Did not get enough miles last week, noticed that on my paycheck today. I was pretty much sitting the whole weekend and Monday. The load that was supposed to be picked up at 10am Sunday from JBS in Phoenix. It was 28 hours late and ready Monday at 15:00.
The load has four deliveries. Two in San Antonio and two in Houston.
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.
I reached Houston today. Was 2 hours short on my hours last night. Appointment at 2100 so no need to rush cause they wouldn't let me in earlier than 2030 anyway. I checked in around that time and was done at 2am. Went a couple of blocks to Budweiser and picked up a preloaded trailer to Wichita Falls. Just parked now on a small shady truckstop across the street from the brewery called Texas truckstop.
Loaded up a new load from Gaffney SC to Houston TX. On the picture some afternoon traffic jam in Atlanta GA. Now just done with my breakfast at Flying J in Hope Hull AL. I've got about 600 miles left and delivery is tomorrow the 13th at 2100.
