Homebound

It was a long way home from Boston to Columbus, but I did not run during the night this time. The heat and the truck that wouldn't idle at night plus the extreme headache I had made that impossible. I was popping pills to make it go away and it eventually did. I woke up around 8 am and was gro...


Produce to Boston

The two stop load I picked up in Hazleton Wednesday morning have been successfully delivered. I must say night driving is definitely not for me. I'm currently in  Chelsea MA, a city in Suffolk county, directly across the mystic river from the city of Boston. Just ran out of my 14 hours an...


27 hours on 600 miles

Then I was headed 15 miles south of my previous destination to Americold to pick up a Walmart load going to New Albany in Mississippi.

I was there on time, about an hour before my appointment, and got myself checked in. Was immediately assigned to a door and the waiting started. About ...


Romeoville

Finally made it up to AmerisourceBergen in Romeoville after a couple hours delay at the shipper. 

I arrived at the destination at 18:30 and got unloaded quickly. It was no more than maybe 6 skids so it felt like driving an empty trailer.

The trip went smooth, roads were...


Cold snow and fresh bananas

Made it the the usual place for my Washington Courthouse deliveries. The Loves at Jeffersonville, across the highway from the outlet.

I really dislike early deliveries like this, but it could be worse. I parked around 4, for a shower and some food, then I was chilling for a while watch...


Finally weekend

This was a messy week, mostly because of that bad start on Tuesday morning. The big round-trip got canceled and replaced with something that seemed better (at first).

I needed to deliver the pharma load at the customer today at 10 am, I showed up at the customer an hour before, but sti...


Another late night in Bronx

Another late night delivery in Bronx, just backed into their ramp and now waiting for them to come in at 6. They they won't be ready to work before closer to 7 anyway.

It looks like that big round trip with 2000+ miles in three days they gave me earlier today have been cancelled. It wa...


No bills for this trip

Delivered a load from Tyson in Lexington Nebraska to Tyson in Emporia Kansas Friday morning, went up the to Kansas City yard to sleep cause my next load was picking up from Lineage Edwardsville on Friday afternoon. Switched to a better trailer at the Kansas yard and headed down to Lineage arou...


Pontoon Beach

Went back to Hazleton on Friday with a drop delivere on Saturday, then went down to Flying J near Carlisle on US11 and took my night there. It was early, not even 17:00 when I parked. This morning I got up and went down south on I81 to exit 37 where I got a live load from Unilever going west t...


Rain in subzero

SHowed up at Americold in Belvidere IL at 17:00 for my appontment, was done loaded and ready roll for Gas City IN aroun 20:00. It was very cold and raining. The combination of subzero degrees and rain was no fun, but didnt have any bad time with it except from one of the side roads on my way o...


From the dirty south to the cold north

Just done with my delivery at Ryder in Rochelle IL. My appointment was at 0400 and I backed into a door then went to bed. At 0830 this morning they knocked on my door and told me they were ready to unload. Done at 11:00 which gives me 5 hour detention pay. 

I was loaded up at Amer...

This week started bad with a trip to Walgreen in  Windsor WI. I had an appointment at 1230 which of course destroyed the rest of my dat. This place sucks cause no matter when you get here your day is over.  Took the rest of my night at a TA just two miles down the road.  Next da...
