    My JBS load I got now was ready 10hrs before the pickup window began. And, it's a working trailer.

    Reset? I don't need no stinkin reset.

    Delivering here at Colorado Box Beef in Lakeland, Fl. Went to the address provided only to find out that location was closed to OTR delivery last week. New facility is at 330 N Ingraham Ave. Very limited truck parking on site. Park on the street (in the left turn lane) and walk the bills to the guard shack. Take note if there is a parking space available and if there is, then drive in and park. If not, stay on the street. They will call you and it's FCFS. God forbid if you get a door on the back side. Very tight turns through a residential area to get to the other side.

    Guess the home office is to busy with a Halloween party to send EFS checks for lumpers. Half hour waiting and counting.

    Edit: Ended up calling and talking to Bryan and got the EFS code sent.

    I'm more rested running recaps than running a fresh 70.

    There are good reasons for running both ways. To each their own. I understand your method and reasoning. Was being tongue in cheek after the low daily numbers I have had the past few weeks.

    Once my truck is paid off (just over two years), I most likely move on to where I can choose my own loads and not run as hard. Or just put in for hometime every two weeks. Either way, I won't be running as hard.

    Ditto. But I'm probably going to run just as hard for a year to build up a savings bubble with the truck payments. Then self driving trucks will take over and I'll have enough built up to work at McDonald's.
