    Hi. Do you have any walking floor trailers? We have a contract for beach restoration in New York and need several trucks with walking floor trailers.

    Might have to work nights for a while and the learning curve can be a bit much at first but it's been good to me.
    There's a lot of guys been in this for years and even decades,not a bad gig.
    I talk to guys all the time that have 15 or 20 years in the chip thing,Walsh has one guy with almost 40 years at the company.
     
    truckmonkey Thanks this.

    One pro at Willamina is getting to drive the Pacific Coast Highway 101,I get down there once in a while but the Willamina guys do it a lot.
    Willamina to Lincoln City then down to Newport and out 20 to GP Toledo.
    I did that run once this week and the weather was great on the coast so I stopped for a short walk on the beach near Newport,man it was so so nice down there!:yes2557:

    When ya get home from work check your pockets before ya go into the house..............wifey no like chips on the carpet.:biggrin_2559:
    I WAS a chip hauler for a number of years around those parts. Useless & Reckless, The flying W, Yuck & Muck to name a few. Word of caution-Don't forget to uncouple your tractor from the trailer on the dump ramp. Yes you see it all at those mills. Guy loading wet Hemlock chips in Weyco K.Falls and lighting killed the power w/ the jaws open. It was just a matter of time before the tires started blowing out and the sides of the trailer split wide open. Hope you guys like the Woods. Nothing funnier than herding a Super B train up some Goat trail to a chipper. Ye-Ha.
