Don’t know about the stinker! But the Sinclair’s on average have fairly good food.

Welcome to California, Donna. This time of year is when I enjoy the weather the most. Michael also often parks at Flying J in Lebec and has never had trouble getting a spot there. He also likes it because it's usually a bit cooler up there.

Donna, Michael was at the Marten yard in Jurupa yesterday but now headed back to Nevada.

You were lucky to find parking there. That place is always packed. I usually park 30 miles to the north at the Flying J in Lebec. Also, the Flying J is at the top of the pass. It’s nice knowing that you don’t have to climb that hill in the morning. If you continue south on I-5, Castaic is the last place to park for about 140 miles until you get to San Diego.. Welcome to Kalifornia.

I was saving flying j for a back up if I could not find parking at one of the 3 . Has Michael told you, how horrible it is to park at the jurupa yard. However when I do have to go there to wait on a load incoming., there a movie theater around the block, I watched the Elvis movie last time. I’m picking up a load here in Stockton this afternoon, plenty of space on street for a 10 and I’m headed to Boise bright and early morning.

Have you tried the Famers Boy restaurants across the street from the Jurupa Terminal. It's been a while since I've been, but it was good back then. I imagine that it's still good. Probably all of the terminals in the Jurupa area are terrible for parking. I know that Swift is. The Swift terminal is so bad, that people have to park trucks and drop trailers on the fuel isles overnight. There might be one fuel isle there accessible, and it will probably be one of the ones not working. All of Swift's West coast terminals are that way. Will you be taking the I-5 or 99 into Stockton? The I-5 is much less congested.

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.

That's awesome!! But for Cali, of course...in my opinion anyway...

Hey, maybe you can even meet up w/Laura and PackRat out that way, even at a Sinclairs, perhaps.

Stay safe, take pix;

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.
