    When I type in "@Chinatown" on Google, Chinatown Market keeps popping up. Is there a better google address, please?

    So you don't think he should've stopped to check his load? If there was a developing problem (such as excessive heat, dehydration, etc...), he'd want to know in order to rectify it ASAP. You can't just hammer down and hope everything will be OK with the critters.

    The thing I’ve learned about this forum is that the ones who’ve never hauled a load of livestock in their life sure like to talk about how the ones that are doing it are doing it wrong. Personally, I get a kick out of how dumb they make themselves look.

    Checking on livestock is part of the job. Because dead stock is worthless.
    @Chinatown can help.
    If husband has been trucking for 23 years he should know how to work as a 1099 private contractor. That may be the only way to continue right now.
    You did not say if husband was local or OTR driver type.
