If he wants it that bad he probably has land picked out waiting for approval to buy
What about the family Lo (Logrund) ranch in Blaine???
Not at this moment. Ideally we were hoping for the YRC yard but they're still holding it. We may end up building.
Wish we would have built a new one... Our yard is a little rough right now. We'll be out of it in ten years if this growth keeps up. Adding around 88 doors and replacing concrete at the same time, it's every man for themselves.
The new yard in Casper is very nice. Nice building and lots of room. And the yard is all concrete... No more potholes the size of a V W bug or volcano ash all over your cab!!
Already paved. Will be open for business soon.
Good! That tow yard, though a nice place to meet especially during the day, is way off the turnpike and at the bottom of a big ass hill. First time I saw it I thought to myself, that's gotta be a bitch during the winter...
Yep. Many have been stuck pulling out of the property. Not anymore!
I'd be just as worried sliding down the hill on the way in!
They usually have that part of 31 plowed - at least during most parts of the day into evening. Where it gets hairy is taking 31 outside of town to get to 30 for the hazmat route back to HAR. Most drivers are smart enough to simply refuse the hazmat route if there is snow on the ground. It doesn't take much ground cover to cause an issue with those steep grades (one is over 10%).
The issue with pulling out of that current meet spot during winter is that there's no way to get a running start since you have a stop sign and need to make a 90 degree turn before going up a hill. Dead in the water.
Is it my imagination or do all hazmat routes seem to be me hazardous then the route they're trying to keep us off?!?
True dat! I'd rather run Eisenhower any day over US 6... never ran the Penna turnpike hazmat route... from the looks of the sign you're ok with most hazmat as long as it's not in bulk..,
Mostly true. There are exceptions.
Yeah there's a few you can't take through...
Is there grass there for Billy to mow?
Nope... I took his goats!!
Ump's trying to corner the market on these goats.
"Read an article about a gal who drinks nothing but goats milk, claims it makes her butt better"
You leave Billy's wife out of this. She makes Billy drink it too, he says it makes him feel like a kid!!
Now that's funny!!
You are no longer allowed to laugh at Ump's jokes for 24 hours. Hope you learned your lesson.
