Thanks you everyone for the kind words & encouragement.

I'm almost to my 3rd delivery. I've dealt with bad winter weather (ice), I parked and waited lol.

I've made a few silly rookie mistakes (make sure your ENTIRE trailer is on the scale or you will get a really strange look on your face when they hand you the scale ticket)

I'm taking my time & making sure I do and cover everything.

Merry Christmas!! 🎄🎁
