    I sat in Reno for 4 or 5 days and just wore Fuddruckers out. The elk burger is pretty tasty.
    It was suggested I move to El Paso, which I agreed to do, but stopped in Vegas for the night, then Phoenix for a day or so to see what would happen. I got a load from Calexico to Romulus (with a transit time of 5 days, which was kewl).

    Yes. They were in for two days shooting a pretty cool video and we had the video company for a day of footage. We are allowed to share or release the first video on Monday.

    Well this kind of sucked...

    1st bid of the day on a nice run, after 30mins or so got a different confirmed run... going to Concentra

    Wasn't too upset, been a couple of years since I got picked.

    Concentra backed up 3 hrs

    1 hr into my wait at concentra surprise call, we got that load, how's the drug test going? Errrrr, not good.

    After +3 hours, back at the J in Altoona, Iowa.

    Just wondering, could you take the load and have that done on the way or after the delivery?

    Drug test are time sensitive, at least for getting there once the process starts

    Was a 1k mile trip, would have been nice if they could of postponed it. But kind of defeats the purpose of a random that way, shipper just took too long to confirm and messed things up. Oh well, there will always be another load

    Yeah, just hate to miss a load, especially one like that. Thought might kill two birds with one stone.

    Well I'm on my way and will get to my destination at a good time.

    Finally got loaded this morning, three hours after my pickup time. Making good time. Still have some left in the tank before pulling over and taking a nap tonight.

    Empty in Syracuse NY.

    Finally no bee looking things bombarding me, not sure what they are but that's what they look like. Every time I stopped they would swarm the van.

    They 1st showed up in Hudson, IN. Continued throughout Iowa.
    Pesky little things.
