      Back in service today and got a load after 3 hours picking up 34 miles from my house. I'm now in Commerce Georgia ready to roll again tomorrow.

      I use a little window screen on my intake side, makes it easier to clean. Some have tried dryer sheets, but those can overheat as well.

      The intake was a lot more gunked up then I expected. Enough that I could scrap it off with my fingers. I cleaned it at the start of winter, definitely wasn't expecting that much already. My first thought was why is there is no screen. Might have to try adding one like you suggested.

      Seems to be working alright now, hopefully that was the only issue.

      I was about to go shopping for green pushpins but Tim got creative and came up with a plan. I do need to learn what number of days on the app will be most relevant to me. The 14 day for Laredo and area looked good....yet as soon as I arrived the market dried up. But it sure is nice to have the info easily at hand.

      Sure enjoyed the weather and when I combine the down and back together (always do for longer runs) the pay was the best I had ever made for a TX loop.

      Prime example of a newbie “hanging tight” after he ask dispatch should he relocate.

      Well another year of Taxes are in the books. I have to admit I was a tad bit concerned going into this years taxes, as I made considerably more money then in prior years. But in the end, higher income can also bring along higher deductions. So it all worked out. Heck, I didn't even end up with my normal Tax hair this year :rolleyes:

      I have a pickup at 3AM in Terre Haute. Which is the exact instant Daylight Saving Time starts. The 3AM time is Eastern Time, which is 2AM Central Time, but 2AM won't exist tomorrow. I'm freakin' out.

      Well, crap. I forgot about that. There goes my plan of trying to adjust my messed up sleep cycle tonight.
      But I also thought that today was going to be Monday. I guess I'm eager to get back to work :rolleyes:
