    Here at the QT on 270 in E. St Louis. Tried to get stacked out of here yesterday and was told, due to freight, can not stack loads and thinking, WTF, just the other day when trying to get home from MT was stacked with 3 loads. Then get over here and find out QC was down so had to call in mt call, and my DM tells me, get you a load and keep you rolling. Then a pplan comes and dh 20 miles to the drop yard and pick a live unload, going 3 miles for 1400. Call in and ask what??? Get the TM on the phone and he says, what is going on, you are l/o. Told him, talk to my DM. Mac 30 is coming up with nothing but the bottom of the barrel. DH almost 50%, loads going to W. Memphis, Corninth, Ft. Wayne, all picking up tomorrow and delivery on Friday. Then I know that it will be a short one home or nothing home. W. Memphis would probably be a 600 mile one home, which for the end of the week, 1050 miles. Not even enough for a truck payment

    Got a pplan now to VA for Friday morning and was already told by the planners in that area that no problem getting a load right back to Columbus, probably for a Saturday drop. This will give me 1500 miles for the week. Then go home. Clean out the truck and it is back in their yard on Monday. Tuesday at the latest. Then a nice 4 weeks off before see the inside of a truck again. Out of the country and not have to worry about truck or payment. Ideally a little 400 mile load on Friday for Saturday and then a load home would be great, but do not see that happening, not with my luck

    Unloaded at John Deere in Ottumwa, Iowa. I'll probably have a hard time finding a way out of here.

    Well lets see. I could not get home to Columbus after getting mt on Friday in Des Moines, and it took me 8 hours the week before to get a pplan out of Cherokee, IA on a Monday. Had to dh for that one on Tuesday 200 miles and go to Corrine where I got to sit for 2 days, so girl, not really sure

    Big Springs, NE, even got a spot in the front row to park, but it is almost 3am.

    585 miles from final on Friday am del, and getting mty dropped, and heading straight to the post ofc to get my junk I bought on ebay while sitting doing nothing for a few days in VA.

    I actually had a revelation today, on how to make the right and best choices I can make for my life.

    "Take what choice feels right, and then do the opposite of that choice. Then that will be the right choice."

    Yep!

    Well first, and don't take this the wrong way but, if your going to take 64 and your heavy, it sucks to be you. I hated that lousy trip with a passion when I had to make it last weekend. I really missed my western mountains, they are slow easy gradual climbs, not the crap in western VA and eastern WVC.

    Plus, so are you saying your not making any plans to come to WVC, UT for your surprise going away party? OH Dude!

    Bummer :-(
