OK, I've pulled 2 loads of glass entirely on my own with a 3rd ready to go Sunday night.
I need work on backing, but I knew that all along. I've been doing all the coupling and uncoupling since Wednesday night i think. I've been backing into docks/bays and such.
I have yet to damage anything, but they say you can't haul glass without breaking some of it. But even if you do everything right, you can still have breakage.
Cities I've been to since the last post:
De Witt, IA to Minneapolis, MN
Bloomington, ?? to De Witt, IA
De Witt, IA to Chicago, IL and back
De Witt, IA to Owatonna, MN and back
De Witt, IA to Chicogo, IL
My homework this week end is to map a path from Dubuque, IA to Hopkins, MN.
The companies planned route is 313 miles, and my route in 313.6 so i think I'm really good since the company allows 10% over what they plan/pay for.
As I mentioned earlier I need work on my backing, so I really hope I get more practice with that this week.
