Springfield,MO

Another day with the truck in the shop! UGH! But as soon as we are done with this we will be back on the road again. We had to bring the truck into the shop Thursday night for an 0800 appt with the APU shop on Friday morning. It is too darn hot out here to be without an APU. Especially when we are at shippers/receivers that don't allow you to idle the truck while we are being loaded or unloaded.

We also had to get a PM done, which we are getting now, and get two new drive tires. Picked up a nail in one that must have had a slow leak because it never actually went flat. Just lost enough air that it caused both tires on that side to wear extremely fast. So now that we have that taken care of, I am hoping that we will be good and ready to roll.

We have a load that we broght with us and we will hook back up to that one and deliver it out to Apple Valley,CA on Monday. From there we aren't sure where they will send us. We are supposed to be in Lubbock,TX on Saturday July 24th. That gives us about 5 days. I don't know if they will send up to the east coast and then to Lubbock or maybe something to the Chicago or Midwest area and then on down to Lubbock. My birthday, the big 4-0 is Sunday the 25th so we are celebrating on Saturday the 24th. So we HAVE to be back for that!!

Not much else going on. We have been fairly busy. I just keep forgetting to blog. I have to tell J that he needs to start reminding me! After almost three years of daily posting, I have seriously fallen off the wagon!

Hi T & J.
I just wanted to say I really enjoy your blog. I live in Mtn Home, AR, not too far from Springfield. I've spent 1 1/2 yrs in Frightliners delivering trusses around the area, and I am interested in going OTR with Prime. Your blog shows me and others what it's all about and reading about your experiences will really help me if I go OTR. I'm sure it's hard to keep up with the blog but there are some of us out here hanging on your every word! LOL.
Are you guys on Facebook? I'd love to see some of your photos from your adventures!!!
Be safe out there and keep up the great work!!!
Thanks, again...

I've been reading your blog. Very interesting. I'm considering becoming an OTR trucker and I learning a lot from blogs like this. Are you still running? Or have you found other work. Love to read an update.

take care, pat
