    ####!!! 12???

    That’s just crazy how many are hitting this.
    Or maybe it’s normal and a quick easy fix under normal inventory but with the shortage it’s just getting out of control.

    When I dropped off the part FCC sent to me the Service Guy said they are having more and more people bringing in their own parts because of it. And the part I had was like $350 Dealership Retail but used to go for $550 on EBay but now he has seen them for $5,500.

    crazy stuff going on.

    So, where y’all at?
    Where y’all heading?

    I ran to Four Oaks and then they sent me to Sumter (boy BD is building up that plant with a big multi story project) at which point I was down to just a few hours left on my 70 so I dropped my MT in Sumter and BT home for a 34 then came out to run from Sumter to Indy. Grabbed a load of tomato products from Red Gold and headed to Lincoln. Instead of babysitting that load until Monday they let me drop it at the Lincoln Drop Yard and then grab a Kawasaki load and currently heading to Ellabell for delivery tomorrow afternoon.

    been a bit out of sync with my normal pattern because I came out midweek which is throwing off the timing of my 34s but after being shut down for so long with that def sensor issue, it’s better than sitting at home for sure.

    how is everyone else doing?

    Finding parking around Atlanta just sucks.

    Most of the time I get lucky and I’m able to just drive around and avoid any parking issues but occasionally, like last night, I’m faced with either shutting down way too dang early or rushing my clocks hoping to get around town and far enough to find parking.

    Clocks down to like minutes as I pull into the T/A at Cartersville… most of the free spots taken but I find one and shut down. This morning during pretrip I notice it was actually a reserve paid spot. So thinking probably should go pay for what I used. Not so much worried about TA (although many are becoming just Paid Parking Lots that also sell Fuel) but I’d feel bad taking another Drivers spot.

    Get inside and tell the lady behind the counter that I had parked in a reserve spot last night and wanted to settle up. She smiles/laughs and said don’t worry about it… lol … so I thanked her and went on my way. Ok, not going to argue. So I headed out to pickup my next load.

    But ya, Parking around Atlanta still sucks.


    Stay Safe
