    Yeah for Craig and Anne!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Did you go west on I-44? I live off of exit 18...71N...in Carthage. Springfield is about 60 miles or so from my house.

    Am currently sitting at the Flying J in Winchester, VA waiting for a empty. Got here yesterday afternoon....delivered to Home Depot this morning and there were no empties......MAYBE by 1500.............have already had two loads taken off me because of not having an empty.

    Went out to Home Depot at 1500 yesterday....another driver had the empty....sat there for 5 hrs, calling the guard shack every couple of hours.....came back to the truck stop at 2000.

    Got up this morning and called.....there was one mt...."please don't give it away"....20 minutes later I pulled in and the trailer was going out....so now I'm back at the truck stop.

    I actually sent a message to dispatch "Shippensburg?...Mechanicsburg?...Repower?....Anything?"

    Got a PP to pick up a load in Charlotte, NC and take it to Myrtle Beach, SC.......and got sent to Charlotte to get an MT. 350+ miles, 7 hours of driving at night.....NO MT!!!!

    So now I'm sitting at the Pilot in Charlotte and will go to Lexington tomorrow to get a load that delivers 35 miles north in Kernersville.

    At least you are getting paid for the miles to search for a non-existent trailer

    So we got the dog (Max) ready to go with us today. All shots done and he will have a good bath tonight. Anne got her new Droid Incredible phone today and is playing with it now. She is going to love being on Verizon compared to ATT. Big snow storm coming into Denver tomorrow night, or so they say. We are going to call our FM in the morning and ask him to get us out of here before it hits.

    Hello everyone. I have been with the company for a little over 2 years now. 1 as a lease driver. I am now back to company since Oct. It has been interesting. The 08 Volvo I am in has made it that way. Since Dec, I have had it in the shop 8 times for related issues. 4 of them for an injector electrical fault code in the computer. I thought it was fixed in February when the dealer in nashville spent 8 days on it. Fortunately that time I was at the house. Now the fuel system is losing prime. When I shut it off, even to just fuel, it takes forever cranking to get fuel to start. Ellenwood had it for 8 days last week and I had to run some locals in a day cab to make a little money. I have been driving this truck from terminal to terminal letting everyone have a crack at it. Now I am completing a 34 in Florence, Ky. and taking to the dealer in Cinci in the morning so they can have a crack at it. I tried to get another truck but they say there are none available. Other than that, I am doing great. Hope you are all the same. LOL
