Ya. Cali doesn’t allow triples. Can’t wait to c how they are loaded. How are you doing? Staying busy?
Can’t wait to see how they’re loaded ? What does that mean sir ? They’re loaded like any other trailer. Heaviest trailer in the front and lightest trailer in the back. With something in between in the middle lol

Maybe he means hooked. I remember just starting out in LTL with minimal experience. Reddaway taught me everything and I was having a ball learning it. I always appreciated the doors Reddaway opened for me. I hope Yellow treats him at least half as good as Reddaway did us back then.

Oh absolutely. I really don’t think a company name does anything. It’s the people in it around it that makes this stuff tolerable. We all started the same way. Head spinning lol

Lol yeah Ryan is a strange out of touch guy. He got pushed out of Denver to Vegas. He’s never really connected to his guys and he’s been there for close to 10 years now lol. He really is a nice guy just gets railroaded sometimes in Vegas. Not the strongest personality lol. Pulling triples are easy. Just look out the front windshield and don’t worry what’s going on behind lol just playing lol you’ll have some sets that pull perfect and some that wiggle the entire way. You’ll be fine just listen, ask questions, find your routine and realize you don’t know Sh@t.
