    Thanks for taking my call earlier @keen98 I appreciate it. My load ended up being legal, but only because I made that guy restack the back 1/3 of my trailer. And even then, I had to slide my tandems back further than I like. I'm not the only one who's been having problems with that place. Another driver pulled into Weedsport while I was fueling and said he always has problems with weight at that place too. Watch yourself over there, that guy is an idiot. He may know how to run his tow motor, but he has no idea how to load a trailer. At least not legally.
     
    Shock Therapy Thanks this.

    Hey no problem. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. Man thats weird lol. Glad you got it straightened out though. Im currently in Jeffersonville IN being unloaded at a Menards store. Thinking bout putting shorts on and going for a walk as its a hot 22 degrees here currently and Ive been home since Friday in temps of -15+ everyday! Always hate 1st day back out. Ive "only" driven 514miles today and Im exhausted.

    It's my understanding that regional guys can stay out as long as they want, just like OTR. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong about that. Not sure how it works if you want to be home every weekend. I do know a couple regional guys here that get home quite a bit because their runs take them right by home. So they'll end up in their own beds 3 to 4 times a week.
