    You would think brokers and logistic people would know what you need to enter a chemical plant or refinery
    Of course they had the information they just were keeping it a top-secret

    Yes but appearance tells all! Part of a mall outlying and no residual truck leftovers or marks.

    On my last delivery I had to take a safety test, which comes with a safety card and everything or I couldn't unload. The test had a little over 20 questions.

    Since I've been working Texas and Oklahoma I have a fistful of them training cards
    We were given almost no information except for the fact when we asked for it they had it on hand?

    Yeah I almost always need a pick up number, and the broker always forgets to send it with all the other information.

    Had a nice one Friday night and Saturday, New Orleans to near Moline. Right before we get to the pick, our company called and asked if we wanted to make it a twofer; pick up at same shipper, deliver to Broken Bow OK then on to Illinois. Sure! Mo money

    Looong day, 1300 miles, one small doe, but we're safe and sound at the J in Davenport. Back at it tomorrow morning when the $ posts into our bank account.
