    Burger King. Took the shuttle over to the casino...planning on a nice buffet. Oops...Friday night, surf and turf...$32.00....naaaa.

    Don't mind spending that, but not when I can't have some wine....truck food for me tonight.

    I didn't know there was a shuttle for all that. SMH I gotta explore more. Leaving Wilmer here in 20 min. Deliver in negales, I really hate our drop yard there. It's ridiculously tight. Hoping they loosened it up a bit since my last time coming through...should hopefully make it to El paso by 5am and shut down. Idk how I let dispatch trick me into changing my schedule to nights this here is a rooster facepalm moment

    I think I saw notes for new nogales yard...haven't been there. Oh wait, I think it was a new calexico yard...either way...my travel agent is doing a good job of keeping me out of roosterville!

    Last time I was in negales yard I had like less than 6 inches on either side of my truck trying to navigate through there. All the guys bringing loads in from Mexico just drop wherever. They don't care. And it makes it a real challenge and dangerous area tbh.one ditch my trailer tire went though last time tipped my trailer close enough to what looked like a quarters length away from hitting another trailer...

    Hang in there man...a little time off will help. Don't sweat a bad week, sweat a bad month...two bad months and it's time to have a chat with your travel agent.

    Sorry it's been a few days... been at school and studying every night. We are doing a 2 week automatic course. Have completed straight line backing, reverse lane change, and parallel parking... also bobtailed for a little bit on the streets... this week we will learn ally dock... not gonna lie, pretty tired. We are doing 6 10 hour days... I've got most of my pre-trip down... not much longer :)
