Got a call from dispatch last night (sat. ) about a retrival load at first i thought he was joking. They wanted to know if i would DH about 900 miles to Wyoming to retrive a load and deliver it Monday in Nevada ( 900 more miles ) 1 skid 300 lb.s ALL MILES PAID at very good rate. I HATED to turn it down BUT i had been up all day and it was 10 PM when they called. I just didn't fell SAFE about driving all that miles with just a minimal SLEEP period inbetween. HOPE for a great call like that to start off week TOMORROW.
Finally got back to computer . Last Tues. (29th) Grand Rapids, Mi. to Columbus, In. Weds. Indianapolis to Pittsburg,Pa. Thurs. Pittsburg to Raleigh,NC, Friday night PAID DH to Virginia. Sunday VA. to Laredo, Tx. MONDAY delivered 18 hours early. SLEEPING alot the last 24 hours sitting number 5 now Probably looking at getting out thursday.
Been home (IA.) since tuesday night. Called in last night to OFFICE and it sounds slow now through end of holidays. My PHONE will stay on and my VAN ready to roll incase i get a call. BUT if not atleast I'm at HOME with FAMILY.
Still at home (Ia.) , had very good weekend with family and got to windup (tease) my nieces children and then send them home with their parents. IF the PHONE rings about a LOAD this WEEK thats ok IF not thats OK to.
Out driving around FOLLOWING a LOAD 1 and also EXPRESS 1 sprinters trying to FIND their GOOD LOCATIONS here in IOWA. NAH just kidding I'm home bumming watching football. Hope you all enjoy the weekend, cause i see driving in BAD weather in our future.
