    Yea, It's been over six months since I went to Prime and got ticked off becasue I didn't like what the doctor asked me to do. I am over it. I did go back to SRT and must say they have gone e-logs so I don't have to worry about keeping up two log books any-more and being tired all the time, LOL.

    I want you to know. It was never my intention to direct ill towards you or any Prime drivers, my way of expressing discontent with the Sleep Test may have seemed a bit arrogant, if you were offended, please don't take it personally. Whether we haul a reefer for SRT or Prime or any other company, we must remember that health is an issue. We all should face up to the challenge to stay fit. If we don't have good health, driving a truck for a living will soon come to an end. :biggrin_25514:

    How are you liking the E-logs? I love em.

    My FM never tried to get me to cheat on paper, though their were a few night guys who would call me up with a "hot" or distressed load and beat around the bush about "making it work". Those were very rare. Now, the only time I get woken up is if I can actually help, cuz the guy has all my log info in front of him.

    Its good to hear that you've put that behind ya!

    For a long time, the only folks who could get away with posting anything about Prime were putting up total garbage about the carrier. If you posted a positive opinion, the thread got toxic within minutes. I suppose I do appear a bit outspoken about them - LOL!

    Anyway, glad you're doing well at SRT. Be Safe!

    Thanks , I appreciate the replies. And to answer U2's Question. There was an adjustment on my driving habits the first 2 weeks. As I got use to the MCP200 HOS App, I found it very user friendly and much easier than doing a paperlog. Many of the Drivers out here agree its better not having to maintain Daily Logs and they too are getting better quality rest breaks (10) when on the truck. The only ones complaining were the ones not using them.. point being don't knock it until you've tried it. :)

    There's a number of Prime guys who have been asked to do a sleep test. I understand that everyone starting at Marten is required to take one now - whether you meet the medical diagnosis requirements or not.

    Pretty soon there'll be no more drivers to do anything the way there going that'll really help the economy along won't it?
