Low Blog Volume

I notice that since TTR changed up there seems to be a low turn out on the blogs. They admins said they relocated the buttons because it was in the way and not many people used the blogs. Well, it seems that hiding the button at the bottom of the page has discouraged fewer people to use it. Shame, cause I got a release from the blog.
Recently I picked up a trailer that had a bad slick spot on it. I picked up my load and headed to WingFoot at an FJ. They were completely out of Schneider tires. They directed me to another WF a few miles away that was on my route.
I got parked and checked in and went back to the rig. A few minutes later a saw in the mirror a couple guys standing near the back of the trailer, so I went to join them. One guy disappeared before I got there and the other was sitting down talking on his phone.
As I approached he asked, "Are you with Schneider?"
"Dang, nothing gets by you, Slick? What tipped you off; my Schneider hat or that I just got out of the Schneider truck? Or did you just put two and two together?
You should start a private detective agency. Call it something catchy like 'Diamond Dix Detection' or 'Irritable Ike's Investigations' or something cool like that."
They were only half as slow as the WF I go to at the J.
Below is a couple pics I found. First one happened in Oregon at a paper mill (according to the post where I found it.) He detached his trailer but didn't pull far enough off of the dump ramp.
And of course in this shot we simply have an insecure load. Someone pulled them over and gave them a hug and they felt a lil more secure after that.
