    The bean to cup stuff at L and PF/J is drinkable. I think the issue I may have with it is there half and half. I’m not a flavor added guy. Meh. I just like coffee.

    The machines they use are finicky, they need to be maintained. This is a big problem. Most of the time they are so far out of adjustment that they make lousy beverages.

    Preloaded trailer. I walked around back to check the paperwork and this caught my eye. LOL

    Looks like someone didn’t set the pins and when they hit the brakes the tandems slid to the rear. Then someone welded the mudflap hanger back on and went down the road. First time I flat refused a trailer at LS. The road call guy about pooped himself. The tandems were barely holding on. Dang. They chained it up and put it back in a door and transloaded it. Cost me some time but I didn’t kill anyone so good on me.

    Who ever scabbed that together should be fired. I'm currently fixing similarly scabbed together crap on some of our tankers.

    There isn’t enough words to explain the shock and horror of seeing that. I just imagined the the tandems passing me tumbling down a freeway into a bus full of nuns.

    Got any photos of your welding? Mines still complete garbage.

    Nothing current... I will soon. I'm completely rebuilding fender hangers for new fenders on a tanker.
