    The circle of freight.

    South Carolina to North Carolina to Ohio, back to North Carolina.
    Load this morning back to where I started in South Carolina. All within a few miles of previous pick up or drop. Funny how it works out sometimes

    Here in Ruther Glen. I thought about running over to the University of Virgiania in Charlottesville, check out the campus, the famous Civil War statues, maybe grab some lunch.

    Then I realized that was about like going for a casual hike in the mountains... in Afghanistan... and then being shocked when the Taliban shows up.

    Woke up and decided to play a rousing game of where am I?
    Took me about 30 seconds of process of elimination, since I had no clue where I was, let alone what state I was in

    Nice start to the week. Monday South Carolina to (insert Billy Joel music) Allentown, PA. Every time I come here I get that dang song stuck in my head

    About 8 hrs before I got there, got a call about another load picking up in the morning, put on 20min. reserve but didn't hear back. Was able to get unloaded early and making plans for some sleep.

    Sent off my empty info and...ding, "new trip plan available".

    Glad for the load, but sure would have liked to have known about it hours ago. I would have planned this trip differently.

    So headed off to New Jersey to beat the Tuesday morning rush.

    Loaded up in the morning and now in Richmond Virginia.

    Waited out the heavy rain storms that seem to be following me at a Walmart before moving on to a Pilot.

    Saw something I wish I hadn't.
    Came across a accident. Pickup Truck slammed into a cement barrier. The body laying on the side of the road covered with a sheet.

    With my medical background, I've seen more then my share of death. All my years of driving I've never seen it in my travels. I've seen many accidents where it looked liked no one could of survived, but never a body, at least not for sure.

    You see it on TV all the time, but seeing it first hand, like that, well, I'm not sure how I'm feeling. Can't really find the right description. More of a reflection on life, and how precious life is, and how easily in an instant it can be taken away.

    I wish I had something more profound to finish with, but...

    Be careful out there gang.

    Oh my, got some information on the crash. It was a women involved in the crash. Survived the crash, she got out and was hit by a car.

    One person killed in crash on Route 288 in Chesterfield

    One person died after a crash on southbound Route 288 in Chesterfield on Tuesday night.

    The incident happened just before 10 p.m. near the Powhite Parkway interchange. Police say a woman crashed her truck into a concrete barrier, got out and then wandered onto the roadway.

    She was then hit by an oncoming vehicle. She was pronounced dead on the scene.

    ---That explains why I saw her body about 50 yards from the crash, very sad :(

    That is sad, and sadly you hear about that happening quite often after accidents. Not sure if people are dazed and confused and accidentally walk into traffic or what.

    Busy day yesterday and off to a strong start this morning! Go Load One!

    I'm back in service. Sister and Brother in law are back in Alaska and I had to take a few extra days off to get the parents squared away. All is good now and time to start making some $$$$$
