With Jim in the hospital and Joe frantically trying to keep up the work of two people I asked if he needed me back out for a while. He knows this is not where I want to be but sometimes it is just necessary to “Put the Big Girl Panties” on and suck it up.
Dependable Transport made it possible by renting a car for me to drive out to meet Joe. I left Oklahoma City just after noon and made the drive to Springfield, Missouri.
I arrived at the hotel Joe had reserved a room for us in. He hadn’t eaten all day and it was his wish to go get something to eat first.
Poor guy. He has been messing around with bank repos all day long. Waiting for someone to find keys. Waiting for someone to jump start the trucks. Waiting for someone to figure out how to stop a truck from honking incessantly because he doesn’t know the code for the security feature.
His plan was to have my two trucks hooked up and ready to go except for the inspection. Plans, in this job, have a way of not panning out.
Tomorrow I will drop the rental car at the airport in Springfield then go with Joe to see, exactly, what I have gotten myself into.
On the bright side…..I need to purchase adhesive rolls for my big ATG Gun. I can do that from the road and it will be waiting for me when I get home. Around Thanksgiving
Have a great night everyone.
