BJ wholesale

Then I'm back again at BJ wholesale distribution center in Uxbridge  MA. I arrived early and tried to see if I could check-in, but was told no appointment was made for this load.

With no appointment, things start to look bad, but I headed over to the McDonald's where there's some ...


Quakertown

Started Monday with walking the dogs before dropping them off at the boarding place in Tipp City. Started pouring down soon after, but didn't last long.

At this point, I was an hour later out than usual, but no worries. When I got to Kopp Turkey around 11 two trailers were already load...


Sysco Cincinnati

It was a horrible start to this trip, not very long after I headed out of Loves on 78 I saw a lot of commotion going on in the westbound lanes. From the radio, I could hear a woman had been run over by a truck. 

Once I got to the shipper, things went fast. I called the phone numbe...


The new appointment

This load up to C&S in Westfield MA was supposed to be rescheduled which it was, but they put the new appointment time this coming Sunday, the 6th. 

Thankfully I wasn't far passed the Carlisle yard when I called it a night the day before, so I just stayed until my ...


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...


Weekend

After getting loaded up with bananas on Wednesday afternoon my 14 was getting low and so was my energy levels so I pulled over in Carlisle at the company yard and called it a night. I had too much time on my hands for this load, but don't get me wrong, nothing is better than that.

I tr...


Return to Ohio

The delivery out on Long Island went thru like a breeze, just after 9 I rolled away towards Bordentown for fuel then bananas in Gloucester City. 

Once arrived at Del Monte and checked in I wasn't sitting for long before they called me with a door. Loading up went pretty quick toda...


Long Island ice cream

I went to Long Island for another Ice cream delivery for Marinas Ice cream today, I tried to get as close as I could, but not easy to park out here so I went to the old customer in Port Washington and parked on the street.

Earlier today I had a delivery in Quakertown which went pretty ...


Escaping from rain

Had a good sunny weekend, was able to buy a polisher and a grinder so hopefully, I can start polishing the rims on the truck next week. It's really needed. I got up early Monday morning to get ready for another week on the road. The day was gloomy with grey clouds and it was pouring down. I le...


Mini toaster oven

This is a low-cost and very small toaster that works well in a truck, but you need an inverter. It's only 550W so you don't need a huge inverter for it. It comes in 4 different colors which is red, aqua, yellow and pink. At Amazon its picture with a little tray inside which was not included wh...


Weekend

Finally home after a pretty unusual week, not a bad week. Just unusual. I arrived yesterday in the afternoon at the Lineage warehouse in Conklin NY, but they were not able to get me unloaded early. Not a surprise really, I've been in this game for a while now.

I was directed to park in...


Conklin NY

Lineage logistics is not a new customer, but Conklin NY is definitely a new place in the middle of nowhere. More exactly a couple of hours north on I81 from Hazleton PA. 

I wasn't much in a rush today either, but I did move from the Plymouth mall to Walmart in KoP to replenish my ...


A chill day

A pretty chill day I must say. Started this morning in Monroe Township NJ delivering the Tyson product to Costco on Costco Drive, checked in, and did all that stuff you do there. Was immediately assigned to door #144 and 2 hours later I was done and could leave.

My next dispatch howeve...


From Pottsville to Costco NJ

Calling it a night just about now, pulled over on the shoulder right after the tollbooth here at route 32 in New Jersey. I have this Tyson load going to Costco in the morning. The appointment is at 5 am. I picked this up at Tyson in Pottsville earlier, I'm actually pretty positively surprised ...


Back in Ohio

Must be one of the busiest days in months, I started out around 6 am in Hazleton and drove straight to Ohio, had a 30-minute break an hour east of Columbus, then headed to the Indiana yard to drop. I arrived at the yard at 18;00. Did the drop and used PC from the yard and home. I've been recei...


Velvet ice cream

I'm going with an ice cream load to a tourist attraction in Ohio, the place is called Velvet ice cream Ava is located in Utica OH just about 45 minutes northeast of Columbus Ohio.

I started yesterday delivering the Martin Brower load in Enfield CT, then drove 5 hours from there to Hazl...


