    Dropped walmart load in bentonville,AR. Picked up Clorox load weighing 43900 going to Texas. I guessed on where the tandems should be and when I scaled I was good on my weights. What was funny is tandems scaled 31xxx and drives 33960 lol talk about luck. Stuck in springsdale AR now. 380 mile trip!? What a waste of my time but at least I'll be close to home so I can get my home time.

    I hate Dallas.

    Dropped a load a couple hours ago, no mt in sight so I bobtailed to a Pilot.
    Turned down a load that had 22 hours for a live load and over 500 miles into LA.
    All I want is an extra 2 hours, but I guess the appointment is set in stone.

    Actually, it seems to vary as to when you buy it.
    Winterized fuel has a different weight.

    But if you figure on 7.5 - 8, you should be good any time of year.

    Sitting at security at gen mills waiting for the huge stack of papersto print for me to sign, I usually have to sign around 30 pages. When I git here a cre truck was backing into a dock, swept my trailer after checking in then dropped in a spot a nd poor cre was still struggling, went around and got my loaded and came back around to see he was just now unhooking, don't know if I should feel sorry or..... it's a wide open dock and easy since I docked there the other day.

    I know the walmart dc I worked out of in OR had nice restrooms and showers for their employees, was a shame I was not allowed to use those either.

    Looks like i was fortunate getting decent miles today since there were not many loads and tomorrow there is a small handful of loads which are already cut and sitting waiting to be delivered because the dc is doing some type of inventory and have the warehouse shut down until tomorrow night, I got one of the loads given by the boss who decided to work tonight and give the planner off since it was his birthday, heading to Palmdale and then might have a yussen from Long Beach, if I dont get the yussen then its just a $100 day but I will work less than 5 hours total, I kinda want the yussen but being a Sunday I wont cry not getting one, that 405 is horrible on Sundays.

    may Champaine IL. Last leg of this JIT load to Elk Grove Village. Funny thing is I still have no Del time because I never heard back from my Droid. I called#customer but got no answer so I'm thinking I may be sitting today and delivery Monday

    Frank,

    I stand corrected. I Googled it (as I'm guessing you did) and you're correct. Not sure where I got 7.35 lbs per gallon but I've used it for years.
