Well kids, I finally made myself get back in the truck and come back to work. I loaded a 12 ft wide piece of machinery and a few smaller ones this morning in Mansfield, Ohio. It turned out to be a pretty easy load to chain down and it has not been bad to pull so far....just gotta get used to that extra 2 ft hanging off both sides of the trailer....and the fact that now I am as wide or wider than the lanes on the highway....just gotta let the excess hang over the shoulder most of the time. I will get a picture of it sometime this week when I have a prettier background LOL.
Right now I am in a little dinky truckstop in a town called Pendleton, KY. No oversized loads allowed to move near Louisville from 4-6 PM so here I sit..... for the whole night now , because by 6 it will be dark and not allowed to move the load after dark either. This time of year wide loads can make a person lazy LOL. I just wish there was a place to get some decent food around here.... I have the great choice of McDonalds or Subway....some choice.....NOT.
My husband has a wide load on also and is running about a hundred miles behind me going the same direction.....talk about timing.... He has the same restrictions as me so unless I goof off somewhere tomorrow I will not even get to see him ...... the story of our life....LOL.
Guess I will goof off for a few hours then hit the hay so I can be rolling as soon as the first streaks of gray light the sky.....
