Good morning everyone here on TT. I just wanted to wish each and every driver and reader here on TT a very Merry Christmas, Happy New Year or Seasons Greetings. I know that it is early but the wife and I are leaving in the morning to travel to our son and daughter in law's for his 40th birthday in Madison, Ms. Between his driving job from Ms. to Texas and back weekly and his US Navy reserve duties they stay pretty busy. Then we travel on to Lexington Park, Md. to spend the holidays with our daughter and son in law until New Year. and then make the slow trek back to Florida to wait out the winter before hitting the road again in May with the 5th wheel. I wish each and every one of you a safe and joyous holiday. Hopefully you will be with family if you want or just safe, warm and enjoy the holiday. I will be back with you all on Jan. 5.

Blessed HanaRamaKwanzaMas to all y'all. That greeting will be likely equally offensive, or equally inclusive and diverse, depending on your viewpoint.

From my viewpoint here in Cordes Junction, AZ (I-17 MM262) the holidays are shaping up to look OK. Flying back to Hellinois on Christmas Eve to surprise my 87 year old mom for Christmas, then flying back Christmas Day. Anticipating my son and his wife to fly out for a few days twixt New Years and Christmas. We got snow last night, and ice, and rain, and thunder. As I was driving back down the mountain from Camp Verde through the brutal heavy blowing snow (sans road chem treatments) I told The Beloved, Mrs. Curmudgeon, "Tonight is one of those nights I don't miss driving a truck". Most of the line haulers that run that route were already either on the shoulders or running about 20mph with flashers on.

Be safe, please, and remember that those of us formerly in the mix sure DO APPRECIATE what you subject yourselves to for us. Thank you for your service to our Nation - not in a military sense, but in a "willingly giving of yourselves and your talents to make our lives better" sense.


Line Haul:

Linehaul drivers will normally run loads from terminal to terminal for LTL (Less than Truckload) companies.

LTL (Less Than Truckload) carriers will have Linehaul drivers and P&D drivers. The P&D drivers will deliver loads locally from the terminal and pick up loads returning them to the terminal. Linehaul drivers will then run truckloads from terminal to terminal.


Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.
