    Freight must be picking up a little. There were very few domiciled trucks on the High Point Yard this morning. There were also 3 or 4 system drivers there as well.

    11/28-11/30
    Monday I got a 370 mile load from Reidsville NC to Dalton Ga. 3 compartment tank delivering at 2 different Shaw plants right across the street from each other Tuesday AM. Since Morrow didn't want a compartmented tank I was dead headed back to High Point.

    Its funny how things work out sometimes. I stopped north of Atlanta at 5PM Monday choosing to avoid rush hour traffic and run the loop early the next morning. I assumed I could still make it back to High Point Tuesday night if necessary and if given a load out of Morrow would have plenty of time. Had a flat the next morning and some problems at the second plant that ate up some of my 14. Wound up stopping in Blacksburg SC.

    I could have gotten up early and been back at the terminal by 6 AM. I chose to sleep in and plan my arrival for around 8:30 when the office folks were there. They had me run to Charlotte to swap trailers (center unloader for a rear) so I picked up an extra 160 miles for sleeping in.

    Got an out and back dedicated run that loads 6AM Friday in N Chicago . I normally leave the house around 3:30-4AM Thursday on this load. I chose to go ahead and grab my trailer today and get an early start. Shut down in Beckley WV tonight. Running the extra day lets me start my days a little later. I also won't have to drive as far Saturday to get home.

    That sucks. I had a problem getting a trailer a couple of weeks ago at Markham. Its happened enough that I start searching for them 2-3 hours early if possible. That must have been quite a delay. Those Rabbi's don't work early morning hours. Hope they have someplace to park at the consignee. Doubt you will have time to get to Paulsboro after that delivery.

    Man oh man what aday i had, got to customer with 5 minutes to spare, i really hate pushing it like that. Anyway started hooking up there 120' hose one piece and relized that my external valve turn wheel was gone no biggy had that happen before but the packing nut was also gone man i freaked. someone had to steal it when i fueled cause it was there when i pretripped, anyway had to go to paulsboro bobtail and get replacement parts so could unload man talk bout a long day. ya'll watch for that when fueling met a driver from transport said he was at a truck stop in jersey and some took the whole external unit while he was sleeping. must be steeling for the metal money stainless and aluminum. Hey ya'll be safe, take care and happy trails

    That's crazy. I will be heading that direction on Monday. Got a load going to Wantagh NY. That's out on Long Island. Think I will step out of my truck and make sure my fittings box is locked.

    That would definitely suck. Loaded at Karns City (Sonneborn?) with a Brown Summit load. Got via'ed through Kingsport so I am sitting at the house with the wife. Leaving tomorrow afternoon.

    Haven't been into NYC or any of the boroughs with Superior but did it when I was flatbedding. Not too bad out on Long Island once you get there. Just go in late (or early depending on how you look at it).:biggrin_25520:

    Probably end up at High Point after u/l. Might be a drop and hook..we'll find out.
