    No. You will donate your time, and equipment to help our great nation overcome this potential national disaster, and we will thank you.

    The last pilot I fueled up at in Clovis NM had the most spotless keypads at the pumps I've seen in my entire life. Apparently somebody had them all wiped down and shined up with something like tire shine lol. Hopefully they also sanitized them. I use gloves when fueling anyway because I see that most of the other drivers don't even wash their hands after wiping their ### in the restroom.

    I drove from Texas to Phoenix on US 60/87 because I like to take the scenic route instead of boring old I 40.

    I don't see why some think they will get stuck in some closed city. They would not stop the trucks because everyone need stuff. This is not China, if anything they might stop the HOS rules when Hurricane hits if it actually gets bad. I don't think it will make a big impact. People are over reacting.

    Their is a Toilet Paper factory in PA let see how many loads my company sends me their to pickup. I haven't been their in like 2 years and just drove empty by the place the other day because they sent me empty 450 miles. I guess the TP loads don't pay much yet

    Australian TP plants shifted to 24/7 production, three shifts just recently. Probably with some reluctance.

    Why are Australians wiping so much and do they wrap their whole hand like a catchers mit? I go through 1 roll every 3 weeks but they are saying a family uses 10 rolls a week. That is absolutely rediculous

    Its the panic buying.
