    I was talking to one of the cubicle monkeys, he's actually cool, he mentioned there was an O/O getting repairs done to lease on. Spent 16 data in the hotel, they kept asking if they wanted to get him home and he kept telling them he was happy in the hotel and he would wait.

    Not a mega....my company is a out 200 trucks. Big enough to have fire power, but small enough to where people get to know you.

    KAG has a well earned reputation. Maybe not a good reputation but it is definitely well earned.

    Anything connected and the driver remains there. Not in the store or even in the cab.
    They had a safety guy randomly watching drivers for awhile and something like this they would take the keys and call for a taxi to take you to your car so you could leave.

    The jet fuel rates are about as bad as containers now. I don't know how they're doing it.

    I recently talked to Valley Pacific Petroleum who just bought out Cross Petroleum. They wanted to start me out on a bobtail hauling heating oil around the northstate. if I didn't want to run a semi, it might not be terrible..

    They bought out most of Renner's operation on the coast, too.
    I noticed almost all of Renner's guys stayed so maybe they're okay to work for.

    They seem like they are pretty decent. I just wish it was not a bobtail position. They pay OT, which was surprising to see for a fuel hauler.
