    No AZ for me. I have been trying to stay in the NW for a while. I am doing a favor for my broker this week and had to go to L.A. I hate it here. Besides you know if it was me I would of been hollering at you.

    Ha yeah, it was night though.... Saw a white and black stretched 379 with a spread pull in as i was going to grab a shower, came back out and he was gone....Good call on staying out of the SW, theres hardly and loads and if you do grab one it pays like ####. 4 more trips for me and im starting my local produce runs here in MI.

    That is the kind of stuff I do with the nursery. My last trip was 700 miles round trip. Out for 2 days and home. When I packed beams I used to do 362 miles round trip every day. 10 hour days home every night.

    There is 2, 1 in MI and 1 in IN, but the MI is always closed, even if open they are mostly set up for multi axles. IN if open i practice my prepass :biggrin_2559:. Im never that heavy anymore that was only one run. It paid #### good though, if i am over its usually no more than 3-4k. 75% of the time i have blue berries so im no more than 70k lbs. Last year running my 379 ex hd with 3406E 550hp i averaged 6.7mpg the whole summer.
