My list is kinda small. ND, IA, KS, OK, MN, WI, IL, MO, MI, IN, OH, PA, NY, NC, SC, KY, TN, MS, AL, GA, & FL. Now I get to add LA.

Of that list only PA and MO I haven't picked up or delivered. Just drove thru.

FRAGO (Fragmentation Order. I.e. Change of plans)

No longer doing Baton Rouge load. Got pulled off the relay a hot load. However, load got put on ice by shipper. They loaded it on the wrong companies trailer. Now am sitting in a holding pattern waiting for the word.

Gotta love trucking.

In the spirit of the Marine Core: Semper Gumbi! (Always Flexible)

Shipper:

The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.

VT is weird with exit #'s. NH too. Like NY. They are not posted by mile marker but numerical order. Oh why can't they all just be the same? Rainy If you get to do any back roads in VT it's beautiful. Like going back in time. Lots of old churches, small villages.

I'm missing ME, RI, NH, VT. As far as Baton rouge, watch out for the coonasses (NOT A RACIAL SLUR) they drive like idiots, and Louisiana roads ALL suck

Visiting doesn't count. Driving a big rig does. Now while visiting you had the pleasure of driving an 18 wheeler around the island, more power to you. I wouldn't want to drive an 18 wheeler on Oahu. Driving a car is bad enough. Thought of being in an 18 wheeler on H-1 or H-2 makes me shudder. Let alone trying to take one down King Kam Hwy.

I lived in Hawaii for 3 years. Everyone drives like a maniac. 6 designated lanes and you get someone driving down the inside shoulder decide they have to take the exit they are about to pass. They don't even bother looking. Across 6 lanes of traffic and on to the off ramp without so much as a peep over their shoulder. Living their convinced me that vehicles ARE Asian/Polynesian Kryptonite!!
