Well we picked up our load in Clearfield and are at the flying j in Ogden. Well we are going the southern route to Livermore, Ca. so we avoid going over Donner Pass. Those who don't know Livermore is near San Francisco. Got our weight hopefully I set the tandoms correctly. Be safe out there all.

For California your rearmost trailer axle can be no further back than centered on the 40 foot mark. 40 feet from kingpin to center of the rearmost axel. Hope you got it correct.

Texting in a moving truck is not the easiest thing to do. I think California has the worst roads.

I use voice texting. I have Straight Talk and use my phone as my hotspot. I get great signal almost everywhere I go.

Good to know. It's kind of hard to do when you have a mentor in the truck.

Well Big Scott

Inquiring minds want to k own what was wrong with your tractor? Seeing you're in Arizona now?

I'm still in SLC. Hopefully the truck will be done today.
