    jurupa valley at home.
    last weekend trip we switched at loves in Salina ut for some reason.
    after making the switch I drove back tooves in cedar city for my 10. lucky to fiind a spot.
    he got a scale tix from the shipper( Denver says its certified). he said the computer was down so they gave him a written one.
    so I scaled it at cedar city and drives were over by 80lbs. was able to get it corrected.
    if I didn't scale it and decided to fuel in Primm NV I would have been over 500lbs.
    rest of this week went good.
    dealt was some strong winds down here all week.
    hope it goes smoothly tomorrow since I want to get back to watch super bowl
     
    jackoboyo Thanks this.

    I'm just hoping to get home sometime tomorrow.
    I am dealing with winds as well.
    Northern MN with 35-45 wind gusts after I delivered, so I am shut down until the morning.
    Those winds and blowing snow while mt are a bad mix.

    My next load is also a Costco load out of Owatonna, MN.
    It was first scheduled to deliver tomorrow at 0530, then they changed it to a 0330 delivery.
    So I am happy for the wind so I have a decent reason to get there late.

    Backing up the delivery time by 2 hours, when the load was already very tight on time?
    What are the morons thinking?
    Well, we have people coming in at 0300 but no deliveries until 0530. Let's just change that one to 0330.
    ?
    No!

    When I agree to a time with mac 9, that is the time I expect to deliver it.
    But when my drop and hook turns into a 3 hour live unload things change, and not to my disadvantage.
    And then when I can't get out because of high winds, well, I get it there when I can.

    I'll be home tomorrow because I got home today.
    But, no TV here and I don't care about the super bowl.

    Nice to be home, though.

    ended up switching loads in beaver UT.
    I made it back to petro in n Las Vegas for my 10. 1.5 hrs left on 11.
    put trailer in shop for 2 bad tires, a marker lite out , and abs lite kept coming off and on.
    dude needs to do a better pretrip. specially if he picks load up at the terminal.
    truck had a yellow engine lite on since weds.. had called shop on Thursday and he gave me a list of what it could be.
    so put truck in shop today and nthey said it ended a fuel filter.
    so left it there and came home.
    off tomorrow
     
    dwells40 and Moosetek13 Thank this.

    I'm in a little town in OK at a Love's taking a load to Fridley,MN with a Tuesday delivery.
    There is a note that this load HAS to deliver on-time, but...
    A winter storm moving in with the heaviest day being Tuesday.

    Has to does not happen sometimes.
