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...


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...


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...


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...


Bananas to Columbus

Soon weekend, just gonna shake off these bananas then head across the street and get a trailer loaded up for another driver.


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...


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 ...


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 ...


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...


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...


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...


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 ...


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...


2017-08-19 22:25:52

Picked up a banana load from Port Manatee in Palmetto FL Thursday afternoon, then used the remaining hours and drove 75 up north across the Georgia stateline and took my night at the flying J on exit 2.

Started early next day, but my day was limited by the 70 hour limit so I had only 7...


The banana room

It's been a while, but here I am with my next blog update. I'm now with a load of bananas at Wakefern in Newark NJ. They do have lots of overnight street parking and first come first serve. Wish I knew that last night.

Just received the phone call, now about to move over to door #4.


Bananas for going home

Finally here at Del Monte Columbus OH delivering my last load after 4 week's on the road. I stopped at home last Saturday for a few hours. This load of bananas is coming from Del Monte in Gloucester City PA.

They seemed pretty busy here today,  but I hope they can get me unloaded ...
