Big Rig Steve officially done for the day 18:56 EDT at service plaza near West Unity, Ohio.
Title: Finally working our way back home
Big Rig Travels broadcast day began 12:51 EDT at I-80 service plaza near Broadview Heights, Ohio.
BRS started the day with massive headache. Allergens been sky high.
We needed to do some backtracking to the shipper. Steve also advised that today was the first day of national inspections for trucks.
13:45 EDT we had Road Crew meet up in the middle of the road near the entrance to the shipper. Steve doesn’t need to flip camera as we complete the trailer drop. Our preload trailer is in the dock to be ready at 15:00 EDT.
BRS Bobtail bobs to nearby parking across from McDonald’s to wait and chat with the BRT RC YouTube chat until it’s time to pickup the trailer.
16:00 EDT rolling out of the shipper with the load eastbound I-80 Ohio turnpike.
16:24 EDT BRS witnessed a big rig in the hammer lane almost rear ended a patrol car. Ya buddy.
18:00 I-80 near Perry, OH we finally find a Cat Scale to confirm that “we are legal, whoo hoo”.
We cannot unload early, so BRS is saving some driving for tomorrow. We will play it by ear whether we can make it home to Belvidere BRT World Headquarters tomorrow night after unloading.
Numbers: 310 miles 498 km to delivery, live unload 20:00 CDT tomorrow evening, 215 miles 346 km covered today including drop and hook at shipper. Clocks 6:27 hours on the 11 hr, 7:29 hours on the 14 hr , 63:36 hours on 70 hr.
Another good day for Big Rig Travels.
Welcome to Ohio.
