    Yeah maybe that's better. I'm loading in Reno but it's heavy to deliver in LA.

    I really appreciate that information.

    Is 395 lots of pulling because my tractor is pretty gutless?

    Whats the mileage like?

    Whats the scale situation like getting to commerce ca?

    Thanks

    I35 south is Sanger, TX. Traffic was stopped due to 3 trucks spinning out on the ice. My hot tires melted into the ice and I was stuck like chuck. Had to sleep on the interstate that night with everyone else.

    When I got to the customer in Middleothian I had to chain up again to back down into the pit.

    Staring up the hill to get to the Freeport Mcmoran mine in Henderson Colorado.

    I was rewarded with a dum dum sucker and a mandatory video to certify I can stop at stop signs and not get smashed by a dump truck. (They were alot bigger than me)
