Year 2, Day 133 (Getting A Re-Start)

Dillard and I were able to get unloaded in Tomah, WI in a timely manner, then get re-loaded in Cornell, WI before they shut down for the weekend. Once we scaled the load, we made it back to Black River Falls, WI and shut down at the rest area there. We left out this morning and made our way to Arkansas. I made the decision for us to get to the terminal in Madison, IL and shut down for a re-start. Since the customer is a 24 hour facility, we don't have to be there first thing in the morning on Monday. I felt by shutting down at the Madison terminal, that would be the most advantageous for us and we wouldn't have to be running on our logbook's re-cap for the next week or so.

Along the way, we took a little break (about 1 1/2 hours, as it turned out) in Janesville, WI. Yes, I paid a visit to the Starbucks there. The weather has been sunny all day, and traffic was relatively smooth. Popeye's for dinner, milk for tomorrow's cereal... everything is set for the time being.
