Well, the gas truck driver does not want to drive up the jeep trail. I admit, it's narrow and would be easy to go off of, plunging down into the gully. But he knew the job was dangerous when he took it. There are times, coming down in my F250, that I get a little nervous I might hook a wheel over too far and go rolling over the side. I'm sure driving a big gas truck up there is not fun.
However, the road was designed to be hard to get up. I do not want a freeway leading up to my buildings, nor am I interested in having a connection to the forest service road that someone might consider indicative of there being a good target up the mountain.
The problem is that the driver is not a local. Those local fellows can go just about anywhere, they grew up here and they are used to it. This guy is a flat lander and he hasn't got the intestinal fortitude to take the truck up. I have been up here for decades and I've had drivers complain about the road but I never had one flat refuse to try it before. I went to town, to the office to get this straighted out, but there were no decision makers there. So, I told them if they didn't find someone who can drive to deliver my fuel by tomorrow I'd just switch to another company. Since the companies fix the prices to keep them high, one is no different than another in that respect. It's irritating. You just never know what's going to come up next that you have to take care of.
