    My last truck out of memphis did 69. I ask the safty mng about this and how to log it sense I was told by ID Falls to log 64. He said not to worry about it and log at 66. So I did.

    Well this fool here reminds you that you shouldn't just jump into a truck WITHOUT CHECKING THE DANG PERMIT BOOK ! Too many people need their hand held and then blame everyone else for their woes.

    Uh, you do know that this year Knight didn't have half the junk ready for the permit books until 7 days or less before they expired. Even the insurance cards where not ready!

    I can get by a terminal any week why can't you ? This guy was probably ignored because his cab card was a year over due. Well DUH ! It's the drivers responsibility to keep up with permits. I can see now why I had to go into the safety office in Phoenix and get a lil sheet of paper signed by the safety guy saying my permits were up to date so I could get a PM. You either run well or sit around, it really is pretty much your choice here or at any other company.

    When I first started driving I went out with a "trainer" for a month. Looking back on the situation now, I'll bet that "trainer" hadn't been driving very long himself.

    Long story short, when they cut me loose in my own truck, I drove around without a permit book for almost a month until I had to go through the POE in Wyoming. I went inside and they wanted to see my bingo stamp... "Uh, what's that?", I replied.

    LMAO... the DOT man about crapped a gold nugget when he found out I had no permit book whatsoever. Needless to say, I spent a good deal of time getting documents faxed to the POE from our Salt Lake City terminal. (and no... it wasn't CR England or Skunk, Inc.)

    Yea that would be a "communication error" in training. I hope you explained why that happened. I'd say you probably did that is why they faxed you all you needed. But some people in this industry are nothing short of train wrecks.

    Very rarely do I get to one, even rarer if the people are in it working, and almost unheard of that anyone has a clue! How do you get by them some much anyway? Short runs or something?
