Irony, thy name is trucking.
This morning I ran the load I got earlier down to our dropyard in Kansas City then waited around for a while, until I was beeped to run back up the same highway back up to Des Moines and stage for a — wait for it — Conway load going to Dallas, Texas in the morning.
For crying out loud people, I leave there a few months ago and you still have me pulling your freight!
On the plus side, I got a nice, cleansing 200 mile deadhead back up to Des Moines and the 680-odd miles tomorrow entirely along interstates promises to be nice and relaxing. I have a new book on tape loaded up in my MP3 player and I get to leave around 0500, nice and early for me.
