Dole deal is over

After shuttling Dole loads between Springfield Ohio and Bensalem Pennsylvania 2-3 times weekly since my last blog entry it's now over unfortunately.

Today I'm doing the first day of my new monday route which is turkey carcasses from Harrison Ohio to Quakertown Pennsylvania. It's used f...


Great day

Happy Monday, another week with more produce to New York City. Went to bed much earlier than usual last night so I could get up early and reset the house before I left. I succeeded! 

Now at Dole again as you can see, waiting for my load to get done. They're usually done around 130...


2 hours delayed

I got two hours delay today because the trailer was not pre-loaded. I should have called and checked if they had the trailers earlier this morning but hindsight is always 20/20.

I did however meet a friend, who's also a truck driver here in the states. He's driving for Prime. We decide...


Weekend is over

Yes, the weekend it's over and I'm back at Dole to pick up another load to New York City.

It was kind of a shity week because the house I was going to buy got taken right in front of my eyes. Now a new house hunt going is going to start but unfortunately, it's not a lot of nice houses ...


Hello again New York City

I'm back in New York City again after a long day on the road from Ohio. Started early this morning, picking up the usual load at Dole. Drove most of the day with just a couple of breaks. Once was actually just to get fuel. I also discovered a couple of retards drivers taking their break at the...


Hos getting annoying

Another week and another load back to New York City. Now sitting outside R Best in Port Washington, waiting to get my hours back so I can drive the last 30-40 seconds into their yard and deliver.  It really starts to get annoying when you gonna be 2 hours late for your appointment just be...


Boars Head is history

Back in NYC again and now it seems like this will be my route until something better comes up. My beloved route with Boar's Head deli to Spring City PA has been lost. It's really sad, it was a perfect route, but I'm crossing my fingers for something just as good to come soon. Until then I will...


Western Beef

I managed to get home for Christmas, then I went back to work on Friday for a delivery at Western Beef and a second stop out in Port Washington.

 


My loads gone

Good morning and happy holidays everyone. Showed up at my 6 a.m. appointment at Dole Springfield here in Ohio, but  seems like my load has already been taken by another driver. 

They do have another trailer with a load going to the same location but with a different pick-up n...


New York City & long island

This is my second trip to NYC and Long Island. Same stops as last time, but a pickup from Brooklyn, very close to my second stop. Weather is great today, in the mid 40s.

Thanksgiving is also coming up for whoever is lucky enough to celebrate that with families. I'll probably be home on...

Isn't it lovely when you only get 3 hours of sleep and have to use the remaining 7 hours of your sleeper birth to drive in off-duty between two companies and unload.

That's what's happening today and it's not the first time in this company known as Knight Refrigerated. Yesterday I only...
