I too am curious about your driving and if you're still doing it?
First off, good looking rig!I'm hoping to go down south again this winter, but we'll have to see.
So last year I bought a Kenworth and rented a 53' reefer and was hauling plants and shrubs from a nursery in Kelowna,to Edmonton. About a 1200 mile round trip. I did this 2 or 3 times a week for a few months. After that I drove gravel truck, and did some equipment operating for a friend of mine who owns an excavating company locally for a couple months In the winter time I bought a logging trailer and hauled logs to the mill in Northern Alberta.
Overall it was a good decision, I needed a break from contracting. I was tired of being outside, invoicing, estimating and customers.
I made about the same income as the previous 2 years and I enjoyed my work. The downside Is I was gone from home probably 125 nights.
So this year, I was bumped up in the heirarchy at the nursury, and got in 3 months. Highlight of the season was my trip up to Whitehorse Alaska. Right at the Summer Solstace. It was still not dark at 3 am:blink: It was unusual to be so isolated, I went a full 600 miles without cell service, and probably passed a dozen or so cars in that time. I stopped for the night at a pullout, and I think 1 car drove by all night. I saw wild Buffalo,lots of black bears, A huge Grizzly A bald Eagle several bull Moose and some really interesting scenery. the picture of the parking lot is at between 2-3 am
Currently I am developing My basement. I think I will be Framing a house in about 6 weeks, and I haven't decided if I wanna haul logs after that. How's things with you? Are you an employee still? I seem to remember that didn't take?
