Was raining heavy last night in northern Florida on i95, decided it was time to call it a night, but I wasn't the only one thinking of that. All the rest areas were full, but without much choise to go any further I found a questionable spot there. Started this morning just before 8, but first I had to slide my tandems one hole back as I forgot to do the night before.
The shipper down in Belle Glade loaded me pretty heavy in the front, I was exactly 34,000 lbs on truck and trailer tandems with less than a quarter tank and me being lazy and gambling I picked a scale too far away to check my weight. I should know better lol
Anyway, I've been planning my route accordingly, making sure I dont pass any scales with more than quarter tank of fuel. Now I'm at this rest area in Virginia with less than 300 miles left so I'm feeling good about this. Will start tomorrow and with a little luck with the morning rush thru Washington and Baltimore I should be right on time for my drop appointment.
Picking up a load for Fresh Express here at TKM farms in Belle Glade FL now, worst customer service I've seen in a long time performed by the two girls in shipping and receiving. Got here on time, but still waiting. According to Google Map reviews of the location I may have a long wait ahead of me.
The weather down here in Florida is of course great, its even great when its raining . Hometime is also coming up soon and I've got more stuff on the deck to finish so the dogs can use it.
I'm now at the Flying J in Matthews MO. Loaded up on Kraft in Champaign IL yesterday to Walmart in New Albany MS. Appointment time is 15:00 and I'm 4 hours away. No need to rush cause they won't let me in before an hour ahead of appointment time. Not so cold this morning, about 48F. Also got my last week's pay which is very frustrating. No wonder the trucking industry in this country is in lack of drivers when you actually gets more by working for a fast food chain!!
Been sitting here at the TA in Bloomsbury since yesterday. Think I just passed 24 hours too. No load yesterday and nothing so far today! Hopefully something shows up soon cause this is boring and I'm not earning shit by sitting like this!
