Where is My Truckin’ Dad?

So, in case you didn’t know, my dear father is a truck driver. The whole semi-drivin’ long haul takin’, cross-countryin’ type. Anyway, a few weeks ago, he enlisted me to help him purchase a cell phone, finally. He’s been on the road for years without one and has finally figured it out. So we found a service that worked for him, selected a really nice free phone that comes with it, and went to lunch.

This is him after we ordered and sat down.

This is him after our food arrived at the table.

He’s biting the inside of his cheek like he does. The first time I noticed that he did that, I was about 6 or 7. It was winter and we were sitting in the Buick in our driveway in Riverton (of course I was in the front seat with him sans seatbelt, because kids in the seventies were much tougher than they are now) and he was cursing at it, trying to get it to start. Each time he’d turn the key in the ignition, he’d bite his cheek. I found it so fascinating, I tried it myself. Hm. Not bad. I still do it sometimes, I think.

So, yeah. He’s figured out how to work the camera on his phone and now sends me pictures from the road. I think this will be a fun little game to have on my blog. I’ll post his latest picture and then we guess where he is (we because he doesn’t tell me where the picture was taken until later).

So here’s the first photo in Where is My Truckin’ Dad?

  1. Ooh, I’m gonna like this game. To me, it seems he’s on the east side of the Wasatch range somewhere. If I had to be specific, I’d say he’s north, near Ogden or Huntsville or whatever’s east of Ogden.

    Uh, am I close?

  2. Nope. Well, ok. It’s in the western U.S. So, kind of.

  3. I’m almost positive I’ve been on that road. I’m trying to think of where it is.

  4. I’m going for Montana… or Washington… Montana mostly but if Washington is right then I did say that too…

  5. I’m gonna say either washington or oregon. so, who’s right?
