A dying breed? Or smart enough to adapt?

Where do you want to be?

Many messengers will tell you they are a dying breed. The number of messengers in Seattle has shrunk to 1/3 of it’s size 10 years ago. The number of jobs is shrinking, the clients going away.

Our legs, the fastest way through town, still aren’t fast enough. Our muscle, dirt, grime, sweat, blood, and smells are being replaced by a series of 0’s and 1’s.

So what are we doing about it?

Some messengers have wised up, moved on, passed away, changed, left, come back, stayed, traveled, saw, touched, felt, breathed, experienced, lived. Some have stayed exactly where they want to be. Right where they are. Where do you want to be?

I’ve been right where I wanted to be for the last 4 years.

11 countries, 4 continents, home.

These guys are where they want to be too:

Cool shit

Who needs legal documents, deadlines, court clerks, clients lunch, multi million dollar checks, useless copies of the same document? Strap on a trailer and haul something different.

Right on

Where do you want to be?
