I am one of the ones who is at home, but also staying busy for now. Since I have plenty of time to catch up on maintaining my rig, I have been doing so. From lubing quick spins, pressure washing and touch up painting the underside, to polishing wheels and tracking down hydraulic lines that may not be padded and gradually rubbing a hole, I am doing it. We could be in for a long ride, but I may as well have a clean well maintained rig.

    What have you been doing?

    Golf courses are still open here, one to a cart or walk. I may take up golf again.

    I've been parked for 3 weeks now watching coronavirus press conferences that ramble on far too long. There is very little work and a whole lot of greedy brokers which equals no reason to start the truck. I've had calls from the same broker for the last 2 weeks asking if I could help them move the same 3 cars to TN. No thanks, I'll watch from the sidelines.
