What a long... strange trip it's been

I have skipped ahead a bit, mostly because since Tuesday when we left the yard, we have been haulin’ ass.  Traveling all around California, making pick-ups and deliveries.  I met some very interesting shippers and some really rude ones.  I guess it’s like anything else, there’s different folks everywhere.

I choose to blog today because of a strange confluence of events  that is about to befall us.  We were originally scheduled to take a load from southern California to Idaho.  We were pumped about it that’s alot of miles and a good, long trip.  Of course, such was not to be, and as soon as we had planned the trip, the load was taken away from us.  It’s a good thing too, since we later found out that the snow was falling and there 10 hour delays on the roads.  Pure chance, or beginner’s luck?

The upshot of it all was, out next load we a hellish nightmare.  We had to go all the way to Las Vegas, and then to Phoenix.  A real hell trip :)  So, with mopey faces and a few tears, we headed for the city of lights.  Coming in the I15 from California at night is a sight to behold.  Gorgeous!  Of course, we didn’t have alot of time to see the sights, but we did get a great breakfast (Steak and eggs, $5.99) and got our sleep in.  Then it was time to load up and head for the warmer climates.

It may be a bit before I blog this again, we have loads coming up back to back, and sleep will be precious!  See ya soon!
