Plenty of Empty Miles in a 6000 Kilometre Week.
____ A Monday morning departure; west to Portage La Prairie for a load of oats that was destined for a Tuesday evening delivery appointment at Manawa in Wisconsin. Then a nine hour haul up to Dryden in Ontario with the empty trailer. A quick swap for a loaded trailer of pulp and I was off down the narrow Highway 502 again. Across into the States at International Falls before due South to Jackson, Missouri. Friday afternoon before I got unloaded but the office had a Saturday lunchtime trailer switch for me at De Kalb, back to Illinois and homeward bound. Back into Canada with just a couple of hours left of my weekly 70 allowance. Just enough time to drop the trailer in Winnipeg and bobtail home.
