    I lived in Hillsboro for just under 3 years and hauled chemicals up there. There used to be a homeless camp on the other side of that swift truck that had a black Mercedes suv parked In Front of their tent. It was amazing how big the camps would get.

    It’s so sad. That area could be just beautiful. But they just let it go to ####.

    Yeah my wife was freaking out when I had her on FaceTime while I was walking around but I had to remind her we grew up in Miami and as nice as it is there are parts that are outright ruthless so I felt okay.The mental cases worry me more since they are very unpredictable.

    I know your correct. But I mean I have actually seen lumber coming out of Detroit paying extremely well this year.

    I haven't hauled any with my little short trailer and 4' sides.

    Yeah just take a look at the boards coming out of Oregon.I have been looking since Thursday and that was the best I found nearest my home.The ones heading to the NE we’re paying alright but I’d be out another week.

    Heh... see, I'm gonna be getting paid pretty well to haul lumber in the PNW, but that's also partly because I'm working for a lumber company with a trucking department lol

    The best I saw was Florida for $8k but that would put me out another week.The ones heading to the NE we’re paying alright as well.
