40k lbs of Beet sweetener? Never hauled it before but it was nasty.. Although it was air loaded on from a train car really quickly.. like maybe 20 mins quick!😁

From Conley, GA to the pickup in Birmingham,AL to the delivery in Union, MS... And wait for it... Back to Charlotte, NC.. so.. 160miles to the pick up/ 195miles for the load and about 680miles to the tankwash.. so.. 1035miles give or take. And about 800 of it is empty...and in the South... Happy Birthday to me!

3 Skidded Steel Coils, 44k, 800 some miles from Waterbury CT to Bridgeview IL. That Waterbury place has a damned tight turn. And some 12' 7" bridges if you turn out the wrong way (I did, in case you are wondering. Good news, I now know that my truck is less than 12' 7"!! :) )

Delivered this afternoon a 17, 860 lbs load of insulation ingredients from Ft Smith, AR to Owens Corning in Irving, TX. 405 total miles. Encountered the worst hail I've ever seen after leaving the consignee. Hail for nearly 10 minutes, bigger than quarters. Scary driving waiting for the windows to shatter. Lost some paint, but no glass.


The customer the freight is being delivered to. Also referred to as "the receiver". The shipper is the customer that is shipping the goods, the consignee is the customer receiving the goods.

Linehaul here so I don't know what's in the trailer as they are sealed, but my lead trailer was 23,960 ( our limit is 24k) and rear was 20k+ total weight on our scale in yard was 79,960. Cutting it closer than I like but luckily I only pass 1 scale and it was closed.


Linehaul drivers will normally run loads from terminal to terminal for LTL (Less than Truckload) companies.

LTL (Less Than Truckload) carriers will have Linehaul drivers and P&D drivers. The P&D drivers will deliver loads locally from the terminal and pick up loads returning them to the terminal. Linehaul drivers will then run truckloads from terminal to terminal.

Oops lol. It had not loaded the pic before I hit submit.


Body mass index (BMI)

BMI is a formula that uses weight and height to estimate body fat. For most people, BMI provides a reasonable estimate of body fat. The BMI's biggest weakness is that it doesn't consider individual factors such as bone or muscle mass. BMI may:

  • Underestimate body fat for older adults or other people with low muscle mass
  • Overestimate body fat for people who are very muscular and physically fit

It's quite common, especially for men, to fall into the "overweight" category if you happen to be stronger than average. If you're pretty strong but in good shape then pay no attention.

Delivered the latest one early this morning at a grocery warehouse. Trailer of 26,500 lbs that I pulled 1715 miles from General Mills in Roanoke, TX to Sacramento, CA. Great miles, but lots of windy conditions heading west on I-40.
