Isn't it lovely when you only get 3 hours of sleep and have to use the remaining 7 hours of your sleeper birth to drive in off-duty between two companies and unload.
That's what's happening today and it's not the first time in this company known as Knight Refrigerated. Yesterday I only got 4 hours of sleep when they called me at 03:00 and wanted to unload me.
Later that day I got a new load up to Woodruff in Springfield OH. Was supposed to be ready at 14:00, but dispatch told me I could start at noon. So I did silly me. Load was ready closer to 17:00 then I took of for the 9 hour long drive up to Ohio. Needless to say I was damn tired and only halfway. Driving gets a bit slower when I get tired so I had to drive the last 25 miles on off-duty to make it to the receiver.
So now I'm here still waiting to get done, then I'll pick up another Dole load to Wal-Mart in WI tonight at 22:00.
