    Speaking of MT DOT... @D.Tibbitt What the hell is up with all the #### weigh stations???? It seems that they have them at every junction of 2 or more po-dunk roads large enough to deem calling them "Highways"!!!!

    Probably not. They will have to work, so the money will move from grocery stores to fast food.
    That will have to hire more people to make the fast food, and people will take the jobs because they have to pay rent now.

    At least it’s not Oregon. They have a scale on anything that is not a drive way, and a few of those are questionable.

    Only been into OR once with a truck... Ran 84 all the way to Portland to deliver liquor, then jumped across the river to WA to get onions. That was more than enough for me. I've put dispatch on notice that I will NOT take loads to OR... PERIOD.

    I was just discussing with The OM whether or not we should leave at like 0100 ish when we can drive again, due to the fact that we are in WHY-OH-MING, kinda out in the sticks, and there are large furries wondering about.

    Well, a deer just walked past the back of the trailer. :biggrin_2556:
