What? No not today, that's what happened last night. Dispatch called at about 1915 last night to say that one of their dedicated trucks was broken down and that they needed us to cover a load to Indianapolis and right back to Atlanta. We were to meet another driver in Indianapolis, with a load from Chicago and switch trailers with him.
By the time the other truck got back to our Atlanta yard it was about 1930. We hooked the loaded trailer, performed a pre-trip inspection, made some small talk with the driver and then we were off to Indianapolis.
We traveled up I-75 to Chattanooga TN where we accessed I-24 and ran that to Nashville TN. From Nashville we ran up I-65 into Indianapolis.
We made it to Indy at about 0530, rendezvoused with the other driver, switched paperwork and trailers, performed our pre-trip inspection, caught up on our logbooks, and we were headed back to Atlanta by about 0600.
We traveled the same routes to get back into Atlanta that we traveled out of there. We arrived back at the yard at about 1500 but before we even got back into the Atlanta area we had a dispatch back out. We were asked to run a load up to Columbus oh that would be ready at about 2000 tonight.
The trip up to Indy and back was really uneventful. We hit a few spots of rain was all. I did get 1 great picture of the way someone in Kennesaw GA feels about our illustrious government and those in charge. I believe if you'll click on the image it will enlarge enough that you will be able to read the bumper stickers. More and more, all across America, the pot is beginning to boil. People are fed up, tired and disgusted with our tyrannical, out of control, power thirsty politicians.
In the mean time...Here is a novel item for the coming election year.
