    Dropped Wilmington IL. Rec'd the planned trailer message (oldest trailer in the yard). Found it and it had been red tagged. Previous driver had taken the time to list all the defects and when road service was coming to fix it. Thank you mystery driver!

    Going Franklin Park to Laredo.

    I almost forgot, when you drive into the chicken ranch, they spray the whole truck down with a disinfectant to kill bird flu. Windows and mirrors and paint have a dull finish from it to complemetc the mud on the lower half...another facepalm moment...

    Has anyone ever had the company put them up in a hotel near the Wilmer yard, Wife and I are gonna be doing orientation there and I'm not quite sure where they put the drivers up at? Not a huge deal, just kinda curious what to expect.

    One isle is tight but if you go around the next one plenty wide.

    At my last job as a mechanic in a leasing division we leased to Case Farms , which is a chicken producer . That chicken #### would mix with the mud and literally turn to like concrete when it dried up . Played havoc in the drive train and brake drums
