    Yeah, I had the fleeting vision of the call I'd have gotten from dispatch. The headset would probably melt to my ear from the heat.

    Honestly though, I'd probably pay for it out of pocket once just to be able to get pics of the truck on a barge going across rhe water, and to be able to experience it, but they don't allow them.

    I did. Yesterday as a matter of fact. Met with a lot of folks here at BRF. Just another feather in the headband of why I like Millis.

    First up I met with Mark, Kat and Peggie as Dan was out for lunch. Kat brought up the video that I tripped the 2nd time it happened. Funny looking at myself driving but you could hear the alarms and warnings going off. I dropped a few f bombs and was somewhat embarrassed whilst Kat and I were watching the video. She just laughed.

    Went back to my truck and Dan messaged a few mins later that he was in. We met, reviewed the video and talked. All in all it was the outcome I expected. Dan said 3 other drivers have reported the same thing, KW knows about this and is working on a software patch. His advice was what I would do anyway,,, that is get to an exit, clean the cover of the radar unit and continue on as safely as possible. Yes, snow pack is the problem.

    Had I not met with safety in person and see the look if concern on their faces I would have thought I was being blown off. Not the case here. No, there is not a solution to the problem but I trust it's being attended to.

    When I tested out last Summer here at BRF, my dispatcher William and my trainer Rodney took me to lunch at RePetes. Well, I took William to lunch yesterday and we had a really cool and informative lunch. William has been here 12 years. Heck, he doesn't look a day over 30. Lol,,, really cool dispatcher. He keeps me rollin'.

    After lunch I met with Ethan, another cool guy, who did my 2017 income taxes for me.

    Suffice it to say, I've had a very nice visit to corporate in BRF. To @Suspect Zero you want an Oreo little boy?
     
    Suspect Zero and JOHNQPUBLIC Thank this.

    Just needed a couple days off, not rolling,
    And around peeps that don't know me. Just kinda do my thing ya know?

    Black River Falls is the perfect place to do that. With that said, I'm seriously considering making central WI my home domicile. 4 seasons, hunting, fishing, hiking, snow machine Mecca and the Friday night fish fry.

    Again I'm in the planning stages of this. I want to buy a place close by that I can park a couple of trucks and trailers.

    Any drivers out here that want to split the rent?

    Lol, right. Piss on that. As long as drivers keep putting up with all the bs these companies pull, nothing will ever change.
