Freight still sucks
I’ve had a moderately entertaining week…NOT!
I’ve been sitting 12 hours or so after every load waiting to get something else. I will say that the loads have been generally decent when I do get them. I even had a reasonable (2800 mile) week last week. The only thing is, when freight was good, that would have been 3500+ miles. At least my truck is paid for.
It’s been wild weather this week. It was 15 below zero at the house when I left. I delivered a load in San Benito, TX, and it was 85 degrees. I have to look at my thermometer before I get out of the truck. What other job lets you go from blizzard to summer in 24 hours? 🙂
I’m getting ready for tax time. I’ve got all of the stuff sorted out; now I just need to get it into the computer. I might take 34 hours off in the next couple of days and get it all put in. My accountant has given me an “A+” every year for having stuff so well organized — it makes her job relatively easy.
I’ve been working on writing a page about sharing the road with trucks. If you have any questions that you’d like to see answered, please leave a comment, and I’ll see about including it.
