    Turning down Loads

    I hear in another post we can turn down loads and keep our board position. Seems unlikely to me that a policy that important would change without drivers or owners being messaged. Probably just a rumor.

    Still Alive

    I have not been on here for a long time, and just want to state that I am still alive. I have been running very hard, and been busy. The economic downturn finally caught me, and I am sitting and waiting like so many others. I don't have to be first in line as long as I am next. :cool:

    Load offer protocol

If I want a load badly, I find myself sitting in my van by my quaalcomm so as not to miss one. I was loaded ahead of four vans one time and they swarmed...

    Canada Ultra Low Sulpher Diesel

    Does anyone know if USLD is available in Canada? I could not find any in Manitoba or Saskatchewan when I was there. I was told it was not available in Canada. Unfortunately people are always willing to tell you what they know even when they know nothing. I think I spelled sulfur wrong haha...
