    Empty pick-up truck TX to VT - Any use?


    I am potentially flying out to TX and driving back (the truck is paid for). I am going to offer up a severely discounted shipping rate for anyone who has a bike or something that fits in the truck that they'd like brought back... $200 ?

    This doesn't make or break the trip, but as of now I think it's much cheaper to drive back than to ship - and I can cross a couple more states off my list of 37 visited.

    Will you be taking I-90 through Utica, NY?

    there's this kid that goes by "dollar bill" down there...beat him up, and bring me his dirt bike

    but that's a great deal...I almost want to buy something on purpose and have you bring it to MA...and I don't even live in MA anymore

    Please bring 47 illegal immigrants. I'm on the road a lot and need my lawns mowed.

    Sincerely,

    Mitt

    I want to see the math that determined 47 was the number of mexicans needed.

    He said, it has to fit in the truck. That's exactly how many fit.

    It's not the number needed, it's the number that will fit. (k_cotter understands!)
    Might as well bring a few extra, just in case...








    OK, that's way too f-ing harsh. And the video's too sad to be funny. Sorry.

    And my apologies to Kitt for screwing up his thread (seriously). I'll stop now.

    Maybe I'll just add a post to the "What are you drinking now thread"

    Not only will it eat you, when they bite they lock their jaws for a minimum of 15 minutes and they saw back and forth.

    I ran one over in my driveway and then it hissed at and almost bit my husband when he went to get out of the car and nearly stepped on it.

    I'm actually talking to a guy on Craigslist about the possibility of buying a ginger and a russian. I'll let you know if the sale goes through.

    Go onto "uship.com" and see if they have any items that you could haul back. It's the "shipping Wars" TV show, you bid on the amount you will charge to haul something. Registering is free.
