Howdy and Happy Independence Day! I am late getting this out, but for the holiday, if you buy either of the American Spirit Hats from our store, and then add the Hat Pin to your cart, you get the hat pin free! You MUST enter coupon code JULY4HAT at checkout. Also, check out the 7 NEW items that are now in the store! A Royal Blue tumbler, Aunt J frog backpack buddy, iron on patch, bandanas/facemasks, BigRig Stress Squish Truck, and water bottle! More secret surprises coming to the store in August or September!
Meanwhile on the homefront, it is dang hot and humid. Did some lawn mowing, website store updates, and bum around the house. Gotta make the most of my very few days off!
Howdy and welcome to the Minneapolis area of Minnesota. We made our delivery and are in place and ready to show up to our next shipper about 13 hours early and with any luck, they will load us so we can get on our way. Good rips so far and going by the trip journal for June, we have had our busiest month thus far! Make sure to watch the status bar to know when we get to a door and when we are loaded so you will know when to start watching for the broadcast to start!
Ok, update….. comments are now closed on this post. Somehow, I make a post about our trips and what is going on and I come back to approve comments and find many arguments back and forth about politics. Friendly reminder, BigRigTravels is free from any political talk. Yes, each person has their own views but this isn’t the place for name calling, foul language, etc. There are countless other places on the internet to argue until everyone turns blue in the face……. do it there…..not here.
Good Friday afternoon. Guess we will go ahead and quit for the day. We only have 100 miles to go to delivery and we can’t arrive before 630pm local time. Guess we better leave some driving for tomorrow. Relax awhile, and we will get rolling again Saturday afternoon about 430pm.
Howdy and good evening. A little update for ya tonight. We have finished our delivery in McDonough, Georgia and have been given a space in a far corner to hide until they call us for a door in the morning. We actually load at the same building in the morning as we just unloaded tonight. Nice to not worry about finding parking this late! I’ll update our trip while we are in the door being loaded.
Morning Road Crew! We are kinda dragging our feet a bit before hitting the highway so that we don’t run past our 14 hour clock during tonight’s delivery in Georgia.
Last night, just as we were finishing up our broadcast with a FAQ session and spending time with you, another LIVE broadcast on YouTube was just starting. That broadcast was “Nick From Home”, a geologist from Central Washington University that has been teaching geology online for anyone that cares to join in. Nick Zentner focuses his classes around the State of Washington, and just last week spent time talking about the Vantage area. As you know, our website logo bridge is the Vantage bridge – so BigRigTravels sent him a little something! Watch the video below to see what it was and his shoutout to BigRigTravels. His live broadcasts garner about 950+ simultaneous viewers. You can check out his videos and broadcasts as well as his website. Many thanks for the mention Nick! Our shoutout starts at 7:40. (Dang editor wouldn’t let me start from correct timestamp)
Good evening to everyone. Hopefully your Monday was a good one:)
We have our next TWO trips lined up. Since we do gain back abut 10 hours or so everyday the next few days, we are able to get back to driving – starting with a live loading appointment of 6am Tuesday morning. After we get loaded, we will begin broadcasting as we roll to our delivery. Then once the delivery is completed, we will start our second, longer trip.
Good 3am early morning to ya. Welcome to the first day of summer! We are unloading at our delivery in Cheyenne, Wyoming. We do have our next trip set up but doesn’t load up until 10pm tonight. 42 degrees when we woke up at 1am this morning….and just last week Wyoming had 8 inches of snow!!
We arrived at the shipper early since our appointment is not until tonight at 1030pm. They no longer allow drivers to drop empty trailers until their load is actually ready. So, enjoy your Saturday and we will start broadcasting when we depart the shipper.
