[ale] Seems quiet

Gas en route to CDC is $1.69 at QT. In Cartersville it's usually $.30 less or better. Apparently the need to keep a enormous pickup trucks fueled keeps the local gas station taxes low.  I feel like I'm filling up next to a dump truck used in a mining pit. Tires are 4 feet tall. Then a tiny, tiny person that looks like a 10 year old girl with a wedding ring gets out of tge passengers side with an automatic ladder and a guy built like a sumo wrestler exits from the other. How does one check the oil when the hood is 6 feet off the ground?