Back in Enfield

I'm here again, on time as always. Spent the night at the local mall's parking lot where Sears used to be. 
I parked around 21:00 last night and got up just after 7. A 5-minute trip later I checked in to the customer and one hour later I was on my way out


Martin Brower

This week I'm going back to Enfield CT with a load to Martin Brower or McDonald's. Starting later this Monday feels good, get to sleep a little longer before heading out for another week on the road.

 My appointment for pickup was 13:00 at Interstate Warehouse in Hamilton OH. This...


Wakefern in Jamesburg

Another week but no Quakertown this time, unfortunately. I did however get back east and this time to Wakfern in Jamesburg. I've been here a few times before and it's easy to get to. The place has overnight parking, high lumper fees, and tight spots, especially if you get here at the wrong tim...


No sleep again

Worked night from Sunday to Monday again, keep telling myself this is the last time. Once I ...


Burris part 2

I started this morning at 1 AM from Walmart in King of Prussia, Then headed up to the US cold storage in Hazelton to pick up my preloaded trailer going back to Burris in Harrington.

On my way up there it started to snow and it was a little white blanket down the road but didn't last ve...


Burris part 1

Because of the long day at the dog food factory, I got up to the cold storage later than planned, but my next load from here was supposed to be preloaded so no biggie, but it wasn't.

I had them make this load preloaded while I took my sleepover at turkey hill, I also did the same with ...


Quakertown

The longest day here ever, waited from 10 am until 1700 before I was done, moved me between two doors because the warehouse was full.

I dropped the trailer at one point to head over to Walmart for some grocery shopping, on my way back I was pulled over by the police. I was driving on a...


Refused at Hershey

Finally back in Ohio after a very stressful week at work with two trips to West Seneca. Something that really sucked. I had to do a split to make it to my appointment the first day, but that spot made it impossible to get back the next day in time for my appointment.

When you're late y...


Dryvan

Had a great start to the week until I went to Abbott to pick up a load to BJ in Massachusetts. They had it loaded on a dry van trailer, so the rest of the day pretty much sucked and it didn't help when the customer suddenly had stopped with overnight parking. It was like riding a bull without ...


Quakertown

I'm back with my Quakertown loads again, but this week I was also subject to a random drug test. I was called by my dispatcher Monday morning, wanting me to head into the office. No reason was given. Of course, that's a random drug test, but I've got nothing to fear.

I arrived at Kopp ...


Bakery load to Columbus

Finally back in Columbus after a very much stressful week at the eastcoast. My Thursday delivery of ice cream on Long Island was much delayed because of the previous delivery in Jamaica NY. When I was done I headed towards Vineland, but first a little pit stop at Loves in Bordentown for some f...


Lindenhurst

Today I'm in Lindenhurst out on Long Island to deliver another load of ice cream. I was close to running out of hours last night at the cold storage in Hazleton so I asked to drop my trailer and take my sleep elsewhere, which was fine. The live load got turned into pre-load.

I headed o...


Jamaica Avenue

This must be the tightest place so far, you can't really see it in the pictures, but to get my truck turned this way I had to go around a couple blocks.

I had a strategy for doing this, which of course failed once I got here. The streets are much tighter than what they look like on Goo...


The banana room place

I'm back again in New Jersey, and this time it took me too a new place, the PFS in Elizabeth and Wakefern aka "the banana room place".

I was too tired yesterday so I called it a night at Walmart in King of Prussia. I left there this morning around 5:30 to make sure I could get to my fi...


Plumbing and trucking

An exhausting weekend is over consisting of pretty much work and little sleep. I worked on Saturday, taking a load from AmerisourceBergen to Whitestown. I was back home around 16:30, so it turned out to be just a few minutes under a 10 hour day. Rest of the day and Sunday was plumbing in the l...


Some 30 lights later

It must have been like 30 lights or so from the company yard in Olive Branch MS to my next customer, the US Cold Storage in Covington TN.

 I got checked in on time last night for my Walmart delivery, but wasn't done before midnight, just after my 14 hour expired. There wasn't much...


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 ...


