Ya’ll crack me up!! I headed to the northwest for the first time. This has been an experience for sure. One I will not soon repeat... Rainy doesn’t suprise me with your home state... They charge ransom fees to get out of your statewtf.gif

i was sitting in the front row at a Rita Rudner show in Vegas as she told the story of her husband not wanting to stop for directions. She looked at me and said "He acted like people get kidnapped for asking, am.i right?" i responded, "yeah, in jersey thats the only way to get people to stay"

Guys it's okay, I'm alive! Seems our yard was secured enough, probably due to the new anti-witch defense they installed!

Ok, I’ve seen plenty of broomsticks, but never one with a fifth wheel and trailer.

I don't know if I'm special or too stupid to know if there is some secret setting, but my location updates automatically. Never have to do a thing!

It updates automatically here in the forum if you're logged in. It will ask you if you'd like to share your location. If you answer "no" then you have to do it manually. Otherwise it does it automatically.

I use a hotspot to connect to the web and a lot of times it shows me in Connecticut for some reason when I'm actually in the Adirondacks of New York.

DAC:

Drive-A-Check Report

A truck drivers DAC report will contain detailed information about their job history of the last 10 years as a CDL driver (as required by the DOT).

It may also contain your criminal history, drug test results, DOT infractions and accident history. The program is strictly voluntary from a company standpoint, but most of the medium-to-large carriers will participate.

Most trucking companies use DAC reports as part of their hiring and background check process. It is extremely important that drivers verify that the information contained in it is correct, and have it fixed if it's not.

Good grief! I use AT&T to connect to the Web most of the time. I have no clue why it keeps moving my location around like that.

Actually I'll be heading to Banff, Alberta, Canada to the Canadian Rockies to do some ice climbing from March 29th to April 7th. So if my location shows Banff, Canada then you'll know why.
