Today’s journey was short and sweet. Short in that I only had to drive about 280 miles to Omaha, Nebraska and sweet in that this week is Driver’s Appreciation week and Hill Bros is having a cookout each day in one of the buildings, with lots of free food and drink. You don’t have to tell drivers about this twice, I note.
I offered to tcall the trailer here at the yard since I had hours to run but there wasn’t enough freight and I was told to deliver it tomorrow morning. Thus, after ransacking the free vittles I drove over to the west side of town to the local truck stop for a shower, which happens to be less than a mile away from the Kraft warehouse I deliver at 0600.
