    If I would've seen this yesterday I could've stopped and said hi. As it was we were supposed to get a big storm but that didn't happen and if you were looking toward Culver's my wife and I walked right by Roadys with our golden retriever about 6pm.

    Bummer. Maybe next time.

    I was hoping for a violent thunderstorm, and it started to look like that.
    Then it just fizzled out to nothing.
    Disappointing.
     
    dptrucker and Goldenfan Thank this.

    Seems a bit redundant, if you ask me.

    I was sent to Pepsico/Quaker in Cedar Rapids for an mt.
    Then the pick up at the Quaker half a mile down the street.
    Two different drop lots, but essentially the same facility.

    4 different addresses in Cedar Rapids, and I have been sent from one to another (by the customer) to either drop my mt or to pick up a load.
    It seems all interchangeable with those places.

    This has happened before, and I wonder why I am not simply sent in bobtail to pick it up.

    Buena Vista, MI at a J.

    Looks like my vacation from Owatonna is coming to and end, and it has been a nice week.
    My next load is going to Lakeville, MN, and from there I am sure to get a Costco load.

    Loads are scarce around here, and this one doesn't pick up until 1500 tomorrow. It is preloaded so hopefully it will be ready earlier than that.
    I'll get there at around 1300 to check on it.

    If I can get to the Love's in Holland, MI after my pick up in time to find parking I'll be able to get some laundry done, and get a shower.
    Earlier is always better up here.

    Then it's about 550 miles by Monday morning at 0800.

    I got to the Love's in Holland, MI... twice.
    When I weighed the General Mills load I was grossing 80,970, so I had to go back 30 miles to get some product taken off.

    The BOL said the load was 44,200, obviously a lie.
    After they took 2 boxes off, which weighed 850 each, the new BOL said the load was 44,500. That is closer to the truth.

    St. Charles, MN at the Love's.
    90 miles to go to my final. Not many options from here to there, so I'll be heading out at 0600 for my 0800 delivery.

    I ignored 2 pplans which were crazy on the times.
    The first had me delivering in MO at 1900 tomorrow night, and the second had me running overnight tomorrow for a 0500 delivery.

    That guy in Owatonna has a strange sense of time.
    I think he looks at his little computer screen, and if it tells him I can barely make it - he tries to get me to do it.
    Happens all the time with him.

    San Bernardino ca.
    camping on a side street 1/4 mile from final.
    have a 0600 appt tomorrow.
    i70 finally opened up on Saturday but they are sending us to lupton az due to fears of cdot closing 70 due to the rain they been having.
    wanted to save some time tomorrow in hopes I can make it to Lupton az tomorrow.
    live unload and pick up in jurupa leaves not much room.
    we will see.
     
    Moosetek13 Thanks this.
