Parked last night at TA Beto Junction, wouldn't have made it down here yesterday anyway. A crazy thunderstorm rolled in later that night and made it pretty cozy in my can trying to sleep zzzz
Woke up after a 10 and drove the rest of the way down to Tyson in Hutchinson and delivered.
Now I'm at the Loves truckstop chilling and waiting for my next assignment.
A little late because I decided in the last minute to do an inspection on my truck at the Fontana yard, but there were no problems or delays at the receiver because of it so I'm good.
It's crazy tight and busy in here, probably one of the worst places I've been to. Now just got into a door and they start unloading me immediately. My next load is preloaded and being picked up in Rialto once I'm done here, then of to Wal-Mart in Hermiston OR.
It's a pretty hot day here in California today, need both my windows rolled down while I'm waiting. Pretty good for the middle of November :)
The load is delivered and I'm now parked at the Petro here in Casa Grande. Been here since the am.
I also got a new load from Frito Lay here in Casa Grande to Salt Lake City, picking up tomorrow sometime before noon and will be delivered on the 28th. That's about 700 miles from here.
Woke up at 0500am this morning for my first delivery in Houston, but was told to wait in the truck and they should let me know when they wad ready. At 0900am I was given a door. Couple of hours later I was empty and on my way to my next stop on the other side of the city.
I was of course late now, but got a door as soon as I got there. A couple of hours later I was done and headed to my third and last stop. No way I could make that appointment either, but I got there about 1,5 hour late. They were nice and friendly and got me at door immediately. Did my empty call and headed for the Katy yard to pick up a tcall going to Wal-Mart.
This load unfortunately didn't have many miles, but a little later they called me and asked if I wanted to go pick up a load at Del Monte in Galveston yo Columbus OH. Much more miles, of course I wanted that.
Now I'm at the harbor in Galveston waiting to enter the gates at 1100pm. So I have a few hours to kill. I've never been this far south in Texas before and it's beautiful down here.
Started working on my old fuel game project again this Christmas, but had to change it from liters to gallons. Now it's kind of working, just need some drivers to start using it so we can find all the bugs lol
Started early this morning to get my 2 stop load to Macys in Cheshire CT, got lucky and was told to drop the trailer on my first stop. No empty reefers there so I went over to my second stop anyway to look and found the one in the picture. It was pretty messed up and dirty, but otherwise fine, no damages. Now sitting at the TA Southington playing the waiting game again!
Went to Walmart in Smyrna DE today, then bobtailed back to the Carlisle yard to pick up an preloaded trailer going to Macys in CE. Runned out of hours to get there in time so I pulled off to a rest area here on I84. Will start at 0500am in the morning. Good night!!
