    No, but have driven 200 miles only to realize delivery is the next day. lol Same only different.

    Thankfully another company that I’d done business with in the area let us drop at their yard and take one of their trailers, and delivered the load for us the next day. Got lucky!

    I took a load to Lancaster Pa. Ran 650 miles all night, only to find out I was a day early. Rate was very good. I thought it was a last minute deal. Never checked the dates on the confirmation. I guess I was mesmerized by the rate. Had my wife with me, got a room. Relaxed for a day.

    Painfully enough I’ve done that after getting fuel and getting back onto the highway in the middle of the day. At least you have an excuse for doing it first thing in the AM.

    :biggrin_25523: I got you beat on that one, i went from gary indiana to fontana california, before dispatch called me and asked why i was in california? The load is delivering in iowa....

    To be fair it was a paperwork mess up by the office people but good god that was a long trip...

    During training…well teaming training, I got on the KS turnpike going the wrong direction. Seemed like an eternity till an exit came up. He was not happy.
