    Finally got my full truck and trailer today! Almost got my first load but got delayed because i managed to get the wrong size fitting for my trailer when i was at home doh! So im sitting up here in monomonie atm waiting till the quarry opens and chuckleing at all the weird looks im getting for having my pretty new looking bullfrog hooked up to a ratty old salvaged end dump with new guts. 20210322_085124.jpg 20210318_133012.jpg 20210322_085308.jpg

    That’s salvaged? Looks like brand new stuff for me :). Seriously though, safe travels and be easy. I’m on vacation this week, things are still weird in MO, definitely not back to normal like Florida but we’re trying to make the best of it. B37A6117-A6DA-40BB-9DBD-E4B6C63C6383.jpeg

    Yea when you get up close its obvious it got pretty torn up.

    These two show it best you can see it likely rolled at some point. Plus the entire door has been torched and welded a few times.

    Also is that the bridge near the isle of capri in KC? looks a lot like it from that angle. If so go to east 70 exit 11 there is a little thai place there called thai spice that has some of the best asian curry ive ever had. Worth a visit if your on vacation. I like the yellow or panang best. Pair em with the lemon tea and you cant go wrong.

    Cool dude. Glad you’re enjoying it. In June we are doing your vacation in reverse. We goin to Nashville to see the chicks mom and then heading down to Pensacola. I’ve only ever been to Tampa for a wedding and Orlando for work. Anything interesting in Pensacola you know of that we shouldn’t miss?

    @motocross25 Yup so far so good! Did a load of silica sand to kokomo today then got boned by the traffic in indy, so i load out of terre haute at 7 going to STL.

    And tell me about it. Getting a new truck set up is annoying as hell, gotta take it to the shop to have my roof ferring pulled off so i fit under 13 foot belts correctly and have my ELD installed this monday.

    Also need to get an alt for my tripack and the wireing replaced to the battery. Cant safely idle an MX without screwing up the EGR and i likes me some AC. I am also going to see if they can fix the absolute rats nest my battery box is and get my inverter working. Id do it myself but i literally have over 50 random wires that are loose in it with 90% of them not attached and dont want to risk blowing something fumbleing around.
