Running Hard

We have been on this job now for just over 8 months and have almost 150,000 miles under our belts.  We thought we were running hard at times during that  period.  We thought wrong!  It seems that we have passed some kind of benchmark or test and we are now running with the Big Boys.  Our personal dispatch (thanks, Dad) has reported that we are on our way to a 25k month.  That was the goal that we had hoped to reach after our first year.

So if you see a streak of light flying low on the horizon, it is probably Con-Way tractor #24210.

We just thought we knew HOT!

 This is what we are dealing with now.  It went up another degree, but I figured you could get just as hot looking at this.

Lucky for us, we are waiting on a trailer to arrive from Mexico.  When it does, we will head out of here and on up to more reasonable temps in Memphis.

Last time we were in Memphis, I saw some peach and tomato stands just West of town.  I am definitely going to try for a stop there!
