Our load out of Columbus OH was finally ready at about 1745 Friday night. By the time the the paperwork was ready, we got fueled, hooked to the loaded trailer, and performed our pre-trip inspection, it was nearly 1900 when we drove out the gate at the terminal.
We hit some pretty nasty weather around Indianapolis IN. Heavy rain, lightning and high winds mostly. The rain and winds lasted until we got to Effingham IL and then it cleared up pretty nicely.
It was very warm in Texas, New Mexico and Arizona, around 100-103 most of the day yesterday. This was a relatively uneventful trip. We did have several folks waiving and taking pictures of the truck but other than that, just a run of the mill drive across America.
We arrived in Phoenix at about 0330 this morning and had a great nights sleep. We got up about 0930 and got ready for the day. We dropped our trailer at the terminal, headed of over to the closest truck stop for some breakfast. After breakfast, I decided it was way too hot for me to wash the truck wo I went across the street and had the fells at Danny Truck Wash perform the dreaded feet. They done a great job washing the truck and making sure it was clean.
We are just sitting around, watching the Nascar race and waiting for another load. It's pretty darned warm here today. The thermometer says 108. We were asked if we could run one up to Vegas out of here. We like going up there so we accepted the load and it should be ready sometime this afternoon.
In the mean time...Here is a novel item for the coming election year.
When The Politicians Are On TV, Blowing Hot Air And You Want To Scream, Just Grab Your Doll And Give It A Fling, Let Them Know...Hey, You Work For Me.
A useful, bipartisan doll to give you something to throw while watching the news and listening to the politicians lie with every motion of their lips. Throw your doll and scream while never causing any damage to your television. These dolls now come with a retrieval string for retrieval without moving from your perch on the couch.
All Dolls are bipartisan, Republican on 1 side, Democrat on the other.
