    When I was a city driver at my old SC our weather policy was a 50 pound bag of blue rock salt and if you got stuck and had to be pulled out you got wrote up ! I'm taking advantage of this new policy as much as possible.

    Back in the bad old Viking days when the company made bad decisions all the time, one of those bad decisions was layovers. Another of their bad decisions was seven day linehaul operations. We also ran noon to noon log books. You had to be able to project available hours two and three days ahead as extra board drivers were subject to forced ABC and sometimes D dispatches.
    What were they thinking!

    What was so difficult about a noon to noon log book when you work at night?

    I didn't work nights on a schedule. I didn't say they were difficult. I worked over the road, irregular routes and hours. I ran 48 states and Canada pulling a reefer when I ran those. I didn't see the house for four to six weeks at a time.

    Not all of us started out with gravy in LTL. Some of us cut our teeth the hard way first running like real cowboys.
