    Dropped my load in Orlando at 1810. Bunked down at the weigh station on I4 east of Tampa. Its the closest walk to the bathroom my wife will ever have out here. I stayed here four years ago when my TransAm trailer was too long because I couldn't get the tandems to slide. TransAm was cited, but we got a quiet place to sleep because who sleeps at a weigh station? No place else on I4 after 8pm. Tomorrow, a beer load from Tampa to Farmville NC then home for the weekend.

    They are supposed to install a new wiring harness today, but with most of the interstates still closed out here I’m not sure it made it in town yet. I will be calling over to the dealer shortly to see if I need to book my hotel room for another night.
    I’m bored, but the bartenders know me by name and don’t even have to ask what I’m drinking when I walk in at 1700.

    What have you been drinking at 1700 hours?

    I’m a beer man. The hotel I’ve been staying at has a restaurant/bar that opens at 5 pm, I arrive shortly there after for dinner and a few adult beverages.

    As I suspected the part won’t arrive today, hopefully it will arrive tomorrow and be installed tomorrow. Just took an Uber back up to the truck to get a few more changes of clothes, when I came to the hotel Monday, I didn’t realize I would be here for a freaking week.

    Before I came to FCC I was the poster child for job hopping. On average I would stay somewhere for 9 to 10 months, and then find an excuse to move on. Today is my two year anniversary at FCC, my current situation aside I couldn’t be happier. FCC is hands down the best company I have had the pleasure of working for. I look forward to many more years to come.

    Hey Runningman, i know a little about you because of our mutual friend Johnboy. He speaks very highly of you. I enjoy reading your adventures at Fcc. I work down the road in Omaha. Maybe one day our paths will cross. Safe travels.
     
    runningman0661 Thanks this.
