    Was at the yard today and waiting on Perdue. Ran into JB on his way out. Got to deliver in Dacula at 2015 and then MacClenney, FL at 0700. No room for errors here. Camping out in Blacksburg, SC now. Gonna head out about 1700 to make the first drop and have a few hours they can take to unload but I'll hit my 14 at my second drop. Hope there is something nearby cuz it is a Wallie World DC and we can't break there.

    Yes. Been here since my appt at 2015. They finished unloading but they have to break down pallets. They need to get a move on cuz I need to be down at Jacksonville by 0715, next appt. I hit my 14 at 0700. If they are not done within the next hour we may have a problem.

    Dropped my backhaul on the yard Sun night. Got a 2 stop pickup in Richmond to deliver to Manhattan School of Music in Upper Manhattan this morning. It was a cluster because they had a film set going on shooting a scene of "The Americans" on that street. Left out of there and got pulled over by NY's finest giving me a ticket for over length. I have a 48' so they didn't write it on the trailer but as a combination total length. Good fellow, said he was going to write it to Abilene because it is 3 points on the driver. Making small talk he said they are cracking down on that. I asked him jus Manhattan or the whole city. He said the whole city. I mentioned BH and he said that is downtown Brooklyn, so there too. Yayyyyy

    I saw the pup trailers on the yard that Don Tucker said would be used for NYC hauls so we would be in compliance. Enjoying orientation. Met Bill Walsh today and the guys at the guard shack. Really enjoy meeting my new teammates here. Everybody is so cool here. Curtis Jones is great too. Definitely feeling a family atmosphere here. Loving this company so far. Road test tomorrow and finishing up orientation. Then back to NC for the holiday weekend. Forgot to ask Sally, is orientation paid and how much? Thanks in advance. Thrilled to be here.
