Finally in Las Vegas and I'm doing a reset,  but don't seem to be any office people here today which means there won't be a van to borrow.  I've been driving night for the last two days and I was supposed to drop this trailer last night, but they didn't accept any drops before Sunday. 

Drove up to TA at Blue Diamond to park, but it was already packed.  Not really a surprise when it's 0100am Saturday morning. Even the paid parking was all taken or booked. Continued further up to North Las Vegas and parked at the yard. At least I got parked and Sam's club and In n'Out burgers are next door.

Then I'm here on the Memphis yard of Knight Transportation, ready to pick up a tcalled load going to Henderson NV. Don't know the trailer number right now, but no worries cause I'll be staying here tonight anyway.

Now doing some laundry, then I'll be heading for bed.

Had one long rest last night. Didn't start driving down here to Las Lunas before 15:30. My appointment was 18:30. Checked in about an hour before and got a door.

Now waiting for the buzzer to beep and get out of here. Will be loading in Las Cruces tomorrow morning, then I'll be heading to Memphis to switch trailers with another driver. My new load from Memphis goes back to Las Vegas.

I got my load to Frito Lay delivered and dropped, then I spent most of the day at the Knight Transportation yard in Salt Lake City. 

Headed up to Logan to pick up my next load to Walmart in Las Lunas NM. On my way up there it was pitch black and heavy rain. 

The shipper was great and very friendly, I told them I was out of hours and they told me to drop the trailer at the door and they would load it while I took my sleeper berth. Woke up next morning and I was ready to roll.

Someone performed a little hit and run on me yesterday. I was unable to get their info cause by the time I got outside I saw him disappear. Called the police and filled a report, but chances to find the guy were slim. It was only minor damages on my driver side mirror.

Picked up my preloaded trailer this morning, filled up a little fuel and headed up north. Now on I17 about 40 miles south of Flagstaff.

I will continue up on highway 89 then merge onto I15 later.

The load is delivered and I'm now parked at the Petro here in Casa Grande. Been here since the am.

I also got a new load from Frito Lay here in Casa Grande to Salt Lake City, picking up tomorrow sometime before noon and will be delivered on the 28th. That's about 700 miles from here.

Finally at my destination, parked at Loves 16:00 local time. Less than a mile from the receiver. Will deliver tomorrow at 09:00.

I made it to Flying J just outside of Albuerque last night and started there this morning around 7.


Sunday, October 23rd 2016

Started this morning at the Road Ranger in Brazil IN around 0900 and drove down to Troy IL to fuel up then finished my day here at this rest area just an hour east of Oklahoma City.

It was a good Sunday drive with 639 miles and three long breaks. Now it's time for my daily can food dinner.


Saturday, October 22nd 2016

Just arrived, but two hours late. No problem, load was not even ready. Waiting at the dock now. 

Dropped the other load this morning at Kraft, stopped by my terminal after to pick up some new trip sheets and a trailer.


Friday, October 21st 2016

Will be shutting down here at the rest area just about an hour east of Columbus.

Will deliver early tomorrow, appointment is 15:30, but it's just a drop so I should be good. Maybe time to stop by at home tomorrow after loading in Troy..
