Rockhounding Outcrops and found the Star Wars Truck

So Joe and I last year were in North Carolina for a rockhounding trip, cruising with friends in our extra long van the “Rockhound Express,” stopping at various outcrops and cracking away with our hammers before hopping back into the van. Well we come to a point in the day when we need some water, Red Bull, snacks and beer for later.

Then walking out of this chain grocery store, there sitting double-parked in front of the entrance/exit is the “Star Wars” truck. This dude must really like Star Wars is what we all commented to one another. We looked at the license plate, and while it did read a pun off of a shortened version of the name “Hillbilly,” otherwise the truck reflected a safe enough soul, and we waited for him, or her to exit the grocery store.

As the photos reflect, you can make out all the major Star Wars heroes and heroines, and the enemies from the first three, chronologically speaking here, of the Star Wars chapters. Notice the “Darth Maul” that shows a Star Wars timeline while Anakin Skywalker was still with us.

Finally the occupant of the truck exits the store, and I approach him like a correspondent from “60 Minutes” and ask “sir, can you tell me about the truck please?”

He proceeds to share that a buddy of his owed him quite a sum of money. I forget if it was gambling related, or payment for some work on the house, or plumbing,,,something like that. He said the dude could not pay him, but he was a talented artist. Now the owner of the truck was a “hillbilly” who admired the Star Wars movies, so he asked the dude to detail his truck with scenes from the 6 Star Wars films.

Now here is the kicker,,,the owner of the truck went on to say, that the painter had a bit of a drug problem, and half of the truck was painted while he was clean, and the other half of the truck was painted while the artist was on crystal meth!

I will let you decide which side was painted under a crystal meth high,,,
