Jason, I am loving CFI. I feel the attitude from everyone is welcoming.

I'm guessing there's a camaraderie amongst most companies. I've had prime drivers pull my tandem pin and open my doors, another hooked up to my trailer and backed it in a door when I had a blow out at the customer.

Its really cool to go into the terminal and meet "one of us" from the forum. It think im up to having met 13 from the forum now. I met like six the week I changed trucks and took some classes. Its kinda neat ;)

Rick I just met for the heck of it cause I delivered ten minutes from his home and needed a 34.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Tandem:

Tandem Axles

A set of axles spaced close together, legally defined as more than 40 and less than 96 inches apart by the USDOT. Drivers tend to refer to the tandem axles on their trailer as just "tandems". You might hear a driver say, "I'm 400 pounds overweight on my tandems", referring to his trailer tandems, not his tractor tandems. Tractor tandems are generally just referred to as "drives" which is short for "drive axles".

I wish to meet many of you at some point. It's very difficult since I am rarely in the same place for more than an hour.

Rainy I saw that a bunch of you were in Prime-East, Pittston yesterday, I was already pre-planned on a South Jersey shore run (Vineland, Rio-Grande, Mays Landing & Woodbury), otherwise I would have requested a route with the Pittston store in the mix...tough to plan meets like you had. I occasionally stop at the Pilot across the street from the store for coffee.

Hey Rainy... Bloomsburg is definitely in the woods, about an hour and 15 minutes North West of the DC. Penny broke your truck? Just kidding... I love driving in that area in the fall, especially at dawn or dusk. Makes all the nuances of this job worth it.

For some reason I thought you were closer to the blueberry capital of the world, "Hammonton". Been to that store too, hah. Cool little town. Anyway, the Woodbury Store near Sam's and the Deptford Mall is the store described in my reply to your backing thread. I like breaking at the Woodbury store cause there is a nice shady spot on the side (W-Side) of the GM dock with gobs of places to park for a spell. Even though it was in the low 80's yesterday, with the windows down, a slight breeze and the Allman Brothers playing it was a pleasant 30 minute break! I actually had a really nice encounter (unexpected) with a older gentleman who parked his pickup about 20' in front of the nose of my tractor. He proceeded to walk over to me and ask if that was a problem for me getting out. I assured him it was definitely not in my way... He said "okay thanks cause I now you guys won't hit my pride and joy". He was driving a new GMC pick-up less than a week old. I thanked him for being thoughtful... Not a typical Jousey exchange, so I won't tell you about the impatient mom in the SUV with 2 kids (great example) who flipped-me-off cause I had to swing wide making a right turn. Back to reality...

And I'm at a Pilot outside of Pittsburgh for the night. Sitting in the truck for a bit.
