    Yep 1 hr. Not 1 hr. and 4 minutes. Lol. I’ve literally had to turn around, go down the driveway, turn around again. Robert La. takes an hour sometimes, waiting in line, checking in, dropping trailer, checking in again. Always, at the window, it’s you’re late!! I don’t even bother, just agree, and go to my Truck.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone take to Trucking as easily as you have. Sure you weren’t a Driver in the past? Maybe it’s your age? Level of maturity? Realistic expectations? All of the above? Gotta hand it to you. Great attitude. You’re a Natural. Except for passing all the other Truckers in the right lane, Lol. We’ve all done that. I usually stop, once I realize I need to get over. Blocking traffic behind, from racing to the front. Easier to get mercy from other Truckers that way. The theory is if everyone gets in single file, we’ll all get through faster. I’m sure you get that part. Without a clear sign stating merge here, it’s a personal call. I prefer to let the 4 wheelers be the bad guys. Anyways didn’t plan on mentioning that. Lol. Just being objective. Enjoy home time. I’d say you’ve got it all figured out pretty good. I’m impressed, for what it’s worth.

    Got to my stop. 641 miles averaging 65mph across N. CO, WY, UT, and ID. Elk was playing it's normal bs of 60+mph wind gusts. Time to crash since I didn't hit anything today.

    Question for some of you PNW guys. Is there any parking on US20/OR126 in Oregon between Bend and Eugene, or should I just reserve a spot at the TA in Coburg? Location I deliver to Tuesday morning doesn't have overnight parking, and I'd be getting into the area late.

    No dedicated parking, like rest areas in that section that can take trucks. If you are willing to use very wide shoulders, there are a hand full of places that can fit a truck or 3. Otherwise no.

    So I dropped my phone out of Blackie last night ( again ). It's REALLY broke this time.

    However...………………...there's this place called UBreakIFix that makes billions of dollars off of people like me. And the last time the dude sold me on the free replacement warranty.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

    Doesn't replace the whole phone, just the screen. If you ever see a modern smart phone taken apart, like half the electronics are one with the screen. And part of their pitch is they put this stuff on there that's supposed to make the screen indestructibly hard. Ummmmmm, yea, well......NOT. It's so broke this time can't even use it.

    Of course they are a nationwide company.....EXCEPT.....they have no stores in El Paso. Got like a dozen in San Antonio, and we just happen to be going through there. So we are without communication link to the outside world.

    I bought some wifi from Petro for $6 for 24 hours.

    The OM jumped out of the truck and awarded a non WIIS trucker a Savage Medal ( 2nd Class ).

    Some flatbed dude that might be older than I am. He's brushing his teeth while thumping his tires.

    People that live with un-mowed lawns should not throw stones.
