September 6, 2004 -- After I got loaded at Baldwinsville, New York, I found a place to pull into and slept until early Saturday afternoon. Not long after I woke up, the trailer's refrigeration unit developed a problem and kept shutting itself down. I was able to get it fixed at the nearby Syracuse, New York Thermoking Dealership.

I'm now at Dalton, Georgia, where I will unload my first drop in a few hours. The second and final drop delivers early Wednesday morning in Birmingham, Alabama. After that they should be heading me towards home by Friday the 10th for about 4 days' time off.
