A drive that should have taken about 6 hours took about 10 hours. Thank you snow in the South. I drove less than 400 miles today and it felt like 600. So much bumper to bumper traffic. I'm stopped for the night, going to bed and getting an early start. My pick up in the morning is an hour away. I'm giving myself 3 hours. Happy Trucking. Gotta love this job.

That's rough. They don't have a clue how to deal with snow down there. Panic rules.

rofl-3.gif That's funny.

Actually Patrick mentioned a popcorn emoji the other day and that got me to looking for one earlier. Maybe we need more stuff like that?

Or Heaven forbid a "like" button?

I feel your pain. Drove through snow for five hours this morning coming through Mississippi on my way to El Paso. Most of it was spent doing 30-40 behind panicked southerners lol

And you made it! Glad you’re safe.

Here is a pick from I-40 in NC. I'm on the Eastbound side looking at the Westbound side. The trucks you see on the Westbound side are parked in the rest area.

I'm in Greensboro, NC If all goes well, heading to Jim Palmer or Wil-Trans next week.

Wil-Trans:

Darrel Wilson bought his first tractor in 1980 at age 20, but, being too young to meet OTR age requirements, he leased the truck out and hired a driver.

Through growth and acquisition, Wil-Trans now employs over 200 drivers, and has a long-standing partnership with Prime, Inc. to haul their refrigerated freight. The family of businesses also includes Jim Palmer Trucking and O & S Trucking.
