    I've never done a 10 on a ramp.
    That is a line I will not cross.

    Is that a fishing trip?
    Let us know if you snag something big.

    My only real boat trip was a Tiger cruise from Hawaii to San Diego, and it was about the same duration.
    The USS Constellation, CV-64, was my ship.
    I didn't snag any fish, but some very neat photos and memories.

    I was shocked when the pplan came in.

    My delivery was in Mankato, MN, 40 miles from Owatonna.
    But the pplan has me picking up in Combined Locks, WI for a paper load going to Elwood, IL.

    A double shock because that Costco DC sends scrap paper to that same place.

    I’m pretty sure that warehouse burned down a couple days ago.

    I'm starting to wonder. Maybe I'll call and ask.

    I delivered a load to Eagan, MN today.
    The next load I got was not a Costco load that would have been 70 miles empty, it is a load picking up in Neenah, WI which is 280 miles empty.

    Indiana along eastbound I-70.

    The highway became a parking lot so I pulled off to a Mr. Fuel.
    A truck has caught fire a few miles up and all lanes will be blocked for several more hours.

    Good thing I have plenty of time on this load. I'm headed to the Columbus terminal to t-call it and it isn't due until tomorrow.

    Home again, home again...
    And it's nice to be home for a few days.

    The amplifier in my car shorted out shortly after I bought the car. Heavy rain and wind flooded the inside with a few inches of water, and the amp was under the passenger seat. ZzzzzT!!! There it went.
    The radio volume control hasn't worked since I got the car.

    I was going to try and bypass the amp to get the speakers back and then replace the radio with something else on this home time.
    No luck finding a wiring diagram for the connector to the amp so I had no idea how to reconnect the wiring.

    I did a quick search on the amp again and got lucky.
    On E-Bay there was a used amplifier and radio from a '99 Sebring (mine is a '97, but the parts should be compatible).
    The person said they were working and it is from a one owner car, they just wanted to replace the system with something better.
    $108 for both, including shipping.

    I'll look forward to installing those on my next home time.

    Hope they work.
    Keeping original equipment in a car this old is much better than the alternative.

    jurupa valley at home.
    1st trip went ok
    after tcalling that load to jv terminal, i went to rialto to p/u next load.
    zonar gps sent me the wrong way
    took me abit to get to the target dc. after picking load up i went back to terminal and went home
    left jv around 7am and got to las vegas where electronic signs says 15 n is closed at mm112. just south of misquite nv.
    so i took the oversize detour. us93n to sr 319 which turned into sr 56 in utah.
    came out at cedar city..
    after switching loads, i drove back to st george and spent the nite at walmart
    after tlcalling load at jv terminal i went to pomona ca to get the next load.
    came back to terminal and came home again
    will leave around 7 in the morning for the last trip of the week.

    Since you posted that at nearly 2200, I really hope you got home a bit earlier to enjoy a few hours of relaxation after all that.

    My feelings about the Zonar GPS are about the same as with the Qualcom... garbage.

    And as usual, your schedule leaves my head spinning.
