One down one to go....

Well, I was able to make it back in time for Turkey Day. It was a pretty decent day overall.

I was able to relax for a few days before getting back on the road.  Note to self....don't go back on the road in the middle of a holiday weekend.  What can go wrong will.

I had a nice load going up to the northeast, but there was a massive screw up with the paperwork when I got there.  They gave me a mediocre load after that, ugh.

Now to get ready for the fat man in the red suit.  After that, we have New Year's.  This time of year it seems there is so much going on.

So did everyone else have a good Turkey Day?

Busy time of the year

The one thing I can say about the end of the year is that freight picks up pretty good. I mean heck, how do you think all of those gifts and stuff get to the stores? lol

I have been keeping pretty busy since the last time I have blogged and I apologize.  Right now I am helping out one of our many dedicated fleets that we have.

I am up in Corinne, Utah running with one of our Wal-Mart dedicated grocery fleets delivering to the stores in their area.  I have done this before for some of our other fleets and have always given them a very good performance, so when I wander in their area, they like to snag me up to help.

The nice thing about running this freight is that I can make more money running it vs OTR.  Now if I was to stay on the dedicated fleet and sign the contract it would drop back down to about what I made OTR so that's one of the reasons I like to run the 'surge' as they call it.

Well, I just got another load so I better get back to work.  I am hoping to be home for Thanksgiving, so chat with everyone later.
