Jack and Jill

After the usual Quakertown delivery, I took a 7/3 split to make sure I could get down to Swedesboro the same night to be ready for my 6 am delivery on Wednesday. I was actually supposed to go straight to Hazleton to pick it up after since it should have been ready by noon on Tuesday. It wasn't...


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 ...


Urgent load

It took literally forever yesterday getting unloaded up in Quakertown, but no worries. I got another 10 hour break down, which was needed because my planned delivery next day in Richmond Hill NY got canceled, they needed a produce load from Florida to be delivered in Elizabeth NJ and a second ...


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...


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...


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...


Harrington Delaware

I'm back here again, started at 2200 last night, headed up to the cold storage in Hazleton to pick up my preloaded trailer, but there was a new inexperienced guy in the guard shack that had no clue what was going on and couldn't find my bills or my trailer. He told me to leave and come back la...


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 ...


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...


Tops frozen distribution

Got a load up to Tops frozen distribution center in west Seneca yesterday afternoon, and it looks like they want me so one more tomorrow. Not too excited about it since it's mostly backroads from Hazleton and up here with an average speed of 35-40 mph.

I guess we'll see how it turns ou...


Sleepless weekend

Worked two-night shifts over the weekend then headed to Pennsylvania Monday morning. Literally no sleep since Sunday 1 pm until Monday 10 pm. At least my paycheck will look good this week.

I arrived early at Simmons in Quakertown on Tuesday. Slept really well last night and the day tur...


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 ...


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...


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...


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...


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...


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...


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...


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...


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...


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...


Bethlehem to Monroe

It's been awhile since I updated but I'm still over the road doing my usual stuff. Today I'm going to u.s. Cold storage in Bethlehem to pick up a little load over to Costco in Monroe township New Jersey


Good morning from New Stanton

Good morning, there's been a while since I updated. it's been kind of busy lately with a lot of stuff going on at home and at work. I did the nyc as usual and then the rare noodles load from TMI in Brooklyn too Harrisburg. Was lucky and got it delivered and unloaded by 11pm same day even when ...


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...


Finally here

Finally here in Plainfield Indiana with the Siemens load. Getting unloaded now as I type. 

The drive over here was great, beautiful weather, but a lot of retarded drivers out there now. Obviously people are not staying home anymore.

Took my night 20 miles some east of Colu...


Snowshoe

I'm back at the rest area in Snowshoe Pennsylvania, ready call it a night. They have been good and pretty much like any other Monday. Milo that Springfield was slightly delayed but not too bad. 

I'm about 4 hours away from New York and I'll be doing that driving in the morning. Th...


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 ...


Bensalem

Then I'm back at Bensalem again, finished my produce load in the Bronx last night, actually a little earlier than usual. Spent the night watching "don't fuck with cats" and had dinner. The show is dark but pretty good.

This morning I started just around 7 and went down to Qpsi in Flore...


Finally Friday

It's finally Friday again, ended my day early yesterday right after I dropped off the Siemens load. I was sitting at the yard all night watching Netflix, coding on the bicycle project, and eating pizza. It's wonderful not being paid by the miles, no need to worry about downtime. Only joy!

...

Late weekend

It's getting a late weekend this time because of my target delivery here at Target distribution Center in West Jefferson at 5:30 a.m. this morning.

Yesterday I was waiting pretty much the whole day at the Indianapolis yard, I eventually headed down to canara around noon for my 3 p.m. a...


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...


Another long day

It was another long day yesterday, I started the day at Hunts Point in Bronx drow down to qpsi for a load,  then headed all the way over here to Dayton Ohio and called it at night. It was a good run and it was good to get parked.

My previous dispatch with a local East coast run go...


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...


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 ...


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....

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...


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...


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...


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...


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...


Gregory Packaging

I showed up to Qpsi just over 9, got loaded and ready to go by 11.  The trailer was dropped in Tobyhanna a few hours later, to no surprise they had no empties up there.

I contacted dispatch who routed me down to Abbott in Bethlehem PA for one. They yard jockey wouldn't let me have...

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...

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...


Back to Spring City again

Another week and I'm back to Spring City again with another Boars Head load. My previous load on Monday got cancelled so I had plenty of time to deliver this one, but first I needed to head into service in Columbus to fix my air condition. It now works and it feels great.

The customer ...

It's been a real winter for once around where I've traveled. Also lots of snow been coming down. I'm so ready for the weekend and I also had some bad luck this week getting a staph/mrsa infection on my skin around the face.

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...


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...

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 ...


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 ...

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.

Pine apples from Costa Rica to Columbus OH. The ship came in around 2200 and I checked in at 2330. Since all the pine apples has to be unloaded and inspected by US government its needless to say I was too early and my midnight appointment were going to be rescheduled. I went back to the truck ...

Been sitting here at the TA in Bloomsbury since yesterday. Think I just passed 24 hours too. No load yesterday and nothing so far today! Hopefully something shows up soon cause this is boring and I'm not earning shit by sitting like this!
