The opening hours had changed here at Anthony's so I came to closed doors. I wasn't the only one. Another Knight truck called me up on the cb and told me they changed their hours so I just parked and went to sleep.
Around 4:30 I woke up to knocking on my door, half asleep i worked myself out of the bunk and handed over the bills to the gentleman outside. Got a door right there. Backed in and went back to sleep. Around 8:30 they were done and I could leave.
Now just gonna get some breakfast then head over to Mars in Joliet IL for a load over to Missouri.
Picked up a banana load from Port Manatee in Palmetto FL Thursday afternoon, then used the remaining hours and drove 75 up north across the Georgia stateline and took my night at the flying J on exit 2.
Started early next day, but my day was limited by the 70 hour limit so I had only 7 hours to drive. It was just enough to get me up to the Pilot at Mounteagle in Tennessee. I shut down there around 1500 and drove the rest of my trip the next day.
Before heading up to Anthony Marano in Chicago I stopped to meet my wife that came to meet me and to bring Pandora home. A couple of hours later I was on my way up to Chicago and now I'm here ending my trip.
I was a little behind on this load due to the Last shipper in Nogales, but I'm now back on schedule. Less than 600 miles left means I will deliver to Anthony Marano on time somewhere between 1800 and midnight tomorrow in Chicago.
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.
Was hoping and planning on getting home on Wednesday which seems like hard right now. After my delivery in Milwaukee on Saturday I got a Walmart load from Milwaukee with two deliveries, one in Pennsylvania and the next one in New York. Now at the Pattersonville travel plaza on I90 waiting for my delivery appointment at 0400 tomorrow morning. Crossing my fingers for a load back to Ohio so I can get home in time. This is my 4th week and that's enough for me.
Showed up at 1400 for my appointment at Walmart in New Albany. Checked in and got a door. This is the view from the truckers lounge they got here. It's actually just a small nasty bathroom. Pretty miserable!
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!!
