    Dodge van?

    Yesterday I had occasion to be in Columbus on I-270. I'm sure as I drove by the Dodge dealer, Performance Dodge, just by Georgesville Road I saw a new Dodge van sitting out there on the front row. Anyone else noticed?

    T. E. Smith; Liars, Cheats and Theives

    Promises do not a contract make. You are in a volatile industry, there are NO guarentees of the revenue you will make. I don't know anything about TE Smith, but your experience is not unusual in the entire industry.

    I'm watching the ODOT cam at that exit, seems they now have the traffic going off, and back on, at the exit, no detour in affect.

    2 dead, 1 hurt in fiery wreck on I-75 near Tipp City

    You think it bothers you, Murray? Two people will never be going home ...... Seems it all started, (latest reports), when a semi slammed into the rear of another in construction ..... reports like these are much to common. One can only wonder why the driver was so distracted. Texting, phone...

    At least now Moose, you can be upset closer to my house. The new FlyingJ is now open in Vandalia.

    What's Free in Trucking?

    Nothing is free, ever .. except maybe advise and it's worth what you pay for it. At no additional cost is the best you can do.

    Blinded by the light

    My wife's department chief stated that if they received to many complaints, they would place the lights on a permanent "dim" position. There are valid reasons, at times, to have them at full output, but they can indeed become a hazard themselves.

    I always listen, hoping to hear something new. But when it gets to "federal marshals closing the chicken coops", I usually loose all interest.

    Well, you asked, but I don't know the answer ....... I'm guessing those smilies were in place when EO bought the place.

    Power napping

    You need to practice .... I used to get good naps for miles going down the highway! ;) Seriously, it is a learned process. If I decide for a nap, the moment my head hits the pillow I am asleep, same for going to bed at night. My wife is amazed at how quickly I can be asleep. But as mentioned...

    More CSA Blues; This Time Affecting Major Expedite Carriers

    That is EXACTLY why I left the old Roberts Express, after Roadway Services, then Caliber, took it upon themselves to penalize everything, (so it seemed). An example was the signage, if I "chose not" to have the advertising on my truck, I lost 3%. Why not reward with an ADDITIONAL 3% if did...

    What happens if you die on the road?

    I think it says a lot for a company to be proactive in an emergency situation, but I do not believe they have any legal obligation to return remains. Matter of fact, it may become a liability.
