    Beep Beep Beep...
    Funny you said that. I heard a lot of that last night. Just enough to wake me, but soft enough to fall back asleep.
    Those dang back up beepers I thought.
    Then I finally woke up for the day, hearing the Beep Beep Beep again.
    Dang, there are a lot of them here.
    Then it dawned on me that the actual source of the sound was coming from my refrigerator alarm :rolleyes:
    Given the outside temperature, I figured it was most likely a freeze alert. So I just reached under my bed and just turned it off.

    So, to tie it in with Turtles comment. When you get used to sleeping around a lot of noise, definitely need something that stands out above what we tune out ;)

      We are also looking at a system to maybe call the phone. We are seeing a demo of that technology tomorrow. More details to follow!

      an awesome company
      "Super loud ringtones" app has a ton of real loud ringtones. The sound for Load One is the "Dive Alarm" tone. Superduper loud.

      Well we might log a turn down but not sure we normally call an OOS unit. Your hour clock isnt running when you are OOS so that wouldnt have any effect. Was it a load offer through the automated system? If so this might be a glitch we need to look at.

      Yes, it was through the automated system. And on top of that, judging by the rate offered, it was meant for Sprinter units, not Straight trucks.

      Deja vu...

      2nd outing in a row sitting for a week again.
      I'm surprised I'm not going bonkers.
      Also surprised I'm not the longest sitter.

      One way or another I'll move somewhere else this weekend, preferably with a load :rolleyes:

      Will today be my lucky day?
      Or get a very rare nothing for the week?

      Only time will tell o_O
