We sure did alot of travel in the rain and wind today! St Louis seems to be decent right now, but they are calling for thunder-boomers and lightning.

Did anybody see the water standing in the road on Interstate 74 in Indiana? Truckers coming Eastbound kept warning us Westbounders that the water was completely covering the road under the bridge. I put on my hazards and slowed down when I saw it was pretty deep, yet truckers were flying fast in the hammer lane (where the water was deeper) and I saw one hit hard! I am sure that became  a major problem area very quickly! THEN, all that traffic jam in Indianapolis where they had 3 lanes going down to one….they said pothole repair, but when I got there it looked more like a sinkhole! There were about 5 vehicles on the shoulder all being towed away!

We are done for today. We are making good progress and I have one heck of a sinus headache! See ya’ll in the morning. Hey, at least we finally got out of the blackhole, otherwise known as Hamilton, Ohio!

We are finally on the move now. Lots of rain today. We passed this fence yesterday and it was fine. Now check out the flooding and the fence going down

Morning Road Crew!
Very rough morning here for sure. I rolled in to get our loaded trailer and watched as another driver was taking it! I threw a fit. I really can’t say too much because I know I would get myself in trouble. Our trip has changed multiple times already today and as of right now we still are waiting on folks to figure out the difference between ghost trips, double booked trips, and impossible trips.
As soon as I find out what is going on, I will let you know. Right now all I want to do is scream and smack people LOL.

Well, we are right back where we spent the night last night! The trip has changed multiple times, but think we have a keeper now. At least it is better miles after all this trouble!

It will be loaded tonight and we will leave early tomorrow morning!

Afternoon Road Crew!

Well, there is some confusion going on today with this trip! I kept waiting to make a post to be sure of where we were heading…..but I just got notice that the trip has been cancelled. Go figure, it would have been nice to know earlier! Working with the bosses to get me paid for my waiting time and getting another trip. I should know something very soon…….

Something else I am confused about – I have gotten several emails from folks that told me they enjoyed the blog but now noticed I stopped doing it!? I went back, and yup, the last blog post on 18 Wheels Across America does mention we were moving….and gave the new address? I wonder why folks think I quit doing the website?

Here is another dilemma I have been pondering about: My very first BigRigTravels jacket. It has a very nice stitching of the website on the back of it but the jacket itself is worn down. Holes all along the sleeves. What should I do with it? Just cut out the back with the design? or toss the whole jacket – design and all? Any ideas?

Good Evening! We have dropped our trailer at the shipper but they have no freight for us right now. The trip info says Denver, Colorado but that may very well change to some other place. I will let ya’ll know what I find out tomorrow. Goodnight from the local corner gas station! 🙂

Good afternoon Road Gang! We drive a few miles today to make our delivery here in Delaware, Ohio. We are currently sitting in a door to get unloaded…and I have been warned it’s gonna be awhile before we get back out! Bummer!

Very breezy here today! I am so glad we were heavy! I felt like we were fighting the Wyoming winds!

Alot of you folks are having problems with the cameras. I am not sure if it is a problem with our codes and pages, or if it is poor signal coverage the last two days, or perhaps both! I know my phones and tablet have had tons of signal problems. Even the truck computer has been telling me “No Connections” numerous times today and yesterday and that uses WiFi, Satellite, and data towers! I am sure Deputy is looking into what he can, and we will see how things go when we get out of this part of the state.

Take a break and let’s hope we get out of here within a reasonable timeframe!

Evening to ya! Well, we did some dancing around on the trip map today. Multiple ways to go and none of my dispatch directions matched, so we made our own way. 🙂 We are almost to the Ohio border and we have all day to get to our delivery tomorrow so we decided to go ahead and call it quits for today.

Tonight I will put the smiley faces back in the comments section for ya’ll, also, when you make your comments, look at the very bottom there is a check mark if you want an email notification if and when someone replies to your comment.  I still have a few tricks up my sleeve……

See ya’ll in the morning! I sure did NOT want to wake up this morning but had to. Tomorrow we don’t have to wake up until we are fully ready!

Good afternoon Road Crew! I want to say THANKS for all the kind comments and emails over the last few days that told me how important the website is to you. I am glad it does such good and provides entertainment. 🙂

We will leave shortly as soon as I can get some loose ends handled. We got our loaded, scaled out, adjusted our trailer wheels…..and we are ready!
