    Shut down in Dodge City once again. Hope this load is ready early. Getting nose blind to the smell of these slaughterhouses.

    I got a warning light this morning, a yellow fuel pump. That's something I've never seen before.
    I pulled in to the TA in Foristell, MO and called on-road. They showed a fuel filter warning, so in the TA shop I went to replace them.
    Total time from pulling in to pulling out and back on the road was just under 1.5 hours. Not bad at all.

    Delivered that load to plainview then drove over to shipper down the street.
    Heavy load. Went to the t/a to scale before fueling. Could only put 60 gallons in. Did.t like the food choices there so came here.
    Delivering to el paso tx tomorrow

    Sounds like you picked up flour. Plenty of heavy loads in West Texas. Copper, Dog food, and flour.

    Ardmore, OK at the Love's.
    Pick up a load around the corner from here in the morning, headed to IL. That sets me up nicely for my home time load to MN.

    It looks barely doable if you are not slowed down in any way, and keep all other on-duty time to a bare minimum.

    Gotta love those DM's that say 'you can do it' because of what that stupid computer program tells them.
     
    dptrucker Thanks this.

    Called my dl and he talked me thru it.
