Anyone haul OOG? I work for a logistics company and all of the sudden we are getting a ton of direct dray requests from Houston to places like Kansas. Apparently there is a big solar project coming.

Bought a little grill for the truck. Back in the day it was common to have cook outs on the back row of the truck stop.

Interesting cab layout. Can't bitch since it's lightyears from my '74 coe, but I'd have changed a few things.

I've been watching old Ice Road Truckers lately. I'm fully aware it's 'reality' TV, but where does the cameraman sleep if they're stranded somewhere overnight? You can tell there's usually a chase vehicle involved too.

Is DOT blitz all week this week? It’s normally 72 hrs I think but I heard they were talking about dragging it out for a few weeks.

Since they wouldn’t answer.

The Department of Transportation (DOT) conducts an annual inspection program that is commonly referred to as Blitz Week. The aim of Blitz Week is the inspection of all over the road equipment and the drivers who use it. The name, however, is a bit of a misnomer as Blitz Week actually only runs over a three-day period.

Trucks, equipment, and even drivers age with time and with excessive use. Blitz week is a way to weed out the equipment or drivers that are not safe for the road or need updating in order to prevent problems and potential accidents.  

In this article, we’ll take a look at this inspection program by the numbers and the DOT inspection focus. 

We’ll also talk a bit about the penalties for failed inspections. So, use this article proactively!

The blitz is bullshit. It makes life hell on everyone in the industry for the sake of making some more money.

Road check / safety blitz week is usually the first week of June and was cancelled I thought this year? Usually they focus on some time of equipment enforcement like brakes or tandems. 
 

This week was some already scheduled driver awareness week that the main focus over the road would be speeding apparently. I haven’t really heard any issues from it like we normally do during road check week. 
 

here’s some info on it.

Snow dog is the kind of dick that’s usually causing all the traffic problems. He thinks he knows better than everyone else and tries to live out some weird traffic enforcement fantasy by Cutting off trucks and brake checking which causes everyone else to slow down or won’t let trucks change lanes by speeding up to block them. And all kinds of other douche bag behavior.
 
Also you stupid fuck. There were 4 of us in the left lane that day all the way through town. And each one of us had a permit from TXDOT requiring us to be in that lane.
 
So sit down and shut up and let the grown men go about their business.



Nope. None of what you just blathered about my driving is true, Cletus.

This sumbitch tied up the inside lane from Buda a48a2a9bfd9ef3d1e789104ae98a426a.jpg
to Riverside this morning. But I’m sure he had a permit.

Looks like he's got a long line of cars in front of him. He's really backing things up.

I cut around him at the 290 interchange.

When I looked back, he had the entire inside lane blocked, going 50 mph.

Peeps had to go around him.

Probably a load of dildos coming your way.

All I know is I drove from Nashville to Houston the other week and I've never seen as many 1) 18 wheelers/trucks/semi's/whatever and 2) RV's/trailers/5thwheels/whatever. It made the drive absolutely miserable. It took 4.5 hours to get from Nashville to Memphis alone. 

I guess Covid-19 related; anyways what is usually a 12 hour drive turned into a 15 hour drive, all-in (had to stop when planned on doing it in one haul due to the delays).

I just ask that people don’t fuck with me.
The worst part of my day for the last 30 years has involved 2 hours of IH 35, every day.most of the grief is asshole truckers.
Be polite and have some fucking manners, we’re all in this shit together.
Whether it’s jackass pickup drivers with Punisher decals, or some dumb fuck who is dead heading out of Bum Fuck Egypt, just quit being assholes.

Managed to get her up to 110 in IH 10 on the way to Terlingua behind all the psycho truckers hauling pipeline out of Houston.

That’s alright, Richard just shows off his filth wagon to the officer as an excuse for his late registration.

The waiver from the state is still in effect. Vehicle title and registration renewals are currently being waived due to Covid. It is not a citable offense nor good reason for contact currently.

Were you afraid you were going to roll back and hit him? Or that his truck was gonna breathe on your car or rub its dick on you?

Probably getting it laid.
