I hit Carlisle whenever I can and pick up Utz potato chips and sourdough pretzels. Grew up in Hagerstown and only love it in Spring and Fall.

Be safe.

Haha was actually gonna post about this weather. Drove up to ME just in time to catch the freezing rain there, then back down to Sparta IL through the snow in Ohio. Now heading out to Ottumwa IA then back to OH with a meat load. Gonna be a 2900 mile week for me, even with the weather, oh joy!

Chickie, I stopped in Effingham for fuel this morning. Funny how our paths cross and we never know.

And Rainy, I think our FM loves to run us on back roads. I've had tours of coastal ME and southern IL and will be touring IA and Ohio over the next couple days...

Fm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Hehe that he is.

Hey, I actually made August laugh one night on a dispatch call. I told him I feel like Arby's with all the Cargill runs I've been doing. He chuckled a little. I almost fell out of the truck...

I've been out for two months cause I went home for the election then prime offered us a bonus to stay out all of December. When the storms kept hitting I told him the date wasn't a special occasion or anything...I'd rather be home alive than kill myself driver ng at night in mountains in snow and ice. But....I'm really close to home and wanna go home..... Lol

Weekend dispatch won't know what to do hahahhaha I'll have to just tell them lol
