Catch up time!
I spent a total of about five minutes unloading in Bay Minette, AL. That made this truck driver very happy.
My next load was in Montgomery, AL where I spent the night and loaded first thing in the morning. I had a little trouble finding the place because I had bad directions and a bad address. Even my gps got an attitude with me before it was all said and done.
Anyway, I got loaded and headed for Grand Prairie, TX where I unloaded. Then I jumped over to Ft Worth to grab a load going to our drop yard in Coushatta, LA where I dropped that trailer and grabbed an empty one to drop at Smurfit Stone in Hodge, LA. From there I hooked to a preloaded trailer and I'm off to Chesterfield, MO. TTYL

Helllloooo truckers!
It has been one heck of a week so I'm gonna just take a minute to get this blog caught up.
In my last post I was heading to Pikesville, KY to pick up an empty trailer. (By the way, Pikesville should be added to your bucket list.) I took that trailer to one of our customers in Cambridge, OH and left it there, then bobtailed to Lancaster, OH for a load going to Bellvue, OH. here is where things got a little disheartening.
Due to me not being able to make it to my next shipper before they left for the weekend, I ended up sitting in a truck stop near Columbus until noon Sunday. It happens:(
Sunday I loaded up near Columbus with a load of cereal going to Rome, NY.
Got that off Monday morning and headed for Ticonderoga, NY. (I think that Ticonderoga is an old Indian word for "beautiful country")
From there to St Louis where I picked up a load of beer that needed to be in Memphis.
In Memphis I loaded a FedEx load bound for Kenner, LA. From Kenner to Natchez, MS to pick up a load to leave at our Shreveport, LA location, which is where I'm heading to today.
When I'm done with that I'll pick up a preloaded trailer in Mansfield, LA, and go home with it for the weekend.

Ok, so the last time I checked in I was in Garland, TX about to unload. Well now I'm sitting just outside of Chicago. Let me fill in the blanks.
After unloading in Garland I scooted on over to Dallas and picked up a load going to Shreveport, LA. From there I jumped down to Mansfield, LA, picked up a preloaded trailer and made it home before I ran out of hours for the day.
Monday I delivered that load in Lafayette, LA, then deadheaded to Natchez, MS for a load going back to Mansfield, LA. Reloaded there for a load to Des Plaines, IL. Dropped that load now I am bobtailing to Pikesville, KY to grab an empty and find a load.
I'll catch you up from there later!

I unloaded yesterday morning at the FedEx terminal in the Memphis International Airport. I grabbed an empty trailer there and picked up a load just a couple of blocks down the street and brought it to our yard behind the Petro Truck Stop in West Memphis, AR. I grabbed another empty from there and dis a drop and hook at Kellogg's in Memphis, took my ten hour break, got up at 3am and i'm headed to Garland, TX to unload at 3pm today. I have a preplan ready for my next load. I'll fill you in later on that load.

Today marks the beginning of my forth week with Tango Transport and things are going great. I actually sent an email to my recruiter today thanking her for all she has done to help get hired. Everything is exactly what she said it would be.

As for my dispatch, I unloaded this morning in Grand Prairie, TX, reloaded in Waxahatchie, TX, going to Hodge, LA. I'll let you know where to from there!

My next load is a preloaded trailer in Greenwood, LA going to Grand Prairie, TX. I only waited about 15 minutes for load. It's showing a 10am appointment for tomorrow, but I'm hoping I can drop today and keep rolling!

I had a great three days at home with my girls. Didn't do much but chill at home. I got back in the truck Friday evening, picked up a loaded trailer in Coushatta, LA and took it to Carrolton, TX. Unloaded it Saturday morning then deadheaded to San Antonio for a drop and hook back to Coushatta. I'll check back in later to let you know where I'm heading next!
