    There will always be adversity starting out in this business. If you are joining the enemy :nono: because you have to do what you are doing to take care of you and your family more power to you.

    But if you are joining the darkside out of spite because you are mad with Dad, Shame on you:cry: Those trucks didn't just pop up over night. They had to go through adversity too.

    I wish my dad was in the business and taught me a thing or two.

    Nope I had to learn things by trial and error. Lots of errors.
