    I hit 37k for the quarterly bonus but didn't get the DOQ bonus and safety bonus because of a weight warning on a clean Level III. First day out with the new truck and the numbers are all different compared to my '15 and I had assumed MN scales would be closed and I'd calibrate when I got to my preplan which was convenient to do a light weigh and heavy weigh.

    BTW in my '18, 63 PSI is where you need to check it. 63 can be anything from 33,700 - 34,300. I've also got a 8## series trailer where about 83 psi is 34k, instead of the typical 80 psi on the others

    Oooohhhh, that sucks.

    I’ll be watching. I’m very curious how to fix that.

    For california, at least it wasn't the other way around where you had to lengthen to get right on the weight.

    But with all their tractors, best option is to have the 5th wheel as far forward as it will go and push close to 12.6-12.7 on the steers and you'd probably be able to make that load manageable if you were 3/4 or more fuel onboard, and given the APU allowance.

    I loaded in Joplin on a Saturday afternoon where they apparently put in the system the product weight but not with the pallets. Anyway with about 3/4 tanks, I was 80,800. I carried that to Portland but I did a lot of 50 gallon fuel stops. I could have gotten some of the product removed, but I didn't want to waste another who knows how many hours, and I was already trying to get through Wyoming before a significant winter storm system forecasted to come up from the southwest. I had gotten to Little America just as it came in. A little bit of wind and snow to Evanston and smooth sailing the rest of the way.

    It's about what I expected but worse depending on how one looks at it. I arrived 1 mile from receiver Thursday afternoon. Current enjoying some adult beverages at the best western lounge

    08:00 Friday manassas unload. But reload is 60 miles away in Strasburg for 21:30 load appt to San Antonio for Monday morning. So I potentially sit a whole day and burn off all my 14 waiting to load unless they load early.

    Got me an offer where I’ll be a somewhat dedicated run from Iowa to California and back. Been a good run here, but just time to move on for me.

    Hopefully y’all continue to do well here.
