Thanks everyone.

Two hours in and slow going. Ignoring the GPS telling me the road is closed. Lol

It is tiring being on high alert every second though. Just hit PA, maybe it’s a little better here.

508 miles today. Not bad for an amateur. Was crappy roads from Buffalo to Just past Cleveland.

Must have been bad by Toledo, saw about a dozen crashed semis. One looked like someone picked it up with a crane and set it across the ditch. No tracks and no damage I saw but the ditch was at least 4 feet deep and 5 feet wide.

I heard 80/90 tollway thru Indiana had a bunch of wrecks up and down it. But that was a day and a half ago. What route are you taking thru Indiana? Most of the side roads in Indiana are still all jacked up. If you don’t want to take the tollway thru, US-20 is your best bet. I would still take the tollway in Ohio though. After the toll plaza before you cross into Indiana is an exit. Just head north on that road and us-20 is the first intersection.

I spent the night in Michigan City, IN

I’m headed to the Milwaukee bus station as soon as I can get packed up to rescue a stranded student. I think he is an experienced driver that was supposed to get in yesterday.

Congrats, I graduated from college in March; when should I start applying for paid training? I am thinking in the next few weeks.

Don’t forget to have Jo add $50 to your check. That is the going rate for ferrying another driver, lol.

LOL. They are paying for the car, so I’ll suck it up.

Checked into the bunkhouse.

They gave me the option of renting a car so I did. Good thing since buses were banned in PA. And they would have had another driver stranded in Milwaukee. As it was he spent 19 hours in the bus station
