    Yep. I’ve swept many a trailer for them that had been dropped there or I’ve had to take there.

    This broker load is the worst.

    Sat 4 1/2 hrs at a door,just to get caught up in the LA traffic.

    Over 4 hrs just to get to Barstow,120 miles away.

    Happens to me all the time on broker loads out of there during the day, but that is LA for you though. Id rather be there than east coast any day though.

And thanks to whoever dropped it, that one caused me to not be getting home until way late tonight when I actually needed to be home by 5. Happy Valentines Day to me. Hmph. {heavy sarcasm}

    @JohnBoy ... what is the status of that trailer inspection lane coming to RVA to address these issues??? Last I heard it was coming... but that was last summer or so... Did those plans get the Axe???[/QUOTE]

    Great question, one I have absolutely zero knowledge of. Me’s thinking they’re busy with the revolving door in operations.

    I have never stopped at a casino for the day.
    Those every casino offer free parking?

    Depends on the casino. Most of the ones directly off I-40 have truck parking.

    @JohnBoy
    Hey wasn't yesterday someone's birthday? Or was that the 13th?
    (I'm lost).
    Happy birthday John! And anniversary right?
    If not I'm really lost and everyone can have a good morning laugh on me!:D
     
    Lonesome, Finfn1372 and MACK E-6 Thank this.
