Had a terrible night of sleep, truck ran out of battery. I started to idle then went back to bed, but 5 minutes later the idle alarm goes off and I have to get back up from the bed to either disable it or shut off the truck. Did this probably 3-4 times thru the night. I should just have let it idle thru the night instead. Woke up around 0800 more tired than before I went to bed.
Drove about 7 hours straight to Erick OK to fill up fuel and get some quick lunch which consisted of a danish pastry with raspberry and some kind of cream and a bottle of lemonade. The rain and thunderstorms were with me all the way from Springfield and down to Amarillo wherer I got tired and just wanted to shut down. I pulled of on exit 74 to Loves and parked. Now just sitting here, dont feel any tired of course so I might as well watch some Netflix before I finaly hit the bed.
SHowed up at Americold in Belvidere IL at 17:00 for my appontment, was done loaded and ready roll for Gas City IN aroun 20:00. It was very cold and raining. The combination of subzero degrees and rain was no fun, but didnt have any bad time with it except from one of the side roads on my way out of the shipper.
Once out on the freeway the roads were good and salty, could run like normal, but the sleep caught me and I stopped at Loves to grab something to bite and a coffe. Almost all they way from Chicago the rain poured down, the temperature got warmer to around 45. I pulled off on exit 172 in Lafayette IN and drove the rest on US 26 and 35 to Gas City. I arrived at the Marathon in Gas City around 2:30am local time.
I slept for about 3 hours then I went over to Walmart and completed my trip.
Its been a pretty busy week apparently, I'm out of my 70 hours again and this time not even a single hour gained next day. I unloaded and spent the night on the streets outside Anthony Marano last night.
Drove down to Loves in South Holland next morning to finish the rest of my reset. I'm still here watching the Blacklist on Netflix and just waiting it out.
Tomorrow my reset will be completed and I'll be back on the road again. Hopefully westbound.
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.
My hometime this year for Christmas got longer than expected due to the extraction of three wisdom's teeth. It was absolutely my worst dentist appointment ever.
I was at home for a week longer than planned due to the enormous pain I had, but Tuesday January 3rd I had to go back for work. Lost enough money already.
Went and did my road ready service in Columbus then got a trip from Troy OH to Casa Grande AZ. Just perfect. Now on the 7th I feel my jaws aching less and hopefully soon the 800mg ibuprofens are no longer Necessary.
Just done with my delivery at Ryder in Rochelle IL. My appointment was at 0400 and I backed into a door then went to bed. At 0830 this morning they knocked on my door and told me they were ready to unload. Done at 11:00 which gives me 5 hour detention pay.
I was loaded up at Americold in Atlanta GA around 23:00 and rolled soon after I got my bills. Drove most of the night and took a 10 hour on a rest area in Illinois just across the Kentucky stateline. Picture is taken while driving next evening from the rest area. A beautiful sunset.
My next load will be over at Arzyta in Romeoville IL, going to Walmart in Washington Courthouse in Ohio.
The day ends here at Knight Transportation in Atlanta, GA after my delivery at Walmart In Brundidge AL.
Started this morning a little later than usual from Birmingham AL, drove 3 hours down to Brundidge for my 13:45 appointment at Walmart. This load was supposed to be picked up in Russellville AR on Saturday, but it wasn't ready before right after midnight.
My next load will be picked up tomorrow at 2100 from Americold here in Atlanta and will be going to Rochelle IL.
Been a while since I posted, I've been quite busy with late loads and short trips, and I was hoping to get west this time. I finally got a load to Temple TX which is west, but home time is soon here so I need to get back as soon as I got here.
Delivery was at Walmart in Temple, TX. Now I'm at the Shelby cold storage in Amarillo picking up a load going to Forth Smith, AR.
Pickup time was 7 according to the message, but they don't open before 8. Good thing I drove up here last night after my sleeper birth and not waited until after midnight as suggested.
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.
Finally at my destination and ready for delivery tomorrow morning then I'm heading home once I found a place to drop the trailer. Most likely 90 miles the opposite way to the Indy yard ugh...
Then I'm home for a week, lots of stuff to do unfortunately lol
