Didn’t even pack my bike this week.

HOS is complicated. There are day requirments. Duty day requirements. Block hour requirements. Weekly, monthly, and yearly look backs.
@ Jetlink « Tue 3:47:14 pm »
still can’t work 7 days in a row. I will hit my max again on Friday. Then I’m a pumkin till early next week.
@ Jetlink « Tue 3:46:42 pm »
So every few days I become legal for a few more hours as the hours drop off.

Walky complete. 6.85 miles on the beach and boardwalk and streets at Myrtle Beach. Beautiful area. First time laying over here. I see why it is popular.

Also, the pool of box cars used to service the GM Pontiac Metals plant are gone and I haven’t seen that plant switched in over a month too.
@ AARR « Tue 1:58:59 pm »
I drove by the scrap metal yard in Pontiac and didn’t see any gondola’s on their property. It’s possible there might be some a little deeper in their property that would be out of my view. But since I haven’t seen it switched in over a month I suspect they are not shipping by rail at the moment.

drove down okemos road, then drove the loop down Morris to Pohl to Towner. Not really well developed trails or anything, but good enough to walk on.
@ Jetlink « Tue 10:01:55 am »
My Mom’s sister also lives right on the edge of the game area. On Okemos road. Nice area. I used to do clandestine mountain biking there. I don’t technically think it was allowed.
@ Jetlink « Tue 10:00:47 am »
Lived there from November 2001-April 2003
@ ~Z~ « Tue 9:34:51 am »
neat, didn’t know that jetlink. So quiet out there - literally didn’t see any other people while hiking, no passing cars either.

I used to live about 1 mile from the Portland State Game area, right on the Grand River.
@ ~Z~ « Mon 9:21:49 pm »
rode the railroad ROW through town, and biked about 12 miles, then hiked a good 7 miles on the ROW and around Portland State Game Area.

What you should do is ask her if she has any photos of her and her "boyfriend" on her phone of them together. if she doesn’t, then she’s lying. If you looked on my phone, you’d see about 500 photos of me and Luci (my girlfriend) because she and I are always around each other, you see my point?
She doesn’t have a phone. I don’t let her. I’m mean like that.

If only the trucker put as much effort into calling the DOT tag that he did jumping up and down trying to stop the train
@ Saturnalia « Sun 8:34:00 pm »
@JT, I thought the exact same thing. Best train v vehicle collision video ever...it’s in focus, on subject, and the right orientation
@ J T « Sun 8:13:26 pm »
The vehicles flying in the air...wow. That has to be one of the best train/truck collisions I’ve ever seen. I hope the crew and passengers were ok.
@ J T « Sun 8:11:04 pm »
Wow, kudos to the person filming that and holding their phone in the proper orientation. And the guy jumping up and down like a chimpanzee trying to stop the train...hahahahahha

That happened on my wedding day. Me and 2 of my grooms men were members on another forum and all 3 of us were posting there all at the same time. It’s still referred to as the single most pathetic moment in that board’s history even though they no longer want anything to do with me because of political opinions.