Performance foods

Finally made it to my destination here at Performance Food Services in Montgomery IL. I started later than normal yesterday. I was going to pick up a preloaded trailer in Streetsboro OH at 16:00.

I arrived at the destination around 1500 and the trailer was already done. I guess I could...


Such a long day

This has been a long day. After getting unloaded at Sysco in Jamesburg today I was notified that they refused two pallets of nutrition bars, 520 boxes to be exact.

I called the os&d to let them know and was waiting to find out what the shipper would like to do about it. 2 hours lat...


Back to Jamesburg

Another trip back to Wakefern Foods here in Jamesburg NJ again, this time with a load from Abbott nutritions.

It got late last night so the little sleep I had felt amazing, even more amazing to pull in here tonight for some more sleep. They have overnight parking here. I will deliver t...


Indiana on a Monday

Some kind of maintenance at Kopp Turkey has me going to Indianapolis to load up for Sysco in Columbus. 

It was nice to start a little later for a change. I left home around 11:30, picked up my trailer at Huber Heights, then headed towards Indianapolis.

I was loaded up fair...


Back in Dayton

Back in Dayton today. I got my load of bananas loaded up in Wilmington yesterday at 17:00, unfortunately, a couple of hours late.

 This made my 14-hour clock cut me off too early, but I did my best trying to get to Columbus. I pulled over at the big rest area in Hebron, 30 minutes...


Dead tired

I was dead tired last night when I got to the customer in Aberdeen. I got done around midnight and slept some more over at Walmart. It was much needed, I could barely function when I woke up at 7.

I was going to start earlier, but no chance. I did however have hours to it, hours I'd ga...


C and S

Just done with another Tuesday, after delivering the turkey leftovers from Kopp to Simmons, I went up to the US Cold Storage in Hazleton.

 My next trip was back to the well known C&S in Aberdeen, a huge mess of a customer to say at least, but sometimes you might have good luck...


What a day

I got some good sleep after my delivery last night, I went back to Diner 83 and slept until around 9. Woke up to a message from dispatch asking me to drop my empty at Abbott in Bethlehem.

After getting some food from the diner I started my trip up to Bethlehem to drop my trailer. It wa...


York

Started off this morning from the company yard in Carlisle, but first, it was time for a truck wash. It's been a few weeks since the last, which is well overdue and also pretty embarrassing, I really dislike a dirty truck.

Made my way over to Quakertown with my newly washed truck, thou...


Warmer weather

It was warmer weather in Dayton today, in the low 40, which is great after all these cold days.

Started at 8:00, went to pick up my trailer in Huber Heights as usual and headed down to Kopp turkey in Harrison, but the load wasn't ready. I waited until a few minutes past 11 before I cou...


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...


Ice storm

This week started with some fresh snow that came overnight from Sunday, but not too bad and I started like I normal would on a turkey load from Harrison.

The rest of the trip to Quakertown went pretty smooth, the snow kinda disappeared as I got further east and it eventually started to...


New England

It's been an interesting week with some trips up to the New England area. After my delivery in Connecticut on Wednesday I went back to Bethlehem PA for another load up to Medline in Uxbridge.

Uxbridge is a small place just a few miles south of Worcester and about 30 miles west of Bosto...


Going to Connecticut

Another Monday is done, didn't sleep too well last night because of a dog in the neighborhood spending his night out in 16 degrees. Poor pup! Was a lot of barking and woke up me around 2 am. I did however get back to ...


Johnson and Johnson

I'm back at Qspi to pick up a load tomorrow morning at 9am going to Johnson & Johnson in Mooresville IN.

 Earlier today I started off around 7:30 from Walmart in King of Prussia, I was headed up to Wakefern Foods in Jamesburg NJ. After reading the Google map reviews my expecta...


Great Tuesday

Despite the crazy weather and the amounts of snow that came the last couple days this has been a great Tuesday. I delivered the Turkey carcasses on time in Quakertown at 10:00am. Got a low key stress free load that was dropped in the Carlisle yard bank to Jamesburg NJ. Now I got like 13 hour w...


