    Settling in for the day, night in Colombus MO. Thinking tomorrow we might need more than the horseshoe. Trying to get OVM to let me have his lucky hot dog bun!

    If I have that horseshoe (allegedly), I may need to hold onto it for a bit...

    Been doing ok even without the horseshoe, just finished my 3rd load since Monday. And last week almost doubled my minimum amount that I feel is good week. Been out 10 days now and if I just drove home, I'd still have had a great short 2 week stretch.

    If I have the horseshoe, I'm glad to hold onto it...had a load sat, sun, Mon and tues...if I get a few more I'll call it a hotstreak...could just be Memorex right now.

    Well, it took a few hours, and a certain dispatcher to climb on a bar stool, then BAM, 1750 miles EP to Saginaw MI at relaxed pace for Monday delivery

    Under way from Ironwood, MI (Upper Peninsula on WI line) to Connersville, IN direct. After delivery will drive an hour to sleep in my bed unless magic word hits us before that.

    Wife back from her little hospital stay. Waldo is washed, has fresh oil and transmission fluid and new shoes all around. Went with the stock size Firestone Transforce HT this time. If the wife feels good this evening I'll be needing my horseshoe back by tomorrow morning.

    I was trying to make it to the end of November on the tires. But 4/32 on 2 of them and 2/32 on the other 2. Probably went too far already. Plus Ford price matched the lowest price and gave me a $110 rebate plus 12 months free interest. So $558 with mounting, balancing and installation. Lifetime free rotations. Was getting about 80K on the Hankooks, hoping the Firestones go further.

    No hint of transmission shudder at all since it was fixed about 90K ago. Figured I'd change the fluid before it decided to reappear.
