Year 2, Day 29 (On Route To Kansas City)

Lou and I left out from the North Little Rock, AR terminal this morning and made our way to Pine Bluff to load. We have one of the recently acquired lease trailers that our employer have (since we are a little low in our trailer availability, and are still waiting for some on order), and, as it turns out, these are heavier than our regular trailers... by about 2,000 lbs. Once we were loaded at the customer, we went to scale it out only to find we were over the gross weight limits by 1180 lbs. (our limit is 80,000). We went back to the customer to have a roll of paper taken off, and waited 45 minutes. It turns out, the customer had to wait on a phone call to be returned giving them the ok to cut one roll from the order.

After all was (finally) said and done, we had some valuable time lost, and the chance that delivery could be late, but I'm hoping it doesn't come to that. The god news is I had some coffee this morning, and I'm getting ready to finish off the left-overs from my dinner at Carino's the other night.

Mmmm, Mmmm, GOOD!!
