Today I drove from Big Spring, Texas to Lordsburg, Arizona in heavy wind from the southwest. I’m hauling just over 32,000 lbs of tires which is enough to keep the trailer in line and not rocking too badly, but there is a limit to everything.
I could have gone on for two more hours but there wasn’t much point. In the past eight days I’ve driven almost 4,000 miles and I’m out of hours. I get back six hours tonight at midnight which would let me finish the trip to Nogales but then I would be low on hours Monday morning after I deliver. Instead, I’m going to stay put here until Monday morning to reset my hours then finish it off then.
