So I got a new job transporting new travel trailers to dealers. I had to purchase an HD truck. After all the crap I went through looking for a decent truck in the budget I had, I ended up with a 2008 GMC Sierra 2500HD. It was a Texas truck and it has had its problems, mainly due to it having 225k on the odo when I purchased it. Over time however, I have done a lot of minor work to it and it in return has been a great truck. In the 8 months that I have been doing this job, I have been many places in the US and it has been just awesome. There's a lot more to the story, but I'm not going to bore you guys with that.

That truck looks nice for 225k on it.

That's awesome man. A life on the road always sounded pretty cool to me. Seeing the country first hand, and getting paid. Definitely enjoyed your pictures on Facebook.
