    To avoid Wyoming I run 70-74-80-380-20-29-90-212-90-395-84-5 to Tualatin. Then from Tualatin to Sisters 5-22. It’s 42 miles longer this way, but a lot easier on your nerves.

    If Wyoming is ok then I run 70-74-72-36-29-2-80-84-5

    They’ll never have to worry about me using that crap hole. I’ve been there enough and see what they hire. I wouldn’t even want to empty my piss jug on their property.

    Really? I get the not using their facility, but since we drop trls there, we should be able to park there.

    Sure wouldn't mind someone from the office running this down for clarification. ####ty as the place is, I don't want to to go counting on the stops in Ontario when the planners have me picking up at the port at 1700 on a weekday.

    Pick up a gatorade load outta Indy and paperwork says 43k, scale it and it actually around 45k....at I figured out a pattern though, they load heavy in the rear. Newer trailers about the 16 hole is where weights are good and older trailers around 25-26 hole weights are good, if they got the weight correct on paperwork that is.....
     
    Lonesome and Finfn1372 Thank this.

    Ive never has anyone say anything cuz I always park there when I can't make it to Barstow. Maybe they just don't like us parking in the bobtail section and using facilities.
     
    Barn Door Bill Thanks this.

    Home since yesterday early AM. I’ve been patiently waiting on the introduction phone call from my 15th DM. Nothing. Wonder if I’ll be assigned a new meat in the seat DM before leaving next Wednesday.

    That’s why I post it, they do read this. At least if the new guy reads this, everyone will be on the same page. Lol
