The internet disappeared!

Hey gang, just a quick update since you are probably wondering what happened. The plan was to broadcast the trip to our short delivery in Stockton, and since it was a drop, we would just flip the camera. We totally lost signal about 2 miles from the drop point. We tried to bring it back but it just wouldn’t get going.

Something very nice happened though – We took the last empty trailer that delivery location had. While we were checking out, the office lady told me I was lucky to get the empty and that just a minute ago, another driver came in looking for an empty! I thought to myself, well dang, I don’t want an empty because our next trip is actually being dropped in Lathrop Sunday morning. As we left the gate, I saw a bobtail sitting just outside the gate. I pulled over and asked if he was the one looking for an empty. He was. I gave him the empty and while we were talking, he told me he just started driving in November, and that he had been looking for an empty for over two hours. We also had the exact same dispatcher! I gave it to him and he was very relieved. Glad to help out a ew driver:)

Our next trip is posted and starts tomorrow morning. BTW, we were going to do a watch party here but still very dismal internet. I am trying to edit and upload 3 review videos but it is incredibly s l o wwww… Who stole the internet from this area???

  2. Steve since Lorna is stealing your ice cream habitually ==orso it seems==i am suspicious that since sterling ice cream was addictive now its stealing internet!! Whats next?? Steal whole truck??

  3. What would you have done with the empty once you got to Lathrop, if you didn’t realize it til you got there?! Kudos to you for helping the other driver out.

    1. the only thing I could have done was to drop it in the yard anyway.

  4. Bravo! Things happen for a reason.
    You’re the best.

  5. That’s just common courtesy for a fellow driver who really needed the empty more than you did. It’s nice when you do positive things for others because when you least expect it is when positive things happen to you when you need them to.

  7. Very nice of you Steve. Maybe that new driver will pass that on! Kindness is contagious!
