    I walked in a Tractor Supply Store tonight because I'm here for a delivery in the morning but wow, never knew how much stuff they carry... It's similar to Ace Hardware... Work clothes, tools, lots of stuff...

    Does it seem to any of you that since the freight doesn't run the board like it did before that you see a lot less offered now? I wonder how much is missed unless you have someone at home looking constantly for you or something similar... Maybe I'm wrong? Almost feel as though you gotta be on looking constantly...

    I've noticed a decrease in the amount of calls I get from my coordinator.

    What do you mean it doesn't run the board like it did?

    My first non factory seat as well. They were a good price so we got them. Installed them today & got to sit in them & man are they nice. I'm ready to go truckin' again just to try them out. Lol.

    I tried earlier & then read the email they sent out that says it may not work on all smart phones yet. I haven't tried again but that may have been the problem.

    TSC are awesome stores. I've delivered to them myself, very easy places to unload. We have those & another just like it called Attwoods.

    Oscar, they made a slight change , when loads run the board , empty trucks still get first shot, but after that its the first guy that commits to it.

    On booking loads ahead , you honestly are competing with empty trucks a week or two out. For advance loads , no board position, first guy that commits

    You keep in touch with coordinator, maybe sets parameters further out and tad less money. But so far , I am snagging them loads , or at least my wife is.

    ok guys, dumb question time...

    I'm picking up the truck tomorrow, will be in orientation on Sep 5th. I know Mercer offers bobtail and physical damage insurance, but can I get the insurance prior to coming to orientation? Or do I need to find my own insurance just to get to KY?

    Who do you insure your truck through?

    First of all, there's no dumb question.
    Second, you will need to get temporary insurance on your own to get to orientation. I got it once but I don't remember from who. If you're a member of OOIDA you might be able to get it from them.
