    I did this to somebody on a swap but he caught it and gave me the load back. It was 900 over on the cali hole. I had it in hole 7 which had the load perfectly balanced...33,800, 33900, 11300, something like that. I took the risk and delivered it. No choice really. Made it with no hassle, but still mistake made.

    The thing is, I had no idea that the cali hole was hole 5. I usually just go by the red mark and leave it at that (no mark on this trailer). I have made the horrible mistake of not paying attention. I got reamed on this one because of my inattention. That swap would have been my home time swap if I hadn't messed up. Instead I delivered this to L.A. area hell with a dock so tight, it gave me PTSD (well, exaggerating a bit). This delayed my home time by over a week because I had to sit over 24 hours on Christmas day waiting to deliver, and I emptied out in Reno. Hard lesson learned.

    There's something oddly satisfying about getting from Santa Rosa NM all the way to La Grande OR, and still have between a Quarter and an 8th of a tank left.

    Oh it gets better a twt and a Gardner Trucking driver decided that they didn't want to park their trailers somewhere else and dump them right in the middle of the turnaround making it impossible to do a U-turn in the back.

    The guards don't give a flying #### either that the back area has no parking and they're continuing to send trucks back there...
