Mailbox

Bloomberg has an interesting read from Oklahoma, following the story of Jim Ed Bull, a postal worker with the longest route in the country – a staggering 187.6 miles. For reference, that’s like driving from the far northern side of Detroit to the far eastern side of Cleveland every day just to deliver the mail. Bull does this five times per week.

And while the story might not be hugely focused on cars, aside from Bull’s Ford Ranger and his ability to drive entirely with the left side of his body while working mailboxes with his right hand, it’s quite an interesting story in and of itself.

Head over to Bloomberg for the full read on what keeps this Sooner going.
