    Called my buddy in Minnesota today that I bought the jd from and asked him about the warranty and he laughed saying it was under that it was under warranty from Princeton minn to omaha and it expired the minute I started it to unload it.
    He also suggested I call Cummins for future warranty?s.

    Kinda wondered if I would see any difference in dispatch or loads since I paid off the truck ? ...none whatsoever....settlement check last week was 6100.00 so obviously I'll be staying at Morehouse and business as usual.
    It's getting hard to refrain from commenting on the threads that say every LP is a screw job but most are sooooo.
    It's been nice taking some time off but it's back to work to close on my house this fall and pay down debt ....all is well !

    Had a scare today...well actually two .
    About 1030 this morning on the Indiana toll rd just east of portage that radius light on my trailer went from green to yellow indicating reefer trouble...not good with a minus 10 frozen beef load for chef Boyardee so I hit a service plaza and the unit was totally dead with a low battery voltage code and temp was already at 2 degrees.
    Closest carrier dealer is Chicago but no way I'm turning around so next choice is toledo ohio 3 hours away , so I called theyre after hours number and got some kid on the line who clearly didn't want to hear my problems let alone come out after hours, however we are a priority customer with carrier and they have to get our units up 24/7/365 no it's ands or buts .
    So I tell Mr tude I'll be there in 3 hours bye bye , I beat him there by about 15 minutes but hey whats the rush ? It's still 47 degrees in the trailer lol.
    Once in the shop with the trailer dropped he tells me the alternater is bad ....butttttt.....with the whole Corona thing they may not have one in stock as parts are on backorder ...im like huh ?@! you do realize that trailer has a frozen load on it right ?
    As I point to the lot of empty reefers and say there's the backorder dept right there .
    Suddenly he decided the battery was probably bad as opposed to pulling an alternater off another trailer .
    New battery took care of it and it's back at minus 10 running fine .
    Man this latest generation of techs have almost no people skills , no sence of urgency and are really lazy .

    You know Brad, I think it's really cool that you have a charity that you want to support, and breaking a Guinness record is pretty rad!!!! Your choice of records to break tho, leaves much to be desired. Naked skydiving???????


    Yes guys an Omaha resident did 60 dives in a 24 he period.

    So I delivered my frozen pork to con agra foods in milton penn today .
    I noticed this plant is very old looking but also well kept up so I asked one of the employees all of whom were very friendly what they make there ? ....turns out is the chef Boyardee plant that makes that yummy spaghetti and ravioli and its been there over 75 years! .....@Dave_in_AZ for those that don't know this is a staple of Dave's diet as well as his cat lol.
    3pm appointment and empty at 430 also adds to ambiance of the place along with the statue of chef Boyardee.
