Check out

Errols' cave experience they do it to help save on cooling costs. Look up Subtropolis Caves on YouTube. It's in KC and I believe it's the largest underground cave system in the country and they still have a whole lot more space to expand. I'd seen a video from that show Modern Marvels about it. Definitely worth a look.

Looking at the tracker it shows you're at Kwik Trip. Man I love stopping there, most of their lots I've seen are easy in and out and they have healthy options for cheaper than most of the other chains. Heck, I even stop there sometimes on my way home to grab eggs because they're so cheap. When travelling with our kids we always stop for the fresh fruit they have for half the price than loves it seems. I always will stop at the Kwik Star in Brooklyn Iowa I80 exit 201 if I go out east. I've not yet encountered an employee at any of them I've stopped at that seemed unhappy with their job.

I wish Kwik Trip would come to Chicago/ Indiana so I could stop more often, they have the best bagels I've had.

Plus a few months ago I lost my wallet at one when a race at Road America near Plymouth WI and someone turned it in at one with all the money and most importantly my Med card/ license.

Well, my office window is pretty unique sometimes. This was me climbing at "The Quarry Wall" yesterday in the Adirondacks. You can't see the entire wall in this photo but it's about 80 - 90 ft. The temps were in the single digits but the sun made it super comfortable. I'll have to start climbing with a helmet cam for some more interesting shots.

DAC:

Drive-A-Check Report

A truck drivers DAC report will contain detailed information about their job history of the last 10 years as a CDL driver (as required by the DOT).

It may also contain your criminal history, drug test results, DOT infractions and accident history. The program is strictly voluntary from a company standpoint, but most of the medium-to-large carriers will participate.

Most trucking companies use DAC reports as part of their hiring and background check process. It is extremely important that drivers verify that the information contained in it is correct, and have it fixed if it's not.
