Before we got to Columbus on Wednesday evening the notified us and asked if we would take an empty trailer to Louisville KY and then a loaded trailer to Dallas. We got there, Columbus, at about 1800, refueled the truck, grabbed an empty and by about 1900 we were moving on south, to Louisville KY. We got to Louisville at about 2215 and dropped our empty trailer. I checked in at the office and found that our trailer was loaded and ready to go. I hooked to the trailer and we were off and running.
We left Louisville at about 2250 and drove straight through to Dallas. We changed drivers near Memphis and Tina drove the rest of the way to DFW. We arrived here at about 1300 yesterday and it appeared, and later proved true, that they wouldn't have anything out last night. We did get a good nights sleep though. It was a nice, cool night. No generators or other trucks running, windows open and plenty of fresh air. Sometimes, just the sound of "quiet" is grand.
We got up this morning , contacted some folks about our water damage repairs, insurance, contractors, adjusters, etc.. After some paperwork completion, we went and had breakfast over at the local Cracker Barrel. We came back here to the terminal and I performed a grease job on the truck and changed my engine oil bypass filter. I was going to wash the truck but just didn't feel like it today. I decided it wasn't really that dirty. I'll wash it when we get to Columbus.
Our load is supposed to be ready about 0500 on Saturday and we should be, if the load is ready on time, in Columbus by about midnight on Saturday. We'll get another good nights sleep tonight and be ready to go in the morning. we hope to see you along the way. More tomorrow.
