Howdy and just a few updates and a Sunday Song…. We used up all but 6 hours of our 70 hour clock in just a week! Last weekend we had to restart in Richmond, Virginia and now we are resetting the clock in Phoenix, Arizona. We have a loading appointment at 2am Monday and then it will have to be another overnight express run I’m afraid if we want to make ontime delivery Tuesday morning! Very glad to get all the feedback about the quality of the bobbleheads! It was worth the wait to find a quality producer for our custom collector’s item!
Oh boy. Yesterday we had so many problems with multiple trips all running in the same time slots. Then the load we did get, the shipper was halfway done loading us when they started pulling it off our truck to put on another truck. Then, we were told an hour later to go back to the dock and they loaded us again with the same freight. We stayed overnight in Baltimore, Maryland and made the delivery just 15 minutes late.
Now today, we had a local 35 mile run, but when we got to the delivery they refused it because everyone goes home at 11am! They couldn’t even find us on the delivery schedule. We drove back to the droplot to leave this load exactly where we picked it up from earlier this afternoon. The new delivery appointment is set for Monday!! Nope, we won’t sit that long.
Currently, we have 7 preset trips and not a single one of them makes any sense at all. Waiting for someone somewhere to start thinking. As soon as I get a trip we can work with, we will update the website.
Remember to leave reviews about your bobblehead or other store items. Simply go to the store, click on the item you bought, scroll down to reviews section and leave your star rating and comments please. Many thanks for all the bobblehead orders! If you were charged for the free squishy stress truck offer, the price of it has now been refunded to the way you paid (Amazon, creditcard, etc)
Update! In case you missed the short broadcast, here is what we have new in the store! A limited Edition BigRigSteve Bobblehead! You can get the details below and in the store. If you purchase in the next 24 hours, before 1800 October 9th, we will include a bigrig squishy truck free of charge! IN the event you do get charged for the squishy truck, no fear, we will refund the price of it to you. The coupon doesn’t seem to be working at the moment.
HOWDY! Man, been busy with like 82 things of course, only half going as planned lol. I did promise a special broadcast for you, so we will do it tonight at 6pm Central time. We just never have enough time to do everything in just 4 days every six weeks. I haven’t even started the grill yet! See you at 6pm tonight!
Good evening from Brush, Colorado. If you haven’t noticed yetht, our trip has changed. We are now going to drop this in Denver so another driver can use it to get to his home in Utah. We also have some business stuff to do since we just hit our 14th year of driving!! Wednesday morning we will finish up the last 95 miles or so and that will be it for tomorrow. There are several things in progress but we will let you know when things get finalized.
The numbers for today are… 579.8 miles driven, 4hr10min left on 70hr clock. Gain back 8hr44min tomorrow.
Howdy and what picky some places can be! Industry standards for arrival at refrigerator trailers is 3/4. That will provide about 3 days of fuel to run the reefer unit. We arrived with 7/8 tank and were refused entry to the delivery until we got fuel and returned with a full topped off tank. Guess what? That was 15 miles each way added on for fuel then we ran into heavy traffic due to construction. We aren’t even dropping this trailer since we are a live unload. Total waste of time.
We are currently unloading at our midnight delivery in Lima, Ohio right now. Hope you enjoyed the unplanned round about tour of downtown Lima today as we got ourselves all turned around and lost! It was a pleasure to show ya the downtown areas of Chicago the last two days as well. Ready for someplace else we haven’t been in awhile?? Check out the next trip which loads Wednesday afternoon!
We are taking a 2 hour nap right now since we did a split sleeper break last night which allowed us to get an earlier start. We will continue on at 4pm central time and get a few more miles in before shutting down for the day. In Tennessee we were literally a few vehicles behind the shutdown on Interstate 24 which was closed due to a shooter and car jacking. Tons of police activity and several vehicles were shot at. They closed the highway way behind us but let us roll out of the area so we wouldn’t be targeted. You can Google for the latest information. Then of course all the rain as we rolled through Nashville which caused instant flooding and lane closures.
Quick shots of views I happen to see along my day…
