715 freaking miles

Yeah that is a long drive. I got rolling as early as I could then headed to Phoenix, mostly without stopping. Arrived around 2200 hours local time to drop the trailer then off to bed for me.

I turned down another preplan I was given. The idea was that I would rest all of today then pick up a FedEx load tonight heading to Albuquerque for an 0600 delivery. I don't dislike night runs, in general, but switching from day to night and back again is hell on my body.

Of course, there is no one else who can possibly cover this load so eventually I agreed to it. I'm currently at the FedEx place awaiting a 2000 departure. Freaking protestant work ethic.
