    I'm headed to Boise, ID with a Clorox load out of Lathrop.
    There is too much time on the load, mainly because of a 2100 live unload I think, but at least I am out of CA.

    We stopped at the Love's in Fernley, NV this afternoon and won't be leaving until around 1230 tomorrow.

    Send a Mac13 to David Washburn WASHD and tell him what you're looking for. He's on tonight and one of the very, very few Decatur planners who understands his primary job responsibility is driver support. He'll have you hooked up quick. BTW, the only good thing about that Petro is the food in the fuel island.

    Just dropped off a student yesterday, only the 2nd one this year that really had a concern for doing things right (not just half listening and looking to me as an obstacle in thier way.) I think I might quit now while I'm still optimistic.

    Monday they will beg me to death. Wednesday I'll cave.

    But I'm actually stuck on a load for once, so I'm gonna shimmy up to New Boston and get my Fast pass paperwork started. Dont deliver till Monday in Canton Mi (Suicide coil.)


    I'm @ the Flying J in Walton KY.

    Spaceway in Meridian, MS. The shipper in Scottsboro, AL took 5.5 hours to load me, and Swift thinks it's going to be in Laredo by 0900 on Thursday.

    Swift thinks alot of things. Fortunately reality dosent care.

    I'm in Carryville TN. I have yet another roll of some sentinel's toilet paper (steel coil.)
    Headed back to Lovely Huger SC. Finally perfecting my technique on coils and..... I'm supposed to be headed to Phoenix in the next few weeks to meet with my new Boss in a brand new dedicated flatbed account hauling Gypsum board from Las Vegas to Rancho Cucomungo. I will finally be home every night.

    Which is rather convienent,,, since I was gonna quit at the end of the year to find something local worth doing. So they saved me the trouble and actually found me a spot..... More news on that when I get the rest of the details. But apparently every load is tarped and it's supposed to be grossed out with a day cab and 9500lbs trailer.

    If you're gonna be hauling out of the drywall plant south of vegas then I doubt it'll be home every night. Not trying to doubt you or the company but loaded there too many times to know better

    They did tell me how that was supposed to work. 1 day a week spend all day preloading trailers, the other 4 days I'll deliver em. They are trying to get 5 guys on the account so 1 guy preloads and 4 deliver on the same day.

    If that works I can see it.

    What concerns me is socal traffic. The time a day this stuff gets delivered will make the biggest difference for making it home and getting a hotel. And I15 manages the screw everything up all the time.

    At any rate, I'll have the plywood ready for the inevitable MoFNW traffic jam.
