    That's cool. What i meant was do they ask ya if you prefer a freightliner or an international? I've even seen some Kenworths that looked like company crete trucks.

    Awww. No. No choice as far as that goes. They do have some KW's but was told they are not getting anymore. Seems like the may be going with just Freightliner.

    Keep an eye out for Shaffer threads as well. Same company. Crete is dry van, Shaffer is reefer. Hunt is flatbed, but not much crossover from Hunt into Crete or Shaffer.

    In my experience, they rarely send you more than 2 miles out of route for fuel.

    Better yet, they will allow you to change your fuel routing, provided you call and notify them that you are taking a different route, and tell them what town you want to fuel in.

    If you have to go out of route for a legitimate reason, document it, and they will normally pay for it. While I was a company driver, I went out of route many times to avoid storms, big city rush hour traffic, and road closures.

    I'm loving Walmart dedicated. Best week so far! Chasing that 70 each week with no resets.

    So I didn't head out Monday. They had a load on me picking up in Skohegan, ME going to somewhere in PA. Was going to be a 1 1/2 day run for about $820. Well come to find out it picked up on Monday and didn't deliver till Friday.. Yeaaa that's not going to work. So I didn't leave out till Tuesday afternoon for a 4-6pm live load in Adams, MA. delivering to a live unload in Springboro, OH. Arrived at 4:30 and was told it wasn't going to be ready till after 6pm. Finally left around 8pm.

    I had scoped out a few options to shut down for the night after fueling based on leaving Adams around 6pm. They were now not going to work. So I shut down after fueling. Dark, Raining night Around 1am I found a few spots open at the Loves in Binghanton, NY Circled around and pulled right in. After heading to bed at 2am I here a banging on my door.. WTF. What time is it... 6:30am I ignore it. 1 minute later.. Bang, Bang, Bang... I slide the curtain and a driver is standing there looking at me. "WHAT?!!" I need you to move he says... WHY? I need to go out this way.. NO, GO TURN AROUND OVER THERE.. You need to move. NOT HAPPENING. I'm going to go tell management.. OK. SEE YA. 15 mins he wasted until he finally did what I told him. Back into any one of the multiple spaces that are open and then pull out and leave. Literally took him 30 seconds to do so..

    Drove to the receiver Weds. Got there at 11:30pm was able to park in their lot and slept for the night. Delivered first thing this morning.

    I'll finish this off tomorrow. Sitting in Buffalo right now with Blizzard warnings and my truck is "Rocking like a Hurricane" (name that band) 23* out right with a reel feel temp of 0*
