    Good to hear, on schedule. Waiting to here if they're pulling out of SOM to stop paying monthly for Herring

    Announced in wage meetings was that YNG will be relocating and we will be adding a 2nd PIT to the North

    YNG needs a new yard for sure, so that's great. A second service center to cover PIT?

    Went to YNG last week, I figured it would be a lot bigger than it is... old CF yard.

    I think all the old CF yards look cool, nostalgic back to the good old days!

    Regional p&d manager was in town, and a 2nd PIT is on the table. He said they are blown out at the current facility.

    Anyone else notice that freight has suddenly dropped off?? Kinda makes me nervous, it's too early and we've hired a ton of new guys... I saw we raised our rates, hopefully that's just causing a minor hiccup.

    Not around here. We just picked up two new switch accounts. I hope it's just a hiccup out your way, you are right, it is wayyyy too early.

    Northwest is booming. Giving our dispatch a good run in mathematics trying to figure out legal weight for triples when everything coming north is 18,000 and above. That's okay, we'll call Super Billy. He can hitch a team of goats to the trailers and pull them. Think of the fuel savings. Wait, won't work Ump has all of his goats. Oh well.

    The way we've been over hiring I really hope you're saving up some money for the big slow down in the spring.

    Send them down here, after you get them trained. We need drivers and no one can pass a drug test anymore!!

    Wish you would refrain from such talk, women and children could be eavesdropping
