Made it to Flying J in Mandan ND. Mandan was founded in 1879 and is the eight largest city in North Dakota with a population of 18300.
The city was named after the historic Mandan indians in the area.
By making it here tonight means I'm on schedule for on time delivery at Walmart on wednesday. Even though I should have had my hometime started on Tuesday because of my dentist appointment on Wednesday.
We'll see how it goes, having it tcalled would be perfect.
Was a short day today, my 70 hour limit is on my back again. Drove about 5-6 hours from Petro Spokane to Town Pump/Flying J here in Butte.
About halfway, just after Wallace ID it started to snow and cover up the roads in the mountain area, but got soon better once I was down on the other side.
Tomorrow will be better, I'm gaining a full 11 hour and hopefully I'll make it to Flying J in Mandan ND.
Went bed early last night, was super tired lol. Woke up early this morning because of the stupid sonar device starting to beep and talk. Noticed it was stuck on drive mode all night.
Now even after my sleeper birth I'm out of hours because of it. Called the dispatch too have them fix it, after 45 minutes on hold I got thru and told them about it and now almost two hours later I'm still sitting with no hours and no logs fixed from those incompetent idiots. Also sent them a message about it.
I guess I gotta call back in and wait on hold for another xx minutes.
Long day today, started early to drive 3,5 hours up to Bluebird in Peshastin WA to load a few pallets of pears, then back down Kershaw Fruit in Yakima WA to load apples.
Now I'm a couple hundred miles east at Petro on i-90. Pretty tired. Just had a boring subway meal.
The next few days will only be driving to get the fruit to Wal-Mart in Gas City IN, then home.
Done with my load from Fontana to Wal-Mart in Hermiston OR. Started 0400am this morning to finish the last few hundred miles I had left.
Now I'm at the Spaceage truckstop doing my sleeper birth, then I'm off tomorrow morning to pick up a load at Bluebird in Peshastin WA to be delivered in Gas City IN.
Just 10 miles away from my previous load I'll be picking up my next load going to Wal-Mart in Hermiston, OR.
This is a nice and friendly place with a scale to weigh your axles before your leave. And it's free!
Good thing they had cause my trailer was too heavy in the front, even with the tandem slid all the way forward I was unable to get legal. Picture is taken with the tandem in hole #9 before adjustment.
99% of the time the holes between 8-12 is the ones to use with reefer trailers here at Knight.
A little late because I decided in the last minute to do an inspection on my truck at the Fontana yard, but there were no problems or delays at the receiver because of it so I'm good.
It's crazy tight and busy in here, probably one of the worst places I've been to. Now just got into a door and they start unloading me immediately. My next load is preloaded and being picked up in Rialto once I'm done here, then of to Wal-Mart in Hermiston OR.
It's a pretty hot day here in California today, need both my windows rolled down while I'm waiting. Pretty good for the middle of November :)
On my way back west now to Fontana California with a load I picked up in Amarillo from another driver. We just switched trailers, he didn't wanna go west and I didn't wanna go east just yet.
Now having my break at my watering hole here at the Flying J in Kingman AZ. I've got about 5 more hours to drive today. No stress, it's still early.
Stopped here for some reefer fuel and then my 14 hour clock was out. Parked across the street at Speedco cause Loves was full.
Then I'm here, first pickup of a total of three going to be delivered in Philadelphia on Tuesday, but not my me. It will be relayed so I can go back west for a week more.
Next stop will be back in Nogales, then the last in Maricopa. About 130 miles the opposite way.
