    I haven't seen a new TP-60 in a long time. The last ones I had were made by Silver Eagle just before they went out of business.

    Nope . Hope you layered up. Now get on that cold ground!

    The old ones from the late 90s-early 2000s were tanks.

    I had one once. It got shipped off to Alaska. Rediculously heavy.

    Took one out last peak on the route I covered. It paid and extra .30.

    I agree. But those short trailers (8'-12') are harder than a longer trailer. Give me a 30' one and it's easier to put where you want. Those short ones you have to feather or they jackknife quick on you.

    The first thing I ever backed was a small concrete mixer. If you can back a portable (single axle) concrete mixer you can back anything.

    The tongue just hovered at about 18" above the ground if the pod was cranked up and it had no weight in the nose of that thing.
    You always knew it was back there when you towed it. I loved parking by FedEx drivers at a dock stop with it attached to a P10.

    But I don't think that you are "here". Isn't it so interesting how things are different all over this land? It's almost hard to believe. On a side note- top rate is likely higher where you are compared to here.

    Top rate here is $37.66

    As I said- higher than here.

    I don’t think you are “here”.

    Correct- and that's why I said that your top rate is higher than here. If I somehow offended you I am not sure why. Just pointing out that things are different all over.

    No offense taken just messing with you. Our top rate maybe higher than your area but I’m pretty sure it’s lower than some.

    We'll have a Happy Thanksgiving- I think that is the same here as where you are...

    Yes- I wish I could achieve your many successes. Especially the one where you squirreled away two years pay in thirty years. Yes sir- you are way ahead of me.
     
  19. Leasing an automobile gives you all that extra money to invest....

    Leasing is ok in the right situation. But setting that aside, it's all the other advice that humors me.
