    I call it fertilizer, but the technical term is bio-solids. Pelletized poopy if you want to be technical, it comes from a water treatment facility and they use it all over south Florida in different types of applications. I dumped one yesterday in what was described as a “good location, solid ground” I guess they failed to see the slope of the right of way, either way, that’s why they send the professionals :) A9DF31A7-E8A0-44CB-B587-483A3F4C4B77.jpeg

    I've hauled a bunch of that stuff to some pretty sketchy locations. Including just dumping in the middle of a county road and the farmer just pushing off with a loader.

    Ya did a good job. By the way it looks in the picture like it had some definite lean to it.

    @Al. Roper we haul tons of this stuff especially in the spring season, I've been in some of the deepest depths of Florida back country that I didn't even know existed, and I've lived here dang near all of my life. @Professor No-Name thanks for the compliment, I've dumped enough of this to know where I can get away with a lean, and where to put it down. I had to put this one down 5 or 6 times and re-adjust before I could get everything out of the trailer, all about the tricks of the trade and knowing your limits. As far as you go @motocross25 enjoy the vacation, unfortunately our Pensacola customer relocated to Tampa so the likelihood of me getting out that way next week is probably slim, but I'll keep up with you on here if I see myself making that trip, otherwise be safe and enjoy the time off. Remember, Felix's fish camp in Mobile, if you don't go you only have yourself to blame :)

    Haha got it! Thanks man and yea I’ll keep my eye on here, if you’re around lemme know!

    I guess rental cars are hard to come by. I have a Chevy Impala and the chick has a Kia Soul, so we were wanting something a little bigger to take. We reserved a mid size SUV about a month ago, and getting it today they said they were out so they had to upgrade us. Darn the luck. 2021 Toyota Highlander. It’s pretty nice, tons of room and lots of get up and go. I do have a feeling it’s gonna effect the gas budget however!

    Oh man it was great. Thanks for asking. We hung out on the beach, played some putt putt golf with the girls, went to the sea turtle conservation thingy and went parasailing and it went too fast. Man Saturday afternoon we went to the beach for a bit after we arrived and it was cloudy and I lathered on some sunscreen and it was evidently not enough. I got absolutely fried. As did the girls. It was an aloe night that’s for sure. The next day we just kinda hung around the AirBnB and ducked over to the pool a few times. I got everyone sun shirts and we just coated on the sunscreen the rest of this trip. That Florida sun is no joke. Our last day we went to a beach between Pensacola and Navarre and stayed til dark just getting sea shells and had pizza on the beach. Til we got run out with crabs everywhere. It was pretty cool. We started heading back and ate at Felix’s before we toured the USS Alabama in Mobile. You weren’t kidding that place is one of a kind. How’s your week going?

They are fast but these lizards are faster. 210138A8-DB6C-4649-BD7D-F95145BF32C6.jpeg Sea turtle 46342DC0-93D3-4AAB-AAF0-32DD9A568F60.jpeg Looking from the back to the front of the USS Alabama 332C92F1-AC58-4D18-842D-4676C9B1CB81.jpeg The beach we set up at our last day between Pensacola Beach and Navarre.

    Glad you enjoyed your time in the panhandle, and cool to see you check out a few of the things I mentioned. I wasn't expecting much when we went to the USS Alabama, I knew it looked cool and I had been wanting to go but it was much more interesting than I had anticipated, and I didn't realize they had the submarine to explore as well. And of course Felix's didn't disappoint, I was most impressed by the way everyone comes out at the same time and serves the food in perfect sequence.

    As for me, the week was pretty decent, only had to be out a night this week. I've been staying pretty busy close to home which is nice, one of the major players in scrap down this way just re-opened their shredder operation not 10 miles from the house, I'm preloaded with zorba now out of there so I'm hoping it turns in to some steady work.

    What’s goin on? Been a pretty easy week back from vacation for me. Fed a concrete plant sand Monday and today ran infield sand to a school in Omaha NE then bounced over to Des Moines to get landscape rock back for our yard. Tomorrow help unload a granite train at the yard in a class B truck. Easy peasy but man it’s hot up here. 100 today and they say worse later this week. What’s goin on down south @Trashtrucker1707 ?

    @Arctic_fox you up and running? What’s the latest with your rig?
