Sure, that would be fine by me, in fact, appreciated! It is pretty frustrating that Photobucket did that, especially that even my signature picture is gone now too. I bet others would prefer that over countless old threads full of the Photobucket logo. Glad you saved a few, thanks!

After the trip to Beatty, I tried to run part of a day around home Thursday...took a load of squeegee from Draper to Smithfield and bounced over to Plymouth to load chips to go to Stone, Idaho. Friday and Saturday were both spent hauling sand from Brigham to Salt Lake, then more squeegee from Draper to Smithfield. Two rounds each day. I've been loving all the miles I've been getting lately, sure beats short circles around town. In fact, I've gone over a hundred thousand miles since last August. Not much for a real OTR driver, but I feel pretty good about it being local eight months out of the year. Now tomorrow I'm supposed to go to Cedar City, clear down at the other end of the state, to load something to bring back to Ogden. Can only get one load a day and will probably be doing that most of next week.

Thank you; I will hopefully be able to start putting them up within a few days.  And that W900 really does look odd pulling a set of triples! :o

Did three of the rounds to Cedar City last week. Thursday was spent hauling from Draper to Brigham, Friday was a jobsite hauling roadbase from Trenton to Logan, and yesterday I took a load of salt to New Plymouth, Idaho. Back on the roadbase job tomorrow.

Can't even remember what I did on the 25th and 26th, but I know after that I got to go to Beatty, Nevada to pick up decorative rock and then loaded salt for Weiser, Idaho and delivered last Saturday morning. Spent all this last week taking it easy hauling to the Ogden trap and hauled sand from Draper to Salt Lake at a portable batch plant yesterday.

Holy cow! Sure have been busy! Work still ain't slowing down...all the usual plant hauls around here, more decorative rock out of Beatty, Nevada, and still more salt to Idaho sheds anytime I have a spare minute. Not to mention the truck show at Thanksgiving Point last weekend and how hard I worked the whole week before the show, late at the shop every night getting my Diamond Reo ready. I expect to be busy the next two weeks as well, as I try to get my pick-up ready and also Scarlett for a local show here in Brigham City (yes, the Royale is going too). ;D

Cool deal on taking the trucks to the show, hopefully we can see some pics... ;D

It was pretty wild to see when I walked out of the truck stop, haha.

Thanks, I can't share any from the Salt Lake show because I sold the coverage, but I will post lots from the upcoming show next month!

Still dirty, but we built my plexiglass air cleaner guards last week. I'm gonna polish all the aluminum on the truck today and then I'll just get a quick wash Friday night before the truck show.


Ran Ogden all last week, then grabbed a load of salt for Marsing, Idaho for Saturday delivery.

Ran a jobsite in West Point with roadbase from Willard all week.

Here's the results of my polishing on Labor Day. The truck cleaned up pretty good for the car show it went to, quite a week getting everything ready. I'll get pictures up from the show soon I hope. I'm also gonna shoot my truck with 509 and 539 today, since all three are cleaned up right now.
