The clock and parking

If you’re with Western Express flatbed you can probably park at most Lowe’s stores without a problem.

Flatbed and driving help needed, long post

Also you don’t have to go under the rub rail......All tiedowns and other components of a cargo securement system used to secure loads on a trailer equipped with rub rails must be located inboard of the rub rails whenever practicable.

Enlightening Conversation Overheard At A Truck Stop About Owning A Truck

How was your food there? I ate there about a month ago and wasn’t very satisfied with it.

Expert Advice

Pretty simple. If you don’t have $5k to pay them, you sure don’t have enough to start your own trucking business. And that’s what a lease is.

Home!

Hey Willie, I’ve been with McElroy for 3 1/2 years and I’m home every Friday, usually between 4-6. Leave out Sunday usually mid afternoon but they guarantee you get home every weekend. Plus flatbed is fun.

Question About Former Medical Marijuana User

Do they ask about past medical marijuana use on the long form? I know they ask about any current meds or herbal remedies and ask about any illegal substances over the last 2 years (I think) but I didn’t know about medical marijuana.

Grumpy you must disclose the use of it on your medical long form because there is an electronic record of your medical history you give them full authorization to review. If you lie, and get caught, you are unlikely to find employment for a long time and run the risk of criminal action because these forms are federally regulated, legal documents.

Huge mistake to lie on a medical form, huge mistake.

TMC

I have a friend that has been with them for a year now and he loves it. He really likes the option they give you to stay out over the weekend if he wants to. Or they get him home every weekend.

Favorite Bluetooth Headset

Blue Parrot 250xt ... Charge it every Sunday and it works all week....3 1/2 years old now. I don’t really use it when I’m outside around the truck but if it ever dies I’ll probably go to the 450 just for the added range

Trainer using drugs

Think in FMCSA I read it was ok if it was her belly and not off her butt.

I remember someone in here claiming their trainer was blowing lines of coke off of a hooker's belly. I just thought I had a bad trainer.
