I saw that too. I also recognize the guy they interviewed right after that. Can't remember where I know him from.

He's on the forum, Gator1, nice guy. He was on the 40's Only Run two years ago. Really clean 40. I can't recall his name though!

Here's his rig:

It looked like he was rolling stock type tires, real nice rig. Seemed all enjoyed the humor in it and the Buffalo's looked awesome later in the story.

You're more of a star than you think....

You are being played on HLN (CNN) today as part of the "UPS blames delays on the storm" story....

I'll see if I can get a screen capture.... because everyone wants their 40 being pulled out of a snow bank immortalized on national TV.

EDIT--I got a picture...
