    Had a really good first month running solo. Now at home to get my annual VA physical and a new DOT physical. Then I'm going to build Tiffany a playhouse and deck for her 7 foot tall tube slide.

    Happy Pay Day!

    I don't need to check records on this one. Definitely by far my biggest payday ever. Able to take another chunk off my debt snowball

    Got load off this/Now yesterday morning. Got some sleep and had a couple of offers, they were no goes. Then later on the afternoon dispatch calls for one and we got it. Get to the pickup over 2 hours early and freight is ready. Got freight loaded and strap down and BAM! Yep you guess it, the load cancelled, LOL. After waiting nearly 1hr with no response from the customer I was told to pull out, Dry Run.

    DH to parents house for the weekend. Doing a little mowing and getting the van restock, watch the race and whatever else I can find or needs done while I'm here this weekend.

    Been years since I've been here.

    Hopefully won't take years to get out

    Waiting to load in El Paso.

    Was able to pick up 50 channels last night, I think 5 were in English.
    Picking up stations from Mexico?

    Ahhh logistics..

    Arrived at pick up 2hrs early due to time zone mix up,
    Scheduled to deliver 1hr before they open for same reason.

    I guess that's one way not to be late, but geez

    Empty in Eagle Pass, Texas.

    It was. Had some great meetings with congressional staff and members and a really nice fundraising event for Wreaths Across America. October is always one of the craziest travel months of my year.
