  1. Absolutely fascinating Matt. They say variety is the spice of life and you certainly get plenty of that. No wonder you’re always smiling!

  2. Hi Matt,
    Have you ever refused a piece of cargo even if it was within the weight and size limit?

      Leaky fuel drums are about the only thing I’ve had to refuse on occasion. There’s also times I’ve had to remind police/army guys to unload their guns before getting on board. Other than that, as they say about the Porter, “if it fits, it flies!”.
