Oh me, oh my! Just pinch me! What in the world could I possibly be so excited about? A huge promotion, winning the lottery, getting a brand new car?! Nope. None of those things. It starts with an R and ends in a Baby... That's right... the ROYAL BABY!!!
If you're one of our loyal Dallas Courier blog readers, then you know our team boasts a wide variety of interests. That's precisely what makes our blog a fun read - we blog about everything from historical events like the Bush Center opening to crawfish boils to the Texas Rangers. Are our blogs random, you ask? Nope. Let me tell you why. Our blog post ideas come courtesy of our different delivery specialty teams. You see, when a courier delivers the same commodity over and over again, he or she naturally becomes passionate about the industry they serve.
I just got finished with a weekend in the city of brotherly love. That’s right, this Texas girl headed North for along weekend in Philadelphia. And I must say, it was quite the city. If you haven’t been, it officially has my stamp of approval. I often write about Texas cities and tourism tips, but it isn’t often I write about the farther away places. It always makes sense for our blog for Texas travel tips because we handle Dallas to Austin deliveries, Dallas to San Antonio deliveries, Dallas to Houston deliveries and even out of state deliveries like Dallas to Oklahoma City deliveries.
Downtown Dallas is approximately 200 miles from Downtown Austin. Therefore, a round trip is approximately 400 miles.
Now, knowing that rough calculation, what would you say if I told you the following: "I've driven to Austin and back to Dallas 7,500 times... IN THE SAME CAR."
What happens if I take that number, 7,500, and put it into miles. If you traveled from Dallas to Austin and back 7,500 times, you would have traveled 3,000,000 miles. Yes, you read that correctly: three million miles. That's a lot of ground to cover. Now remember, I said that the three million miles were all completed in the same car.
Remember the days of hand-operated car windows? Remember the days of tape players? Remember the days of turning a key to start your car? Remember the days of regular, old fashioned radio (before the advent of XM & Sirius)? Remember the days of touch-screenless cars? Remember the days when you you turned around to check your blindspots (now cars beep at you if an object is in your blindspot)? Remember parallel parking without computer assistance? Remember reversing without a back-up camera? Remember the days of not having a cell phone in your car? Remember the days of Mapscos, not GPS units? Remember the days of cars that didn't fly?
Common misconception: Dallas Courier only makes Dallas/Fort Worth deliveries.
In working for a Dallas courier company, I hear about driving all day long. I know the traffic ebb and flow thanks to our fabulous dispatchers. I hear about road construction, best gas prices, good driving snacks, best routes and much more.
Choices. We face them each and every day. Some decisions are fairly insignificant: Should I eat cereal or oatmeal for breakfast? Black shoes or purple? Morning talk show or music? To DVR or not to DVR? 2% milk or skim? Brush teeth or don’t brush teeth? I kid, I kid! Brushing your teeth is NOT a decision. You must do that.
With all this Mavs excitement, it got me to thinking: how are the Mavericks like our Dallas couriers? How does the best team in all of basketball compare to what I believe to be the best courier company in all of Dallas? Well, check out what I believe makes the Mavs and Dallas Courier winning teams:
It’s a good day to be a Mavs fan!
