Daily Summary for 9/14/2023

Big Rig Steve officially done broadcasting for the day at around 18:43 CDT safely arriving near Franklin, IN at the receiver, waiting for 1:30 CDT appointment for a live unload.

Title: Proved the planners wrong

Big Rig Travels broadcast day began at 8:13 CDT at the Love’s near Clive, IA. Some glitches with the broadcast, it was restarted at 8:37 CDT. Onto I-80 continuing our trip through the IA heartland.

11:31 CDT crossed the Mississippi into Illinois. Soon after, we joined I-74, a road that BRS has not travelled in quite awhile.

12:20 CDT stopped at the Love’s in Knoxville, IL for coffee. A first time visit to this particular Love’s. Had a short visit from two Road Crew viewers.

15:30 CDT time for a mandatory 30 minute break at Covington, Indiana rest stop.

18:30 CDT moved onto I-65 in Indianapolis, then stream was ended as BRS neared his destination to await his 1:30 appointment. Good to note that per website, maybe the unloading was already happening! BRS pleased to be arriving more than six hours early for appointment, when planners a couple days ago, thought he’d be four hours late. BRS knows his stuff, and knew he had the time to get there.

Numbers : 0 mile 0 km to the receiver, we covered about 505 miles 813 km rolled out of Iowa, through Illinois and into Indiana.

Clocks :  started the day with 38:48 hours on 70 hr, do not gain back  hours tomorrow morning. Clock still running when broadcast day ended.

BRS reports a 10:30 CDT live load in the morning.

Another good day for Big Rig Travels.

  1. Nicely done trip Steve! The last 3 trips were all nice ones to pile on some miles.
