    I would like some clarification on the bunk house/motel situation in the valdosta terminal. When I laid over several weeks ago, everyone was at the motel and the bunk house was empty. The drivers said don't ask any questions go to the motel, does not work like this at the other bunk houses.
    Are those arriving at the terminal first need to go to the bunk house or motel.

    As of now,the first 3 in stays in the bunkroom.Some of the Mem and Nas drivers pay for their room out of pocket.

    Drivers have been instructed to use the bunkrooms until all rooms are full, then go to the motel.

    Easyrider , i was told that this was the policy till it was found out that some drivers were purposely goofing off to be the last ones in so they could go to the motel ,then i was told that Leadfoot ultra changed it so that when the inbound super knows of 4 coming then he would send the first one in to the motel , this problem might have went away now ,i don't know ,maybe you could check with him about this "one place special circumstance" situation , if you didn't already ... just want to make sure all the info is in for everyone to understand

    They changed it again.Memphis drivers said it wasn't fair...Last ones in to the motel.My personal opinion is that all floaters be allowed to go to the motel,since they are on the road all week.The layover guys are home the following day.

    Valdosta Bunkroom Policy

    Gentlemen,

    a9faninnc is correct, the policy for the bunkrooms in Valdosta is the same as the remainder of the system.

    The first drivers to arrive are to go to the bunkroom until it is filled and then the motel will be used.

    The only time that this is not the case, is if a driver arrives ahead of the bunkroom being full, and would like to pay for his own motel room, then he is welcomed to do so.

    It was mentioned in an earlier post about floaters possibly being able to go to the motel, anytime they are laid over because of being away from home.

    In the past few months we have tried to update several of the bunkrooms, so that no matter who was laid over, they could have a comfortable rest period, so we are not inclined to change this policy.

    Thanks Mark

    VAL has a new fuel pump online on their yard! cool.
    since when?

    noone ever said anything about it, so i thought i would :1036316054:

    i took extra measures in ATL to top off b4 i went to VAL to layover so i wouldn't have to go to the gas station and i could make it back to ATL the next night. it would have saved me some time if i would have known about the pump.

    i guess the secret is out now.

    Get a terminal in Ocala, FL. I heard through the grapevine that Benton closed it's doors there. I will go past there to check for sure.
