    I'm sitting here in Memphis waiting to get loaded. I left Wytheville at 5:30 this morning, drove right to Knoxville for fuel, then drove nonstop to LaVergne. I got there an hour early, was empty at 1:30 then was sent my reload. 225 mile deadhead to Memphis to live load at 3pm. Wasn't going to happen. I got here at 4:30, got checked in and am waiting my turn to get a door. I mean there's only about 300 doors here, how hard can it be to find one for me? Oh, the kicker? The load is scheduled to drop in south hill va at 7am. I drove a total of 610 miles, made a live unload, now a live load, and my clock has 55 minutes left on it. It's 785 miles to my drop, I'm trying to figure out how it can be done. Any ideas?

    Good answers. Not even backed in yet. I'm going to worry about this in the morning.

    I always follow the people who read what I have to say, you all are regular contributors, but there's one person that's here that has a name from a movie from the 80's, Frank Acavano is that really you? From Newark?

    I hope you make it home for your wife's surgery and I it goes well. I hate when things go crazy in a situation like this.

    Hey JohnBoy, you really tell it like it is. That's one thing that I can say that I truly admire about you. I have been following this post since I got back on here. Keep up the good work and once I get some miles under my belt (documented lol), I'll try to give ol' Abilene a run.
