    Meh ... sort of like the Highlander movies, after the first one. And every Star Wars, movie after the originals, other than Rogue One

    Contrived, but entertaining.

    I just heard that the Menasha terminal is having a million mile event next month.
    It is a banquet for the million mile drivers at the Radison Hotel/Casino in Green Bay, WI.
    They allow one guest and will even spring for a room.
    Pretty cool!

    other drive text me saying his def heater broke and no loaners available.
    so tcalled the load at pheonix terminsl. then it went to crap.
    load i was picking up had scale tix showing 39400 on drives. went over the scale at terminal and it was 34120.
    so i figured they reworked it.
    went to love for a cstscale and showing same.
    i could only move 5th wheel one hoke forward.
    115 degrees on my truck temp gauge.
    no fun cranking the heavy trailer up and took awhile to get it back locked in.
    thanx to another driver who help me crank tge landing gear up.
    scale now shows 33900 and have 3/8 of fuel to get back to jv terminal.
    have banning scales to get thru.
    so off i went. planned to get to chariasco(sp?)
    summit.
    this is when it got fun. not.
    got aroumd mm70 and could see what i thought was a raincell to the north.
    but when i got closer it turned real dark. so thought it was a fast moving fire. not.
    ended up beimg a sandstorm that was gettimg b I gger as it went south
    looled like we could get past it but didnt.
    nowhere ti get off and not patking in shoulder . had a truck in fron of me and behing. turned our flashers on and slowed way down. think i got down to 30.
    one secomd it w as s clear visibility then next it was little.
    barely see 50 feet in front.
    lucky i was goimg slow cause it came to a quick stop. just b4 exit 69or 68.
    a car blocking left lane. had rearended a semi she says who left.
    another semi in rightlane rearended another semi and had clothing strung all over the keft lane.
    after making sure everyone was ok and they were callimg 911 the ones not involved were abke to squeeze by the car and s.emi to skomewhat get traffing moving

    Grand Island, NE tonight after delivering a couple Sam's Club loads.
    I reserved a spot here because it was around 2100 when I got here.

    There is one driver that should have done that.
    When I saw where the reserved spots were I went to the back row to see if there was a direct pull in I could use.
    (I would have gone around that way anyway so I would not have a blind side back with very little room)
    There was a truck backing in to a spot on the very back row that was having a bit of a problem. I could see the truck on his blind side rocking back and forth as he was trying to back in to that very tight space. I'm sure there was some damage done to the truck or trailer as he was trying to push it in.
    I got out to tell him that he was hitting the truck on his right side, just as he was getting out to look.

    There were a couple open spaces to my left where he was stuck so I was able to just pull in to my reserved spot. Easy Peasy.

    Getting to a TA that late at night I always reserve a spot.
    That 15 bucks would have been a lot cheaper for that driver in the long run.

    Yeah,,,, I could be here all day on my problems with 7,8,9

    But Rogue one nailed it. I don't know who was behind that one but they need to bring them back and do the writing. Cuz they pretty well had a very good strong drama as well as appropriate comic relief. Not to mention in the very short time of the film it was actually possible to get invested in the characters so that it actually meant something when the inevitable happened.

    Aurora, NE at the Love's.

    I started out Friday night at the TA near Grand Island.
    Got there at 2100 so I had reserved a spot.
    Didn't want to stay there another day so I went to the Pilot a few miles east of there. No pplans.
    My internet was so bad I came here today, Sunday. Still no pplans.
    At least I have a better signal here.

    And now it seems my Zonar is no longer receiving messages.
    I can send, but not receive.
    Mac 30 and 34 go unanswered.
    This has happened before, and it always seems to happen on a weekend.
    All the Zonar people can do is tell me to log out of Pointe, and then back in. Swift does not allow them to do any more than that with the Pointe app.
    The Swift people who can clear it up are not in until 0900 Monday - 1100 my time.

    But, Sunday night and still no pplan.
