A bunch of useless crap
Published on January 29, 2013 By MasonM In Blogging

Yesterday morning I loaded in North Bend, WA, put off two stops in Seattle, and then set out for Salt Lake City. The plan was to get to SLC by noon today, put off that final stop, and then reload for Michigan.

Well, I got as far as Baker City, OR last night. The last fifty miles was a nightmare due to Winter weather conditions. I had to stop here because they have up chain restrictions from here to the Idaho line. That means trucks have to put on tire chains. Our company policy is "We don't do that".

I understand why we don't do it. We haul expensive stuff on open trailers, and tire chains have a nasty habit of breaking, flying off the tire, and tearing up everything in their path.

So here I sit, waiting for the restrictions to be lifted so I can be on my way. No chance of making SLC by noon, or even before the customer closes for the day. Best I can hope for now is to get there some time tomorrow. I have a feeling this has probably screwed me out of that load to MI.

We turned warm for the past couple of days.  But that ends tonight.  It is still winter.

I hope you get out of there soon.

Thanks. I made it to SLC and delivered. Picked up a partial, some excavating equipment, and am now waiting for them to find something else to go along with it.

I would love to say I'm headed someplace warm, but sadly I will be going to northern Michigan.
