    Sitting in harrisonville, MO now. did a MAC 30 this morning and got the familiar msg, nothing avail. then when MT, did it again, and received ineligible to use. At the time I was on the phone with my DM, and he at the time did not know why. Then some further search, found out that I was transferred to the Wal-Mart fleet outta here. We bothed agreed, it would be nice to ask before just saying that we are going to do it. The planner called me up and asked if I would help out. We discussed my prior issues with Wal-Mart loads, and he told me that he would take care of me. Showed up, he is gone to lunch, and my load is not even ready still. Called my DM, told him, I am helping this once, then get me outta here. Talked to two other L/O's here helping, and both told me, lucky to see 2K/week.

    Kansas City, MO at the Petro.

    I had tried to t-call my load in Edwardsville.
    My DM said they were overbooked in that area, so no go on the t-call.

    So I deliver tomorrow in Indianapolis, hopefully to land a load going north to MN for some home time.

    Don't be.

    Who knows, you might be there when I get my home time.

    If so, I'll invite you over for dinner.

    Nothing I, or my family, likes better - than dinner when I'm cooking.
    :biggrin_25522:

    If you like Chinese, I make the best chicken fried rice you have never yet tasted.

    My curry chicken is to die for - or so my nephew tells me.

    And if those don't entice you, maybe an old fashion dinner.
    Roast chicken or turkey with stuffing, mashed potatoes and home made gravy, whatever veggie you like, some rolls - and maybe a pumpkin or lemon meringue pie.

    I had one of those ... Sat at the shipper for 12 hrs and load was still at least another 12 hrs before getting done ... had them take the load off of me and I got my 10 hours detention pay ... shipper called me 3 days later and said my load was ready for p/u ... I was 1500 miles away.

    Petro in SA, TX .. p/u a sweet little 1900 lb load to OH tomorrow. Got all weekend to loaf on it.

    Moose, I accept! My delivery is Sunday 715am. It would be cool if this timed right as I'm a pretty good cook myself.

    Anybody who will be in SE Wyoming this weekend better watch the weather. There's a severe winter storm warning with a forecast for heavy snow and 50mph winds that will also impact the Nebraska panhandle.

    I've been using the Weather Underground app (www.wunderground.com) on my phone; its served me well. I'm heading east on I-80 today and trying to get far enough into Nebraska that I'm only dealing with rain.
