Lol Annie, well that dinner musta been good, I finally pulled in another 600+ drive (4) shutdown after just 680miles grrr.......So I didn't hit my 700+ goal, oh well 724 is my record at old job... Funny is I got a max speed of 72 here and had a max of 67 at old place....Drop this load later, then grab another Target pre-load, back to Midlothian, Tx...

Ok figured just add stuff here, not into making thread after thread lol

So, am starting to think n feel maybe this will be my dedicated lanes since, am doing same 2, each week. Cool by me either way, 1st a Target load outta Rialto, Cal. DC to Midlothian, Tx DC. Then a 280 mile deadhead north up to Jenk's, OK. for Kimberly Clark DC, load back to their Ontario, Ca. DC. Approx. 2800-2900 miles for both each week, and I'm usually 24 hours or so early at delivery points. Drop n Hook with little wasted time....

Burning up my 70 pretty much though, doing another 34 reset, here in Van Horn, Tx. Which is over about 2 am so, will jump on it and make delivery in 500 miles. Be home Thursday, 3 days off over xmas, asked to have a load out again next sunday, to start out again.

And a plus I see now, I get a few lil "extras" in pay, hourly pay while IN Cali, break times paid, and should make the $0.04 fuel/safety/productivity bonus, paid separately from regular check/dep Will see by end of the month I guess. Anything over $1,500 a week is fine by me hahaha

Deadhead:

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

LOL @ Annie Got goofy loads, picked up in Durant, OK. Big Lots 2 drops, Oddessa, first bulk of the load arrived 6:30 am took em til 12:30 finish, all hand offload no pallets lol. Called to be sure 2nd drop in Midland was gunna take me, yes, got here just before 1 pm, all by hand too ! Easier place to dock than first place.

Next load is Home Depot, outta El Paso, to Tracy Calif......ughhh Called DM cell ask WTF? no KClark, seems they cancelled all loads this week, so this is what I get, and he is on vacation til Friday. My guess is NYrs, holidays, screwed things up....

Not lookin forward to Nor Cal or close to it, need check weather updates, don't wanna see NO SNOW ! lol Weird is 9 days on load?? Really? deliver by Jan 9th hahaha AS IF.....Ain't gunna cry tho, for what I been taking home $$ each week dancing.gif dancing.gif

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Always good to hear! DARN NICE on the guaranteed pay, eh? Kimberly Clark; Int'l Paper, all wonky this week. Glad you've steered clear of the WEATHER!

Tom (& Don's) place is all Int'l Paper related, corrugated, and DANG it's been unpredictable the way the holidays fall, for sure!!! I shouldn't have 'overspent' for Christmas, dang me, haha!!!!

Here's HIS drive home, LAST EVENING! Napoleon (Toledo area) Campbell's ... to Mt. Vernon, Ohio. No plows. Note, the placement of the 'Pedigreed Bulldog' on the hood, LoL!

Best always, pal.
