    Nerves? Just the big one the company has for telling everyone they would get 2200 to 2500 miles a week.

    Don't think so. A bunch of other people were also solo and didn't get so few miles.

    @CargoWahgo , I would love to have the opportunity to get a passport. But I cannot even afford to buy a tire pressure gauge at this point.

    Absolutely no complaints on the truck. I have a 2015 t680 with 77000 miles on it. She runs very, very well. Her name is Agent 77. Her number is 37744, so you can guess where all those 77s come from.

    I sat in West Memphis all weekend. I did a caterpillar load to arrive Tuesday morning. The miles to Corinthe are not showing up on my pay, and the load I was dispatched on earlier today is not showing up on my advance.

    Today's load is due to arrive on Friday morning in Gallstone, MO ( lol, I don't remember the name) I had to call and talk to my fleet manager all about this, because that would have given me a whopping 1300 miles or less. So he tells me things that would have been helpful to know, like that I can drop the load off earlier, a whole day or two earlier. They put all that crap information out on the Qualcomm, but they don't give you personal information like that. I do think that I may have gotten my point across to my fleet manager.

    You can always call the customer dreamboat. (I know they say you aren't allowed to but do it anyway...everyone does it). Worst they can do is say no.
    Beats rushing over and sitting for no reason....Google is your friend not the phone number they provide on the QC.

    I've rescheduled appointments many times without dispatch knowing. Also an opportunity for a vacation or unearned days off with free bobtailing.


    And no your point didn't get anything across.... That place is full of dips and nothing is ever going to change there. Hence why they were sold for sucking and getting sold again for being the suckest.

    I think Conway reimburses for passports. They claim to make you get them or fire you. Could just be the hazmat

    ....I know it takes a month to get your money back...they use driver money as a source of neverending credit....which is why your comdata never seems to buy that bulb or oil.

    That passport card is cheap. Get it....it was your ticket out of Memphis while all the puds stay sitting 20 board spots ahead of you.


    Does the kW have a gauge that says how fast the car in front of you is going?
    I thought that was so neat in the cascadias.

    Thanks for the information, cargo. Yes, that gauge is there. It's called collision mitigation.

    Dreamboat, you are doing fine. Just curious about something. Why didn't you drive to the Memphis Terminal to layover? I am thinking that the facilities at the Memphis yard would beat any W. Memphis truck stop. There would also be other drivers there that you could complain to about your miles.:)

    Also, it is too late to tell you, but just down the road from the W. Memphis Pilot is Southland Greyhound Park. They have a really nice truck parking lot. You know, a little food, a couple of beers, and a little entertainment.

    I worked there for 4 years if your in West Memphis and Ms Ruthie is still there ask her to get you out to Otay Mesa or Nogales those border runs always paid me well and kept me moving I loved them. If they still do those border runs I haven't been there for a year now so
