____ Probably the shortest trip on the blog for a long time. A preloaded trailer from the yard to a Waupaca publisher; 11 hours of driving on four-lane highways and Interstates. Barely-legal heavy but no problem for the Cummins. Unloaded, bright and early Thursday morning and back to Fridley, a suburb of Minneapolis. A reload of cardboard for Winnipeg; nine big rolls, quickly loaded. Back through the border into Canada just as the sun was setting and the mist was rolling in. Tipped by 10 on Friday; empty trailer to a nearby customer and bobtail back to the yard. It is the Canadian Trucking Show this weekend at Headingley, Manitoba, 18th and 19th July, so just in time to go to that. Shall I take the four year old Peterbilt or one of the brand new Freightliner Cascadias? Decisions, Decisions.
