    I'm at shipper in VA being loaded. Will have about 4 hrs by the time they finish... going to IN. Not sure will find parking at this time... maybe yes, maybe no, there's not much anything till my hrs expire.... Wish I could drive till 8 am when it's easy to find parking.... So, will ask shipper if I can break here. They have a big quiet lot with lots of trlrs. Maybe they will say YES! :yes2557: And I can start early in the morning. It will be an 11 hr drive. Then, after dlvr, got to go to IL for another pick up.

    Same place as I was last time.
    Granted I left and came back. Had a nearly 34hr restart waiting on customs paperwork only to find out it got fudged up somewhere and after 4 hours of being stuck at the border they told me to go back to Montreal and drop it in a drop yard.

    ...and I did.

    Still in Vegas. Turns out the entire wiring harness was ordered and the whole interior of the truck, from just in front of the cabinets, had to come out to install it. I'm chillin in a casino hotel in a bad neighborhood. Found out why craps is so easy to spend a lot of money on in a big hurry. Then, poked twenty bucks in a quarter machine, played until I got bored with it and came back to my room. And gave the dog a bath. He was thrilled with that idea. :biggrin_25513: but, it was more productive than losing money in the casino.

    Here's the key to that: Never go into a casino with money you cannot afford to lose. And I didn't.

    Oh. Finally have a carrier bringing my pickup out from Michigan. Sweetened the pot by a hundred bucks and CanAm is loading it tomorrow. It will be $1,150 to the driver, COD. The broker got $200. Total of $1,350. Not cheap, but slightly less than flying a friend out to get it for me. Which I was starting to consider. Anyway, my pickup will be in Idaho on Saturday. Either it's a team runnning it, or a guy with a fast truck. None of my business either way. I'm paying to have it brought out. Not to run the trucking company. It'll be nice to have that 4WD in Northern Idaho this winter.

    Hammer166: Appreciate you trying to check on that for me.

    Seriously? You're surprised by this in a state where beer is its own food group and hanging out at the bar is a national sport?!?:biggrin_25523:
