Wild day so far!

We are taking a 2 hour nap right now since we did a split sleeper break last night which allowed us to get an earlier start. We will continue on at 4pm central time and get a few more miles in before shutting down for the day. In Tennessee we were literally a few vehicles behind the shutdown on Interstate 24 which was closed due to a shooter and car jacking. Tons of police activity and several vehicles were shot at. They closed the highway way behind us but let us roll out of the area so we wouldn’t be targeted. You can Google for the latest information. Then of course all the rain as we rolled through Nashville which caused instant flooding and lane closures.

  1. Swing low, sweet chariot
    Coming for to carry me home
    Swing low, sweet chariot
    Coming for to carry me home

    I looked over Jordan and what did I see
    Coming for to carry me home
    A band of angels coming after me
    Coming for to carry me home

    Swing low, sweet chariot
    Coming for to carry me home
    Swing low, sweet chariot
    Coming for to carry me home

    I’m sometimes up and sometimes down
    And sometimes I feel alone
    But I know my soul is Heavenly bound
    One day Jesus is going to carry me home

    Swing low, sweet chariot
    Coming for to carry me home
    Swing low, sweet chariot
    Coming for to carry me home

    Well if you get there before I do
    Just make yourself at home
    But tell all my friends I’m coming too
    And tell them that it won’t be long

    Swing low, sweet chariot
    Coming for to carry me home
    Swing low, sweet chariot
    Coming for to carry me home

    Swing low, sweet chariot
    Coming for to carry me home
    Swing low, sweet chariot
    Coming for to carry me home

  2. Steve, is it time for you’re off time yet? I’ve lost track of you when you came back from your last time off. Thanks…

  3. Be careful outhere, Steve. You do not want to get mixed up in any BLM or ANTIFA type blockade because these people will hurt you and possibly kill you especially if they know you are into Christianity.

    Please be careful and take alternate routes if you can to avoid it or just shutdown when you are safely away from it. I think you should purchase some mace or have some kind of self defense weapon with you just in case. These people are domestic terrorists and should be taken seriously and avoided at all costs.

  4. Josh Turner has a great deep voice, and he’s a fellow South Carolinian. 🙂 Scary day on the roads down in TN for sure. Makes me look forward to the city that chariot will someday carry us home to. Safe travels and Lord bless.

  5. Steve, are you going to update the trip journal? Looks like the last update was the end of July! I miss that feature on the website.

  6. RE: TN I-24 Exit 97 from newspaper account:

    Carjacking incident
    UPDATE 1:50 p.m.: Shooter is still at large. At least four people injured, one dead.
    UPDATE: Alleged shooter is currently at large. He is a black male and is considered armed and dangerous. He is driving a black Toyota Camry.
    The incident started with a black Charger, with a Missouri license plate traveling on the interstate. The vehicle had four occupants. They were in an argument and sideswiped a vehicle. Took the vehicle down in a grassy area. The driver has shot three people in the vehicle. One is deceased, two injured. The driver then stole the vehicle that was sideswiped and taken down. The occupants of that vehicle aren’t injured but are traumatized. The carjacker then ditched the car, going eastbound on 24, crossed the interstate, and carjacked another vehicle. He is at large, armed, and dangerous, according to Billy Butler with Coffee County Sheriff’s Department.

    UPDATE I-24 Shooting and More
    SEP 13, 2020 AT 01:56 PM BY WGNS
    (MARION COUNTY) THP confronted the man believed to be the Sunday morning shooter. Dangelo Dorsey shot himself as troopers approached him on I-24 at mile marker 124 in Marion County. He was pronounced deceased.
    Reportedly after the Sunday morning shootings and carjacking in the Manchester area, Dorsey allegedly took two people hostages from Smartt Station in Warren County.
    He allegedly shot and killed the male hostage and dumped his body in Coffee County near Bonnaroo property.
    The wife of that hostage, who was also taken by Dorsey, is alive and is currently at a hospital.
    Below is the original story from Sunday morning
    (COFFEE COUNTY) One person is dead and two are injured after a carjacking and shooting around 9:30AM Sunday morning on I-24 near the Rutherford County line (traveling toward Nashville).
    News partners at WMSR in Manchester report that four black males traveling in a black Dodge Charger evidently got into an argument and one of them pulled a gun and allegedly shot another person inside the vehicle. That person was pronounced deceased at the scene.
    Coffee County Sheriff Billy Butler said from the appearance inside the vehicle, it appears that more than one weapon was used, and two others were shot,. One was rushed by ambulance to a nearby hospital and another transported by LifeFlight helicopter.
    Reports indicate that while the altercation was in progress, the Dodge Charger sideswiped another vehicle driven by a Manchester resident with his family, and both vehicles ran off the road.
    The fourth person in the Charger escaped without injury and ran across the interstate where he reportedly carjacked a black Toyota Camry. During that incident an elderly woman was shot in the hand, and a passing truck driver who stopped to help–was shot in the neck. Both are being treated at the hospital.
    The black Toyota Camry driven by the shooting suspect is thought to have left the interstate at exit 97 (Beechgrove, TN).
    NewsRadio WGNS will keep you informed.

  8. Looks like Steve is headed back to the same shipper in Chicago that has such a small entrance. I hope it is not the same place, but sure looks like it. Good luck, Steve.

    1. Well, I wouldn’t be surprised if he does go back there. The customer knows he’s a safe driver and one of the few that can navigate their street safely so I could see them telling the planners they want Steve to take the load.

  9. HOWDY STEVE
