    My load isn't placarded so I hope not. Doubt they have one that will fit me. I do have a tyvek coverall with a big rip in the crotch that Sulfer gave me before loading at shell years ago.

    If I have to carry this fire extinguisher again I will have them mount it outside and bring it in at night when I stop. Just fueled at the Petro in Alabama. They have them at every other pump not locked up.

    Bradford wanted me to wear FR fire resistant clothing. I wore the Tyvek cover all I got 4 years ago from the Sulfer terminal to load at Shell. Its like these without the hood:

    You can get them in the paint section at Lowes or Home Depot for about $10. Looking at that Wiki the material is class A flame retardant and they are a lot cheaper than nomex for occasional use.

    The unloaders didn't really care. They did everything and I was out of there in less than 45 minutes. I was styling in my white jumpsuit sitting in the truck though.

    4/1-4/9

    After 3 days at home they had me do a short 200 mile round trip snot load to Bennetsville SC on Wednesday. Thursday it was back out to California over the Easter weekend. I delivered in Carlsbad Ca this afternoon and am sitting at LA Tank Wash as I type this. Spotting the trailer at Ashland tomorrow for one of those Jacksonville Ar loads.

    Do we use our truck pump on those?

    Thanks.

    It does it automatically. Log 8 sleeper and it gives you back what you had when you stopped. Take 2 later and it gives you the rest of your hours.

    They had me do the load without one. Go figure. So if i run my entire 11 out the day before will i get any back after 8 hours ?

    Only if you took a 2 hour break sometime during the day before's 14. Then you will pick up any hours you ran before the 2 hour break. Example run 4 hours to customer log 2 hours sleeper/off duty during unload. Run 7. After 8 sleeper you will pick up 4 hours.
