    I watched the On The Road episode in Alaska. I liked Ron’s distinction between Courier and Professional Driver. Before, I would have used the terms interchangeably, but what he said makes sense. Keep on driving, Ron!

    I was a member of the ACK team last summer 2018 and had a great time. Working with a group that was knowledgeable and hard working made the summer a huge success for the increase in volume we received. If asked again I would accept the return to ACK.
