    I wish you and some of the others would write how much of an easy going, understanding and team player I am. That I only get ill and abusive when I don’t get things my way.

    I’ve loaded east of there in Ontario Oregon, I’ve loaded down in California, and I’ve loaded in and around I-5 in Oregon. There’s really no telling. I’ve done resets but told them I was going back to a truckstop on 5. I’ve bothered them to no end to make sure I had a preplan going from the first drop to the second. Most times on my way over I’ve got my reload. The west coast planner, Daniel, is pretty good knowing there’s nothing out by Sisters and usually has a preplan based on whether you need a reset or not. Start burning up the phone while your getting empty at Tualatin.

    FYI, whether you’re first at Tualatin or not, the Grassmid truck that’s also delivering there on Monday morning always gets empty first, he has product on his trailer that they put on yours to bring over to Sisters. I always stop and grab a coffee at one on the truckstops before Salem. 26 turns into a 2 lane twisty road up and over Santiam Pass. I make sure I do that during daylight. Your GPS will get you right to Sisters. The street is a cul-de-sac that you back off of into their driveway. Very easy. When you’re done, go left and get turned around in the cul de sac, can’t turn right out of their little facility without tearing trees and bushes down or dragging the big rock with you.

    I was driving through there Wednesday night and got a notification popup on my phone about how I was no longer allowed outside because of a curfew at 10pm (lol). I even got one for a town outside of the city area, Dayton Minnesota.

    Nobody stopped me from driving and I made it to sleep at the consignee. I had no idea anything was going on there, just heard about the trial.
     
    Barn Door Bill, Lonesome and JohnBoy Thank this.

    I should have been up there with you. My wife and I were out doing errands and got caught up in a road rage incident as spectators. 2 old retirees screaming and cursing at each other then slamming doors and chasing each other around their cars. I thought it was hysterical, my wife was upset thinking one or both were going to stoke out.
