Are you ever at that marathon Bobcat? I'm there everyday for

Thanks to the Joy's of Linehaul Sometime between 3 and 5 am usually. Depending on if my trailers are ready or not lol

Linehaul:

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.

Haha yeah I hear that well maybe I'll catch you in there. Be cool to meet a member. If you ever see a yellow and red Pete 389 day cab hauling a Dean's trailer that would be me.

Day Cab:

A tractor which does not have a sleeper berth attached to it. Normally used for local routes where drivers go home every night.

It would be, I know I've seen Dean's trailers there I just don't remember what was pulling them. If you see a Old Dominion set behind the building under the big light that is never on it's probably me

Big Scott keeps on it

First, this guy was gone within an hour. Second, he was sitting in the driver's seat seeing that he was in the way. Third, at the time there were many spots, some two or three in a row. He really had no good excuse.

As far as the guys pulling one RV or boat, may be a "hot shot" delivering it. I hate when they are small enough to fit in car parking and take a truck spot. I also hate when small box trucks take one of our spots. However, I get a spot every night. I always know where, I'm sleeping.

He clearly did not realize the err of his ways (maybe not a professional driver) and like Old School said probably didn’t want to back the non-commercial rig into a spot.

If he was really blocking your way, why didn’t you politely ask him to move?

Yeah I don't think we can rip into too this guy too hard here. Just this morning I'm positive a driver was fast asleep in the far lane of the fuel island. So can't say every truck driver out there is setting the gold standard for parking etiquette.
