Just came back from the party. I was great seeing faces I hadn't seen in quite some years!
Here are the pics:
Thanks all for a great time, and don't forget to place your memories of the Truckers here on the forum:
Send any pictures, from the party or from the past. I'll place them on the site.

hello benita, long time no see. I am living in the Big apple now and left Detroit in 93 to get my MFA from Rutgers University. Mission accomplished. I am now looking for a job with little luck.
I do miss Detroit. Detroit is the greatest I don't care what the locals here say. They are filled with self indulgence and conspicuous consumption.

What a party!!!! Friends gathering together from west coast, east coast, florida, isle of cypress and from who knows where. Must do it again soon. We'll need a bigger "potting" shed next time. We're a very fortunate and a very special group of people to have friendships that will last a lifetime. I'M MISSING ALL THE HUGS ALREADY. Love ya all GARY O

The old potting shed was the place to be at times. I had a wonderful time, and I agree with you Gary. I would not change those 10 years of my life for anything. Next time I visit my sister in Florida I will have to make a side trip and visit you and Sharon.

I only knew of the Big Rapids (Truckers) Trucking Company, in passing. Funny thing is I'd only heard of them until one day when I was hitchhiking to Detroit from, of all places, Big Rapids(late 60's or early 70's). One of the guys picked me up and we struck up a short lived friendship based upon mutual political beliefs and activities, not to mention, if I recall correctly, that he'd attended Lowrey High School in Dearborn and had been a friend of my cousin. He also had been into my friend's head shop in Grand Rapids - Fat City, in the course of business. He put me up at their houes in SW Detroit for a night. I got to see the garage and communal lifestyle. I left in the morning to continue my journey. We saw each other a few times after and that was it. I don't recall his name but I'm sure someone will remember him by my short description and post his name. Thanks all. =Skipper=

The only name I recognize here is Gary O'Gorman. What happened to the Boone's Farme people?
