  1. out here in the Georgia sticks outside of Atlanta by about an hour on the other side of Covington sits social Circle Georgia..
    originally a Solo cup distribution facility when it opened up cholo of course bought out by dart container is a tired to find but once you get there slow to unload slow to reload but allowing you to if you want need a break or come back before they close at night the spotter will move your trailer out of a dock if they need it.
    but the nice thing once you go back to Interstate 20 Madison Georgia was only about 20 minutes away most companies you have enough personal conveyance time you can go up there and the TA in the pilot is there and a whole lot of other things such as Walmart and restaurants and is you're bobtailing you don't have to worry about dragging the trailer..
    they have vending machines but they'll also call you let you know when your load is either ready or your unloaded if they say we're running behind and it could be quite a few hours at least a nice thing is you can leave your not a prisoner like at Walmart where you can't leave if it's going to be 8 hours or just going to sit there for 8 hours at Walmart what is what is a joke...
    but if you ever have to go into the old social Circle Georgia and you can find the dart container formerly Solo cup it's also a terminal for the dedicated people of calling they have a terminal on one side of the building but it's a good place as far as being driver friendly with facilities and the freedom to come and go

    Don’t forget Monroe GA !!! Nice little town maybe twice the size of Madison about another 8 miles down the road from Social Circle. It’s nice to park your truck at either the TA or the Pilot or now there is enough parking across the street from that truck wash lube place to park maybe 40 or 50 more trucks now that they torn down the gas station that used to be there and walk down to downtown Madison. There is a couple of nice restaurants there. I pulled for Cowan out of that Dart Solo cup for a couple months , Cowan and Dart Solo cup were nice to work with but on the other end .... 10 hour live unloads almost all the time !!!! That’s why I was only there for a couple months.
     
  3. yeah until we lost the contract about 2 yrs ago we were pulling for dart container Solo ..originally was only did Solo. Chicago area or champaign plants.. then we had the dart go out of Dallas Texas over the social Circle right when they first got bought out..
    then things kind of went South we were doing mainly interplant movements and then we started doing grocery loads and that's when it really started to suck I don't know how many times I get stuck at psycho foods and either Calera Alabama or Indianapolis.
    or a little short rides over the US foods in Wendell North Carolina or Lexington South Carolina cuz that's one of the areas we do a lot of freight at..and yep Manny many hours it was no touch but after you sleep 7 hours and they're still unloading gets a little tedious after awhile LOL..
    but I did remember how nice that the girls treated you at social Circle they welcome to there and they didn't make you feel like an outcast of spotter would help you out they were really cool
    enjoyed going in there that it was nice to even before he logs of course to go wind around sightseeing anywhere you wanted to back then....
    but you're right about Monroe nice little classic southern Georgia town if ya can get in there with the bobtail there are some nice little home cookin kinda cafes..
