    Good. More for me. In fact I recommend everyone heed your advice and stay far, far away. Except @Jaebo74 of course. He has an open appointment for suicide by ripper.

    Jersey does pork roll pretty good too. That and when you get a large Italian sub you can hardly eat half of it before your stuffed. Not that subway bs

    I had the best Roadcheck week ever, got back to Denver at 6 pm on Monday, had 5 hrs left on my 70, already planned to take Tuesday off. 9 am on Tuesday, I started puking violently, did it randomly for the next 3 hours, almost passed out twice. Wife rushed me to the Dr., who almost sent me to the ER when I blacked in front of him, they aren't 100% positive until more tests are done, but looks a diabetic gastroparesis, basically, my body is not properly processing the food I eat. Spent next 2 days in bed. I'm now on a borderline liquid diet, the upside, no inspections.

    In Colorado, it is legal to drive naked, it is illegal to drive without shoes on.

    Colorado has signs on the door you must wear one, if you don't you put your paperwork on the desk and stand in the outer lobby. Few weeks back, NB 25 scale in Cheyenne had a sign that if you didn't have a mask, leave your paperwork on the desk and stand outside. There were 10 drivers standing outside shivering, the scale guy came out without a mask on to hand us our paperwork

    That happens to me if I eat something with real butter or olive oil in it .

    diarrhea vomiting and intermittent blackouts.
    Along with plenty of very painful cramps etc .

    Hot peppermint tea helps
    Along with Imodium and oddly, lifesavers candy or Vitamin C cough drops
     
    slow.rider Thanks this.
