    In this business is the unknown factor we have no knowledge of.... like 10 minutes after we take that 3100 lb load , a 20 lb box load pops up... but we think we lucked out because we have a load...
    Take the 2 skid.... 3 skid debate.... over the years ... Turtle and I have comparative yearly incomes... so what’s the answer there? Is 3 skids better? Who really knows ...:)

    12 days? Wow ... that's a winter vacation. I'm sure the holiday didn't help get things resolved quickly. Not a bad place to be stuck
    Hope it all goes well ...

    Total? I didn't think it was that old. Last time I dealt with a total (not mine Mark) they said keep the check OR keep the car but NOT both??

    In some cases they'll (insurance company) will allow you to keep the vehicle. But they'll deduct some money off the total payout claim.
    They did that when my Jeep Grand Cherokee got rear ended! But a year later I sold the Jeep and doubled what I would've made had I taken the settlement and let them take the Jeep!

    Hope it works out for the best Bill.

    I think having the dims for 3plts are the better way to go. Most times when dispatch calls for 3plts that's what it is. Sometimes it's less than that. I do see Turtle point, no matter what load he's under he's got his bed.

    Went to PA on the 17th; called my son and he asked us to come to his house, as he was sick. He was, all right; we ended up staying over the holiday. He is much better now, so back in the saddle we went. Took a PA to GA run, now at the Pilot in Madison. We need to go back to PA next Monday and Tuesday for doctor visits, then do the job for another couple weeks until Christmastime.

    Looks like we’ll be regional this coming month.

    Haha haha...

    Just listened to the phone message from my broker while waiting for the connecting flight in Minneapolis to LAX.

    "We got a load from Florida to Oregon, call me back."

    There goes the monthly paycheck. Lol........
