    Most drivers that run I-65 in Indiana know of the scale houses & the 50mm Seymour, IN exit closed for many years. The main reason that both sides were closed for years is the Indiana Legislators would not fund the operation. But, I-65 in IN runs from Mobile, AL to Gary, IN & has tripled the traffic in the last 20 years. With the latest technology & the amount of the fines it pays for itself with a little left over. And any elected official that sees something that will fund it self will jump on that bandwagon in a heartbeat. Run legal or reach for the check book. Von.

    Ump, I just now noticed that you are the love child of Big Dave & Billy Lo. Any comments? Also, if true, are you mentioned in the will for COOP Dispatch? If so, don't forget to carry on the family name of Coop Coop & Coop. Kind of like Coke or Pepsi. The show must go on. von.

    My home state DOT said less than a thousand over is a documented warning. I won't knowingly run over on axle, but gross is registration, not safety. To each his own, but 83 when I could run 92 doesn't seem out of line. Take it a step further, neighboring state allows 22,5 per, but I stick to 20. And scale EVERYTHING before I head out. Had an 11 that was 21,3 on the drives, somebody missed a bill of about 7g in my estimate. Good w'end fellas.

    No Coop for me!! I filed for emancipation when I was 6 and moved into the barn with the goats. The last straw was Dad (aka Big Dave) wanting me to someday fill his boots at Coop. I misunderstood and filled his boots with stuff from the chicken coup. As far as Billy Lo goes I'm not totally sure he's my dad. Tried to get him on the Jerry Springer show but it turns out you can't get his ego and Big Dave's hat in the same room. So I just figured it had to be him due to the fact I'm the only line driver he respects.

    :horseshit: You had "constipation" as a kid and I sent you out to the barn so you'd learn to poop like the animals. But I guess that was you that pooped in my boots and then you ran away...and took quite a few goats with you!!
    I couldn't make the Springer show because there were a few bridges needing repaired.
    It's not Billy's ego, but that damned tanning bed and mower that he always brings with him. No room for my Hat.

    I will be there ready to clock in. I just need to see your current Certificate of Workman's Comp Insurance & that it is paid up to date & please have the meat wagon standing by. Also, a number for your insurance agent who can confirm coverage, relieving my thoughts that the insurance document is a forgery. Thanks for the job offer. von.

    Von, "If I cleared it with Dave, would you ride with Billy this weekend?"

    Is he cute & how much does it pay? No, just kidding about the cuteness. I think. The better half has me confused with an outfit called Merry Maids. And, she buys dinner on Saturday afternoon. So, between the Pledge & the Tidy Bowl, I have run out of hours. Therefore being unable to ride Billy, I mean ride with Billy & 39 cents a mile I have to decline the offer. But hey, thanks for thinking of me. Your turn. von.

    I’m sorry, Billy is hiding at his Terminal, on his mower, running around doing citizens arrest on line drivers breaking the sound barrier with their speed. He presently doesn’t have time to do any runs. Gosh dang, I am glad I am not going to SEA today. I drive so fast, he’ll just see a green and white flash go by.

    It’s the results of the tax reform. Didn’t you get the memo. Wait, COOP didn’t give y’all the bonus. Check under Dave’s hat. I bet there’s all sorts of money there.

    Von, Dave has the document you requested, its not Workmans Comp, its Workmans (Complaint) Insurance.
    He thinks he will be using it more often!

    Workman's complaint insurance. Ya could support an entire third world country on just the wages you pay to handle the complaints in this industry. As a insurance adjustor in a earlier life, I have one word the complaint department should use every time. Denied. von.
