    Which way you coming from? From the south you’d have to go over the hill and then north in the first valley west of Malad. Or run north out of Snowville into that same valley.

    The new one east of Declo you’d have to go west out of Malta and up into Declo from the south.

    Is the new one just west of the 84/86 split open yet? It looked like they were getting pretty close last time I was past there.

    Road trucks tend to look a bit out-of-place on either of those routes!

    I’m all set with the road pirates, had a brain fart the other day and went by the NY tandem yard with their big yellow signs out and 3 chasers, well fuq, roll in and waved over, 2 hours later after coming out from under my tractor for the second time he goes back under my trailer a 3rd time, about 15 minutes later he comes out and says he found a chafed brake line but since the fabric is not showing he is going to do the favor of letting me leave to fix it at home just a violation, so I made him show me, so we go to the back and he says run your hand over this line and sure enough there’s a tiny flat spot about the size of my pinky nail, I’m sure he saved hundreds of childrens, nuns, and puppies lives with that inspection.

    my own fault, I can get around any scale in the north east and spaced on it that day, And I’m sure I’ll get a nice insurance jump next year for it

    Ditto. I definitely didn’t avoid every scale in California working locally for over a year while driving without a license.
