    Yea, but that gives you right around 500.00 to the trk. and the ld. is going 499 miles so you're getting more than a dollar mile. You should be happy. Plus the price of fuel just went down again...

    You forgot about the need for permits and pilot cars to get back out too. Even empty you can be over length and require these things to move. We have one truck with the 9 axle that even after decking up the jeep he is still over 110' overall and thus needs a pilot car on 2 lane roads.

    I would imagine her learning will be short lived after she bankrupts herself with fines and violations. On the other hand hope no one gets hurt due to her ignorance.

    Did almost 65% DH last month - Birmingham to AZ via Houston to Eastern Kansas and the Vegas to AZ. Pretty ugly......now just sitting in AZ having to go meet the soon to be ex-wife to sign more #### papers. Would have been easier if she would have just snuck up behind me and shot me

    No the other way around... Take her back to Mexico, get her drunk and she "fell" off the balcony.. Happens all the time in Thailand..
    Sad but true for the foreign guys..
    That's why I try and stay in ground floor rooms. lol
