I love driving in the western states, but yesterday I got a load back to Harissburg PA which got canceled cause I was out of 70. Today I'm just chilling at the yard in Denver.
Went for some shopping at Walmart with some other drivers and lunch at Dairy Queen. Now I'm just done with a shower and waiting for my laundry to be done.
My next load is tomorrow at Greeley CO to Phoenix AZ so I'm happy. Seems like I get to stay out west a little longer. ..
It got late fast last night. After working myself through two accidents in North Carolina things got better, at least a few hours. Drove I77 north through Charleston and up to I70.
Had a 5 minute break at the last rest area before Columbus, then I continued towards Springfield when I ran into the third accidents (picture) on this trip. This one was really bad. Got stuck on the freeway for three hours without moving an inch. I fel asleep for an hour or so during that time.
It started moving again around 5am and I arrived at the shipper around 6. Slept two more hours on the shoulder, then woke up little before 8 and did my delivery.
Now I'm waiting to finish my ten hour break so I can pick up my next load to Dunkin Donuts NJ.
Accidents and accidents. Lots of them today and I'm gonna run out of hours. Crossing my fingers. It's 6pm now and I've got 460 miles left to go...
