    That should be a beautiful drive. Hopefully the weather holds. I just passed through eastern Utah on I-70 (which you will cross), be prepared for cold weather. Low temperatures are approaching 0ºF.

    Beach, ND at the J.

    I'm headed to Aberdeen, SD with a load of paper.
    It's the same pplan that was removed from me last night just as I delivered my last load, and they sent it back this morning with barely enough time to do it.

    If anyone is getting their PTA mysteriously reset to odd times the problem is due to an upgrade/update to the Mac30 system that apparently wasn't tested. We not only have KPM but the Obamacare website writers club helping us do our jobs. Yeah, no. Thanks.

    I'm really close to boycotting any loads to, from or controlled by Lancaster terminal but now I'm thinking I might run exclusively Command loads.

    parked in my usual favorite spot at the flyingj in Bakersfield, its a small spot in the corner that only a bobtail or one of those small expedited trucks can fit in, an expedited truck got it before me one of the last times.

    Took my load to Gilroy, got 2 pplans for tomorrow to take a load to Tulare and then down to Grenada Hills for a live unload, I was told Yussen loads are slow so im just on standby for one of those tomorrow night, I will start my clock a little later that way I have plenty of hours to get one and return with it if they give it to me. They normally give me a call letting me know when my loads cut early but if they do I will just ignore it and keep with my schedule as planned, today they called me letting me know my Gilroy load cut 6 hours early which surprised me but I left home early to get it done and shut down earlier.

    Also just fixed my cb, I ended up buying a dual mount kit and mounted the antennas to the bar above the catwalk for now until I can get the adapters I need for this cascadia, it might not be the most ideal place but at least now my cb is working and the antenna system doesnt fail during diagnostics.

    Sitting in the Target parking lot in East Hanover, NJ. Got here to drop the trailer with 27 minutes left on my 14; the DC is 210 miles away, so I knew I was camping out.

    The "no appreciable accumulation" snowstorm yesterday dumped 2+ inches in central PA. I was heading EB on the PA Turnpike, and saw the carnage on the WB side. Several multi-vehicle accidents, probably from speeding; unable to stop in time and slammed into the stopped traffic.

    Made it home about 21:00 on Christmas Eve. Asked to tcall the load in Ocala on my way by and was told no. Got a call from some ###### in Phoenix demanding that I return to my truck immediately and stay with it for the remainder of my hometime or proceed to final because I was in violation of some theft policy. Explained that I asked to get rid of the trailer and was then threatened with having the equipment recovered at my cost. Load didn't deliver until Monday. Worked out a plan with dispatchers to eat Christmas dinner, sleep in the truck, the take the load to Ocala the next morning. Arrived in Ocala with no tcall on the load. So after finally getting them to add it, I turned my truck in and told my DM that I am due for five days of hometime and that starts on Thursday since I was dealing with this crap my first two days. Not playing these games anymore. Probably will just resign next week and find something else. My truck has been returned and the load was taken off me so they can't say I abandoned equipment or quit under dispatch. This place is ridiculous.

    was driving north of sanderson tx on hwy 295 in wet weather. didnt see this sherriff with lites on until he was already at my bumper. was slowing down and moving onto shoulder when he went by me. i had just gone over a hill and didnt see him when i was at the top. anyways, abit further i see that there was activity around this curve so i got it slowed down before entering and the same cop was blocking the lane. he motioned me forward and started acting their normal power trip lol. ask me why i didnt pull over and let him by, i said didnt see you until rite at my bumper. anyways, kept my mouth shut and he kept on. he got so worked up he said hes taking my license away. gave it to him and he ran my number. gave my license back and he said he was notifying dps to take it. didnt give me a tix,inspection, or anything. lol. then he told me to get the @@@ out of there. i just igored his rant and proceeded to go around the wreck. ambulances and firetrucks were already goone when i got there so didnt see anything except a truck blocking the lane. didnt want to make him any madder or i wouldve called his bluff and got out of the truck and tell him since you took it, i cant drive the truck lol.
