After some time in the south the cold up here feels really bad but I will get used to it. Today unloading at GFS. My next stop on this trip will be Walmart in Bedford PA. Hometime is also getting closers :)
I reached Houston today. Was 2 hours short on my hours last night. Appointment at 2100 so no need to rush cause they wouldn't let me in earlier than 2030 anyway. I checked in around that time and was done at 2am. Went a couple of blocks to Budweiser and picked up a preloaded trailer to Wichita Falls. Just parked now on a small shady truckstop across the street from the brewery called Texas truckstop.
Loaded up a new load from Gaffney SC to Houston TX. On the picture some afternoon traffic jam in Atlanta GA. Now just done with my breakfast at Flying J in Hope Hull AL. I've got about 600 miles left and delivery is tomorrow the 13th at 2100.
Then I'm on my second and last delivery for this trip. Walmart DC in Clarksville AR. Was here early today so I spent a few hours in Russellville. Took a shower, had some dinner and played powerball. $800,000,000 in the jackpot tomorrow lol. Soon out of hours too so once I'm done here I will park at one of the independent truckstops just down the street. Goodnight!
Showed up at 1400 for my appointment at Walmart in New Albany. Checked in and got a door. This is the view from the truckers lounge they got here. It's actually just a small nasty bathroom. Pretty miserable!
I'm now at the Flying J in Matthews MO. Loaded up on Kraft in Champaign IL yesterday to Walmart in New Albany MS. Appointment time is 15:00 and I'm 4 hours away. No need to rush cause they won't let me in before an hour ahead of appointment time. Not so cold this morning, about 48F. Also got my last week's pay which is very frustrating. No wonder the trucking industry in this country is in lack of drivers when you actually gets more by working for a fast food chain!!
Back to work after some time at home can be hard. The day started chaotic, but turned out pretty good anyway. I was northbound on 65 when I thought it was time to check my clock. Wow only 10 minutes left before my 30 minutes break. Was sure there was gonna be a violation, but 7 minutes ahead was a rest area!
The start of a long line of trucks waiting to get into the MBM warehouse this morning. I showed up thirty minutes before my appointment, but was told to wait somewhere else and they would call me so I did. About an hour later they called and wanted me in door 23. When I got back, the lines were even longer with trucks waiting on the street blocking all traffic. I tried unsuccessfully to get around them and got into trouble with another trucker who screamed and called me everything from a to z, so I backed my truck out. Then I checked my google map and took a loop around the block, came in from the other side. No traffic at all and went right into my assigned door. I smiled and laughed when I saw the grumpy face of the fucktard who screamed at me. Still there waiting in the line.
In the Columbus yard now waiting for my 7am appointment in the morning. Loaded up at Merchandise Warehousing in Indianapolis. Also did my 50,000 miles road check today.
In Kentucky now. Parked at 4pm. Started early this morning, once my load was done. Around 4am. Waited all night for it. Tomorrow there won't be no alarm clock for me! Good night
