I'm now at a rest area south of Colorado Springs on I-25 just done a 10 hour break. Loaded up yesterday at Millards Cold Storage in Greeley going to Nogales, AZ.
My previous load, the ice cream from Henderson to Safeway was delivered on time. They unloaded pretty fast, but had to wait three hours for my bills and pay a $171 lumper fee. Next time I'm not gonna move the truck an inch from the dock before I get my bills.
Finally in Las Vegas and I'm doing a reset, but don't seem to be any office people here today which means there won't be a van to borrow. I've been driving night for the last two days and I was supposed to drop this trailer last night, but they didn't accept any drops before Sunday.
Drove up to TA at Blue Diamond to park, but it was already packed. Not really a surprise when it's 0100am Saturday morning. Even the paid parking was all taken or booked. Continued further up to North Las Vegas and parked at the yard. At least I got parked and Sam's club and In n'Out burgers are next door.
I love driving in the western states, but yesterday I got a load back to Harissburg PA which got canceled cause I was out of 70. Today I'm just chilling at the yard in Denver.
Went for some shopping at Walmart with some other drivers and lunch at Dairy Queen. Now I'm just done with a shower and waiting for my laundry to be done.
My next load is tomorrow at Greeley CO to Phoenix AZ so I'm happy. Seems like I get to stay out west a little longer.
After Walmart I went down here to the TA in Fultonville NY to sleep, I was so tired and exhausted. Can't remember when I felt so bad before lol. Anyway after a few hours sleep, a shower, some food from McDonalds and some pain pills I felt better. Suddenly this truck backed in next to me, shortly after came a police officer and done some kind of DOT check on him. Checking the lights, horn, brakes, wheels and everything.
Then I'm in Hawthorne NV. Will stay here at the Golden Gate Plaza until tomorrow. Just a small town with a couple of gas stations. Have about 450 miles left. Appointment tomorrow afternoon at 18:00 in Ontario.
Just parked at Pilot on I10 exit 343 in Florida. My last stop on this load is just a few miles away. Had my appointment rescheduled, but not before tomorrow anyway. At least it'll be in the morning and not afternoon. Also got a preplan that will take me back to Budweiser in Jacksonville and back up north on 95 to North Carolina.
