       Musings from
   the back of the truck.

When Jerry and I traveled back and forth to the Florida Church Camp, sometimes I would ride in the back of the truck on a small mattress his cousin has given us.  Here's a list of do's and don'ts or known as the good / bad / ugly.

Do:  Wear sunglasses if possible.

Try to sit up 5 minutes of every hour so you won't be disoriented and dizzy.  Don't try to read road signs during that 5 minutes.

Try mittens, it might help with bruising.

Have Advil handy for pain.

Empty your bladder BEFORE you get in the truck.

Don't:  Eat a heavy meal before you get in the back, especially in the mountains.

Do not try to drink a beverage while in the back.

Don't hold your breath.

Don't get mad at the driver, he is not swerving around on purpose to make you mad.

Do not lie on your stomach and rest your face on your watch . . it leaves an imprint for hours.

Don't try to eat, it may end up your nose.

Consider what you are packing in the truck that will be near your head . . don't make it something heavy.



It helps you learn how to pray!

Dizziness, nausea and bruises go away.



What are all those noises?

Why is the truck going so fast?

How much does it cost to rent a motorhome?

Does time go slower back here?

Can GPS find me?
