That's great. It was cool to meet you out here in Arizona of all places. I should make it home Monday. A couple of days off and an out and back dedicated run and I will have 3 pretty good pay checks in a row.

Cool can't wait for a weekend to get together and do some brats and beer.
After a boring 34 hours at Markham I got rolling again around midnight Saturday/Sunday. With a 3 hour delay loading the load was tighter time wise than I had anticipated. I didn't have to hurry but with a couple of stops for coffee, fuel and breakfast combined with losing an hour into the EST time zone I found myself pulling into the plant about 15 minutes before my appointment with about 1.25 hours left on my 14. Fortunately they took me right in, unloaded me quickly and I had about 15 minutes left on my 14 as i pulled out of the gate.
I asked at the guard house if they had any parking at the plant. They directed me to a gravel lot with plenty of room about 300 yards away on the way out. I did my break there then headed home for a few days off.
Make a note Colgate Palmolive in Cambridge Oh has truck parking on site. There is no bathroom there but there is a bowling alley about 1/2 mile away.

Got jerked around a little this week. I got home Mon and told dispatch that I wanted to go back out Thursday and would love something dedicated out and back. Got a call Tuesday AM saying they needed me to run a paint load leaving Wednesday. I rearranged my plans only to get a call back Tuesday evening saying they didn't need me on that load after all. That was cool I had some stuff to do.
I still asked to go out the end of the week to get some more money on next weeks check. All they had for me was a 525 mile snot load to Yonkers NY delivering Monday morning at 7AM. Its also "real tight" according to dispatch and you have to unload in 2 different places. Guess you have to take the bad with the good sometimes. 5 days at home during the week doesn't make for a very good paycheck though.

by the way anybody driving 2212 out of charlotte there's a full load of resin in the truck pump, i hope by now it's locked up and unuseable, maybe you can break the shaft.
The only time it got bad was when freight got real slow a couple of years ago. Then they will dispatch the system guys rather than pay them layover and let the home guys sit making no money.
All in all they do a fairly good job spreading the money around. Company drivers all make about the same here.
