I was pretty sure i was gonna make it home by on time until I got this load to Pontoon Beach were I ended up with no options other than going down to St Louis to pick up a load going west. With less than three days to my hometime I decided not to go further than Kansas City.
Shut down at the Knight yard in Kansas City with no news from dispatch, but next morning I requested an update thru the sonar. A few minutes later a relay was approved and a new load on the yard was mine to take, but it was going to Green Bay WI.
Took off and drove up to Green Bay, arrived around 2200 and shut down at the Country Express just of I43.
My appointment could have been allot better, it was at 1600, tried my luck by going over to the customer and asked if i could be unloaded earlier, but no. Waited a few hours, then they could unload me. Took them twenty minutes. That's a record.
My next load was at Americold in Darien WI, appointment at 1800. Impossible to make with a 1600 appointment three hours away. That load got rescheduled so when I got here i was told to wait until the morning. Hometime screwed for sure. Goodbye Mid American Truckshow.
Abbotsford is the first city of Wisconsin with a population of 2291 in 2013. A slow growing town.
Picking up a load here from Abbyland Beef to Russelville AR with delivery Thursday at 10:00.
This week started bad with a trip to Walgreen in Windsor WI. I had an appointment at 1230 which of course destroyed the rest of my dat. This place sucks cause no matter when you get here your day is over. Took the rest of my night at a TA just two miles down the road. Next day I went to pick up a load from Kraft foods in Aurora to Dot foods in Mt Sterling.
After spending all Thursday afternoon and night at Dot foods I went over to the local gas station next morning to spend the whole Friday there. Later that day I got a load from JBS in Beardstown going to Fort Worth Texas with delivery Monday at 1600.
I drove down there which was just 15 miles, but the load was not ready and I waited for it about 12 hours.
Now I'm in Anna TX waiting for my 1600 appointment. This completes a week full of shit.
Finally ready to pick up my load to Wisconsin for delivery on Saturday. Waited at the pilot for 24 hours. Hopefully they will load me fast so I can get out of here.
