i'm going up going over to Montana

n Friday evening I finally went back on the road, picking up a load in Logansport, IN bound for Tacoma, WA. It's nearly identical to the trip I went on back in January when I crashed, in fact I drove by my accident site yesterday afternoon.

I am enjoying the new company I work for. They're very laid back folks and yet, so far, have been fantastic with logistics. They're keeping me busy with all the work I could want, but with sensible parameters that don't require me to work myself to death trying to meet the demands of the load. After I deliver in Tacoma today, I back-haul with a load that's waiting for me in Wallula, WA this evening, due in Dakota City, NE by Friday morning. I'll take Friday off and part of Saturday to reset my 70 hour than try and knock out another 70 before I take a couple of days off next weekend with Welf in PA.

You know the type of people that, no matter what your problem is, they always have some bigger sob story than you? Like if you told them you were just diagnosed with cancer, they'd tell you about how they got cancer AND had to have a limb amputated in the same day? Ordinarily, those folks annoy the ever-living bejeezus out of me, but there is one instance in which I am that person. You can not complain to me about how expensive gas prices are and how it costs $80 to fill-up your SUV, because fucker, I will always win the bitch-fest in that department.

Crazy.

Dang, Soop. You win that argument for SURE. I've shared your pic with a few folks here...and only semi-jokingly suggested I ask our Parking Office to allow me to add a horse carriage to the list of "approved vehicles" on my parking pass. Our Percheron (one of the new horses) is trained to pull carriages, to log, etc. so all I need to do now is get the carriage. Oh and start for work at 3 AM so I can get here before lunch!!

You've been in Tacoma...did you do me a huge favor and drive your truck thru my ex's yard? He always freaked out when the grass wasn't PERFECT. His new wife is VERY welcome to him--I'm glad I've traded up to a real partner and friend in Jahn, my current husband.

Safe travels! Enjoy PA--I'm reading Welfy's journal too and I know it's not news to you, but you're MISSED!!!
