    The week leading up to Memorial Day weekend was a bit abbreviated due to my needing to be home Friday at noon. I also had a scheduled move taking me to NLR for a truck change, but it all worked out well. My student and I left out Monday morning and delivered in Ft. Wayne, IN, then deadheaded up to Butler, IN for a coil. We unloaded that coil later in the day down in Jeffersonville, IN, deadheaded to Cincinnati and loaded gypsum. This was all Monday! Tuesday we left out of the shipper and drove to NLR, spent the night, and unloaded at a home improvement store close by. It was time to start heading home, so we deadheaded to SE Arkansas and loaded trailer suspension parts to take us close to home in Lafayette, IN. After getting empty we drove home to start the weekend! I needed to be home for a family funeral, and Maverick got me there.

    Hey Craig how are things going? Have you moved to the Boat division?

    Yes! It's now official and I am in the MMT Division at Maverick. Currently I'm on my third load, and it is quite a change from working regular flatbed in our MWR Division. I'm still sorting out the pluses and minuses, and I feel like a total noob again!

    So where do they pick up and deliver to in the boat division?

    I'm currently glass but I live on the east coast so I'm probably out of the driving area. I just wanted to find out.

    I'm considering switching to flatbed but this would be interesting too.

    Glass is good but for me lately I've somehow ran into a sit around waiting for loads loop and I'm tired of it when its compounded by sitting around in Canada for various reasons as well. None of which is being compensated for.

    For the Indiana Division our boats mostly go out of Elkhart, IN. I think you need to live within 150? miles of Elkhart to qualify. I think if you made some calls you could hone in on it.

    I got a new helmet and am wearing it in this video. I like it, Petzl is the manufacturer.
