    I did manage to get out at around 1400. The highways were not too bad, but the city streets and ramps were still slick.
    My load to TX was taken off me because of the delay. After I told my DM I would be heading out to pick up that mt he found me a load to AR that picks up in the morning.

    I'm chilling tonight as well.
    At 2100 it is 0 degrees, and counting down to a little more.
    Needless to say, this is an idling night to keep me and the truck warm.
     
    dptrucker and FerrissWheel Thank this.

    I need a bit of luck too, both for laundry and a shower.

    A pplan was sent today with a note from the planner.
    Wanted me to run Walmart loads for several days to several weeks. It came from the refer side.
    Sorry, nope. I don't do Walmart stuff anymore, just like I won't do Target or any other dedicated crap.

    I know my abilities and limitations, and I stick within that window to keep myself safe and reliable.
    Those places want to run me at hours that I do not do well with, so I avoid them at all cost.

    Was gonna grab a lumber load to Del Rio TX out of denver, but only avalible skateboard had a severe air leak and lights out. Red tagged it, took them too long. Grabbed a load of cardboard to SLC. Might be stuck on it till monday. We will see.

    Lots of snow in wyoming earlier. Managed to make it through before it got terrible. Got here at like 1am local.

    Junction, TX @ the Pilot. Headed for Houston for a Sunday drop.

    Earlier today someone from Phoenix stacked me with a T-called load sitting in Houston to a forwarder in Laredo then a load sitting in Laredo headed to Reno with a T-call in Phoenix.

    Here's hoping my "stacked load curse" takes a few days off! :)

    One of the things I started running into ... When Knight took over they gave the DMs the power to plan you anywhere in the country.

    Whenever my DM stacked me, outside my terminals planning area, the planners in that region would yank the loads ... stack fell apart everytime.
