    Thanks, no you may be thinking of Supersnackbar. We are both old miserable truck drivers.

    So I left Richmond town this morning at 0300 to beat D.C. and Baltimore traffic, made it up to Havre de Grace, Md and dropped, and grabbed an empty. Got a broker load out of Philadelphia going back to Fremont, Nebraska for anytime Thursday. Made it up to the customer with no real issues or traffic, in and out in under two hours. Made it to Somerset, Pa. and will roll out about 0300 tomorrow. They grease and lube the trucks here every 8k miles, so when I deliver Thursday I will be 1k miles over due for a service. Get that taken care of and hopefully head West for the Weekend.
     
    Rocks Thanks this.

    Got unloaded in Fremont this morning, went over to the terminal to get the truck serviced and do laundry. Got a load from Omaha to Ontario, California for Monday morning. I am recapping and my hours over the next two days really suck, so I ran down to Omaha grabbed my pre loaded trailer and came over to our new terminal in Council Bluffs. I'm going to squeeze in a reset here, and roll out Saturday morning about 0200.

    I actually prefer to start my days about 0200 or 0300, I get 3 to 4 hours of hardly any traffic, and shut down early without worrying about finding a place to park.
     
    TokyoJoe, Rocks, JohnBoy and 1 other person Thank this.

    Small family atmosphere, treated with the utmost respect, they keep me moving, have well maintained equipment, and I like they're running lanes. Over 2/3 of the drivers here are O/O or L/P, talking with some O/O's over the last few months they all have said they like they pay, running lanes, lack of micro management, and the fuel discount program, some times they are paying up to .43 off the pump price. When I worked at Cheeseman I really had no complaints, but they ran too much North East for my liking.
