I didn't want to say anything until I was absolutely sure it was a permanent thing. But, I got my big black Gator back and we're on the road again. This time, as owner operator, meaning 75% of the gross pay goes to us rather than the 23%, though now we have to worry about fuel costs and repairs. Fortunately, they built Gator right, so she's holding pretty sturdy.
Theres a wire loose in the head that's causing the Check Engine light to come on. It has a lot to do with our emissions control software, and because it isn't connecting, the computer on the motor, or the ECM (Engine Control Module) has automatically forced the engine to operate at a factory set torque and horsepower rating, lower than what she is set at currently, which is 475hp and I think 1650lbs of torque. It's working at what feels like 435-450hp, because that wire wont stay hooked up.
Like I said, didn't want to mention it until I was absolutely sure we'd be staying in a truck this time. Here's hoping. The first month or so has been rough, the paychecks are low (that was because of cruise control during hilly states like Georgia, my old man wont use it now since he figured out it was drinking too much fuel with CC.) Additionally, the tags are due in at the end of March, so part of the checks are going to that, as well as truck and cargo insurance initiation fee.
I'm sitting in the old girl as we speak, at a Loves travel center in Houston, Texas. I hate driving through this area. Got caught in a residential area and rode alongside a little traincar on a single-lane road with an 8-foot barrier on each side and a 53 foot trailer hooked up to our rear. That, was a nightmare. If we had Candy, it would of been a disaster because someone messed up her steering box and she turned like crap.
Got further in Metroid Prime, found the Plasma cannon and the X-Ray scanner plus 2 more artefacts. Now I have to head back into the mines. Don't wanna do that, either. Darn mines are hell to navigate. So, to counter my frustrations with the mines, I started again on Star Fox Adventures. Last night I cleared the Cloudrunner fortress and am heading to the Ocean Force Point temple.
Unfortunately, I can't play the games as much as I'd like. The power they're pulling from the inverters are eating up the battery power in the truck. So I can't turn on the tv or my gamecube unless the truck is idling that way it keeps the batteries charged. And, the reason my old man doesn't want the truck idling is because the truck drinks 2 gallons of fuel every hour (She's old and tired, and in need of a rebuild. Added, the injectors are worn which is allowing more fuel into the motor). I usually play at night when we park, and the truck would idle for 10 hours if we didn't have to get up and run before our 10 hour break. So if it's idling for a full 10 hours, the truck will burn up to 20 gallons of fuel, and you will see the difference in the fuel gauge. Now, if it's cool outside, the truck will be shut down until morning. Unless, like last night, it gets up in the 80s and both me and my dad are covered in sweat and can't sleep, she'll be turned on for A/C.
When you're running a vehicle that gets average 5mpg, and fuel is about $4.28 a gallon (it's equipped with 2 150 gallon tanks but you can only fill up 97% of the tanks, so figure 290 gallons) we're spending anywhere between 1500$ or 1900$ depending on where we get fuel at. We don't always fill up, because it puts more weight on our truck and we can't haul as much frieght. Averagely, we'll spend 400$ on fuel in medium distances to keep the expenses low as well as our weight.
The money issue should clear up soon. Hopefully. And then we'll have to start making our payments on the truck, hopefully that doesn't suck. I had to pull some strings to get this truck back and ensure we had help from the company to get us started... Then there was the matter of conviencing the old man to get back in it, which finally happened when his mechanic job wasn't clearing the bills like it used to.
Now we need an Auxillary Power Unit, or APU, to help us save fuel and keep our butts cool at night without having to run the truck. There goes another $3k that we don't have yet. Gotta wait it out until we can find a cheap one, fix it up, and put it on the old girl.
I'll be back home around next week, not sure if I'll stay there for a bit or keep trucking with my old man. I'm still hurting from Candy's loss, and everytime I see a Peterbilt 379, my heart just aches like I'm being stabbed. I was in love with that truck... Now I've got my eyes set on a green one, regular work truck with the same age as my red one, same motor and transmission, but no custom addons that I can see. It's priced under 20k, but I have no way of getting it. Should whatever oppurtunity arise that enables me to get that truck and get to buy it, I'll take it. By God, I'll take it.
I'm also still in self regret when I failed to acquire the blue 1988 Peterbilt 379 and the other red 379 that I called Hellraiser. But if I get my hands on this green one, I'll be able to let them all go.
I know I'm a dedicated trucker by heart when I care more about the truck I'm driving than the paycheck I'm getting. It's an obsession that can't be broken. Many will agree, there's something about an old, long-nosed rig that feels right. And let me tell you, it's heaven.
About my profile picture ID & Name: Link is Link, and I am I. I will not write a self insert story. As for why I carry the name of Dark Lord Link, it's a "personality" I created for Link so I could write my darker stories that revolve around the Dark World from A Link to the Past. The only main reason I use it as a username is to "advertise" my creation to the communities in which I use it. That's all, I don't know why, but I really don't want any of the readers being confused by the fact that I write about the "Dark Lord" who might think I'm writing myself in the story. Which is NOT the case. (I feel pretty strongly about this, that is why I posted that paragraph.)

