    We reloaded in marion nc an dropped it. Grabbed a coke load. Sitting in dock in denver. Waiting on bills. Then find out what's next. I managed to get a reset in but momma has only 5 hrs left. I'll probably run the day out an then do a 10 an go again so she'll get her hours back in morning. Don't see much point in having her run 5 hrs an then have to sit 5 till i can run again.

    That makes sense. Gotta have max hours running for these folks if possible. I drove all the way to Coke in St. Cloud late Saturday. I went like 1½ min over my driver time. Oops. I notated it, but I didn't see another way to get a 34 hour reset in. It's snowing big time up here. I'll know where my fate lies once I deliver at 10 am.

    At torrington. Got 5 trucks in front of me. Waiting for trailer to dry out as it needed to be washed out. Gonna do my ten here. That way i can take the mrs up to the restaurant in town for a good hot meal. We both picked up a head cold over the weekend an generally feeling like crud. Figure a hot meal is just what the doc ordered. Only got 2 hrs left on my day, so by the time i get loaded an up to the fuel stop I'll be done anyways.

    Hey man, y'all feeling better?

    I battled that snow down but it wasn't that bad. Far from the worst Minnesota and Wisconsin have to offer. I got to South Beloit to fuel and spend the night but they had non stop snow in forecast for days so I changed my plans and decided to go all the way to Springfield as I had enough time to make it. I got to the Road Ranger here about 5 am this morning. The Coke warehouse I'm delivering to is right across the street. I was scheduled for 7 am tomorrow but since I had nothing to lose, I decided to try my luck and see if they'd take it early. Lady Luck was on my side and they are taking it today. Afterwards, I'm picking up Hershey for Toppers. Now that's a victory!

    Slowly getting over this crud. Actually overslept 3 hrs this morning. Didn't hear the alarm at all. Had that hot meal last night an totally fell out. Ya ever get the chance to try that place in torrington there at the travel center on 26, i recommend it. Good eats. We're gonna drop at craftsman an then grab a Longmont outta hershey's for tomorrow night.

    10-4 you’ll be smelling my diesel. I’m camped out in Salina for the night. Reloaded at JBS in Greeley. Headed back to Alabama for two drops. Going home for thanksgiving next week. Spending it down in Florida. My sister just bought her first home down there and she wants to host thanksgiving.

    We unloaded at Longmont last night. Had a reload appt at lineage in Henderson this morning. Took 6.5 hrs past our appt to get loaded an outta there. It's been lightly snowing an cold today out here. Now our defrosters quit working today. The vent door won't change or open up for defrost inside the dash. The new winter blades i put on are only working good on the driver's side. I bent the passenger one a little to have it better hug the windshield at the end. In doing so it's not letting it contact fully in the middle. I'll have to fix it later or just buy another one. Think I'll get a shorter one for the right side an maybe it will have full contact top to bottom. With the 22 it rests off the windshield at the top. Going to AOD Columbia. Thought that was odd to load at an offsite warehouse, rather than at platteville. Hope ya all are safe an well.

    Ahh man, that place does suck! Tough break on the defrost amd wipers. It'll give them boys in the shop something to do. Lol. I had dropped off at the PFG next door I believe it was. You gotta get cozy when loading at Lineage. I went to AOD in Columbia too but it seemed like I had a dry load out of there. I had to off load at the back of the warehouse that time.

    I unloaded in Pueblo this morning and reloaded taters in Monte Vista. The load is going to Pageland, but whether I'm going with it is to be determined. I tried to beat the snow out of there but by the time I got to Eads it was sticking pretty good. It's kind of cool to look in my mirror and see all that dust kicking up. I made it Wakeeny for the night. Production at its finest.
