Pine apples from Costa Rica to Columbus OH. The ship came in around 2200 and I checked in at 2330. Since all the pine apples has to be unloaded and inspected by US government its needless to say I was too early and my midnight appointment were going to be rescheduled. I went back to the truck parking lot on 33rd street which was a big unorganized mess, to sleep a few hours while I waited.
At 0400 they called me and I could come back and get loaded, sitting in line now waiting for a door at Del Monte.
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.