Winterstorm 2021

A massive amount of snow is coming down, started on Sunday. Wasn't too bad in Ohio, but here on the east coast it's just insane. Expecting up to 20 inches by Tuesday.

I parked at Knight's Carlisle yard as I usually do on Mondays. The whole yard has close to a foot of snow and of course...


Deadhead to Tennessee

Last night I had to pay $20 for a parking spot at TA in Cartersville GA. In the late afternoon yesterday my load switched and I had to deadhead over to Covington Tennessee from McDonough GA. It's almost 500 miles.

Started this morning at 8:00 a.m. and drove pretty much straight to Covi...


Georgia Georgia

Had the Monday off because of labor day, took out a vacation day for it so I didn't lose any money. started Tuesday morning in Columbus Ohio with a load from interstate Cold storage on Roberts road, to Kroger in Forest Park Georgia.

The cold storage was kind of slow getting me a door, ...


Made it to Columbus

I made it to the company yard in Columbus Ohio. I started this morning from Hunts Point markets in the Bronx, went down to Newark Delaware, and picked up my pharma load.

I was loaded up just before noon, then took the 95 south towards Baltimore and headed west on 70 over to Breezewood ...


Dangerous week?

I wonder if this week will be now dangerous than normal cause of all the protests around the country. Dayton had curfew at 9 p.m. this weekend, Columbus had at 10 p.m. While other cities like New York and Philadelphia were much worse.

Tomorrow I have a delivery in Port Washington and B...


Humid days

I love the humidity we had these last few days, feels like Florida. Actually, Pennsylvania is the second most humid state after Florida so it makes sense and I love it.

Now sitting here at the Blue Mountain travel plaza on the Pennsylvania turnpike being lazy, having a short break. I g...


Wonderful day

Another wonderful warm day here in northern Pennsylvania. I'm now at the US Cold Storage in Hazleton PA picking up a preloaded trailer going to C&S in Aberdeen MA. Not a long ride at all. Appointment is at 18:00. The receiving customer is average, but usually works out well. A nearby Walma...


Another hot week

Looks like we'll be getting a hot week, at least here around the nyc. Had my night at the rest area in Snow Shoe PA at usual and woke up to great weather. Traffic is also increasing here in the city which is not so good.

I got just two stops this week, one in Ridgewood and the other in...


Heading south

Today my trip it's going south, but not in a bad way. actually south from Hazleton Pennsylvania to Mechanicsville Virginia with a load for Supervalu.

Just pulled into the welcome Center here in Maryland for a 30 minute break. I recently discovered a new podcast that's pretty cool, it's...


Door 4

I learned that door #4 at Western Beef produce is tight today. Blindside with only an inch on each side when doors are open, but with some patience everything works out.

It's a beautiful day in NYC today, makes the day allot easier, but I'm really looking forward to call it a night up ...


No Bronx this week

No Bronx this week on my New York City delivery  which makes my day even shorter. just took the night last night here on the regular rest area in Danville Pennsylvania and I'm about to head the rest of the way now.

tomorrow I got a load from Johnson & Johnson in Florence New J...


Homebound

Another delivery finished in New York City, now having a little break at Walt Whitman travel plaza on the Jersey turnpike. I started a little too early this morning so I have time for this.

heading towards Newark in Delaware for a Siemens load back to Plainfield Indiana. Like I mention...


Week 14

It's week 14 already and we had a great weekend, really warm weather on Saturday. It was great, but thunderstorms came and ruined some of it, but turned well later on. Sunday was good too.

Monday was another day back to work and New York City. They're still struggling up there and most...


The curve is not flattening

The curve that's supposed to flatten is just increasing here in New York City and the president wants to open the country very soon. Go figure. The numbers here are doubling every three days now and pretty much everyone I see around me is wearing masks.

You can feel the anxiety is stro...


Reefer problems

Been having some issues with the reefer on this trailer, it randomly shutting off due to an alternator/battery error so I decided it was time to fix it, so here I am at TA in Wheeling WV.

My banana load is scheduled for delivery tomorrow at Walmart DC in Washington Court House at 4 am....


