapel at Buck Motorsports.

I am going to make an effort to meet that driver. 🙂

The Buck (3)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.

The Buck (4)Inge also took a picture of me talking to him.

The Buck (5)After our visit with Jim, I walked across the driveway to meet Charles Gale who drives this beauty.

The Buck (6)He was pleased to show me inside his cab/sleeper. Notice his bed folds into the wall.

The Buck (7)it was designed by the previous owner and included beautiful myrtlewood cabinets and trim.

The Buck (8)The bathroom includes a shower.

The Buck (9)He has to be careful about the weight of his loads, because the tractor weighs 29,500 pounds.

The Buck (11)I think it would be nice if someone donated a truck like this to TFC so we could deliver chapels with it. 🙂

The Buck (34)This is how some truckers retire or take vacations.

The Buck (35)Others like old trucks.

The Buck (36)Bob (volunteer chaplain) and Glenn (Cerwin’s chapel construction assistant) visit outside the chapel.

The Buck (37)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.

The Buck (38)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.
