    300 mile journey

    Think im just gonna go for it. The pros outweigh the cons. If i was to leave my rig, i dont know when id be able to get it back. I plan on working 6 days a week only cause sundays we close and i wouldnt have time to go back down to the city and pick it up. Unless you have any qualms about the idea.
