Haha! I'm famous!

It's a great photo. My daughter took it, and it turned out really good.


It’s one of my favorites...

Yes, it is a very nice picture.

You could force them to take it down, and could probably win a lawsuit if you wanted to.

While it is true anyone can take a picture of you in public and use it, they cannot for commercial purposes, and they definitely can't steal your picture and use it.

I ran a load of Aluminum beams from Delhi, LA to San Diego, CA this week. ....snip...

One more thing... As I was driving back to Delhi my dispatcher calls and says, "Hurry back in if you can. I've got another load headed to that same customer ..."

Old School, if you are heading back to San Diego and you have time for lunch/coffee/etc. I would enjoy the opportunity to meet and say Hello!

Depending on the day/time, it should be possible for me to drive (pretty much anywhere in San Diego) to connect.


Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Thanks David, that's a kind gesture and something I would generally enjoy doing. I've enjoyed meeting several of our members here doing that very thing. Unfortunately, I'm going to be rushed when I hit this customer Tuesday morning. I've got to get in and out as quickly as possible and move on to my backhaul situation.

Thanks for the offer! Maybe it will work out once you're on the road.

Safe travels! It will be fun to say Hello sometime, out on the road.
