Something new for the last two nights. I pulled ARCO/BP loads to San Luis, AZ both nights. San Luis is south of Yuma, right on the southern border with Mexico.
I pulled a load of Red-Dye diesel to a placed called Hayden Junction last night. You go East from Phoenix until you get to Superior and then go South! And there is a 10% grade to navigate...both directions. In the rain! That was fun. 200 miles roundtrip.
The best part of the trip? Driving along US 60 between Apache Junction and Florence Junction, and seeing the fireworks over Queen Creek/San Tan Valley, to the south.
Last night being the 4th and all that.
I'm now a Chevron dedicated driver. I pull Chevron loads only...supposedly. Happy 4th of July!
Oops, I'm out of hours! Really messed up by working both days off and not getting a 34-hr reset. Ran out of hours during my work week. Dispatch is NOT happy with me. But, my wife and son come home tonight so I can meet them at the airport.
