    ####, I cannot stand it when the Photographer technically takes a PERFECT picture of a big rig, only to see it tell me stories of rubbing steers 10 times from the wrong date tearing of the tires.

    And what's with Planet Orange inside the truck. This is not Holland....

    In all my year's in dealing directly with shippers and receivers I have only ran across a handful that wanted to see where I was.

    If you run a 1000 miles and you have 15 feet to pick up something extra along the way, is that any of the broker's business? I think that's what the tracking is all about

    The ones I hate. Do battle into NE, come out of NE all night and rest of today, pull into the Somerset Truckstop west of the Toll Pike on I-70 as the crow flies.

    Pass out into bed. last prayer sent to God thanking him and angels for not hurting people killing anyone and so on with the epic run.

    16 hours later, go to counter get a epic meal, work on it carefully with much fluids. Take care of one self where possible

    18 hours later drop into the drivers seat. Qualcomm is going crazy. Still two days to deliver.

    Hewwo?

    YOU. Have. Been. There. 18. Hours. As if it was some how a great sin committed against mankind in some way.

    Explain yourself.

    Certainly. Three logbooks, 2000 miles since the Georgia to CT run and back out to here gunning for Iowa at some point in the future when we get there. hit send.

    That is not acceptable driver. You have been sitting there 18 hours. Explain yourself

    Now I know I am dealing with a higher functioning savant on his precious computer. I wrap satellite keyboard and it's speaker into a duffel with lots of sound proofing in it for that purpose.

    Half tanks to Des Moines, two packs of smokes due in 17 hours now. Time to go.

    Keep in mind i Only need about 13 hours of the upcoming 17 hours and ticking so precious to dispatch. tic toc tic toc
