Hey Rob did you eat the 72oz?

Nope. Even if I did I would feel miserable afterwards. Just a 9 oz ribeye.

Reminds me of the John Candy/Dan Akroid movie, The Great Outdoors.

Did a reset in Uncasville Connecticut this weekend. Dropped in Plainfield but there wasn't much by way of truckstops nearby. There was a terminal about a mile away from my drop but who wants to do a reset at a terminal? ...lol. Lucky for me the Mohican Sun casino was only 22 miles from me and has been a great reset location. Big, beautiful casino with a great poker room.

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.

You were kidding right I know this is old post but you were kidding right?? That was hilariously funny !!!

Not exactly pleasant but a funny "postcard" theme only an independent could get away with. I-81 sb virginia.

Not to be a stick-in-the-mud, but this isn't funny to me one bit.

It advertises intent and to that extent, what a complete a**hole the driver is. Imagine if you will if by accident he did run a minivan into the weeds...what exactly do you think a lawyer would do with this?

We promote safety and professionalism on this forum. This photo is neither of those things. I've requested that Brett remove it.

So a Dodge, a Plymouth, a DeSoto, and a Chrysler were hanging around a truck stop parking lot....

These were on a specialty vehicle hauler I parked next to at the Love's in Boardman, OR from I-84.

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Awesome!!! I always thought they'd haul cars like that in an enclosed trailer.

This was the sunrise yesterday over the Platte River, east of Lincoln NE

These four are better looking from a distance, really cool, but not show pieces. Those enclosed trailers cost a bunch more for the owner to use as a transport option, too.

There are two newer Porsches on the rear of the trailer, but those don't do anything for me.

Very cool nonetheless Rob.

I once worked at a Porsche / Audi / Suzuki dealer. (Long story)...

Porsches were always delivered in fully enclosed (side-curtain) haulers. There was always a "special" little something in that last (to be unloaded) spot over the cab - 911 "whale-tail" turbo for example.

There was always great excitement and anticipation until the last little jewel was unloaded.

They still get me excited!
