Six years ago today, truckster was spawned here.  I’ve had fun with that, and if I see more old mobile or formerly mobile hardware along the ways, I’ll still stop and look closer.  By the way, any guesses on the make and year?  Answer is at the end of this post.

But all things must change . . .  especially when a for-the-birds idea turns into a dux nightmare, and gigantic ones start poking out of the fog.  Maybe this blog could focus on poultry a la duxster?

Do I want to go on with this, or should I let

sleeping muscovites just sleep . . . and sleep elsewhere?

Or a formal dress blog called tuxster?  With all the memes post-Ever Given, how about a blockage blog called stuckster?

Nah . .  . I’ll stick to tugster.  Count the tugs here?  Maybe we’ll reprise this busy photo

in tomorrow’s post.  For now . . .  that old truck is NOT a voltswagen . . . .

It’s a derelict 1938 Ford.

All photos . .  and lame humor, WVD.

See you at the parade today!

I take photos of machines that don’t float and have these to share.  I used to have a Class 1 driver’s license.  Hmmmm..  maybe this blog needs a new name and focus?

Harry Milkman took this photo;  I’d seen a boot truck like this once but on the opposite side of I-95.

This Oshkosk was south of 30th the other day although I forget the street number.

These many wheeled configurations were in Savannah port.

This amphibious jeep was in New Orleans.  Trucks have real potential for a blog of their own.

This old DAF Kromhout was near Rotterdam.

I love the range of challenges the operators of this truck will take on.

This International has been parked in the kudzu not quite long enough to be cocooned.

DonJon has trucks as well as tugboats.   I’ve seen a Kirby truck on Richmond Terrace and can pull that out of the archives in future posts.  The soil seems fertile enough if I switched focus on this blog.

This looks like an original woodie by the spokes as well as the doors.

And this .  . is unique.    So . . . retooling this blog I will

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

NOT.  It is April 1 and I thought I’d entertain the idea.  But then I could do a blog of wanted posters and call it thugster, one of short-muzzled dogs and call it pugster, one about a central Swiss city would be Zugster, and one for folks who fix software problems called buster.  Of course, buster could also work on entomology. Plugster for plumbers, jugster for fans of moonshine, and the list would be so long I’d be paralyzed.

So I’ll maintain course and speed.  Thanks to Harry for the LL Bean bootstermobile.
