Wow, man, I haven't heard a friend say to me "what's your plans for this weekend" in a very long time. Well, the truth is that I dont have any plans for the weekend and that's been the story for the past two years. I don't have a life, and there's no world outside of driving all day!

But in all seriousness, I just drove the night shift to drop this trailer in Salt Lake City bound for TN. I got it here as soon as possible to give the next driver as much time to get it there as possible. Now I only have 4:40 on my 70 hour clock today so I plan on doing laundry at the terminal because it's cheaper (it's 50c for washer/dryer opposed to 2.50 at a truck stop). I'm also planning on doing some repairs because my truck is falling apart on me, maybe I should be more gentle to her.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Celebrating my daughters 14th birthday. I got home last night and made everyone breakfast this morning. She's currently enjoying a did coma surrounded by cuddling dogs.

Hey Tim, sorry to high jack this thread, but I think you asked me the other day about some flat-bed companies that might hire rookies. I can't find it now, but I hope it was you that asked cause here's a quick list off the top of my head. I think most, if not all, of these will hire and train rookie drivers.

I'm sure there are some others, but those come to mind for now.

As far as weekend plans, I'm picking up a load in Louisiana and running it up to Connecticut. I just came from Massachusetts back down to Louisiana, I'm starting to think I can run that route up into the North East with blindfolds on. I don't mind it one bit, as far as I'm concerned it's a gravy run - lot's of miles and not much work involved.
