    Yep. Id advise everyone stay out of Tx. All these guys saying you'll probably never see a rattlesnake is full of it. They're everywhere, out west you have the desert rattlers, out east you've got the swamp rattlers and those can swim.

    Oh and the size? Yea lets just say there's a reason they call them Tx Anacondas.

    And and the freight sucks down here. Its 3:30 on a Thurs and Im sitting at home!

    Lot more rattlers in southern az than texas... they will let you know they are watching you. You will hear them before u see them. If u hear them shake their tail just walk back slowly the same way u came. If u go any further they will bite you. They are not aggressive . Only defensive.

    Yes we need bouncers at our state borders. No one gets in anymore unless it is just to visit.

    Thanks for the honest advice. Yeah no need or reason to do such runs either, when you can make just as much, and even more by doing shorter runs, just more trips per week, but that's fine because I would be home more often. 1 or 2 nights out ain't that bad compared to an entire week, knowing the place you are driving to comes with it's own risks. Yeah I'm definitely staying far away from Texas, thanks again for the advice.
