    I had the blueberry moonshine and the dark mustard. They also have a rootbeer reduction an a Carolina bbq sauce as well. The blueberry moonshine is wicked awesome.

    If ya ever get thru the Peoria area you'll need to try the place. You won't be disappointed. It's called country club bbq on Farmington Rd. Ya can park in the truck parking at mcdonalds off I-474 in bartonville an grab a taxi or uber to it.

    Goodyear’s. Our shop doesn’t balance them frequently enough so they wear out faster.

    They use 2 different brands. I believe the ones i just had put on are Goodyear Endurance. I think they've also used BF Goodrich in the past as well. Like i said before though they don't balance them when they 1st put em on. Even when the trucks come new from volvo they aren't balanced. Cuz always between 10 an 15k ya start getting front end vibration and their 1st fix is always to balance them. Next is to run the alignment. By then the tires are already worn a certain way an even tho they are balanced they just keep wearing the same way. Generally they always wear off the inner or outer shoulders.

    I didn't know they used the BFGs on the steers. I only saw them on the last wave of trailers they bought. Of all the American tire brands, Goodyear I think wears the fastest when it comes to steers. I've never gone through this many sets of steers ever.

    I'm down here loading up in Bradenton, FL for Moberly. On the way up, I'll be picking up a new hire and bringing him to Union for orientation. He lives in Dothan, AL. I will probably reset there because my hrs are getting close. This Tropicana warehouse takes some time loading definitely. 4½ hrs later. To be fair, I was running a ½ hr behind my appt time.

    I gotta question for ya: Robert loaded 200 bucks on my fuel card to get us a motel room tomorrow night. Can you swipe the fuel card at the hotels? Or would I need to get the cash off the card when I fuel? I'm uncertain because I don't think you can pay with cash at most motels anymore, and it's been a long time since I've done this..

    I would think that you would have to get the money off of the card at a fuel stop. Wouldn't think ya be able to use comdata card at a motel
    Call the motel an find out for sure an if not make sure they take cash.
