    NATO has been obsolete since the invention of the ICBM. They should pay 100% of their own defense.

    Well, this week was the worst I’ve saw since 2015/2016. I’d hate to be just starting out right now. Not sure how one could make it.

    How’s it looking out there TTR family?

    I'm booked through Tuesday. Not too bad this month. I'm right at 13k of revenue on 5,500 miles. I've been home every night this month except 4 ;-)

    Not too bad. It's not as great as it was last year, but there's still plenty of money to be made if you're willing to work.
    I got no complaints.
