Well then I'm back home again after a pretty short and miserable day at work. I woke up together with my wife this morning and was getting everything ready for another 3 weeks on the road. It all started well, managed to find a pretty new empty trailer at the yard in Columbus too. Went to the Cloverfield Cold Storage and got loaded for Dunkin Donuts in NJ. Halfway through the load I got a phone call that I had to bring my loaded trailer back to the yard, another driver needed it cause he was going home. I went back to the yard and dropped my trailer and started waiting for a new load. After a couple of hours I got a new load with same shipper and same receiver, but appointment next day.
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.
Finally ready to pick up my load to Wisconsin for delivery on Saturday. Waited at the pilot for 24 hours. Hopefully they will load me fast so I can get out of here.
Then I'm here at Americold in Ontario OR. Checked in at 1700 and waiting in the door now for them to start unloading me. The trip started in Hawthorne this morning and the weather was great, but it got slightly colder on my way up here. I have not received any preplans yet so once I'm done here I will park at the Pilot down the street until tomorrow. Crossing my fingers for a south or southwest load again. This cold makes me depressed lol
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.
Now at Target in Rialto CA with Ice Cream from Henderson NV. Once I'm done here I'll be heading down to San Diego for a load to Americold in Ontario OR.
Ran out on my 70 hour today, still managed to do my two deliveries for Albertsons here in Las Vegas. Had to look through the whole week for unnecessary on-duty time to convert to off-duty. I still have all the pre-trip's and some other on-duty so I guess its all good. Now I'm just a few blocks from the Las Vegas strip on a truckstop called Wild Wild West with free parking up to 48 hours which is great. It's also alot of restaurants and motels around here in walking distance.
I'm now in Texas just about 140 miles from Forth Worth where I will deliver the fruit tomorrow at noon. Then I'm heading over to Sara Lee in Haltom City for delivery in Tolleson AZ Monday morning.
