Happens every yearembarrassed.gif I will be taking time off. Some states are better than others, but I have seen some with crazy wait times. I don’t mind the inspections, but I do mind waiting extended time in line to get inspected. The states that roll one out, then one in are the best. Just my opinion

Funny you mention time off... Me too I came into my home shop today for work on a trailer I got loaded lastnight. Another driver had spent a week up in the northeast without many miles to show for it. So since I'm moving soon and wanted to skip the Blitz I let him have my load and I headed home to help pack.

I'm hearing route 30 going through Indiana gets pretty bad but guesd ill find out. Either I'm expecting anything and everything. Dropping off the rig at the shop tomorrow for the weekend to get combed over. The trailers, which are the customers, claim they are inspection ready but i take that with a grain of salt.

I'll be headed to south Carolina, which doesn't use prepass. I might actually get inspected this year.. it would be a first during any blitz.

This would be my first year on the road.....is it really that bad? Asking about the Southeast. Our trucks are newer and I always do pretrip so not worried but don't want to get held up a bunch of times....

I got lucky during the last one about brakes, didn't get called in at all. This time, I so happen to request my home time during that time, what are the odds? I have a newer truck, so chances are it'll pass but some of our trailers might not make it. rofl-1.gif
