Title: Almost home 

Big Rig Travels broadcast day started at 9:52 EDT near West Unity, Ohio. 

10:26 EDT  Welcome to Indiana, near Angola, IN on US 20 just before crossing under I-80/I-90. 

10:45 EDT stopped at Loves ❤️for recheck of mass/weight as BRS had adjusted the tandems since yesterdays mass/ weight check. BRS had a lottery story while we waited to access the Cat 🐱 Scale. Yes, we have plenty of capacity for fuel ⛽️ Blue Comet also fresh coffee ☕️. 

While waiting for the delivery appointment, we passed time at Kwik trip truck stop eight miles from receiver. BRS chatted with BRT road crew while we waited.  Road crew meet up occurred as Bucky Billy Badger 🦡 stopped to meet Steve. Appropriate name for one living in Wisconsin.

10:48 CDT broadcast resumes after delivery was completed. We stop at nearest KwikTrip for coffee then some backroads and I-90 back to Belvidere Illinois

Clocks 2:44 hours on 11 hr, 1:17 hours on 14 hr, 54:07 hours on 70 hr which are not important now that we have arrived at home and going into off time. Do not know when we will return watch website status bar for update.

    Cant leave without hats off==no make that caps off==Steve wears cap==to Ric Rac and glad my Badger comment was properly reported lol

  3. Enjoy your time off Big Rig Steve. This was a rough month or so since your last time off as far as available freight. Hopefully
    after a few days off you will be able to put the hammer down!

  4. Enjoy your time off. I hope you go West next season.

  5. And just to quote Horace Greely==Go West Young Man===but that will be contingent if Steve can actually qualify as==Young Man!!! So which direction will he pursue when trip resumes?? Stay tuned for next chapter in this serial@!!

  6. hi steve and road crew I hope you guys enjoy your time off to and I will see you guys in a few days and I will talk to you guys after time off to see ya soon to

  7. I hope Steve enjoys his vacation. But it will be good to get back on the road again !

  8. Hey Steve, you mention at the end of this video that the road you parked on is lit up and you couldn’t remember it being lit up before. I checked the end of the video from 2/1/23 when you pulled into the Speedway at night to end a trip and the road in back of the Speedway was all lit up then, just saying. Have a good couple of days off. After this trip you deserve it.

    1. Ok, good to know. Maybe I’m getting older quicker than I thought
