    Johnboys wishlist before retiring from Abilene……….

    1) hold those accountable for not reporting equipment damage, either picked up with damage or did the damage themselves and hold those accountable for not taking care of equipment repairs when in their possession.

    2-5………see number one.

    Question. I’ve been smelling what I think is my DEF system. It’s not a battery smell or anything. It’s unfamiliar to me, but it’s right where you put the DEF in. It started 2 days ago and has gotten progressively worse. Anybody have a clue as to what it might be? Unsafe to drive? Can it wait until I get back to RVA next week for home time?

    Dropped my loaded trailer at Orly Rd In Indy. Got a call from the load planner this morning wanting to know if I wanted the two stop Oregon Boars Head. In my most sarcastic response, I told him absolutely, only if you promise me this will be the last time I see it until the winter. He laughed, I was dead serious. Ran that last winter about 8 times from November until March, haven’t seen this load once this summer. I’m thinking they’re getting ready for the fair weather runners to return south.

    No. It’s an entirely different smell.
