    Belt tightening? Mismatched drive tires is something I never saw on FCC trucks when I was there.

    Just talked to my dispatcher about switching over to SWR. I think I would be a lot more productive on that fleet since I live right on one of their major lanes.

    I've had the same issue OTR at FCC that I did with Magnum, in that I schedule for 3 or 4 days off and end up having 6 or 7 days off. So during a given month I end up with somewhere between 7-10 days at home. While great from a personal and life standpoint, isn't so great from a mileage, pay, and productivity standpoint.

    Right now since I started, I'm averaging just under 2,300 paid miles a week, including hometime, which isn't great. I know I lose the .06 cpm OTR bonus, but I think I'll be able to make the difference up from increased productivity on the other fleet.

    There's also the reason that I originally was going to apply for SWR before talking myself out of it and applying for all 48.

    Tim said he would talk to Erik to make sure it's okay and get back to me. Tim is mainly an SWR dispatcher too so I wouldn't have to move to another person's board.

    Welcome aboard in advance brother! You should do well on this fleet. And you'll definitely get home a lot more often. You'll probably be able to take a 10 at home during the week a fair amount. Keep us posted

    Accidentally fell asleep and my roommate called me asking where I was at. Genuinely had to rack my brain for a few seconds to remember where in the world I had parked.

    Dropping this tomorrow morning in Four Oaks, then reloading with a broker load from Statesville, NC going back to the Omaha area for a noon delivery Friday. It'll be tight but I should be able to get there in time.

    I couldn't find much info about the shipper but I'll arrive early and see what's up. I'll see if I can't get to Knoxville tomorrow evening if everything goes well. The TA and Petro near the 40/75 split doesn't fill up that quickly.

    Had a fuel stop here and the pump I pulled up to had a broken satellite pump, or rather someone took off with the nozzle. I topped off my left tank, but my right one only has 65-70 gallons in it. Will I run into any issues running my truck like this? My next fuel stop is in Ina, IL.

    As long as you're crossover lines aren't plugged up, ya should be fine. Just don't run it too low. I'd stop when you can and throw 50 gal in that tank, just let your DM know what's going on and it won't count against you on the fuel solution stuff.

    Biggest issue is that's the tank you're APU feeds off of. If that tank gets too low it'll loose it prime and not start
