Gotta do some catching up.
Oslo, yep Cresson was an old standby in the '70s, no matter how hard we tried to avoid 22 or 30 in that area, sooner or later you had to run it, and Cresson was a stop. We avoided them 'cause both routes were truck killers, and they always took the drive with them. Now adays, Cresson is crossed by a 4 lane wide highway that's really a pleasure to drive. I'm not sure I recall Keystone, but mebbe if I saw it, I would. The fifth wheel was another one on 22 and by today's standards, it too would be a dive, however the service was great, and you got gooooood food.
Question for the Mainiacs, I spent a week one night in a town called I think Madawaska. It was about as far north as I could go, and be in the state. I mistook the customs shack for the company guard shack. I had to layover for the night, and load in the morning. I went to eat in some little bar and grille, and the darned place was filled with wimmens, all of 'em married, but single. It seems that the only place to work around there was in the woods, as loggers.
GEEZE LOUISE didn't any of them loggers get home on weekends long enough to make kids? After a full night in Maine, they wanted to cross over the creek and drink Canadian ale,,, NEVER AGAIN. Of the 3 of us drivers, 1 went with them, was never seen again, and I never loaded til the next afternoon. They were all pure ladies, but they sure kicked our butts.
Cured me of running them heavy paper loads.
