    Im just glad I did not have to. Trailer was planted nicely back there. It was powder that day. More of a breaking traction problem than anything really. I was trapped in a RPM block of about oh... 1300 to 1450, anything less skidded the drives stalling and anything more spun them in that stuff. Once over the top then I could drag em down to 1200 and waited to hit the bottom.

    It says right in the exemption that products are coming from various locations in Oregon so it’s likely being hauled by companies that won’t leave OR anyway. Sounds like it’s mostly the guys running from the dc’s to the stores.

    Do you expect the mouth breathing cattle haulers to take advantage since they are hauling perishable food? During the next few days, will the lifting of the HOS kill thousands, tens of thousands, or every living person in Oregon due to trucking accidents?

    actually they do not have any authority to do that on any interstate trucks or any load or part there of that originated or destined in another state it's up to federal government and you could be ticketed in the next state for hos violation or during a federal audit of your logs ........ I would suggest they will just have to get by on there Starbucks until it melts

    Yeah it was nice time. Was on my way back after unloading in 11 hours violation . Wendover scale officer put me OOS because I was empty and in his interpretation exempt was for small home delivery trucks only. 15 minutes later after my call to dispatch I'm OOS for 10 hours and another driver can go home instead of drive for the load someone did call from State office to free me immediately.
