    I'm home. Got here just before the start of the Giants game. I deliver 6am in Miami. I have a reefer trailer because I am reloading a load of lettuce on Wednesday going to our customer in Dayton NJ for Friday. This is the third winter that I have done this run. This loads 25 miles from the house which is nice because I don't have to leave until noon to load, plus I can drag my wife along so she can see how wonderful produce is.

    My load to RI had a scheduling problem so I dropped it at the terminal Friday. While there I got my truck serviced and had new steer tires put on because one was starting to cup pretty bad. That's all for now. I did get a chance to see Chris,Todd, Daniel and John all from the blog while there. It's nice to get to see friends in person for a change. Be safe all, God Bless!

    Well I'm empty. Left the house at 4am and was done at 9. On my way down to Miami I notice my truck riding like a tank and one helluva rattle coming through the floorboard. When it got light out I noticed what the problem was, my tractor air leveler valve went bad and was over-inflating my suspension. So I got empty and drove to the Volvo dealer near my house. It's being fixed as we speak, along with 2 recall items. It'll be done tomorrow. As for me I'm waiting on my wife to come and get me.
