So now you're in my spot Jim. ;D I did about 6 trips up that way last summer and stopped off at Exit 40 each and everyone of them. :) Lotsa action in a little space.  8) Glad you shot the Star.....i was thinking they were a goner. Now the Bean Team's another story.......i remember them being posted in Fallen Flags so that trailer must have been bought at auction maybe.

Not a Beam tractor but the trailer is pretty new, I thought it might be an O/O

I don't know what it is, but I have a fascination with the Perdue private fleet.  Love those!

Me too. :) I think it's the variety & livery and usually a very clean truck. ;D

When I was an O/O for Dealers Transit we got our interchange papers with Wm Corbitt signed at Secondi's and then loaded at Pratt and Whitney in E.Hartford--Aircraft engines for McDonald Douglas in Long Beach CA

When I drove for the Navajo contractor we loaded out of Shick in Stratford and used to scale out load there. Had a big sign you couldn't miss running 95

Heres a link to a Star I shot in New Albany MS on 10-10-11

Again stopped at Secondi today, the parking lot was almost empty and there were very
few trucks at the fuel pumps and only two trucks at the truck wash. but this was early in the day
about 2 P.M.

On the other hand The Pilot was crazy busy. The parking lot was almost full and the fuel islands
had long lines waiting. There was a backup to the main road just to get in