White Toque

Haven't been able up update very much lately on this blog, mainly because I've been busy with work, my project and washing my hands. 

Things are really getting crazy over here now, they're shutting literally down everything except grocery stores and pharmacies. It's really scary t...


Same old, same old

Nothing new is going on here, still doing these New York City loads on Mondays and Tuesdays. My truck was turned in last week for body work, scheduled to be done when I arrived on Thursday, but it wasn't. Ended up in Indianapolis with a load dropped at Johnson & Johnson. I was supposed to ...


Beautiful day in Bronx

I just woke up to a beautiful day here in the Bronx. The sun is shining the sky is blue and the temperature is in the 50s.

I got done very late yesterday, the customers were really busy and I wasn't up here before 6:30. That's like 3,5 hours later than normal. My next load is from Flor...


Buying another house

Been looking for a house to buy the last couple of months found a couple but didn't move fast enough to get any. I'm already approved so everything should be ready. At least I'm learning the market and what to look for.

One was here in Dayton oh, Grafton Hill in fact. A historic, nice ...


Pineapples

Started this morning from Hunts Point produce market in the Bronx, had a load of pineapples going from Del Monte in Gloucester City New Jersey to Columbus Ohio.

Arrived just before noon and it was totally packed there. Trucks were lined up all over the place and their computer systems ...


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 ...


Kentucky

Got a load from Kentucky at the end of the week, with 3 stops. Two in Indiana and one in Michigan. Since I got here late I had to pay $76 late fee and they spent literally all day to load me.

Now it's almost 11 pm and in 45 minutes I've got an 8+2 split started and will head up to my f...


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...


Axle alignment and b service

Well, the Dunkin donuts load to Ohio got canceled and replaced with a banana load from Gloucester City to Columbus instead. To me, that was a good deal. I also got called in for a B service and axle alignment.

Since I started out in the Bronx I didn't make it all the way back but made ...


Weekend work with issues

I was asked to work the weekend this time and I accepted. It was another produce load from Springfield Ohio to Hunts Point Market in the Bronx. I made it to the Delaware Water Gap on Saturday where I shut down. Drove the next 80 miles Sunday morning, starting 4 a.m.

I arrived at 6 a.m....


Watermelons

I had watermelons today, going from Gloucester to Jessup in Maryland. I started my day in the Bronx and headed down towards Philadelphia around 9 am. 

On my way down I stopped at Love's in Bordentown for lunch. Just after noon, I arrived at the Del Monte in Gloucester City. I didn...


Hectic and stressful

These NYC loads are really busy and hectic. I miss my old loads to Spring City, those were the good times.  Hopefully, they can find me something back there again soon.

 Today I started about 4 hours from my 1st stop and was arriving 3 hours late. Thankfully next week I will ...


Not enough hours

There are not enough hours to go from Dayton to Port Washington New York. Today I started at noon from home and I went straight over to Springfield to pick up my trailer. It was done at the usual time like 1-2 p.m.

With a delivery appointment at 9 a.m. next morning I need to be parked ...


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...


Finally here

After taking my night at a travel plaza on i-80 in Ohio I started relatively early. Somewhere between 8-9 this morning. I drove for a couple hours before i decided it was time for a late breakfast and shower, so I eventually pulled into Loves just off i-280.

it's always great with a sh...


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...


A long day

I woke up at 2 am this morning, feeling super tired.  I showed up at Walmart security gate at 2:30 but was told I couldn't check in before 3:00 a.m. So I had no other choice than head back and wait another 30 minutes.

 When I finally got in, the unloading itself was pretty fa...


Walmart DC Gordonsville

Started my day 8:30 from TA in Bordentown, filled up the 60 gallons required for free parking and headed down towards Gloucester City to pick up my banana load.

I arrived just in time, a few minutes before 10. Checked in and less than 20 minutes later I was assigned to a door. The bana...


Bordentown with Domino's

Done with the deliveries in New York, but didn't get out fast enough to make it down to pickup my banana load in Gloucester, so it got picked up by somebody else. Instead I got another banana load to Walmart in Gordonsville VA, picking up tomorrow from glouchester at 10 am. A real bummer being...


