    Heheh, I know that feeling. Mine tends to come in with less scratches. I get bored.

    Hey Cpape, turns out we hired one of your former (way former) drivers to work in the office over at HML.

    I am enjoying myself in Texas. Visiting my wife's parents. I have golfed every day, and going again tomorrow. Heading back on Monday. JP has been holding down the fort, and seems like he has everything under control.

    Sounds like you are having lots of fun. I hope things better at the new place. I have a three axle trailer you could come and pull, but I don't know enough about what our work load will be like for heavy haul. The old man bought it at a good enough price that if the HH work isn't there or isn't paying, we will leave the flip at home and run it as a normal RGN...or else just sell the thing.

    Anyway, I am optimistic heading into 2014, but I usually am. Hopefully, things will be better. We should learn a lot over the next couple months. Hope 2014 is a great year for you.
     
    Meltom Thanks this.

    Well I'm happy to read you got a holiday in.
    As for the new place,time will tell. I will keep your comment in mind.
    After their trl. breaking at the del. point and all the higher ups on holiday, trying to get another trl. is kinda slim picking.. You bought an XL correct?
    Well that's the brand that broke on me. Have your people look at the rear of the frame just before what I call the riser section. Just before the lead axle. That's where this one snapped.
    Thank goodness no one got hurt and the ld. not damaged. Never have been a big fan of that brand of trail. I like their extend track deal though.
    I think my holiday time went out the door though..

    Are you asking if we hire drivers from Illinois? Yes. You live a bit off the beaten path so you would probably have to contractor, not a company driver. Any other questions?
