    Only problem is you were apparently thinking on ONE foot. Bean Jr. and I were firmly planted ON BOTH FEET! lol:rolleyes::p just having a little fun. Don't go off on me:D. As to your 2nd point.......I do not start conversations with anybody at a TA or Petro buffet. BTW........I haven't seen a single TA or Petro Buffet open in almost a year. However, the BUFFET AND SALAD BAR are open at Dottie's in Missouri.
     
    Bean Jr. and truckdriver31 Thank this.

    Not if you'd started, and ended, with tandems at the ### of the trailer.

    If you mean "weights over 12K", no. Essentially because there is no such limit in almost all (all?) states. The limit is the lower of 20K, your tire capacity and your front end rating. Our new truck runs close to 14 every week, but tires and ratings are sufficient. As long as we burn enough fuel to get below 13.6 before going into BC, we're good.
     
    Bean Jr. and gentleroger Thank this.
