Thanksgiving dinners for truckers?

I'm specifically thinking of the Chicago area.

Does anyone know of restaurants or truck stops offering free Thanksgiving meals to truckers who are on the road and can't make it home?

Firearms?

I have a question. Fo any of you guys caryy firearms in your trucks during any of your trips? I'm asking because I have to go from Chicago to Massachusetts to make a pickup. Because of certain situations unique to this trip which I would prefer not to go into, I am wondering if it would be advisable to carry a weapon on this trip. I don't know what all the laws are from state to state on the route I am traveling (essentially I-80 through Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, etc.). What do any of you do in a situation where you feel it might be safer to carry during a trip?

CDL Medical Certificate - license cancellation?

Thank you. I went to the West Chicago facility and got everything straightened out.

One thing I learned: Make sure the provider includes their Registration Number as well as their National Registry Number. The ILSOS won't accept an MEC without both. The provider forgot to include their Registration Number and I had to go all the way back to the clinic to have them add it.

Also, FYI, the West Chicago facility is closing for good after this Friday. The landlord wants to use the property for other purposes so the building is going to be demolished and the land is going to be repurposed. They are looking for somewhere to open a new facility in the same general area but that won't be for awhile yet.

About transmissions - multi-speed rear axles

Range selectors/splitters, do just that split the gears, from low to high range and back again...... 1st thru 5th low, splitter up, high range 6th thru 10th etc (all in the trans, not the Diff's)

I know what Low and High Range is. My question was, how is this accomplished if not by a multi-speed differential? Does the transmission itself contain two sets of gears which are selected by means of the Range and High/Low Selectors? How does the transmission "know" which gear is being "requested" via the shift lever and Range Selectors?

Best route from Anaheim to Chicago

I am leaving Anaheim, CA thos Tiesday to take a load to Chicago. I am trying to decide the best route yo take. There are two ways to go - either follow "Route 66" (I 15 to I 40 to I 55) or go I 15 to I 70 to I 80. Does anyone know what the weather forecast is for Colorado and whether chains are more or less likely to be required on one route or the other?

GeoTab

My question essentially is, I need to make sure it's properly set up. I'm renting a Ryder truck this week and they use GeoTab. The company I'm with has no regular fleet - they only need to rent a truck once a year for an annual trade convention. I'm reading through their Driver Training Guide and it assumes a company that has a regular fleet and a regular staff of drivers. This company has neither.
