Planet fitness or anything while on the road?

I go to PF at least 3 times a week, my success to visiting so frequently is that I am creative with my parking and willing to walk 2 to 3 miles if necessary. Get on google maps, you can find a walmart half the time to park at that is within a block or two away.

Should companies be required to issue you a clean truck?

I am curious as to yall's expectations. When a company assigns you a new/ used truck to move into or use, should it be clean? Or is it normal for the driver to clean someone elses mess? Thanks.

Qutting Smoking.

I quit after 15 years of heavy smoking by first switching over to chew so i could immediately stop inhaling cancer smoke. Chew was amazing with a monster blast of nicotine to the head, very pleasurable, but after a month i down graded to nicotine gum for 2 months which was also amazing and addicting, but stopped that finslly.

Knight Swift Merger: Driver, and Customer Benefits

Should you start with knight, then want to work for swift, or any other of their companys like barr nunn or abaleen, there would need to be a 3 month gap from when you quit knight due to a compete clause.

Take a hike #1

For someone in reasonable shape, probably 4 hours round trip, about 4 miles, but taking an uber to the trail head could also be an option allowing for more time at the river or hiking further on past the water fall

Reefers

Finally had to quit Prime after 21 months because of that reefer noise messing up my sleep, went dry van with night, same money, more "normal" hour delivery times, no more wasted hours getting trailer wash outs, and many more quality of life improvements, and no more disrupted sleep
