    Some words you need to learn.

    Stop; this applies to a number of things.
    You have trouble with some thing, STOP, take a breath. Step back a moment. Refocus and try again.

    NO; sometimes you need that word. Stick to it when you use it.

    Help; It is perfectly fine to ask for assistance when you need it.

    One more truth.
    No load is that important.

    THIS RIGHT HERE. ^^^^^ You may be right and it is just stress, but DO NOT TAKE THE CHANCE. Get the exhaust and emissions system gone through POST HASTE.

    Yeah i was exhausted. I’m out in the truck right now waiting on a steel beam load for tomorrow.

    I think i was exhausted from getting acclimated with the truck and the weight i was pulling. I realize i need to pace myself and not go balls to the wall. Just enjoy my runs not try to burn the road up if that makes sense.
     
    cke and Tug Toy Thank this.
