I've loaded there. Long line of trucks waiting to get it in, but they keep the line moving fairly quickly.

I'm a stalker

I've learned that about you!

Yeah its in southern, Virginia. I believe the company was called Huber. Peculiar name for a lumber company.

Crystal, Virginia? Never heard of it.

I had to look it up! Between Brookneal and South Boston. That's in the middle of nowhere.

I'm loading at a Lumber Mill in Lillie, LA. Probably another town nobody is familiar with. Here's the entry path I take to get into this dump. I'll post a photo of my load after they finish their lunch and siesta!

That looks just like where I was in Lagrange yesterday. Muddy, narrow, and stuff strewn everywhere.

Must be a hot market this week for wood-related products?

Spaceman, I had to laugh at that load! It was supposed to be a full truck load running close to 48,000 pounds. There was some sort of snafu in the email communications and all they had ready was those five bundles. It all pays the same when you're the driver. I took what they had and called it a win!

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

When you can get paid the same for 4,800 lb in lieu of 48,000, it's a good day!

Here's 3 titanium rods hauled to NY from CA. My dad advised these are worth big bucks. Nice thing about titanium is no rust action so no tarp action.
