    Booked.

    When you look at the loadmap information to make a decision on where to move in order to give yourself a better chance at getting a load, it makes more sense to see where the loads were picked up than to where they were delivered.

    Exactly. Confirmed with Ed and our team, only maps pick up points.

    What are the parameters of '19' on the app? I notice that it does not corespond with the 19 on the Omnitracs.

    I assume that the app version of the 19 includes the trucks that are loaded also based on the fact that it shows more trucks available than there are truck icons on the map and it gives me my position in the que even when I am loaded. Anyone knows for sure what is going on?

    Got a call this afternoon, one picking up in Charlotte today and delivering tomorrow afternoon up near Altoona. A few minutes out from the pickup the phone rings, freight won't be ready until tomorrow (Friday) afternoon, delivery on Tuesday after Christmas. It paid just OK before. Now it pays T-shirt money. :cool:

    I thought so, but thought I better ask.
    Didn't get a chance to find out the answer. Got booked on my 4th overnight run in a row. Running my butt off this week. Will see if I can snag a 5th when I wake up. If not, 40 miles to home looks very tempting

    Goodnight

    Just sitting here monkeying around with the new app and I notice for example, that Terra Haute, IN has very few booked loads over the last 2 days, 2 weeks, or 30 days. Missed loads however, are showing a fairly large number over the same time frame. Does that mean these missed loads are mostly a result of not having a truck in that area?

    Missed is:

    Loads we had and brokered as no Load One unit available.

    Loads customers offered and we were not allowed to broker and did not have a Load One unit so we had to turn down.

    NLM and Active Aero loads that were posted for bid.

    Good Morning Load One! Having lunch at a Pizza Hut Buffet and we got a load! It's like Turtle load, pick-up today deliver Tuesday. It's not a T Shirt paying load, but it does pay pretty good!

    Even though I could easily blame someone for making me think Christmas is on Sunday, I won't

    My shocking moment a minute ago

    Guess I'll be altering my plans a little

    Good Morning Load One, live from Cracker Barrel! My trip has been going good so far. Getting ready to eat and head to Wal-Mart and back to the J, there's a Barbershop there so I can look snazzy over the holiday weekend. After all of that it's time to get to work!

    I've tried to upload the picture of my Great breakfast and after numerous tries of shrinking the picture, it's still too much to upload. LOL

    I am honored to call this man my friend. Load One again this year made a significant donation of wreaths to this cause and we transported around 20,000 wreaths across the country to the graves of our fallen soldiers.

    Wreaths Across America honors veterans this holiday season

    Yup, won't even dwell on another catch no catch.

    I'll have to watch the coaches film to see why Tate has become the invisible man out there for the past several games.

    Guess it's time to pick a back up team...again
