    Long and bouncy...I forgot how bad spring ride trailers ride when loaded.

    Got to the Petro in Ontario on Wednesday afternoon with 8 left on my 70(I started my 70 last Friday). I delivered yesterday afternoon in Mira Loma, and now I am doing a 34. They had originally planned me on a load Wednesday afternoon that picked up after I got empty a few miles away from my delivery, but it needed to be in Loveland CO on Saturday, and given the load weight and the route, I knew I would be a little short on hours to make it there on time. They said, we can reschedule or repower enroute as long as we get the load moving. So, when I got empty yesterday, I waited...and waited...and waited. No load appeared. I asked them when they were going to send me the CO load, they said 'what CO load? You are planned on an OR load'...WTF? I guess they removed the CO load and planned me on a OR load that delivers Monday, and never said a word. Some things never change.

    On an odd note, my load from NC to CA was a full load of Reddi Whip. When I got the bills, it had an 'X' in the HM column, and a UN number...turns out, Reddi whip is a class 2.2 hazmat load, or at least the aerosol propellent is...but it has a special permit that doesn't require placards.

    The one thing I am gonna have to get use to here is sending a message or moving my truck every 12 hours. They have it set up in the system that if you don't do one or the other, the computer sends you a message asking if you're alright. I guess they've had some people croak out here and it took days before anyone missed them, so now they ask you to keep in touch every 12 hours.

    A view of my shower here at the J in Jurupa Valley, CA...(a.k.a. Mira Loma)

    Guess this must be a 'team' shower

    Nice, man haven’t thought about spring trailers since the 80’s lol. This time round in trucking I have been spoiled. Headed back to CA from MS myself, looks like this time out I’m gonna be a dedicated CA run guy :).

    Hey @iraqralph43, does Creafer send everyone a msg daily about the hours they're getting back the next 2 days, or is it just something they do for newly hired drivers until they are convinced they know how to work the ELD. The last couple days (once I had 8 days on the logbooks) I have gotten a msg about the hours I am getting back for a couple days...I have an app for that, and certainly don't need the #####-box to tell me what I already know. Seems to be a lot more rookie hand holding going on since I Ieft 7 yrs ago.
