    I had that book w/ me. When I thought about it I would have had to have dug it out of wherever it was and thought better of it. Ya never know when someone w/ a gun might think someone else was looking for a gun. Ya never know.

    Maybe I should photocopy that passage and hand it to whomever along w/ my license and registration, next time.

    He still may have spent the time verifying.

    It is even more stimulating when they stop you with a load of unnetted bees on the back. At least stimulating for the patrolman.....

    ok, where do i get the small green federal DOT book and what page do I need to mark? Sqkcrk, I thought you didn't have a CDL, why did you need a fire extinguisher and triangle? Because of your DOT numbers?

    scokat,
    I drive a Commercial Vehicle, as defined by NYS, w/ Agricultural Plates. I believe that requires the extinghuisher and triangles.

    You can get the little green DOT book at most any truck stop... surely at a big one.

    Mark: How does banding those hives together when they are on 4-way pallets with W-clips work for you?
    I use U-clips and have been thinking about switching to W-clips on my pallets but have concern about banding them together when they have the space between the boxes, did not want the boxes to slide sideways and open up the boxes!?
    Thanks!

    A. I don't band my boxes together on my pallets.
    B. I haven't noticed it to be a problem for friends who do. The boxes aren't rerally that far apart anyway.

    Mark- Those are some good looking clusters for January. I hope mine look that good in early March!

    What grade of plywood are those covers? Do they all stay flat?

    It was nice meeting you at ABF.

    Marine grade non-treated plywood will stay flat. It is used to build boats. NOT available at the box stores like Home Depot. Most of the folks at the box stores (and some lumber yards) will have no idea what you are talking about. Relatively expensive. If you shop around you can usually buy it from the same places the box stores do at their price.

    You can also find it used/servicable for much less than new.

    OK Mark - I recognize those boxes - I've told you before not to be in my yards when I'm not there!!!! That hive better bee there when I go down next month other wise I'll know who took it!! I think you need a release to post pictures from my yards! (See you Apri :-} ?

    I try really hard not get pulled over but the few times I've been stopped with a trailer load of bees it's always 45 minutes. I always like the opportunity to add 45 minutes onto a 14-16 hour trip with a trailer load of bees. Of course there's always a few bandits that are out under the net if you sit longer than 5 minutes and those PA troopers are so tough they don't even care! Was it PA - That's where I've been stopped every time. Guess I better dig my triangles and extinguishers out of the shop and get them back in the trucks.

    I read a post about un-netted bees - isn't that an automatic ticket?