Going west with Siemens

Getting back to my regular schedule looks like, got this Siemens load from Newark DE to Plainfield IN today. It's been a few beautiful days out east, but on my way back west I was running into some gross weather around Somerset.

Wind was getting worse with fog, snow and rain. Temperatu...


The lost load

I was up early and didn't get much sleep last night, but i slept well for a few hours. The produce load out from Springfield was supposed to be pre-loaded at 13:00, I showed up on time and they'd just put the trailer in the door.

Trailer was done loaded between 15:00-16:00 so i left so...


Cliff bar baking company

Got the OS&D worked out this morning and now I got the cab full of small cups of frozen orange juice. 384 to be exact. I'll bring them home and drink them slowly. 

Last load before weekend was a load that was dropped in the yard, some organic syrup to Cliff Baking company, loc...


Gordon Foodservice

Woke up this morning, parked at the shoulder on the on-ramp to I78 just by Loves in Hamburg PA. I was done late at Gregory Packaging and was running low on hours. As we all know; not easy to find parking when it gets late.

Drove straight to Gordon Foodservice in Springfield with only o...


Off to New Jersey

The day went pretty smooth, got started with my first delivery around 9, then headed over to Foodnation where i did my second delivery an hour before appointment time. Was done at 1400, then off to Hunt Point market where I was scheduled for 18:00. 

Now I'm back in New Jersey. Fou...

Carbondale to Joliet

After my New York deliveries I went straight over to Carbondale PA to pickup a load from Millennium Packaging services going to Mars at the DHL plant in Elwood IL.

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.

 


A weekend in Bronx

After delivery on Sunday morning in Bronx I had no other load scheduled so I got stuck there for the rest of the weekend. I was way too optimistic to think that I would have a load on Sunday. 

Not very fun to hang around there for the whole Sunday, but Monday morning I got a load ...


Finally in Bronx

After a few hours delay I finally got my PO numbers right and I could continue my day. I'm finally here at Hunts Point market in Bronx. Rolled in the gate at 9 p.m.

Now I just have to stay here and wait until tomorrow morning where I will be unloading at 8 a.m. I currently don't have a...


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...


First sign of Christmas

First sign of Christmas was early, seems like it's getting earlier for every year, but the first taste of Christmas was today after buying a box of gingerbread cookies at Walmart.

Now I like to bake, but it's been a while and every time I attempted to make gingerbread cookies they pret...


Another Monday going east

Another Monday and I'm heading east again after a snowy weekend in Dayton. At least from Sunday with more snow Monday afternoon. Driving conditions were ok, but snow started to accumulate on i70 in Indiana, got better at I reached into Ohio. No delays at all and no accidents either. So all in ...


Just another Thursday with pharma

It was a very short day yesterday, parked overnight at Walmart. Enjoying the evening with dinner and Netflix.

Looking for an empty

Got one of these favorite loads from QPSI in Florence NJ today that goes to Johnson & Johnson in Tobyhanna, but you better be on time when picking them up else you'll be sitting over there all day.

Snowy day

I'm back at Boar's Head in Spring City and it seems to be a snowy day. started very late like 1:30 p.m. from New Castle Indiana yesterday and arrived in Springa City this morning at 12:30 a.m.

Once I'm done here I'll be heading down to Walmart again to do s...


From Baltimore to California

A good week so far, delivered my Boar's Head load up in Spring City and had an extended rest outside Walmart in King of Prussia. 

Now I'm at MTC logistics down in Baltimore waiting for my load. The appointment was 1400 and I arrived on time but still I got to wait for a door. Not ...


Back to Pennsylvania

After a day in New York I had finished my deliveries and spent the night at Hunts Point market.

The next day I found my way down to TMI trading in Brooklyn, at first a very intimidating place cause of the way you need to back in. 90 degrees from the street and into a garage. Not too mu...


Hunts Point produce market

Then we're coming to an end for this trip. Finally here at Hunts Point market with a delivery appointment tonight at 1830. 

Missed a turn when going up here from Ridgewood, was supposed to get onto 278, instead I didn't pay attention and went onto 95s instead. BIG MISTAKE! It was ...


