I'm at the Pilot in Victorville. My mentor just got picked up and is going home for the day. So I will try and do laundry here and do something. We can't deliver until tomorrow night.

Eat, shower, laundry, sleep as much as possible. big scott laughs at me cause i constantly do laundry. But some weeks spend more breaks at customers than at truck stops. i once drove 4 days in and out of Iowa looking for a truck stop with laundry. And my cell got no data or reception. I decided Iowans smell cause they cant do laundry and have no friends becasue of it. therefore they dont need cells and data.

i apologize to Iowans who can wash their clothes.

I should have checked this an hour ago. I had to drop something off at my sister's place in Hesperia, I could have stopped by for some coffee. I'm already back home in OC.

When I was a student, my trainer split a few times. I would take advantage of the opportunity to go to a movie, go to a restaurant, do laundry, shower, take a walk, get some sleep, etc. Nice to have a break.

Be careful out there. That area used to be known as "Victimville". I have no idea if that is still the case.

Victorville is still terrible when it comes to crime, both property and violent. Hesperia, right next door, is fine though. I actually thought the Pilot was in Hesperia; it's way south of the worst parts of Victorville, from my understanding.

Well good morning TT people! Well I got a shower, laundry done, clean up the truck a bit watched "The Great Wall " went to eat at the restaurant called the Outpost Cafe came back to my luxurious accommodations and went to bed. Woke up a few minutes ago and of course we still can't deliver 'til tonight. Trying to remember all the macros.

CK I would have bought u that coffee.

PackRat It is pretty harmless here at the Truck Stop. There are enough truckers here to have a full football game. Seems many that I talked to yesterday can't deliver until tonight. One has been sitting here since midnight Sunday and delivers 5pm. Anyway this place seems harmless.

Rainy I like having my clothes clean and a shower to make ya feel refreshed. So Big Scott nothing wrong in all that.

Grumpy How could I get into trouble at a Truck Stop sitting in the truck.

I do have a question for Rainy, I think you said you haul refers? Anyway, this last one we picked up is the loudest we've had and it runs and then shuts down then in a little while starts up again. Is this normal?

Yes I have the house to myself. At first after he left, I sat in the driver's seat and just thought now what do I do. I knew I was going to do laundry, take a shower and clean. But then what? Anyway, too much thinking. Not that we talk all that much anyway.
