The next day, after dropping outside Boise, my dispatcher recommended moving to Salt Lake City. I got a load there, the same day I moved, dropping in Pensacola, FL. I had 4 days to get there, so I stopped by home in St. Louis for a day to see the family. I dropped yesterday in Pensacola, and now I'm waiting between Montgomery and Mobile for my next load.
Lesson learned.
Ah well, at least you got to stop off at home.

Well I've been procrastinating. That was the pic AFTER the oven cleaner...
Oh wow! I retired at the end of February party because of business and rates going south. The determining factor was I got a good offer on the Sprinter and rather than new plates and more insurance, I sold it to the mechanic who kept it on the road so long. It was running great at the time and had 665,000 miles on it. It also a rust bucket.

Maybe an idea for a new Eagles song:

Welcome to the truckstop Detroiter
Expeditors arrive alive
With great hopes to thrive
But instead only to loiter
