Never say never.........

About fourteen years ago I swore I'd never go back to that place. And I bought my own truck so I could say NO.

..........and I didn't go.

About ten years ago I was offered a "high dollar" load to go back. I said that I wouldn't go back to that place unless they paid me LOTS of money.

..............and I didn't go.

About five years ago, when offered lots of money to go back. I said that I wouldn't go back to that place unless I had front and rear escorts to look out for me PLUS lots and lots of money.

............and I didn't go.

About a year ago I decided that I wouldn't go back to that place unless I had POLICE escorts to look out for us , PLUS front and rear escorts to look out for me, PLUS and obscene lot of money.

.................I'm going back.



To New York City....or at least the edge of it.


It's a Bridge Project. It's seems they really, really, REALLY want me to go...apparently I do well on projects....well enough anyway.

Bridge beams.

Four foot tall, Thirteen foot wide, Fifty three foot long........and a hundred or so thousand pounds.

Many, many, many, many bridge beams.

Thirty miles ........round trip....at night.

Gonna last a long time too....months. And they're way behind on the project right now.


I'm in Missouri right now....heading East.


Maybe I should have held out for more......but I need the money.
