    Spent the day waiting on truck. Transfer stuff, kitted it out, had no securemnt equipment. Took 2 hours to load it up with chains and what not. got the open rack on back so i had to get creative with my organization.

    Got a load over from CMC around Queen creek AZ. Rebar. Flagged up ready to roll to Brighton CO for monday. Got it on one of the new shiny 2020 flatbeds.

    I thought that might be it. Just don't be like one driver from back east that was scheduled to load in Eureka and went to Yreka instead. LOL...he couldn't figure out why none of the directions got him anywhere but lost.
     
    Rugerfan and dptrucker Thank this.

    Findlay, OH.
    340 empty miles to pick up a load with 630 miles loaded to Memphis, TN. OK.
    I get here and the load had already been picked up earlier today, and not even a Swift truck. Go figure.

    After a few hours I get a call from an ECT at my terminal. He says he noticed the note asking a planner to get me a pplan, which had not happened yet. He is still able to plan so he went to work finding me something.
    I wanted to get west of here so he got me a load here in town that I could t-call at Gary tomorrow, then another load out of Romeoville going to Denver that delivers Wednesday.
    He spent about 20 minutes working everything out.
    I really like the people at my terminal. They are so helpful.

    Jurupa terminal.
    Delivered that load of bark at a nursery down the street from here.
    Was stressing on how they were going to unload the stuff. Bark was just dumped In the trailer.
    Thought they were going to use shovels lol.
    But ended up using a tractor and took about 2 hrs to get it off.
    Another worker came over and used a gas lower blower to clean out the trailer.
    I have a 1500 doc appt today and another one tomorrow with same doctor. Cpap b.s. again.
    Got a motel for tonight 10.minutes away

    Got the truck in the denver shop. Got one heck of a battery leak. Shop smelled me just driving up, the entrance to the terminal. Was gonna pick up a paper load going to SLC..... Might still. They said they might have it done before they close.

    Brush, CO at the Love's.

    A pplan came in just as I was pulling in.
    "We know you will be late, it just has to deliver on time."
    It is supposed to pick up today, and it delivers tomorrow in Logan, UT at 2200 at Sam's.

    My delivery in Denver tomorrow morning is at 0900, a live unload.
    Even if I stayed in Denver tonight (which I'm not), my 14 would expire just as I hit the Sam's dock. No way.
