    Ok, ya I went to Lafayette first then to Indy. I generally run 41 down to 52 to avoid 65 seems as though it always has something going on. I was in that area at about 2am so I would have missed it anyhow.

    It's ok. Been busy working 6 days a week. This past week didn't do much Rails, was mainly doing Reefers and Vans.

    We get the shaft this year with Xmas and New Years on the weekends, no extra days off. Lol.

    Everything good with Kisawani?

    All is well, cant complain to be honest. I'm no complainer anyway, i do what i'm told, cant say for the rest tho. I think thats how every company works anyway, who ever does the less complaining is far better than thos who do complain. Lol
     
    RERM and HalpinUout Thank this.

    You can take either 80/94 to exit 2 which is Indianapolis Blvd/41 and run that south ( lots of stop lights until you get down to cedar lake area ) or you just take 394 south down through Crete/Beecher and it will eventually bring you out to 41. But either way yup you run 41 south and eventually you will hit 52.

    41 has pretty much no traffic south of the cedar lake area. It's wide open.

    Freezing early this morning. Lots of trucks and 4wheelers broke down on 294 today. I left for work at midnight it was -15 out. Ended up getting a flat drive tire today and sat for 7 hours waiting for it to be changed. Although I'm paid hourly sitting in a day cab not driving for 7 hours gets pretty darn boring!!!!
