      Yep, and it won't be much longer Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here! Our profession is a fast pace live style and it's not for everyone. Were here one minute and there the next. You don't have time to take in the day and reflect cause your on the next project and soon before you know it the week and the month has gone by.

      Finished retouching up my prior touch up on the Sprinter :rolleyes:

      Last time for the 1st time, I used a rust inhibitor (black). I guess it was a little overpowering for the white on top and was bleeding through. Hopefully this last 2-3 coats of white will help keep it at bay :D

      I don't know what kind of party they are having tonight. Just picked up 5 skids of Trojans, 3 different flavors, straight through delivery. The pay is so good, it makes me feel it's a mistake.

      Sounds like a few football teams are going to party......or a doctor's convention.

      Speaking of toys, I got a new one today.

      After trimming my hedge by hand for the last 3 years, I got a electric hedge trimmer.

      Well, maybe not a toy but I sure had a lot of fun using it. I did more in under a hour then the last 3 years combined, and no blisters

      So will I

      Came back in service on Friday and threw in my line. Dispatch came through will a nice Friday load from home. 1k miles going down by Jacksonville Florida. Needing sleep and with the heat and forecast of rain through the day, I did something I've never done before. I checked into a cute little campground.

      [​IMG]

      After getting some sleep, I went for a walk to check out the place.

      [​IMG]

      Made a few friends along the way...

      The airline gods are not smiling on me today...mechanical. Reschedule. Cancellation and another reschedule. Best case scenario... 22 hours of travel from start to finish today.
