In black river falls, Wisconsin for the night a.d roads have been awesome.
These Jayco trailers pull really well. And oddly they seem to sway less than some of the others but I think that's just my jayco favoritism shining through lol. I mtl can't get over the size of the jayco facilities! Huge!

I checked out the google maps... not a lot of trailers in the picture,but tons of room for them. I bet the lots are packed right now with trailers waiting for delivery.

We went down to Louisville today [from Nashville, In] and on the way back the DW counted 24 trailers going south and it's only a 70 mile trip. It seems you guys are working round the clock. Be safe out there. Terry

I didn't feel like taking a chance going up I 94 towards North Dakota after I heard it was closed from Alexandria to Moorhead. And then 50 mph winds and blizzard warnings all afternoon. So sitting in Clearwater waiting for it to blow over. Anyways here is a pic of the 32 TSBH, another really nice Jayco. Was getting nearly 14 mpg towing at 62 mph until the weather turned sour.

St. Paul, near the state fairgrounds. I was to go to Fairmont MN for a day trip today. Well we made it about 50 miles in about 2.5 hours (interstate driving)before turning around. We were just skirting the Blizzard Warning we have. We figured it would have taken 5+ hours to get to the plant, for a 4 hour management meeting. Then turn around and drive back, Yuck! I think the big manager that was with us got nervous once he started seeing big rigs and lots of cars in the ditch. I did see a few transports, at the truck stop where we decided to stop at.

Drive Safely.
