Default I am back guys

Hi! It was a nice trip that I just went on. I first went to Memphis, TN. I had 2 deliveries there. THen I had to go to North Little Rock, Ark. then the last stop was Russelville, Ark. I am very tired now. I was surprised I even posted this tonight. I will keep in touch via truck stop internet called pnv.com. Its just so expensive. They want $1 for 5 mins. I guess that isn't so bad to make a couple of relies or check messages or just viewing. I will keep in touhc with you all when I am out. Glad to be back home though

I won't forgrt the password at all I say this is like the worst truck I have ever drove and the worst trip. I for one have asthma. I am in a truck with no a/c. That is one down dall. Another is that its 2 of us. We are in an old J.B. Hunt cabover and its a flattop 110" sleeper I feel trapped in this thing. No air ride suspension at all. No Jake Brake. I will stop there because if I continue, I will quit. The distance was nice. We had 5 stops. All in the hot environment. Later on aat night we would have to sleep with the windows cracked for some type of ventilation.. On the ride back home from the town called Russellville, Arkansas I took 40 EB to 67 NB to 412EB to 55NB to 57. On US 67 we stopped at a truck stop to refuel and there was another driver who worked for SWIFT needing help getting directions out to DeKalb IL. I went to go help him and his truck was so nice. He had a brand new Freightliner Columbia 03 and his a/c felt so good, te seats were comfortable, I almost fell asleep on them. My co-driver also went up in there as I was trying to give him the best direct route to the consignee and my co-driver said that I left the window down in the wrong part of town.

I sadi what did you mean? He said that the mosquito'* are twice as big as the onces are here in Chicago and chances are they are in the trcu already. Sure enough they were but I didn't get bit. I got bit unknowingly in my sleep. Man! My are fingers and legs have bumps from them damn things. I hate that truck. I just like it just to make money.
