    Wow, that is a helluva view. Best I can do is sit in my bathtub and see the base of the toilet

    That's terrible WOM, you need a real vacation....although being out driving the country when you start out expediting IS like an extended, paid vacation, ain't it?

    Another day of laziness at the community pool. Eat, sleep, swim, rinse & repeat! Gosh this is boring. I can't imagine being "really" retired.

    BTW, the pool is usually filled with women, average age around 80

    Well after a TONU yesterday out of Tampa, i have my fingers crossed that Murray will hit a home run...otherwise may take a page from WOM's playbook and look at short cruises. Pops has already been looking. I love the idea but much rather be running after being off for shutdown. Then again i havent been to SeaWorld but once as a kid...(ive done Disney and Universal etc a few times)...rather delay these for a month or 2 tho or longer if we stay busy. As Rihanna says, "Work, work, work, work, work...".

    Keep in mind guys you are in the middle of Prime vacation time for many industries, just not automotive so don't expect a lot of movement....just don't be so selective at this time or you'll sit for extended times...

    WOM, you take an extra week off? I'm on my 3rd week off myself. Going to tell Murray to look for a Sunday or Monday load soon. Kind of need to get back out wandering again soon. I miss it. But, while home booked a Las Vegas trip for the wife and I in September. Last year spent out 25th anniversary in Hawaii and this year we'll be at the Venetian Casino in Vegas for our 26th anniversary. Next year thinking maybe Australia!

    I'm with you Tim. Stayed out for 3 weeks and I can't take anymore! Plus, the first couple of paydays in September are going to suck.
