@Snowblind today was one for the books. Didn't have a load this morning when I woke up. Got moving, grabbed a shower, and was grabbing a couple cups of TA's finest when a guy called me with a load. As much as I usually hate the Landstar board these days, the "follow me" feature for load searches definitely pays off when you need it. This guy called me with a run that ended up being 230 miles (actual) and paid $1k. The catch was that there were seven pickups before delivery. I thought it was going to take a hell of a lot longer than it did, every stop was incredibly fast. Guess it kinda had to be that way, given the nature of the load. I was supposed to pick up my next load tomorrow but I had time left to go get it tonight, so I made it happen. Thank god it was preloaded otherwise I woulda came to the place I'm parked now and called it a night. I spoke to @MIT briefly today and I remember him saying on TTR that he didn't get much practice backing when he was with his trainer. Hell this woulda been a great load for him. Had to dock 8 times, 3 were very tricky. Then a dnh. That's either a student's wet dream or worst nightmare 🤣 Knowing @MIT as causally as I do, I'm betting he would have loved it. Wore my a$$ out, I know that. Hope you're doing well brutha. Cheers wherever you are. 'Bout to go refill this glass 😁

Greetings from Hebron, Ind.

That is way to many stops man, I'm mentally wore out just thinking about it.

I tried calling him this morning on my way to Green Bay actually, Millis truck passed me that I thought was him at first, but no answer. Talked to him a couple weeks ago, seemed in good spirits.

Glad he's doing ok. Like I said, scares me when doesn't respond.

There was supposed to be an 8th stop but they didn't have anything to ship. So now on top of the seven BOLs I have to scan in, I have to generate an 8th for the missing stop so I get my extra $50. It wasn't bad, really. Dealing with routing on surface streets was the worst part, but it wasn't overly difficult. I have a favorite stop in this neck of the woods, so all the better. The walk home won't be a long one. It's not often these days that you can find a restaurant/bar that will let you park, but here's my view on the patio while having a beer and a smoke. Not too shabby 😁

I have clearly been tied to a dog. I was very worried that I developed an air leak on my truck. It wasn't the truck. I just did a dnh and now I have no issues. That's a great feeling. I've had about 4 pounds of bleed in the last 10 minutes. Gotta love inheriting garbage trailers. I ain't lettin' this one go. She's beautiful.

Great song, just now listened to it. If I close my eyes and ignore the video, the singer sounds like a young Vince Neil. He had a stretch where he was doing his own thing away from Motley Crue. Pretty impressive stuff for the time. Kinda wish he kept going.

Wow, my team is off to a blindingly amazing start. At 0-2 we are the most feared team in the league, believe that. Super Bowl, here we come! Pffffttttt Christ. We still have to play the Browns so at least we won't go winless.

I was about to say, there’s no way you’ll lose to the Browns.🤣🤣

Indeed. Dynasty’s come and go in American football. The pats have just had a longer streak than most. The mighty will fall one day. Brady can’t play forever.
Hell if he dies they'll find a way to reanimate his corpse for another ring. It was nice to have the title of six rings while it lasted :(
