    Not so much a fan of idling but paper is hilarious. “Uhh yeah...I was parked in Missoula at 8:30 last night. Yeah, just like it says.”

    I don't care who I irritate in a truckstop, if I want to move the truck, I'll idle my way across at 4.5mph until I find a spot without reefers or APUs. I liked AOBRD better just for the 15mph allowance, but I'll piss off a swift driver or 3 and make 'em slow down as I mosey to my parking spot....

    Instead of dieing off,which will come soon enough, can I just stick with my loose leaf till I am ready?

    I hauled a 65k container before
    Never again, braking on it sucked, not sure when the last time that chassis was looked over. The truck also felt like it was about to stall with every take off

    I fill in as the yard dog from time to time and I can totally agree with this.
