How about that! Was awesome to finally meet an internet buddy face-to-face. Pete's going to be a rock star at this gig, you all watch and see.

Now I need to meet up with more of the fine folks on here.

You will also notice another super sleeper rig behind us at the fuel island. I swear it's some kind of secret conspiracy! Every time I look closely, I see one.

Brian, I really have no idea on week 3 at Knight. I go wherever they send me. Truthfully, I try hard to avoid Indiana because the Interstate road conditions suck! I would guess I'm through there at least a few times each month, though.

Not much of an answer, but it could be most anytime. I update that GPS Tracker each day and scan the maps to see who's close by. Especially Rainy!

Interstate:

Commercial trade, business, movement of goods or money, or transportation from one state to another, regulated by the Federal Department Of Transportation (DOT).

Please do, that is one less truck I am stuck in traffic with. Sometime I swear every truck in the nation is there with me enjoying Indiana's beautifully maintained roads.

Between that stretch of 294 and 80/94 not sure which side is worse. Seems all the way from the state line to o'hare something is being torn up.

Before you knock Indiana I will say this they've got some great rest areas for truckers. I guess that's the least they could do...

The rest areas are nice indeed, however they need to have chiropractic treatment available 24/7.
