    Work by rule !!! I still have a spark of Solidarity in Me. Nothing would change,for Me, since I don’t run that hard anymore anyway. Run 2 days, take a day off. Hardly an Outlaw. Would be a good time to highlight the current downfalls of the HOS though.

    The real question is, Who’s got the loads? I hope the Government doesn’t allocate a bunch to Landstar, like during the hurricanes. I guess those were FEMA Loads. The current situation will be different, I guess? Just have to wait and see. I wouldn’t mind running some loads, where they’re actually glad to see me show up, unload without a hassle, and maybe appreciate it.I can’t imagine. Lol

    Judging by some of the lazy people working in warehouses and stores, the chances that they will be glad to see any truck that causes them more work are slim. And I bet the lumper companies at drooling right now.

    I'm open deck, but I'm picking up a load at a trade show that closed early, so that qualifies me, right??!!?? Lol

    I just delivered some Tradeshow stuff to a warehouse, last week, It’s probably going to cancel. Maybe I can haul it back. 99% loads on open deck? I’d think van and reefer would be the case. I just booked a load a week in advance. First time ever. Usually do last minute bookings. Time will tell, I suppose.
     
    PE_T Thanks this.

    I wonder if they could shut the mail service down? You know if someone with the virus licks an envelope, someone opening it could get it I'd think. So I think the mail should be shut down. Then I won't get my pesky bills!
