    Hope the rooms are at least somewhat clean, I can deal with the rest, years working offshore and time in Navy hopefully will come in handy dealing with the other stuff, I am hot natured so I should be ok but will bring extra clothes just in case. Thanks for the insight.

    I did wait an was told by the officer that it was a good idea to call, but do see your point since he told me that I wasn't going to be cited.

    The rooms were clean. They actually have someone that comes by and cleans them. Your being in the Navy will help greatly. Just think of the whole school process and a mini bootcamp and you'll be fine. That's how I got through it. :biggrin_25525:

    I fixed the food thieves in my high school. My Mom made everything homemade and someone was stealing it. I put horsepoop sandwiches in with the usual fare , mayo and let -tom. Never got stolen again.

    My thoughts as well, regarding food thieves, plan on bringing more pre-packaged stuff I can keep locked away than fresh, will go out for the fresh stuff.

    Well I was fired the day before last. While I was sitting in the Dallas yard waiting for a load, my fleet manager sent me a qualcom message saying to go to the Shreveport terminal. Once there, a mechanic came out and told me that he had orders to disable my truck. After that was done I called my fleet manager and was immediately transfered to his manager who informed me that because of the company's new safety standards I was being fired. This stems from the accidents that you can read about all through this thread. Now I'm waiting for the items that were shipped to arrive and hoping that it all makes it, though I'm doubtful. I'm also applying at different companies. Any suggestions are welcomed.

    My miles were good up until my termination. That last week I had run 3000 miles.

    Don't feel bad. Try JKC trucking out of Summit IL (south side) they run reefer mainly West coast and back to Chicago. I know they pay $1500 per run. Might want to check them out. You can google it or let me know I'll give you the number.
