    Read the past threads on here to find out what the day to day ops are like here.
    Being in the shop means 3 to 5 days stuck at the yard.no hotel unless the truck is
    IN the shop and it may or may not get fixed correctly. My own fm has me get stuff fixed
    while otr at TAs and such.

    Spending quality time in Dickinson,ND after del here late yesterday. I guess it didn't occur to CSR to book something on Friday knowing I'd be empty here this morning. That's SOP at Arnold GP CSR.
    It's good to see the local economy booming due to the oil biz.

    Figured I'll contribute here again.

    Sitting in OKC today. Knocked out 677 miles. Picked up yesterday in Columbus, GA heading to Bakersfield, CA.

    I've been transfered out to Grand Prairie in light of US Xpress acquisition of Arnolds SE operations.

    So far it hasn't. I asked specifically about it and was told they're keeping some southeast lanes to get us guys home.

    FYI:there is an Arnold and C&C trailer I saw today at a Fedex yard on I-84 x179 in OR. I guess USX snatched them?

    They probably borrowed one of our trailers the same we borrow theirs. I seen one of our trailers at a USX customer in Sumner, Washington back in March. My wife and I took a USX load there from Pennsylvania

    I'm pretty impressed with the new pay package going into effect next week. They're paying a very decent cpm now
