    You're welcome, by the way I drive through McMinnville quite often going out to our Willamina yard at the Hampton mill.
    Have you decided on whether you are going Western 11 dry van or 48 state refer division yet?
    If you go W-11 you'll see Walsh trucks a lot, we haul into a lot of the same Georgia Pacific paper mill facilities that May hauls out of.
    Either way when you're in OR and WA you'll see a lot of us on the freeways.
