    I posted this the other day on the Truck Drivers thread about my son in law being a truck driver.

    Well, yesterday he's on his way to CA. Him and another truck from the same company were running together. Jimmy Buffett's bus passes them. They search on the CB and find Buffett. He says he's stopping for the night at the same truck stop and for them to find his bus and have a beer. They did and Buffett gave my son in law 2 autographed pictures.

    He thought that was pretty neat, I did too. :smile2:

    Talk with my son in law while ago, he said they spent over 2 hours in Buffett's bus. I think they had more than one beer, LOL.
    He said Buffett was sure a nice guy and common. Also said his bus was swank.. of course.

    On the CB Jimmie told them, "Boys we're going on and we'll see you at the truck stop, drive careful and don't speed." The speed limit was 55. Son in law said Jimmie was flagging them over when they pulled into the truck stop.
    Jimmy also spent the night in his bus at the truck stop... I would have though he'd be in a five star hotel but guess his bus is better. May not been any 5 star hotels in that area. LOL There were two buses, I guess one is for the band. He told them he did 30 shows a year.
    He didn't mention anything about a parrot head on the bus. I'll ask him the next time we talk.

    That is just tooooo cool!!! Good for him! And I think I agree; they probably had more than just a beer or two! But, hey, it's not like they were going anywhere else! I'm a huge Buffett fan; have been for 20 yrs. I guess that's one of the perks from having to be on the road all the time; you get to meet some really cool folks. Thanks for sharing that!