Canada Dry

Must be my first load ever with Canada Dry, picked up yesterday from Pittston with an 1130 appointment. Now sitting here waiting to get unloaded at the Canada Dry location in Landover.

I parked about an hour away yesterday cause there's no place to park down here that I know of, but on...


Hello again

Not much have changed since my last entry, but it's time with an update anyway. Basically the only changes is that I now got a new truck.

Still doing my Boar's Head loads from New Castle to Spring City as usual and I love it. Wednesday after my drop is a little bit random from one week...


Karma got me

Karma got me today, I was being cut off by a four-wheeler and it kind of made me a little mad so I honked at him for a while. Try to make him uncomfortable while he was working on destroying his own car.

Nothing happened though, we came out of it with no damages except for a little dam...


Another pharma load

Another load from Siemens to Siemens with vials. This is a standard load back to the Midwest or Plainfield Indiana where it's actually going. It's a good load and don't weigh much more than 14,000 lbs. Axles all the way to the front and let's roll. 

The location in Newark where we...


Boars Head dedicated

Haven't been much updates here recently due to the fact I'm not over the road anymore, but doing a dedicated run for Boar's Head between New Castle Indiana and Groveport Ohio. Been doing this since March 2018.


Boar's Head

Got late with my ice cream load to Kroger. Checked in at 5:30am and left 9:30pm. Had just enough time or maybe a little short on time for my next load. 

It was a preloaded trailer at Boar's Head in New Castle Indiana and i made it over there around midnight, checked in and got the...


Back to Knight

After six months with Pepsi oi was time to go back over the road again, but only regional this time. At least for now. 

Got an older truck with about 400,000 miles on it, but that don't matter cause it's a Volvo with ishift.

Spent the first two evenings in it cleaning all ...


Hutchinson KS

Parked last night at TA Beto Junction, wouldn't have made it down here yesterday anyway. A crazy thunderstorm rolled in later that night and made it pretty cozy in my can trying to sleep zzzz

Woke up after a 10 and drove the rest of the way down to Tyson in Hutchinson and delivered.

Friendliest store in town ?

Early start today with a 5am appointment at Schnuks Distribution. I wasn't sure whether they had overnight parking or not here so I parked at Loves just 9 miles away last night. 

When I got here they have a big parking lot with overnight parking just outside the gates. Good to kno...


Happy Sunday

The opening hours had changed here at Anthony's so I came to closed doors. I wasn't the only one. Another Knight truck called me up on the cb and told me they changed their hours so I just parked and went to sleep.

Around 4:30 I woke up to knocking on my door, half asleep i worked myse...

Hometime

I was pretty sure i was gonna make it home by on time until I got this load to Pontoon Beach were I ended up with no options other than going down to St Louis to pick up a load going west. With less than three days to my hometime I decided not to go further than Kansas City.

Fresh Express in Harrisburg

Was raining heavy last night in northern Florida on i95, decided it was time to call it a night, but I wasn't the only one thinking of that. All the rest areas were full, but without much choise to go any further I found a questionable spot there. Started this morning just before 8, but first ...


Florida Produce

Stopped for the night at a Loves truckstop here in St Louis Missouri side of town. I'm almost at my destination, only 550 some miles left.

Off to Virginia

Finally, I'm able to make an update to my logbook again after several weeks with nothing. I had a few trips since my last update, then I headed home for one-week hometime. Which was spent building a deck. I didn't quite finish, but I will do it next time.

I went back to work on the 27t...


Reset in Las Vegas

This Friday turned to shit, went with my dirty truck to Steamboat truckwash in phoenix to wash it. They charge more than $70 for a regular truck wash. Their cheaper option to $41 doesn't include any aluminum cleaning.

After I left I noticed my truck had streaks of soap and dirt all ove...


San Diego in snow

Started out from Yuma AZ this morning with very little sleep due to Netflix watching and smartphone mania last night. Made my way  almost to San Diego then I ran into some really slick roads, lots of melted snow that turned to ice and wet pavement that was frozen. It was the pass about 50...


