    That sucks.
    I haven't been short on loads at all around here. Then again, my current load is getting me out to Ohio. Things can be a bit slim going west from there.
     
    dptrucker Thanks this.

    Decent miles, but a bit too much time on the load.
    And with a sucky 1900 live unload at a Dollar General DC.
    Those places can be very iffy.
    But I had no good reason to turn it down, so I am stuck with it.

    There is the Petro in Kingdom City, MO that I can reserve a spot at, so that is the plan.
    At least I should have a place to park that late at night.

    I really hate those late night deliveries, just like the wee hour ones.
    Everything gets thrown out of whack.

    Last night was the Love's in Sidney, OH, one of the nicest Love's out there.
    Too bad the washing machines were all out of service.

    Tonight it is the Love's in Knightstown, IN, and I was able to get my laundry done.

    I got here rather early in the afternoon, but can't leave until at least 1100.
    With that 1900 delivery tomorrow... probably lumpers that take forever to get things done.

    They finally finished my unload at around 2300 last night.
    I'm glad that Petro is there.

    No shortage of loads around here, just a shortage of loads I want.
    I turned down one delivering in Owatonna, MN by tonight because I didn't want to be stuck there with no place to park that late at night.
    Then I got stacked. The first was a trailer move to St. Joseph, MO, then picking up a t-called Sam's load at Edwardsville that was going to Council Bluffs and Lincoln, NE.

    On my way to drop the mt the planner called and asked if he could get me off the Sam's load so I could take one from the place I was dropping the mt at.
    I liked that one more, and it is a few more miles.
    Still going to be difficult to find parking at the destination, though. Geneva, IL, and there is nothing close by.
