Pickup Man…

If you grew up in the South, you probably spent a fair amount of time riding around in the back of a pickup truck.  That’s where we like to put dogs, tools, building supplies, and kids when we head out on the road.  I had the pleasure to see a significant chunk of Alaska roll by as I stared out of the bed of a pickup, because if you go anywhere in Alaska it’s going to take you a while to get there and you may need four-wheel-drive before it’s all over but the shoutin’.  Judging from the tools and the look on the face of my buddy here, it looks like there’s work involved where he’s headed.  Oh well, maybe they can go swimming afterwards.  (4 July, 2008  Smithville, Tennessee)
