August 1, 2004 -- I loaded the load at San Antonio, Texas. I stopped at Gulf Port, Mississippi to sleep. Later Saturday evening I called a friend that lives in Gulf Port who was able to come pick me up and we went to eat at a seafood restaurant at the beach along the Gulf of Mexico.

I made it to Atlanta today (Sunday). My niece that currently lives here in Atlanta was able to come pick me up for a late lunch.

The load I have doesn't actually deliver until Tuesday morning at Doraville, Georgia. I'm hoping that that my fleet manager will allow me to drop the load here at the company yard for someone else to deliver so I can move on to the next load. If I have to sit 24 extra hours to wait to deliver this load it's going to be tough.
