Today I get to take a work truck and 28 ft. trailer, drive the freeway for 2 hours to the 2nd largest major city in the state, through some major storms, and return with a loaded trailer....and I've never driven in that city nor with a trailer IN MY LIFE!

LOL  Wish me luck!


Update:  Well, I made the trip in 5 hours including loading the trailer.  I was unsure of where I was a couple of times but didn't get really lost.  Had some traffic that made me nervous when I was in Grand Rapids.  The trailer was an easy smooth pull and handled well, even when loaded.  It rained 95% of the trip!  I could have done without the rain, and I was VERY relieved to get back safely.
