    Downtime is great, for about 24 hours. Slept in my bed last night, caught up on my paperwork this morning, ready to go back in service

    I hear ya, Don! Due to baseball, we can't sleep in these next couple of weekends. But I'd prefer to take my laptop to Myrtle Beach after next week and book some freight down there. I mean, hey, it worked when I did a week in Daytona beach!! And you MAY not have been able to tell I started drinking at noon every day!!!

      You're a good dispatcher, but on a Barstool you are a GREAT dispatcher

      I am with Don...been home 2 days now...other than when I schedule a cruise or similar vacation I just twitch and shake and get all fidgety waiting for the next load...ive worked such long hours over the years in the transportation industry that most people I would spend time with on time off have their own lives and no time for the randomness of when I have time off...

      Well, I guess the only thing to do is go on vacation myself, spending a week working around the house, catching up on time with family....then my better half and I are off to spend a few days in our cabin in the Smokies!

      Well, it must be true that Murray puts his driver's first. I understand (from his Facebook) that he has scrimpted so much that he can't even afford underware on vacation

      Wanted to attend Expo but returned to a couple unplanned items needing my attention at home upon return from vacation .... I'm glad we were represented and that some of us had a good time there.
