Parked last night at TA Beto Junction, wouldn't have made it down here yesterday anyway. A crazy thunderstorm rolled in later that night and made it pretty cozy in my can trying to sleep zzzz
Woke up after a 10 and drove the rest of the way down to Tyson in Hutchinson and delivered.
Now I'm at the Loves truckstop chilling and waiting for my next assignment.
A slow start on my week at work. Spent pretty much the whole first day in the shop for a B service, but also got the front heater and my cracked windshield fixed.
First load was delivered late at Armada in Greecastle PA so spent my whole day at the receiver next day waiting for a door.
Now on my third day in Mechanicsburg PA waiting to get loaded here at QPSI. This was supposed to be picked up yesterday, but I arrived this morning at 07:00 like planned so it's good. Going to Johnson & Johnson in Mooresville IN.
Then I'm here on the Memphis yard of Knight Transportation, ready to pick up a tcalled load going to Henderson NV. Don't know the trailer number right now, but no worries cause I'll be staying here tonight anyway.
Now doing some laundry, then I'll be heading for bed.
Home time is getting closer, just a couple more days or two trips more and I'm home. Just delivered the Hershey load tonight and now outside Walmart doing my sleeper birth.
Picking up a preloaded trailer tomorrow from Fresh express going to Food Lion in Greencastle. It's just 62 miles, but they are paying me $200 for it which is pretty good.
Then back to Hershey to pick up a load to Mississippi, but it will be dropped at the Columbus yard. Then home!
My deliveries around in LA made me a bit late, but I managed to pick up this load to Winco Foods just an hour late. Now I'm here in Boise ID and the load is delivered on time.
It got late fast last night. After working myself through two accidents in North Carolina things got better, at least a few hours. Drove I77 north through Charleston and up to I70.
Had a 5 minute break at the last rest area before Columbus, then I continued towards Springfield when I ran into the third accidents (picture) on this trip. This one was really bad. Got stuck on the freeway for three hours without moving an inch. I fel asleep for an hour or so during that time.
It started moving again around 5am and I arrived at the shipper around 6. Slept two more hours on the shoulder, then woke up little before 8 and did my delivery.
Now I'm waiting to finish my ten hour break so I can pick up my next load to Dunkin Donuts NJ.
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.
Started early today from Flying J and drove down to my first stop in Enfield NC and delivered at 13:30. Thats about 24 hour early. Then I drove a few hours more and parked at Flying J in Latta SC. My last stop will be at US Cold Storage in Lake City tomorrow. Appointment time is unfortunately on the 12th, but hopefully they will let me deliver early.
