Thanks! I absolutely love i80 in NE and WY during good weather, very minimum traffic. Instead of taking two 10 hour breaks, I'll only need this one to make my delivery and hopefully get preplanned before Christmas.

Jamie,

Great to hear things are going well at Crete.

What is your mileage total for December so far?

Jamie,

I'm actually not sure off the top of my head, but its around 10,000 miles. been a very busy month!

Drove 622 miles today, I was worried I was going to be seating over Christmas like last year but shortly after delivering my load and getting to my parking location, I was doing my post trip when they gave me a load assignment to deadhead 555 miles to pickup a load only going 450 miles, so it has more deadhead miles than loaded.

But this will put me around 3300 miles for the week.

Deadhead:

To drive with an empty trailer. After delivering your load you will deadhead to a shipper to pick up your next load.

Change of plans due to icy and snowy conditions along my route to Flagstaff, AZ, I decided to stay parked until the morning. No need to risk anything tonight since my route is pretty bad in areas.

Well I'm already preplanned as well nearly two days ahead of time, even with the delays from the weather.
