    Got my S Corp & 1040 tax returns as far as I could go this morning. All the forms aren't quite ready yet.

    I'm feeling a little smug and definitely relieved to be this far ahead of the game :)
     
    Broke Down 69 and Oxbow Thank this.

    Well, plan changed again and it's back to California for me. Got an extra day in the schedule so I'm going to turn and burn and get out there and do a 34 so I can keep piling on the miles.

    Oh yeah, it's effin cold in Nebraska.

    More later...

    Made it to Grand Junction, CO...where it's 62 degrees. But I started the day at -9 and drove through some pretty heavy snow East of the Rockies...and now I have a nasty cough and headache. In four days ive run just under 2400 miles and feel like my old self, chewing up road and spitting out miles. My takeaway is this, nice to know I can run 5 months straight, but rest and recharging is important to being able to keep up a hard pace...so from now on 6 weeks is about the limit. A man needs something other than a truck in his life.

    You're just a human asphalt grinder! ;-)

    Me, not so much. I ran 7,300 miles in December.

    And outearned me by a factor of 5 I'm sure. Hopefully, I'll be able to apply the lessons you've taught me to close that gap some when I start running my own truck. If I were you, I'd go ahead and change your phone number in the interest of your own sanity...lol.

    End of the week most likely. I'm starting another West Coast run that may send me anywhere coming out. I saw what the shop was up against and took @bzinger 's lead and told them to get to it when they can. Worst case is I pocket another paycheck or two. That'll give me a little disposable income to have the cb installed with new coax and tuned antennas.
