    Not gonna be a good night for me. An hour after my 14 ran out, this almost new POS reefer started shutting down and throwing codes. I have cleared them and it started running again, but who knows if that will last, so I have to babysit another problematic pile of junk...honestly, is there any piece of equipment at this company worth a ####? I mean, when will these people learn, you go cheap on equipment, it only costs you more in the long run.

    Call road service and go to bed. If the load gets ruined it’s not your problem. You are under hours of service not the company. If you stay up and babysit the reefer all night you are in violation. Maybe then they will fix your issues.

    You missed the big wreck on the 81 yesterday. Quite a delay. But I made it and am in Lynchburg Virginia this morning.

    I swear, I-81 is getting as bad as I-80 in WY during winter. Every week I see news about some wicked crash...almost makes me want to be a FL/GA dedicated driver

    New experience with my next load. Going to Conagara/underground in Carthage, MO. I've been in Subtropolis, northeast of KC, and some caves southwest of KC, but never been in any in the Carthage area before.

    Carthage is actually pretty easy with lots of room to maneuver. You’ll pull up to the guard shack at the end of Civil War road and they’ll direct you from there.
