Stuck in Ca……….

   Thurs. afternoon:
       Arrived  at the consignee address around noon and they were somewhat waiting for this freight…..so we quickly unchained and threw everything on the back deck to put away after the crane had jerked the units off and swung around to a trailer waiting to be loaded for a further trip to another address somewhere off when all were delivered in a row. I  had #G and #H. Another truck had #C and #D and so on………

   When all was done and paperwork signed, I called the agent who gave me a load the day before that was going back to the NW for Friday and that I should call him when unloaded on thurs. for directions, now backslid and told me he didn’t know if it was ready etc, etc……. later to find out , it was to be put on another truck in the morning (Fri.) and I was out! Every once in awhile that happens……… but now I can’t trust that agent and I really thought I could…………………. That means almost inevitably I will get stuck in this area where there is not much freight and freight  especially not exactly where I need to get back too. So here I am on Sunday and it’s $12.00 a nite to park orless you spend $50.00 a day in the cafe’ or buy 75 gal. of fuel a day, blah blah blah……..and  costly to eat and not a thing around except the local cafe’ and a large parking lot…………….. need I say more……

     Cold last nite and was glad we had that wool blanket to throw over us  and glad to have the APU for some extra heat toward morning….. Tomorrow I will start back digging out something going NW……..Luckily our office is aware and is looking also… In the meantime, the sun is out and we are going for a walk and get some fresh air…….

   Happy Trails!!!
