Sorry for upsetting you so badly with my retorts directed at IheartmyslowassNX, but it's fun. Isn't that what is supposed to be going on here anyway? You know, having fun. If you don't like, well please except my most sincere apologies and I'll be sure to not respond to Mr. IheartmyslowassNX's stupidity ever again.

At least not until next time!

California allows a trailer behind a fifth-wheeler... but... you need a CDL. (Commercial Drivers License)
