CRST is still doing that, Driving conditions calls from HQ in Cedar Rapids? Drivers still not allowed to use their own best judgment?

Nothing wrong w/ a good deep sleep, Stevo! Hubby is still 'on' his.. for about 5 more minutes.

Told the 'boi' to bring the rig home yesternight (am) but.. Einstein had my Jeep .. so swapped 'em .. and forgot 4wd... I'd rather him stick to 18 wheels (in 4wd) than MINE selectively !! LoL...

Maybe next time. This IS good sleeping weather.. gotta say!!

Yes Pack Rat they are lol late reply since now we camp out As out CVS load reset til 8am tomorrow to SLC. 5th is our pre set 3 days off....

Bad thing was 2nd shutdown in Aurora NE for 2.5 days, they never sent update was ok to go on. So I sent em a macro tellin em we are leaving NOW sky is clear I-80 as well. Not like we get paid due to crap weather lol

They tried to put us on a load outta Hayward to Jersey City. I know how to play weekend dispatches game......Ignore em to get unassigned. They blew smoke up our skirts sayin they will get us home on time. Like I ain't heard that BS line before lol

So bright & early our DM sends us 2 different CVS loads get us closer to home......Daylight Transport, in Jersey City, is a real nightmare getting in & out of, down some narrow alley......

Dm:

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.
