Spring Update

Wow, time sure flies by. Since my Halls Crossing post, back at the first of December, I’ve been to Texas once (3 stop trip) as well as multiple trips to UT, NV, & CA. I have terabytes of video footage, but my computer is so old that it doesn’t really like to compile the footage into postable videos unless I give it several hours (days) to think about each one.

I’ve transitioned from a day cab to a sleeper truck, and primarily haul AvGas 100 Low Lead fuel, with the occasional jet fuel load. I will attempt to link to some pictures and will post video links as I get them finished and uploaded.

Yesterday (2/18/22) I love my job! And my dusty truck. This morning in NE AZ. #NoCellSvc #truckdriver #tankeryanker #TruckingLife #wtl

A quick tour around my truck.

Halls Crossing

Halls Crossing, UT, is located a couple of hours west of Blanding, on State Hwy 95. On September 16, 2021, I was tasked with delivering jet fuel to their regional airport. Unfortunately, Hwy 95 was washed out just west of Blanding, so I had to make a detour and come at the location from the west end of the highway, via Hanksville, UT.

The detour took the run from a 1.5 day trip to a 3 day trip through the badlands of southeastern Utah.

Here is some of the dashcam video from that trip:

Time Sure Flies

Wow, I can’t believe how much time has gone by since my last post. It’s been crazy busy. Once you get into a routine, it’s just day after day. When I get home, I’m not really interested in working on the computer. I should post while I’m delivering, or stopped on break.

In the past few weeks, I’ve been to Flagstaff, Winslow, Page, Kingman, Yuma, Tucson, Sierra Vista, Bullhead City, Marana, and Safford, as well as numerous local hangers and airports. I’ve even been back to Boulder City, NV a couple of times.
