    Guessing 10 or 20 cents a pound. That big scale by Joplin would be my first concern. Good luck

    Or he's still in route. Having to avoid the interstate can add a bit of time to the trip.

    I avoided Joplin and St. Clair and hit Terre Haute and Michigan when the scales were closed.

    I'd say it's time well spent. I would rather be spending extra time on back roads than spending money at the chicken house on some BS.

    Indeed. I do it as much as possible too. Especially if it helps me avoid a toll road also.
