    Thanks. The payroll problem hit me also last week. I filled out all required forms for vacation and guess what? no check in the account. I hope this new payroll woman cleans up these issues. I need to call Louie and check in. I'm hoping for one more day off. I'll call you during the week Todd.

    Well it has happened, I have to go back to work in the morning. I got my dispatch late today and need to load in Jacksonville tomorrow for a load going to Charlotte NC for Wed. I then have a drop and hook in NC for a load going to Connecticut for Thursday, then onto the yard for a west coast trip. Back to the real world!

    just wanted to say it was good working/meeting you all due to some problems with miles and the shop i decided it was best to walk away.. in 2 days i ran 200 miles not really good for my pocket then sat all day for info on a load i was going to get and never got that load so would have been 200 miles in 60 hours.. then as some of you know the steering fell out of my truck last week and nothing was done as far as discipline to the mechanic that didnt do his job correctly .. i lost 2 days worth of pay and he lost nothing.. johnboy would have talked to you a bit but just wanted to get out of there. i am not sure what has happened in the last month but since i raised some questions about matters with the shop i have been dropping in miles every week,,, best of luck to you all and hope we keep in touch

    is Jrotra, the driver out of Inverness still employed with Calex? Haven't heard a thing from him since he started with you guys, that can be a good or a bad thing, maybe they're running him hard, or maybe he didn't stick around. Either way just looking for an update.

    This kind of stuff happens with smaller companies. I didn't stay long with these guys for safety concerns. I did not like the safety department at all.
