This Wee'ks Travels, And Last Weeks Settlement (Week #3)

Welcome fellow Road Warriors! Its time for this weeks wrap-up and settlement.
As for this week's travels, I started Monday morning in Darlington, SC. Remember I had to stay the weekend there because I was late getting to my reload destination due to truck repairs, and bad weather.
I got my load on Monday morning and headed to Shelbyville, IN.
I unloaded in Shelbyville, IN on Tuesday morning, then reloaded in Terre Haute, IN and headed to Ringgold, LA. While coming across I40 in eastern AR I managed to do some damage to an airbag(imagine that), on my right steer axle. It did not blow out completely, and was still quite drivable, so I proceeded on to LA with only a slight lean.
After I unloaded at Ringgold, LA I was dispatched to Emerson, AR to pick up a load of veneer to deliver to Natchitoches, LA the next day(Thursday).
I made my delivery on Thursday morning and then headed over to Zwolle, LA to pick up another load of veneer for Natchitoches, LA. On my way to Zwolle, I noticed that the truck was riding a little rougher and leaning a little more to the right.
After unloading in Natchitoches, I called the shop in Woodworth, LA and informed them that I was going to have to bring the truck in to replace the airbag. While there I asked them to go ahead and perform a complete service on the truck.
When I got to the shop they informed me that they would have to order the airbag, and that it would not be there until the next day. With that, I grabbed my dirty clothes and bed sheets, called my beautiful wife to come get me, and headed to the house for a three day weekend.
I'll start out fresh on Monday.
Week #3 settlement is as follows, but keep in mind that I was in the shop for 2.5 days and I was unable to run through the weekend:
LOAD #1 Chopin, LA to Lewisville, AR
Total miles= 188
Gross = $388.54 (Avg $2.06 per hub mile)

LOAD #2 Emerson, AR to Buckhannon, WV
Total Miles = 1034
Gross = $2112.92 (Avg $2.04 per hub mile)

Load #3 Buckhannon, WV to Darlington, SC
Total Miles = 426
Gross = $746.06 (Avg $1.75 per hub mile)

Total miles for the week = 1648
Total Gross for the week = $3247.52
Total Avg Pay Per Mile for the week = $1.97

God Bless!!
