    I got my trailer over at Grace TW in Memphis and headed out this morning for my DH to Cincy. Along the way I got a "Change of Plans" message. Now I load tomorrow at 10 for an 8 Am delivery Monday morning in Tupelo MS. Right back down to Memphis.

    No directions on the T/O and not much time to pull it off. Loads at 10? Might get out of Cincy by 1, then delivers at 8 am? 10 hours away? We'll see how it works out. If anything goes wrong(delays at shipper etc.) it will be late.

    Nope, Snot load out of Greensboro delivering to the Waste Water Treatment Plant just across the bridge on I-75. I have done it 3 or 4 times. Its not bad. they have a pump at the plant you can use and its in a garage like building so you are out of the elements if its raining.

    Exit 6? Off of 75? Did they take 4 hours because of paperwork issues? Last few times I've been there it has been a paperwork nightmare.

    Yep, that's the place but it was a Sunday morning and didn't have any problems at all. Went pretty well.

    I loaded there this afternoon. They got me out in 2 hours.

    Pretty good turn around for Cincy. Got unloaded at around 12:30 and had a 4 PM appointment to load at BASF/Cognis heading to BASF/Cognis in Mauldin SC. As an added bonus this load is only 11,000 lbs which should make the gorge into Ashville a little easier.

    That is good turnaround time. I've heard about Magnolia place. Every time I'm in Memphis I go to that place right across the river. I can't remember the name. Had f un on the 17 from Phx to Flagstaff . Crazy snowstorm that shut it down for a couple of hours. A real joy when your mt.

    Tankwashed back to High Point after dropping the loaded trailer and hooking to a dirty one at Mauldin. Its funny a SPCR Driver came in right after me. He had loaded in Cincinnati 2 hours after me with the same product. He had 12,000 lbs and I had 11,500. The empty I had was the same product delivered the day before weighing 31,000 Lbs. Why not put 23,500 on my trailer rather than use 2 trucks? Good for us I guess.

    Sitting at home today working my honey do list. Got a 450 mile load tomorrow headed to Alabama delivering Friday.

    They originally had me on that Mauldin load but took me off for the Tupelo MS.

    I ran that Winder GA from Magnolia. Not too bad but really tight on the schedule. I got empty last night and got to bed around 2 AM.

    Atlanta didn't have anything so I tried Greer and High Point..nothing. I only had 12 hours left on my 70 so Atlanta just deadheaded me home. If I am going to do a 34 I would rather do it and home.
