Good Tuesday morning all. Numbers are decent to start the day so hopefully they climb. Rainy and gloomy in Detroit...actually looks like the forecast all week.

Learning a valuable lesson this week about agreeing to a pre plan 5 days out.
Toooooo far out!
I didn't think it would have the effect that it has.....planned 5 days out but still available for dispatch in the mean time for runs of a length normal for a C unit. but, a dispatcher told me today it does change how your truck is viewed and what they can do with you system wise. Like I said....lesson learned. I like pre plans.....a lot....but need to view them a little different is all. Now, where is that shot glass.......

For me, I mostly do a preplanned in MI "close to the yard" a long run is available the next day ect and I'm the only long haul available. I stay and do locals/shorty's. A few times I can think off hand outside of the yard that I've been preplanned and its work 1 or 2 times I think. Like the dispatcher said, it changes the way they look at the truck. They only way to know is to ask or try it.

Oh I'm with you on preplanned loads. I've love them also!

Sooo, before I delivered the second one I got preplanned for another one. Done with that now and at home for some much needed rest. This begins to feel too much like work lately. Don't know if it is good or bad. Probably good after the slower July I had.
