These are two underground complexes where we make pickups.

I've delivered to Independence, MO. I said to the gate guard, "Into that cave? Nose first?!" It didn't look like I would fit.

After I got backed in - without touching one of those pillars, too - I asked the receiver if they gave out placards or awards for such an accomplishment.

Here's another adventure...

When I picked up the load of scrap paper, they just blew it into the truck with a giant hose. I supposed - wrongly - that they would use another hose to suck it out of there.

Wrong. It just slid out the back. Then the guy came along with a backpack blower and blew out the truck for me.:)

I'm retired now, but your video makes me miss it a little. A little.

My wife doesn't miss it at all. Thank you, Wife, for putting up with it. I got to do something I always wanted to do, and I will never forget your sacrifices.:thumbsup:

Yeah I've been to those caves too. Really tight in there. I've also been to the caves in Springfield and Warrenton, MO. Lots of fun!
