Where were we.....
Feb 24, 2009
Last week, I worked myself into a frenzy trying to catch up after several delays early in the week.So when it came time to bid on this weeks run, the only thing on my mind was recovery time. I chose a short haul, 10 stops in Alabama, calculating the amount of time I would have off in the evenings to recuperate. My projected schedule would have me unload 7 stops on Monday, 15 hours of downtime, 3 more drops bright and early on Tuesday and a quick trip through the woods to get back to the plant.

After having a physically and emotionally frustrating week, I thought I should try to get back out on the trail and start running again. Those endorphins help to keep me on cloud nine.

Update.....After this weekends numerous mis-communications, I did found out that everyone except me knew about the new gate hours. The reason I was never told, is because I am normally in New England, and don't typically haul scrap.

Last night after waiting and searching and waiting some more, I finally found the only two employees who were working. There was no guard on duty, and they had no way of opening the gate for me. I was advised to camp out until morning.
I made it to work on Saturday....Instead of my normal route, I was scheduled to handle our little scrap run all week. The good thing about this is that the trailers are waiting on me. I grab one, run it back to the plant, dump it and return the mill to grab another one. It is a 24/7 operation, and I can haul as many as I feel up to in the next 6 days.

This week, I was delighted to find myself heading westwardly bound into the old familiar places of yesteryear.
I give up!

Really. I am not sure what is going on here, but I am almost frightened to realize the outcome.
