    Maybe a mixture of both would be. Some weeks it’s booming then some is just enough to keep busy. I’m looking forward to 2021 already lol

    Might sound like a dumb question, but what do they use caustic and sulfuric acid for?

    They use the sulfuric on their soil. Not sure what it all does, but it must help with berry growth and flower growth. The caustic was just on board for another stop. Generally we have a bleach tank and a sulfuric tank at nurseries and what not.

    Seeing as how I live in IL, the state would just send me an IOU for the winnings. o_O
    Just as busy as we’ve ever been and even more lately. We picked up more accounts and we can barely keep up already. Since I’m one of only 9-10 guys with passports, I’m running Canada every week. Mostly the Toronto area. The Canadian work seems to have settled down a little, but it’s staying steady. (One of our customers got shut down buy the Canadian OSHA for storing to much alcohol indoors. They’re about 2 weeks from having their tank farm built. I’m assuming they’ll go back to the 2-3 loads a day once it’s all completed).
    While I appreciate the fact we’ve got loads of work, I’m totally ready for my vacation. We’re taking a week and going to north Myrtle beach in July.

    Lansing. I checked with B&R tank and they said the bullets didn't penetrate the tank.
