Stuck at Arrowhead TS again. Can't get over Cabbage on my way to Boisie. 84 is currently backed up to exit 216 EB. Its a good thing I'm not the casino type, or I would have lost all of the money I'm not making at the Wildhorse Casino by now.

I feel for ya, I'm in Denver now but upon leaving here I have to go to Greeley which is one of the places dispatch warned about this morning.

You know by now that Donner doesn't cooperate with anybody, except it self. So seeing my next load is going to Oakland,I wonder if I'll get routed through Southern California or over Donner. I asked this morning. I got,"No information at this time". But seeing I haven't unloaded my load I have, I should wait and see what happens to this load.

Winter has been over now for weeks down here in GA. It got down to the 20s when that polar vortex thing came through but not one snowflake has come down.

I've been watching the Oregon DOT website all morning. Finally Cabbage open with no restrictions. Logged on duty at 1200, pre trip, pull out of the TS, over the bridge to the on ramp, snowplow pulls across on ramp, closes gates!!!!! Eff me I'm thinkin', did I read something wrong? Detour to parking area, go back to website. ALERT....I 84 closed due to accident at 1218. So here I sit again........with my 14 hour clock ticking away. This is a situation where the 14 hour rule can really screw you over. Hopefully it is a dumb ass 4 wheeler and they can get him out of the way and re open

I don't hold a grudge against Oregon. I want to come back in the spring or summer and spend a few days. You can give me some "touristy" ideas.smile.gif
