WOW! 51 trucks in Sunbury and Youngwood! You guys are killing me! Seriously, I enjoyed spending time with all of you. Most of you had no problems, the ones I found were easily corrected that day. Nice job, ladies and gentlemen. Keep up the good work. We had some great discussions about CSA and EOBRs, with a little bit of CARB thrown in for good measure. I think some of us might have even discussed hot rods and Harleys. Mercer has absolutely great people and I had a great time underneath all the trucks. Well, not as much in the rain at Youngwood. Whatever.

This Sunday, October 7, I will be at the HIA office in Arkadelphia, AR from 3-8 doing LKY inspections. I will do any that I don’t get to on Monday, October 8 at the office from 7:30-noon. If you know you are going to be there, be sure that you or your coordinator calls my Administrative Assistant, Maria Lafavers, and get on my list.

CHANGE IN DATE FOR NEWBERRY, SC! Due to a scheduling conflict, I have to back my Newberry trip up one week. NEW DATES ARE Tuesday 10/23 and Wednesday 10/24, 7:30-5:00 both days at Dowd’s Diesel. If you are on the list already, you do not have to call again. If you are not on my Newberry list, and plan on being there, be sure you or your coordinator lets Maria know.

Tampa Inspection dates are still Monday, November 12 and Tuesday, November 13. New inspection location will be announced later this month. If you will be at Tampa, be sure Maria has you on that list.

I look forward to spending time with as many of you as possible at these locations. Be safe.
