I didn't wake up until about 10:30 am, I was online until about 3 am
I had not received any calls during friday, saturday, or sunday about any jobs involving a job today. So i figured no jobs would come in
At 11 am the phone rings, no real information except that would i escort a semi truck at 1 PM from Chula Vista right at the Pacific Oceans shoreline, the load is going about 130 miles out into the desert.
I don't even have a name for the trucking company, the drivers name, or even the correct address. I know the address is wrong, because i was there once before & the address given is only a Pedestrian Gate, the Truck gate is about a mile away, on a different street.

YEP its Monday & time to leave, see you all in about 7 hours

Damn it was a bad Monday
i was at the jobsite at 12:45 PM
the companies trucks were sitting in an outside parking lot, not loaded
they didn't even start loading until 3:45 PM,
Curfew starts at 4 PM, no oversized loads can move between 4 - 6 PM

The truckers didn't know they were hauling an Oversized load, they had NO red flags, they didn't have the 2 required Oversize load signs, for front & rear, they had no lights for a night run, & worst of all, they didn't even have a PERMIT to pull onto ANY road

I went home, tomorrow is another day, 9 AM appt.

Dang GT, made for a very long day! My Monday wasn't too bad, first day of a week's vacation so spent my day driving to FL. Not a bad drive except for the weather, rain all the way to the FL line then it stopped lol but in spots in MS, it was 35-40 on I-10 and driving with flashers on cause nobody could see. Oh well, it's vacation, quality time with my truck, then my dad and that sure beats work!

Today is Monday for me. Im going to watch a movie, then pack to go to work. On my way to work Im going to stop at my mom and step dads and fiddle with their car that broke down on them last week (my fear is that I will be tearing the head off of this thing, but exhausting all other options first). Once I get to work and crew change and check on everythng I will head to the companys living quarters and watch tv and get some sleep for my full Monday which is tomorrow. Confusing huh? lol

On the actual week day Monday, I cut the grass and shopped a little bit with my wife, then watched Mon night football with my little brother. Next Monday will actually be Thursday in my world and I will be looking forward to my 7 day weekend.

LOL, taking this thread into Tuesday

It is now 7 AM, I have 2 hours before i have to be at the Plant close to the Mexican Border with San Diego, where i will be meeting the Wide Oversized semi truck load. It is a wide but very light load, some kind of dollies for airplane parts. The load is going east about 135 miles & then it will cross into Mexico after they sign my invoice.
There is a slight issue though, it is so foggy here that news is saying ZERO visibility, hopefully it will lift in the next hour. Once we start climbing the Hills, the news said it clears up & out in the desert it is never that bad.

Glad that we don't have to go north up the Interstate 5, at Camp Pendleton Marine Base there was a accident, a trucker that was hauling 75 tons of TOMATOES ran into a UPS semi truck that was empty. The Highway Patrol said it will be a few more hours before the truck & trailer can be uprighted & taken away. Then they have to push all of the tomatoes off the highway, if the semi trailer was enclosed, the tomatoes will have to be unloaded by hand, if it was an open top trailer, then it would be an easy job.
Glad that i retired from Caltrans, i don't miss cleaning up those accidents at all

Carrying this into Wednesday. Came in to work last night just in time to send all of my crews out of town except 1. So this morning I woke up at 4:45 to be here for 6, and am currently enjoying my 2nd cup of coffee before breakfast. The next couple days are going to be fairly easy, cant accept any big projects as I dont have the man power or equipment to handle it. Cant borrow anyone from our other divisions because.......well, they have already borrowed my people. I love when a week starts out like this.
