    The system has picked up from what it was a couple of years ago. Keep us posted on that Cryogenic stuff. You have a problem lots of folks would like to have 50K in 10 months. I am a couple of grand ahead of where I was last year and am staying out longer.

    Its always a balance between home time and the money. An experienced dispatcher makes all the difference in the world. Paulsboro has been going through them like dirty socks.

    Does Superior let you take your truck home during your time off.

    You sir were not there.

    I followed procedures to the letter and put the product where they told me to. It was 100% on them because they did not know what the product was after reading the bills and coa. The guy put his hand on the pipe, I hooked everything up and had him look at it again and sign my paperwork before pumping. The pipe was labeled Butyl Acetate. I am 100% sure you would have done the same thing (except possibly hunting someone down to get the signature before turning it loose). Customer even admitted as much.

    I ain't no stinking sir!

    We all screw up. The good driver covers his rear. The bad one starts pulling reefers.

    I was laughing reading it, and had visions of Lloyd Christmas and Harry Dunne dancing in my head. Lighten up.

    3/7-3/11

    Headed out Monday with a snot load heading to Corona Ca. It was pretty much an uneventful trip running a little over 600 miles per day. The delivery appointment was for Monday 3/14 but I knew heading out that they would take it early.

    This was one of the tightest places to get into that I have done in 3 years. Blind side serpentine back with lots of tanks, pipes and unmarked land mines along the way. I bet I got out of the truck 20 times looking at the set up. Once I got in there ( it took me just under an hour to back in the unload was fast. I was only there 2.5 hrs which is fast for snot.

    They had me preplanned on a load to Belen NM. After unloading I had my tank washed out and dropped it at Ashland in LA. I am at the Ramada 1.5 miles away.

    The load is supposed to be ready at 1300 tomorrow (Saturday) and delivers Monday morning at 7 AM. I expect I will be out of hours after delivering since I won't get a reset. I pick up good hours Monday at midnight and expect to be dead headed to Memphis. Hopefully they will let me stay at the plant that long.

    Good week but I miss the Sacramento reload for Brown Summit.
