    I'm the same way. I try to avoid it on my odometer as well. It's always good to get past it.

    Pulling a 48’ around on a peddle route will have certainly have you finding a curb sooner or later. You just can’t make some of the turns in the textbook manner with daytime traffic.

    Can confirm. It's a lot of fun. 48 ft flatbed that is.

    Pull in to park last night and found the perfect spot, guess CRST was worried about losing his hood.

    Then I wake up this morning to this gem parked in the other side of me.
