    I haven't been on in awhile, as far as training, it's a cakewalk. You should be in a truck within a week no questions asked. What is your home location? I can tell you more about where you may be hauling out of.

    I didn't see your truck in the shopping center all last week. Are you part of the crew that volunteered to go to La and pull some of the Cajun chips?

    I am also beginning to see several daycabs parked in the Wicksburg-area. Just an observation.

    Oh yep I've been in hiding mostly, been parking at the house lately. No ragin' cajun chips for me, though I did volunteer. Been undergoing some changes lately mainly office folks, can't say I agree or disagree. Although whatever happens is out of my hands. I will say I'm highly considering other options due to cutbacks. My sweet Cedar Springs run was paid both ways and now I lost half of it. And with new HOS rule I can't make it back home after an Elba load. Those day cabs out of Wicksburg are the Keith boys, now that they have went flatbed, I am the solo man out of Cedar Springs.
     
    88 Alpha Thanks this.
