I have a couple drivers that are not going to make it home this weekend. Who else is staying out? Panther just sent out a fleet message for some trucks to stay available. Does anything really move during a holiday weekend?

We are staying out but I don't know if that is smart. We have already turned down one load for Tuesday. It paid really bad. Layoutshooter

I'll be staying out. There will be some freight moving, a lot of it with delivery Tues morning. You just have to hope to snag one with some miles.

We are staying out over the long weekend. There is no reason or need to go home.

Edit: Just got dispatched on a Tuesday pickup. Will be passing the long weekend in the area of the pickup. Bummer that the RV parks are full. kini lu, you rule!

Since I am about 2000 miles from home, I will probably stay out here. I have not been East of the Mississippi for about 3 weeks now. Some idiot keeps accepting loads going west. :D

Not much van freight out here that I can see.

I sure would like to go east for a change. Never thought I would say that.

We are staying out and running. Have a load from the EAST to southern CA. Just what we were hoping for. Here is wishing everyone a Safe and Happy Labor Day Weekend. HOPE YOU GET YOUR PARTY ON..

I'm going to! 3 months out, and the last chance to picnic in the park with the family. (And make fun of the uncles in shorts, lol) :D

It would be nice if the team got a run out of Los Angeles delivering on Tuesday. They are delivering something to Warner Bros. Studios in Holywood for some movie.

We are staying out , Del. in Laredo in AM , if anyone is working the holiday ,then we are in a good spot ... i Think...

never mined the Cops , be aware of the Drunk Drivers , and try to stay away from driving 9 pm to 5 am ...

Have a nice holiday ...

I WAS gonna stay out this weekend......



GUSTAV has changed all that. We're pre-prepping the property
for a evacuation if needed. Not much we can do that we haven't
done before, board the houses up and pick up floatable stuff.

My Son and Nephew will take the trucks north stuffed with valuables that the Wives deem valuable. Only so much stuff you can cram in 24'. Wives and the kids will follow the boys in their cars.

My father , brother and I will take our boats either east or west.
As of yet, no indication of exact travel path. We'll travel with a
flotilla of boats out of Morgan City [as usual] The 8th or 9th time we've fled like a bunch of Cubans.

So much for labor day.

If that's not labor, I don't know what is!
Hope y'all come out in the sunshine, on the far side.
PS My elder daughter just bought a home in Deland, and is seriously wondering whether Fla was a good choice.....

Deland huh? We almost bought a house there 20 years ago. Hubby and I grew up in that area...boy has it CHANGED! :eek:

We are staying out, truck repairs tomorrow morning, then Seville next week. Luckily we had a good running week...next week will be a bust.

Any of our fellow EO members going to be in Seville next week?

We are home for our usual Labor Day party with family and friends but will be back to work on Wednesday.

I hope everyone has a great Labor Day!
