    I will join you in hating Western Beef. That place just naturally sucks.

    By far the scariest place. Did not think I was gonna fit, you need to be on your A game for sure.

    Yep.. That backing inside that awning is sketchy. Getting there is another trip though. That bridge is marked 13'4" but I fit under it. I was creeping under it with my door open lol. Went there in 2014 doing my dispatcher a "favor" on a national beef meat load. Never again lol

    Horizon Ventures on Lake Street in Chicago. Have to back into the place through a narrow gate, while avoiding the uprights for the overhead EL tracks. And dealing with traffic.

    The Harbor Freight store in Salisbury, actually the beauty supply store it shares the building with, is always fun, not.

    If you show up in the middle of the night it's okay, but in the middle if the day with the parking lot full of cars it's nearly impossible.
