    Benton, St. Elmo, & Meridosia are Marathon Terminals
    Morrisonville is Louis Marsch
    Shrewsberry & Olivette are Missouri Petroleum
    Bridgetown is Spirit Asphalt
    I could be wrong on the exact locations of the Missouri ones.

    The reason I asked, we're putting a rail spur into Missouri Petroleum....

    You guys must work some crazy hours? I passed one of your kw's at about 3am a couple weeks ago down by richview.

    Yep, if we're starting @7 we need to meet no later than 6:30 to get loaded, figure 1-1 1/2hrs to get from the terminal to the jobsite, half an hour to load at the terminal, 1 1/2 to get from our yard to the terminal so there's 3 AM already and that's not giving yourself any leeway for backups, snafus, or breakfast (which my boys love to do). Gotta make hay while the sun shines.

    Been super busy so no real action pics or videos, but I did get to take my daughter on her first truck ride. We had to pick up a dropped trailer about an hour and a half away, which was about a half an hour too far for her. Best quote of the whole trip came at dinner. We stopped at a McDonalds along the interstate and her big concern was if we were going through the drive-though or not. After that trip I have a new appreciation for my dad taking me out all day to ride with him.

    I did get one picture from the top of one our trailers while I was getting loaded tonight.

    I'll be driving the transports a lot more since we don't have a lot of work and we're short handed.

    That's awesome you took your daughter along. When I was kid I had an Uncle in Fargo,ND who owned a transport company. I still remember my first ride in one of his trucks. That was almost 18years ago

    I still remember being that age and the saturday morning baby sitter(Mack R Model). Man I loved them days, getting to ride along and take a load of coal into St. Louis(anheuser busch), then getting to go down to the big quarry(collumbia, dupo, falling springs, or casper stolle) to pick up a load of rock for the ride home. Enjoy these days while you can, time goes by way too quick anymore!

    The weather is still good and we are still oiling. Had to break away to take care of a repeat customer, mowing will pick up when the weather turns bad.

    I found a keyless start loader unlocked and ready to run, is that smart?
