    This is nothing new. We've had loaded trucks parked in the yard just disappear even with a security guard at the gate. Sometimes they find the truck empty and sometimes they know it went to Mexico. It doesn't happen very often but it does happen.

    That's why I'm glad I'm in North Dakota.

    I'm not afraid to throw chains, but I object to a gun in my face. For some reason, southerners seem to be the other way around.

    LOL BROKE.. These jackwagons aren't broke just crooked.. They have more money than they know what to do with.. The key to greatwide is they want you to do your job for nothing and you go broke. That bankruptcy was a joke it was a "tactic" to get out of debt and emerge stronger... All GW can say they are is a bunch of crooks..

    You are 100% correct. I meant they went bankrupt. Cobbed all their creditors. Greatwide Mavis was their OD and heavy haul some yrs ago. We pulled some loads for them and had no problems. Talked to drivers hauling WalMart junk out of Cleburne for .78 a mile and a few bucks to unload.:biggrin_2559: Let the illegals have that garbage.
