    CiscoKid is headed east!

    So it's been a long while my old friends, sitting here in Amarillo getting ready to head out for another day of driving. After a number of life altering events, I decided to join my friends and move to Ohio with them. They bought a 6 acre property for less than a 2 bedroom in Cali!

    Good to see you around! This is quite a move, but you are on the road often. If you don't mind the colder winters, you are flexible for work and have friends there it may be a good thing.

    The "work" issue may be a problem, I e been dealing with some medical issues that make it risky to stay in the field

    So far...people in New Mexico and Missouri can NOT drive for crap! I'm pulling a 12 foot trailer, my friend is driving a 26 ft. Budget truck, and his wife is driving a jetta...people have been cutting us off left and right, nearly running us off the road going 75+

    All in all though, we've made it to Illinois today, going to get some sleep and try heading out by 2 for the final push of a little over 8 hours...then crash before getting dragged to midnight mass

    What are you pulling the trailer with?

    Watched my friends' UHaul pull their Jeep for a 360 on I-10 a while ago.

    Remember, weight forward.

    This is the exact reason why my friends' U-Haul wiggled, whipped, then flipped and took the Jeep onto its side with it:
