Hello all parked in for the night in dodge city Alabama. My first day solo went pretty decent a few hiccups but nothing bad. Took me about an hour to find an empty trailer that was put in the loaded spot and then kept getting delayed by traffic which was out of my control. Ran 475 miles today and only have 52 to go until my drop tomorrow at 1000. Thanks for reading stay safe

Good job sir! Feels good when things go as planned. Did you happen to be traveling down 85 today?

Glad it went pretty smooth. I'm about to go solo and I'm more nervous then a prostitute at a nun convention!

That’s the truck stop with the most parking spots east of the Rocky Mountains, so don’t get all spoiled and think they’re all that easy. Congratulations on a successful first day without the training wheels. Remember: The Only Easy Day Was Yesterday.good-luck.gif

Isn't that a SEAL saying?
