My hometime this year for Christmas got longer than expected due to the extraction of three wisdom's teeth. It was absolutely my worst dentist appointment ever.
I was at home for a week longer than planned due to the enormous pain I had, but Tuesday January 3rd I had to go back for work. Lost enough money already.
Went and did my road ready service in Columbus then got a trip from Troy OH to Casa Grande AZ. Just perfect. Now on the 7th I feel my jaws aching less and hopefully soon the 800mg ibuprofens are no longer Necessary.
Just done with my delivery at Ryder in Rochelle IL. My appointment was at 0400 and I backed into a door then went to bed. At 0830 this morning they knocked on my door and told me they were ready to unload. Done at 11:00 which gives me 5 hour detention pay.
I was loaded up at Americold in Atlanta GA around 23:00 and rolled soon after I got my bills. Drove most of the night and took a 10 hour on a rest area in Illinois just across the Kentucky stateline. Picture is taken while driving next evening from the rest area. A beautiful sunset.
My next load will be over at Arzyta in Romeoville IL, going to Walmart in Washington Courthouse in Ohio.
The day ends here at Knight Transportation in Atlanta, GA after my delivery at Walmart In Brundidge AL.
Started this morning a little later than usual from Birmingham AL, drove 3 hours down to Brundidge for my 13:45 appointment at Walmart. This load was supposed to be picked up in Russellville AR on Saturday, but it wasn't ready before right after midnight.
My next load will be picked up tomorrow at 2100 from Americold here in Atlanta and will be going to Rochelle IL.
Been a while since I posted, I've been quite busy with late loads and short trips, and I was hoping to get west this time. I finally got a load to Temple TX which is west, but home time is soon here so I need to get back as soon as I got here.
Delivery was at Walmart in Temple, TX. Now I'm at the Shelby cold storage in Amarillo picking up a load going to Forth Smith, AR.
Pickup time was 7 according to the message, but they don't open before 8. Good thing I drove up here last night after my sleeper birth and not waited until after midnight as suggested.
A slow start on my week at work. Spent pretty much the whole first day in the shop for a B service, but also got the front heater and my cracked windshield fixed.
First load was delivered late at Armada in Greecastle PA so spent my whole day at the receiver next day waiting for a door.
Now on my third day in Mechanicsburg PA waiting to get loaded here at QPSI. This was supposed to be picked up yesterday, but I arrived this morning at 07:00 like planned so it's good. Going to Johnson & Johnson in Mooresville IN.
Finally at my destination and ready for delivery tomorrow morning then I'm heading home once I found a place to drop the trailer. Most likely 90 miles the opposite way to the Indy yard ugh...
Then I'm home for a week, lots of stuff to do unfortunately lol
Made it to Flying J in Mandan ND. Mandan was founded in 1879 and is the eight largest city in North Dakota with a population of 18300.
The city was named after the historic Mandan indians in the area.
By making it here tonight means I'm on schedule for on time delivery at Walmart on wednesday. Even though I should have had my hometime started on Tuesday because of my dentist appointment on Wednesday.
We'll see how it goes, having it tcalled would be perfect.
Was a short day today, my 70 hour limit is on my back again. Drove about 5-6 hours from Petro Spokane to Town Pump/Flying J here in Butte.
About halfway, just after Wallace ID it started to snow and cover up the roads in the mountain area, but got soon better once I was down on the other side.
Tomorrow will be better, I'm gaining a full 11 hour and hopefully I'll make it to Flying J in Mandan ND.
Went bed early last night, was super tired lol. Woke up early this morning because of the stupid sonar device starting to beep and talk. Noticed it was stuck on drive mode all night.
Now even after my sleeper birth I'm out of hours because of it. Called the dispatch too have them fix it, after 45 minutes on hold I got thru and told them about it and now almost two hours later I'm still sitting with no hours and no logs fixed from those incompetent idiots. Also sent them a message about it.
I guess I gotta call back in and wait on hold for another xx minutes.
Long day today, started early to drive 3,5 hours up to Bluebird in Peshastin WA to load a few pallets of pears, then back down Kershaw Fruit in Yakima WA to load apples.
Now I'm a couple hundred miles east at Petro on i-90. Pretty tired. Just had a boring subway meal.
The next few days will only be driving to get the fruit to Wal-Mart in Gas City IN, then home.
