The long road.

We left Claresholm on August 6th after pre loading lumber in Wynndel and ran down to Knoxville Tennessee, then, after unloading we carried on down to Lexington South Carolina to re-load for Canada.

5595 miles. The Yellow squares are NOT stops, they are put in to force the map to follow the permit routes.


On the way back up we had to stay overnight after arriving in Paducha KY on Saturday afternoon, through to Monday morning due to permit curfews in Illinois, then we carried on and hammered back up to Claresholm, where we unloaded and went straight to Calgary after changing trailers to load reels for Texas,

4690 miles. The Yellow squares are NOT stops, they are put in to force the map to follow the permit routes.

We ran to Texas, and, after unloading there we went to Houston to get a part load, then across to Big Wells for the rest of the load. 

A nice run back brought us to Claresholm on the 26th after 10,285 miles and one and a half days off.

We will be out again after a 36hr break, and could be going anywhere.
