  1. Thanks for the heads up on an athletic-goods liquidation on the fast track. Wouldn't be surprised if Sports Authority sold off the displays along with the remaining merchandise – I could land useful furniture for a workshop that way. 😉

  2. i used to drive trucks 48 states for werner enterprises, i was teams 48 states. anways, i did ALOT of amazon warehouses loads going to ups hub somewhere across the country. did that more than anything else.

    werner really took advantage of it's truck drivers. we really were living inhumane living conditions and getting paid dirt to do it. i think it's because of things like that, that make shopping online much cheaper, these trucking companies abuse the drivers more when it comes to amazon loads.
