So I'm about 3/4 of the way done with my trainer and we had a hell of a week this week... In a very cool way!

Too much to type on a phone but the gist of it is, ran 2800 miles around the northeast, two loads very very close to legal weight limit, hauled another load of Captain Morgan (woohoo!!) from Baltimore to Boston, Drove through NYC for the first time (talk about nerve racking), and now we're delivering a load of sand from NY to Kentucky that the owner told us will be used on the race track for the Kentucky derby next year...

How cool is that?!?

That's awesome Travis! Life moves fast out there. You get a lot done in a short amount of time, that's for sure!

My only claim to fame hauling freight was hauling the first load of salt that went into the aquarium in Chattanooga, TN when it was first built. After the delivery the phone rang and I assumed it would be the President congratulating me on such a momentous event but nope - it was my ma saying hi to me during her lunch break.
