Lol, I’m at Cargill. I have a dental appt in the morning and was at the yard and they asked if I would make a quick run up here from st louis and grab this load. I’d come over there but would wreck 3 hrs of my break already.

Pj is roughly 20 minutes from my house. And Grumpy I pass that TA every morning was just there this morning in fact looking at what people buy these days. What time are you going to be there till typically I roll through about 330ish sometimes earlier sometimes later.

Don’t want to hit Chicago too early.

Understood. Someday I’ll end up in the same truck stop with some of you guys and finally meet you. Lol

I may get to meet a Patrick at the terminal this week.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

No such thing as too early in Chicago haha. 5:40 will be prime rush hour. And don't forget this freezing rain is supposed to go through the night. Tomorrow should be fun.

I'll tell you what though I'm still going to stop by there tomorrow for coffee. I'll "check in" when I roll through. I'll be in a blue Pete hauling a blue Dean's milk trailer. If you're up swing on by. smile.gif

Good time to go through Chi-Raq is from 0001 to 0430.

I pass by there everyday but never stop because it is always so busy.

If you can get up earlier you should try to be through Chicago by 5:30 that's is when traffic starts. If not and you are headed north 294 is your best bet.

Unfortunately if I ever meet anyone I'll have to bang on their sleeper at 3 or 4 am lol

I’m usually up at that time... I am getting up now and logging on in 25 minutes to get outta here. I’m on a tight schedule only because of my dr appt. Otherwise it would be easier. I rarely get tight times, usually it’s the other way around, too much time by about 24 hours. That is pretty cool Brian. Grumpy one day we’re going to get that cup for sure. I met Daniel B and Jolie in Joliet a few years ago and it was very cool. I even have pics some place.
