    No I wish, i cant drive anymore, knees are too fucked up, damn I wish I could, I miss it so much. Enough I drive out to truck stops once in a while just to see them idle, man its in my blood.

    ANyway I have a couple friends been out there empty since Thursday and were told it will be like Wed before they might have freight

    Pressed_Rat Do you even lift, bruh?

    California is by far the worst off at the moment, but the rest of the states will soon follow suit because this is only going to get a lot worse. If people think the economy is bad now, just wait until hyperinflation kicks in.

    Sorry to hear that, man. Yeah... if it hits California, it's a matter of time before the rest of the country feels it.

    Well normally its easy to get out of CA with produce and all. In the winter they bring it up out of Mexico to AZ and southern CA. Its been tough for loads leaving the east going west already due to the economy but now even food has taken a slump, thats scary! People need food and when food freight dries up there is issues.

    I don't want to hear about inflation.

    How long do you think it will be? I remember seeing a documentary on Germany during Hitler....his paying off the debt with income that wasn't ther...and thinkig....what the hell are we doing?

    Well we have been on loan money for years sadly. Now they are printing up funny money (well more funny than it already was) and sooner or later that money has to be met with somthing real.

    How long until the hyperinflation kicks in? My guess would be sometime before Spring. But it could be longer. It's hard to say. A lot of the financial people I listen to are saying between now and April-May. This will be when the real crisis begins.

    I am hoping to stock pile the shit out of my house and hope to be able to continue. An estimate helps! My partner doesn't agree....but I don't give a shit because I feel survival is best...not for me...but my kids.

    Look at it this way, buying stuff you would use anyway is nt a bad investment. I went into shares with some others for buying a couple beef cows and piggy's to offset the costs. My freezers will be totally full March 5th.
