Insightful, helpful, humorous, literary, entertaining, obnoxious, disturbing, my comments run the whole gamut.

Brett needs a special "I'm watching you" emoji for the moderators.

In my defense, this is Trucking "Truth."

I'm at our terminal in Joplin if you feel like a long road trip this morning for a visit.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Would love to, but I've got a full day.

Agreed, he IS handsome! That's why they are breaking bread (with Gary, whomever THAT is!)

I had the opportunity and pleasure of hosting Bullit on a ride-along yesterday...remembered to snap a selfie. We talked trucking most of the day. It was interesting to witness how his perspective shifted as the day progressed and he quickly absorbed everything. The only thing he did not observe was a trailer re-spot at a store. We tentatively planned another ride-along with something more complex; a consolidated reefer run.

Great day for driving, sunny with spring-like conditions.

Reefer:

A refrigerated trailer.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.
