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...


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...


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...


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...


Weekends work

Seems like I'm back at the dog food factory again, but this time on a Friday. I decided to work this weekend so I got this load back out east yesterday, delivering today. The delivery of Velvet ice cream yesterday took longer than expected so I got short on my 14, which had me park early in a ...


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.

No sleep again

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


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 ...


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...


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 ...


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...


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...


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...


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, ...

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 ...

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...


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 ...

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 ...

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

2016-05-09 11:38:32

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...


Wild Wild West Las Vegas

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...


Tim Horton like a hidden gem

Now it's time for some food. It's not often you find Tim Horton on a truckstop but tonight I did. Woke up on the rest area near the SC and VA stateline. Drove from there to here, just a few miles from Detroit. I have no appointment for this load yet, so no stress. My DM will call me once he kn...


Saved by the bell or the rest area

Back to work after some time at home can be hard. The day started chaotic, but turned out pretty good anyway. I was northbound on 65 when I thought it was time to check my clock. Wow only 10 minutes left before my 30 minutes break. Was sure there was gonna be a violation, but 7 minutes ah...


Dryvan to Macy's
