    About 4.39/mile on 892 miles.
    Definitely not the typical step rate.
    Not even as OS. I've had a few better runs.
    Like you I'm always looking for cross compatible freight.

    I don’t care if every state in this fine nation didn’t mention it -

    I will.

    That’s the daintiest blouse wearing girliest sign I ever saw in my life.

    Now shell out some of them RGN $$ and buy a MAN sign!

    :)

    Right. That's another case of safety guys not actually knowing the osha regulation they are citing. The osha reg states no one is to be more than 4 feet of the ground with out fall restraint. And in the same regulation it specific exempts loading and unloading of trucks due to the impracticality of a transport company carrying an over head crane for hooking fall restraint gear to.

    Look at your permits. They give specific size requirements for oversize banners. You got the small ones for pilot cars.

    You know eventually the right one is gonna light you up over that. These are things that reading the permits, the provisions and doing what they say will make you or break you. Just because you've been doing something for 6 months and haven't been caught doesn't make it correct or legal.

    So NE and KS are the only ones on that trip that requires a 7ft sign...
    NM, OK both state a 5ft sign.
    Texas makes no mention of size, just that there is one.
    Maybe I will get a new one, maybe I'll wait.
    I like your inferred idea that I dont read my permits, funny thing is none of them list dimensions. I love when people act like their #### dont stink. I have no issue with sypder, as he was mostly joking but also has credibility. You have none.

    None of them state a size. Some list the state code, some dont. Definitely something to keep an eye out for going forward.

    Calm down Nancy, you're getting upset.

    Not everything is on the permit itself, that's why it's good to read the provisions sheet and read up on the state requirements. But since you brought up credibility and people acting the their #### dont stink, I noticed you seem to be fairly new to the os stuff. You probably dont need to worry bout other's credibility, maybe you need to worry bout your own.
