    Well piffle,
    I’m actually going to Mebane. Took em the better part of 3 hours to get to that conclusion but they got there… eventually.
    Waited for the planner to get back and unsurprisingly I was unassigned from the Mebane load. Fearless leader calls and tells me I’m going to California, I give him an ETA and life is good.
    Two minutes later the phone rings and at the same time I get a message that I have been unassigned from the Victorville load.
    So apparently this whole time there was a trailer going to Mebane sitting in Fremont that someone had dropped. It had just been serviced today so it obviously had been on the lot for a few hours. So yeah…
    Anyhow, hook it up… and find a nail in a tire. Thankfully when the shop guy I Shanghai’d pulled the nail it didn’t leak so that was just 5-10 minutes of Cherry on top.
    Originally when I was going to Columbus they assigned me an empty, of course the guy that dropped it didn’t sweep it so the first 20 minutes or so of the whole deal I had something to do. So whoever got that wagon, you’re welcome.

    Well, it's a Bobcat so if you like doing calisthenics in a 4' box, you'd like it. In case you weren't aware, Bobcat uses 2 hand controls and 2 foot controls to operate it, while CAT uses 2 hand controls to accomplish the same thing.

    Those foot controls are TWITCHY most of the time. You sloooowly push on them and BAM.... you get ALL of the motion. Usually slamming the bucket down. I liked the CAT waaay better.
     
    MidWest_MacDaddy, BigR and YardMule89 Thank this.

    If you're not mindful you'll really #### up somebody's yard popping wheelies and spinning around.

    You can get the same hand controls on a Bobcat as the Cat.

    LOL :)

    So ya, get to Dealership, wait, make plans for Loaner etc…

    They don’t see anything under there. {insert rolling eyes}

    Go back to CB to have our guys take a look and they verify they too don’t see any obvious leak in that area.

    So it just don’t add up. But maybe, just maybe, my mental note of old stains in the parking space wasn’t what was there. Maybe it was fresh but from the immediate prior truck setting there.

    Who knows, but the good news is I’m up and running and just keeping an eye on the issue.

    I’ll take the miracle and drive. :)
