    I'm paid percentage and still stand by my previous statement. Did 10 drops in "JOISEY" just a couple months back in some awfully hairy places. Tight is about 80 percent of what we do with farms and such but I still say that whole corner of the country is a cesspool. I'll tolerate it once in a blue moon if it pays well but I wouldn't wanna make a habit of it.

    I did a load of poison cross country last year during the blitz.

    That fulfilled my hero / devil may care obligation, and I now have a 5 year exemption from driving during the blitz.

    Ya I only go there when it pays the most, which turns out to be much of the time. You might be right about Jersey being a cesspool though. After all, theres gotta be issues anywhere where the local delicacy is a deep fried hot dog.... :confused:

    Not only is it deep fried, it's deep fried until it rips open. That's why it's called a ripper. Now get thee to a ripper shack.

    If I randomly heard the term ripper shack it would sound like something completely different

    You haven't lived until you've experienced death by ripper.

    Not sure $10.00 a mile could get me to that #### hole. Was stationed at FT Dix NJ for 3 years
    Yeah no that whole geographic region is a no go
