Lmbo, can see it now... Two guys donned in black, face masks and all.. Running in a box truck with the curb side door open, guy inside motions the Charmin driver to the side of the road... Charmin driver begins to laugh hysterically and holds up a pair of bears underwear and steps on the pedal and pulls away into the sunset!!

The masked bandits slowly come to a stop, mouths agape in wonder as to what they just witnessed!! 
 

DON’T SQUEEZE THE CHARMIN!!!!

One week into this layoff thing, and the start of the group build..and I got to see the build together. 

Glad Verizon has kept our phone service active so Tom and I can keep the builds matching..its been extremely fun . We've even made the trailer numbers sequential,  and rumored the trucks will be also

Heres the entire build together

I have a feeling these trucks would need armored guards bringing them into towns after wandering thru the grocery stores lol ! 

As much a panic it would cause right now...a convoy of Abrams tanks and Apaches overhead would make for an interesting break from being inside on quarantine 

At the very least Mad Max-style barbed wire rigging and a .50 cal on the roof.
