Got up at 02:00am,left the house at 02:30am, drove to the terminal in Kingdom City MO. 65 miles from Dardenne Prairie. Got the beast, I mean bus fired up and pre checked, Of course it did not have enough fuel for my trip so my first stop was the truck stop to put $350 worth of diesel in.Left the truck stop at 0400am and arrived at Quincy Il. at 06:30am.I picked up the Boys baseball team and we departed for Ullin Il. at 07:15am.
Arrived at Shawnee Community College in Ullin Il. at 12noon, after warming up and then playing two games and winning both, Boy I love college baseball. We headed for the motel at 6:00PM which was only 7 miles away, when we got there the coach found out there was only a BBQ place & a convenience store that sold pizza’s and sandwich’s
He then asked if we could go thirty miles north to Marion Il. for a choice of food. I then broke the news to him that I was already over my 15 hours of duty for the day so I didn’t have another hour and the bus would have to sit till tomorrow.Can’t say as he was very happy, but my birthday meal for all day consisted of a sub sandwich from the convenience store and a 20oz. Coke,plain nothing to liven it up.
Been a long day , so be safe out there,
Thanks to all for the Birthday greetings, they were appreciated.
Sam & Donna.