Snowstorms

Parked last night at Petro in Wells NV after driving from Hermiston and loaded up in Caldwell. Kinda boring place and no signal on my cellphone didn't make it any better. Watched TV, found four local channels with just crap except from one with an old family guy cartoon.

Woke up next m...

Amarillo tonight

Had a terrible night of sleep, truck ran out of battery. I started to idle then went back to bed, but 5 minutes later the idle alarm goes off and I have to get back up from the bed to either disable it or shut off the truck. Did this probably 3-4 times thru the night. I should just have let it...

Fruit from the south

I was a little behind on this load due to the Last shipper in Nogales, but I'm now back on schedule. Less than 600 miles left means I will deliver to Anthony Marano on time somewhere between 1800 and midnight tomorrow in Chicago.

 


Christmas hometime with an unexpected twist

My hometime this year for Christmas got longer than expected due to the extraction of three wisdom's teeth. It was absolutely my worst dentist appointment ever.

I was at home for a week longer than planned due to the enormous pain I had, but Tuesday January 3rd I had to go back for wor...


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...

Delivery was at Walmart in Temple, TX. Now...

Good thing they had cause my trailer was too heavy in the front, eve...


From Cali to Oregon

A little late because I decided in the last minute to do an inspection on my truck at the Fontana yard, but there were no problems or delays at the receiver because of it so I'm good.

It's crazy tight and busy in here, probably one of the worst places I've been to. Now just got into a ...


Amarillo to California

On my way back west now to Fontana California with a load I picked up in Amarillo from another driver. We just switched trailers, he didn't wanna go west and I didn't wanna go east just yet.

Beef to Mexico

I'm back here again to try get this beef unloaded. Showed up at 8 like I was told to and waited for about 4 hours then they were ready. They were actually ready at the same time the other truck pulled in here so I guess that's the one taking it into Mexico. From what I understand when I talked...


Mexican trouble

I've got to the consigne on time today, but didn't help much cause they couldn't unload before they got approval from the customs in Mexico. They speak pretty much only spanish where I was, but they had one guy there they used to translate. Now I'm at the Pilot just 5 miles away waiting until ...


2016-10-30 21:21:26

Hit and run victim

Someone performed a little hit and run on me yesterday. I was unable to get their info cause by the time I got outside I saw him disappear. Called the police and filled a report, but chances to find the guy were slim. It was only minor damages on my driver side mirror.

Earlier today we completed the long trip we ha...


2016-09-29 11:54:37

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...

Meat for Forth Worth

Was almost out of hours yesterday and no idea where to park, both Loves and a TA down here in Forth Worth on I35 were packed. All the reserved spots were taken too. I managed to find a pretty nice independent truckstop where I paid $10 for parking,  but it's worth it. Actually a great pla...

Ran out on my 70 hour today, still managed to do my two deliveries for Albertsons here in Las Vegas. Had to look through the whole week for unnecessary on-duty time to convert to off-duty. I still have all the pre-trip's and some other on-duty so I guess its all good. Now I'm just a few blocks...

Walmart New Albany

Showed up at 1400 for my appointment at Walmart in New Albany. Checked in and got a door. This is the view from the truckers lounge they got here. It's actually just a small nasty bathroom. Pretty miserable!

The big test (to get in)

My new load goes to Florida with a stop in North Carolina. I will be loading at Solutia in Springfield MA. When I got here I had to watch a video and pass a quiz to be able to enter. When I first got in it was pretty much like a new quiz to find my way through it all with no signs anywhere!


Methuen delivery

Good morning, this is part of my breakfast, there was a youhurt too. Im not much of a big eater in the morning, so this is it. My load will be delivered tomorrow at Methuen MA, only 320 some miles left. Could have drove longer yesterday, but decided to park around 7:30pm here at Flying J on I9...

2015-12-12 01:00:00

Started early this morning to get my 2 stop load to Macys in Cheshire CT, got lucky and was told to drop the trailer on my first stop. No empty reefers there so I went over to my second stop anyway to look and found the one in the picture. It was pretty messed up and dirty, but otherwise fine,...
