They're going to take the load late, so I'm be getting live unloaded. I'll post again if I make it to the OC, like 181 miles away currently. Waiting to fuel.

Jamie, I’m still stuck here for a bunk heater replacement. If my tractor keeps breaking, I may never leave. So far it’s been the starter then the air dryer then the surge tank and now the bunk heater. And the Henway has to be recalibrated too.

That's terrible... Well I finally made it to the customer, waiting to get unloaded. She said it might be awhile with them going on lunch and what not.

I'm at the Green Bay OC now, taking my 10 hour break. Dropping this empty and parking bobtail.

Bobtail:

"Bobtailing" means you are driving a tractor without a trailer attached.

I can't sit by and let a good joke go to waste: What's a henway, Bruce?

Let me know if you're still here, I'll be up for another few hours.

Maybe another time, I might be here until the morning as the driver dropping my relay off changed his ETA from 7pm until 9am tomorrow.

Recently I found my belt starting to shred during a post trip inspection and got it replaced before it caused any trouble.

But pieces of that belt still managed to shred off and get themselves wrapped around the damndest places.

A month later and I'm still finding small pieces of what look like very very fine string wrapped around little parts. They're little bits off shredded belt that found their way into obscure places.
