    The slow time of the year plus the cold and ice. Seems to me rates on the spot market are up despite the time of the year.

    I tend to sit these storms out as they cross my path but I haven't had too hard of a time getting loads, mostly big trucks and equipment. Although the weather caught me this week. I waited for that big storm to pass through the southeast and took a bucket truck up to NC but somehow that storm is still here. I dunno what the hell happened but I waited till Wed to take that truck because the storm was supposed to pass by on Tues.. Now I'm up here and it's rained all day and they are under a winter storm advisory and they are expecting lots of ice tonight so I delivered today then found a hotel... I could have easily reloaded today, but this storm still being here caught me off guard and I didn't want to mess with icy roads.

    I know last year I struggled a bit this time of year but I was still my non CDL set up. Every since I got my bigger trailer and now the new truck I haven't had many problems finding stuff to carry. Rates are still hit or mis though. Either really good or very average..

    I got a late call ....power outage...delivered about 7:30 and got a motel....if the roads get bad I can wait until I go back to the house ... I am blessed as I have been doing this gig for a while..... Off and on since 2008 if I would have focused on this I would have done much better... stuff comes and goes and people told me some stuff that was not so but I didn’t know only thru trial and error did I find out....not that I know everything I don’t... that is why I am so hard on you in my response sometimes.....being educated in the Marine Corps leads me that way ... it was effective for me hopefully it will be helpful to you

    Prices are up because fuel is also going up but its probably the storm and the quarantine. Fuel prices wont cause this until it stays here for a few months.

    I fear its going to get way up there once again.

    The "great reset" is in full swing, I am taking all my Federal reserve notes and buying precious metals, they are going to destroy the economy on purpose to bring about this change.

    What these empty headed LIEberal dont get is that Govt is creating this mess only to sell the solution later, We arent going to have a choice in this, its already happening.

    Remember the goal date is 2030.

    I know about the Reset, IMO there is nothing we as the masses can do financially to prepare or protect ourselves. You have given me intel earlier on the meds and I thank you. Keep the notes they will be something even if China is in charge. You Russia and China is the last to come to the table. 2021 goal is to take charge they are moving rapidly.

    Well there is also this thing called the Great awakening and its supposedly in play but its just not right now.

    Its tin foil hat stuff but something is happening, im just not sure what.

    In the history of history precious metals have always had value. Gold for long term investment, Silver for everyday spending or even industrial uses.

    Not Tin Foil the first meeting in Rome 1967. It covered subjects like world hunger, natural disasters, wars , climate ( ice age at the time ) The purpose was for the good of mankind. This year the ideas will not be hidden.