My musical inspiration. We Wait... We wait in hiding, we lie in wait. We secretly draw great plans. Of spaceless kingdom of the soul, Of triumph of the will!
We wait in hiding, we lie in wait. Slowly change our blood. For the arrival of the eon, Of the new mind and love!
The absence of war does not mean peace. The absence of noise does not mean silence. We whisper, we plot, whisper, we wait...
We wait in hiding, we lie in wait. We carry light, occulted... Each for themselves and never all. The solitary work.
We wait in hiding, we lie in wait. We are so many yet so few... The work is started and never done... Yet there's no yearning for the calm!
The absence of war does not make peace. The absence of noise does not make silence. We plot, we whisper, we plot, we wait...
We are carving, Out of light.
The airless structures of agape, For starts that never touch.
We wait in hiding, we lie in wait. We patiently seek the day. When all our wishes become true. When the new order has arrived!
The absence of war does not make peace. The absence of noise does not make silence. We plot, we whisper, we plot...whisper...we plot...we whisper...we plot...whisper...whisper...we wait. -Vader, We Wait

Hard, and I mean hard core Zelda fan. I write fan fictions, I support crack pairings, not a yaoi/yuri fan though. If I had the money I would spam myself and house with Zelda accessories.
Selma Blair, the actress from Hellboy, is a member of my family.
I sometimes make a bad joke and end up offending someone at times, a feat I never knew about myself until recently. And I will make sure this feat dies hard. If I happened to be playful to anyone reading this, and came off as a "jerk" or an "insensible arse hole"...Let me offer my utmost forgiveness and the chance to make amends.
Name: He Who Shall Not Be Named. (Born 1993-still alive) Age: 20. Orientation: Straight. Interests: Writing, reading, occasionally trying to draw, music, and Art. Appearance: Brown hair, brown eyes, I'm 6'1 tall, slightly pale And that's all I can describe myself as.
In case you haven't noticed, I am a massive supporter of Link pairings. I don't care for your thoughts of how it "can't work and Zelda is all he's worth" or "this is unrealistic, stop before you make a bigger fool of yourself" and all the other negative things they say.
I have an announcement to make to any haters of my cause and supported pairings. I will not stop, I will not rest, I will never give up. Nothing you do will deter me from creating something and nothing you say will break my spirit. Give me your best shot if you don't feel as if you're wasting your time. I will be as unstoppable and unpredictable as the sea. So many have secretly admired the things I've brought some significant light to. And I will stop at nothing to get those ideals mentioned above to a degree of recognition! That is my vow.

Let it be known that I overuse the plz's to get my point noticed and ensnare the attention of those I direct the messages at. Nothing overly emotional on my end, I'm not so keen on self emotion any longer. Except Rage.
I am a fan of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, but I am not a brony. How so, I don't carry their ways as my own. I prefer to remain just a fan who will occasionally write fanfiction for the show. Rest assured to those who dislike pony romance, I'm no fan of it myself so you wont have to worry about me writing it. I'll remain strictly to slice-of-life, horror or adventure. I'm not even going to mention canon pairings, just something I'd rather not get into.
Because some of my friends dislike any kind of copy-paste comments, I wont spread love-mail around. If I can't send them those messages, I'd rather be fair and not send any at all. It's how I feel. Also, I don't need to use it, because all of my friends know I'd die in a heartbeat for them, and I appreciate them as if they were my own flesh and blood.
