The California Truckers Association is warning that 70,000 independent truck owner-operators will be taken off the roads of California later this week as a draconian new law, β€œAB-5” kicks in: (emphasis ours)
In addition to the direct impact on California’s 70,000 owner-operators who have seven days to cease long-standing independent businesses, the impact of taking tens of thousands of truck drivers off the road will have devastating repercussions on an already fragile supply chain, increasing costs and worsening runaway inflation

Just got out of LA... there was no shortage of truckers on the 10 today that's for sure.

Plenty of diesel at the truck stop... DEF available as well. $6.30 for #2 and $4 for DEF

Drove in following trucks and drove out following trucks.

I'll keep anyone interested in SoCal happenings in the loop over the few weeks.

Honestly, I feel like I live in an alternate reality and I just don't see a lot of these shortages.

Fuel is expensive of course, and inflation is glaringly obvious, but life carries on.

Take care out there Bro's

Ok, a quick update from the far right of the far left coast.

I've been all over Southern California the last week, and into Vegas and down into Arizona.

Fuel prices have come off. Yesterday I paid $5.89 for #2 and $3.59 for DEF at a truck stop in California along the 10.

Vegas was $6.23 for #2 a week ago and Az was $5.73 around the same time.

I have my usual spots due to price and accessibility, and I have a large tank.

Diesel in Orange County was $6.83 yesterday at one of the few stations that I saw pricing for.

Still plenty of trucks on the road so no noticeable truckpocolypse.

The biggest thing I noticed was the lack of RV's and boat trailers on the road for the weekend.

Friday is usually packed with people leaving their utopia to invade Havasu and the river, and I saw almost NONE yesterday.

People are feeling the costs of going to "play".

Also, tourism is way down. Hardly any RV-America's, Harley rental tour packs, or Euro travelers anywhere. Usually these are everywhere but I'm noticing a definite lack of them this year.

Lastly, one thing that stuck out to me was the huge cloud of dust from the quarries and ready-mix plants when I drove into Vegas. Somebody needs to tell them we're on the brink of economic collapse because they just won't stop building. Maybe when Lake Mead finally goes bone dry?

Vegas was just booming, which is odd because I thought they got crushed with all the lockdowns... but apparently they got money from somewhere lol. There used to be a poaster here at GU that was from Vegas and telling everyone to flee because of how bad it was gonna get... I think he got banned for something.

My take on Vegas is that they will get crushed when the real estate market tanks. I saw the same thing in 2008.

Until next week... or so.

I think it was for doxxing himself via meatspace leafleting or flyer-posting.

A lot of people coming in to Vegas from NY, California, Illinois.

International travel has been allowed again this summer for Vegas, and so, Vegas is doing ok.

It's interesting, not all the casinos are doing well, but the main ones in the center of the action on the Strip are doing well. The hotel occupancy is back to what it used to be, but there is action again for the city.

There has been an increase in homelesness and crime in Vegas, but the city is def hagning on.

My feel with Vegas is that it is being allowed to make a bunch of money right up until Lake Mead goes dry and/or when the collapse happens. Then it will be sig downsized, but until then, they will milk the cash cow.

Vegas is packed full of retirees, and people who are fleeing California. Las Vegas is the first stop on the California Trail of Tears, and retirees love the place. Vegas will do great right up until the moment they run out of water, which probably isn't too far off.

George Gammon's mom is a real estate agent in Las Vegas. She has some interesting things to say. This is from 18 months ago but I don't think much has changed.

Yikes that's some real doomsday stuff right there. Can you imagine living in a town with 11% unemployment and yet sitting on the most massive housing bubble outside Cali?

I drive NorCal, Utah, Oregon and NV.
The high fuel prices hasn't slowed the traffic at all in these parts, maybe the RV crowd a little.
Prices have come down a hair but still extremely painful.
With lease operators being shut down the ports will be a nightmare of cargo containers going nowhere, the bigger companies won't be able to keep up.
I am seeing a tension on the roadways beyond the normal, people are getting way more aggressive behind the wheel.

Southern California as well. I'm seeing TONS of housing going up everywhere -while we are under strict water mandates, can only water our yards once a week. Water police go by in vans in the mornings to check if the sidewalks are wet.

We are under mandate by Sacramento to build tens of thousands of apartments in my town (most going in along the edges).

Where the hell is the water going to come from for all the new housing and construction?

This is being done on purpose.

Kevin MacDonald has said that water will be used as a weapon in the SouthWest, I don't believe he is wrong.

Just a personal observation: pretty much 100% of any "news" regarding American truckers and trucking that I've read in the last ten years has been comically overblown bullshit.

Nah, I just have a diesel pickup. I'm all over for business and lots of friends and family around the area.

But I would get my CDL in a heartbeat if I were younger. I think it would be a great way to save some money while seeing the country.

I would buy a 5 to 40 acre piece of land in an area I liked and build my fortress there... perfect to roll the rig in and out of, cheap cheap cheap and always available with owner carry terms.

yeah. I run around all day except in a promaster city.

a place contracts me as a courier. I am in their lease to own program for the pmc. put on 30k miles since mid Feb.

looking into other contractor gigs with a larger cargo van, transit 150 / promasters 1500 and up, w/o getting into diesel, but also otr in the cargo vans.

semi seems too much in my old age.

To destroy. It is simply to destroy. The goal is to demoralize the people, make them desperate for something, anything other than what they are/will be experiencing. Odd how they are doing it though. You'd think they would have found a way that wouldn't directly put them as the cause of all the upcoming mayhem that wouldn't cost a lot of money, and they way they are going about it is costly. You'd have to have more than police and National Guard to control it. And they ain't gonna spend the cash. One: they are too greedy and haughty. Two: They ain't got the money in the first place. There isn't anyone going to defend against a rioting horde for free or for worthless pennies. Ah well, gonna really suck to be them when they get Sri Lanka'd. Cali is headed down that road. They no longer have the man power or money or the heart to stop any such rebellion. And those gated communities are only safe as long as there are sufficient police to ensure they are safe. The biggest wake up call for those carelessly destroying the place is the folks they have brought in (all them primitive Central American types) will go berserk soon after the EBT stops. Once those Mayans and Aztecs are starving and have no funds to pay the cartels to return them to the jungle, hell will unleash. They will demand blood sacrifice. Hope those holding public office enjoy being 'parted out' and turned into taco's. loooooool. Couldn't happen to more deserving folks. Ha ha πŸ˜…
