    How's everyone been lately? Pretty steady here, spent most of the week last week helping our lime rock division, not my favorite by any means. We started off the first two days dumping at a stock pile location, but we finished up the week running "road" jobs, simply not sleeper truck and frameless trailer friendly. Lime rock in general is already one of my least favorite materials to dump, it's sticky, heavy, and doesn't like to move, throw in early morning sun in your eyes, un-even rough grades, and it puts the pucker factor at about a thousand for me. Friday I was able to get back to normal though, I brought a load of cold patch down to Clearwater, and then went south and got some shell to go up above Jax tomorrow.

    I don't know about you guys but I'm looking forward to some time off around the up coming holidays, my parents are coming in from Texas for thanksgiving, and then we're traveling to Nashville for Christmas. My parents bought a home there for their retirement, and my sister has lived there for years, Nashville is one of my favorite places to visit by far so I'm definitely looking forward to that. Safe travels all. Sorry for no cool photos lately, nothing too exciting out there anymore.

    @Trashtrucker1707
    Sounds like you have been keeping busy !

    Well since I last checked in here I had a good conversation with Tom Peace Trucking. I overnighted them a bunch of paperwork and took a drug test here at the house. Just waiting to hear back from them. They had no issue with me living in what's left of upstate New York.. Hopefully will hear something soon.

    Goin good here! We been so busy with salt and the weather holding up the concrete plants are still running it’s been pretty hectic. Fertilizer season is popping off too so that’s adding to the craziness. It sounds like dumping that lime rock is no fun. I hate doing stuff like that where it’s just sketchy all the time.
    Nashville is a blast man we went down there and went to the country music hall of fame it was awesome. And some place that was like the original spot famous for hot chicken or something. And we checked out a Preds game too they have a great fan base. I’ll expect pictures!

    @Tall Mike Tom Peace has really nice equipment. They have new KW’s running around town and they are slick. They have stout hoists too on their trailers, they don’t mess around in the commercial zone in KC either. We’ll put on 35-38 ton and they’re north of that. Keep us posted how it goes I’m interested.
     
    Tall Mike Thanks this.

    I'll be rolling out for KC towards the end of the week. There was a little delay as my drug screen results never got sent to Tom Peace Trucking. Thanks to everyone that contributed to this thread. I probably would not have found them otherwise.
     
    Slowpoke KW Thanks this.

    Also @motocross25 agree 110% on the lime. I hate that crap, and gods help you if it gets wet.

    A clean truck always makes life a little better, here’s hoping it last’s for more than a day :) D9AA2BBB-F190-41AE-954A-3941F9A055C5.jpeg
