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?

Delaware, Ohio

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!

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! 🙂

Almost Ohio!

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!
