    Down in Missippi and up to no good. The trailer I picked up yesterday had a bad upper light. So, burned 3.5 hours at a T/A.

    The light was perfectly good. The light was not getting a ground connection due to trailer repair materials in the way.

    Bottom line, the slacker that fixed the trailer cost me money today. Some number of slacker drivers also cost me money since I bet more than one slacker steering wheel holding, scum sucking, lower than whale poop driver pulled that trailer between the crappy repair job and now.

    The good news is slackers don't last and I'm still around.

    Report it to dispatch so they question the previous driver.. this has happened to me 2 or 3 times the last year. Very frustrating for sure. Especially if your clock was already started...

    I am in a rest area, .5 miles from snow shoe PA. Heading for Canaan CT. Already have a pre plan to dead head 70 miles to hokeytown( or some #### like that) MA then going to Akron IN.

    The guy complaining about Conway/CFI starving us. I don't know what you're talking about . 4000 miles my first two weeks . Then only 2k my third week.but that was because of losing miles to getting back to Joplin for my upgrade and 3000 miles this week on a week that didn't even start until Tuesday .

    rebuilt apu and reinstalled. quite the pain in the ### i might add. bypass filter hoses pressure tested and installed. dead battery apu switch installed, tested and mounted. looks like a tuesday departure unless the Michelob or guava juice interfere. already told joplin to get me rolling coast to coast next week.

    Split Sleeper has its place. Pretty technical, to much to type. Call me tomorrow during the daytime, I'll put my number in your pm.
