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...


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...


Just 80 miles

I arrived 2 hours ahead of my appointment on this load and was greeted by a very friendly security girl down at Dreyer's Great Ice Cream.

 3 hours later, they had a door for me. I tried to reach it by using PC/yard move, but the dumb Sonar was able to screw that.

Thankfull...


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...


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...


BESTEK 300W Power Inverter DC 12V

I bought this inverter in the summer of 2019 and it's still working great to run my blueray and tv in my truck. High-quality product and it's very quiet. In fact, you cant hear it at all when running. So far this one has outlived the two I bought from Powerdrive. The black and yellow ones sold...


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...


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.

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


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 ...


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...


Siemens Delaware

Got waked up by a phone call early this morning, I should have turned the volume down I guess. I do however use the wind-down and sleep monitoring on my phone, but they called just after 6 which is outside the window.

There was a driver unable to pick up his load from Siemens, I've don...


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...


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 ...


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...


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...


Saturday work

I worked this weekend, was a great day with a blue sky and sun. Started from home around 8, went to pick up my preloaded trailer in Lockbourne OH. I arrived at the customer, but the trailer wasn't really preloaded after all. 

After a little less than an hour I was ready to go, but...


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...


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...


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, ...


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...


Ready for the weekend

Now I'm really ready for the weekend, the weather has been great over here on the east coast, but not so good in the area around home from what I've been hearing.

Used about half my day to get up to this customer from my last night's delivery in Mechanicsville VA. At least I have a few...


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...


Early night

I parked pretty early last night, around 8 at the New Stanton travel plaza. Was able to get a 12-hour down and it was much needed. I'm feeling pretty good now and I've got about seven hours from here and over to Plainfield Indiana.

Just after the sideling travel plaza last night there ...


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...


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...


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...


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...


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...


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...


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...


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...


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...


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.

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...


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...

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.

St Louis

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.

From Boise with layover in Vegas

Haven't been able to post much the last few days cause of my laptop having issues. Keyboard stopped working and even after removing the keyboard one key is still continuously repeating itself so it's not much to do. I suspect it to be a motherboard issue unfortunately.

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...


From rain to chain

It started with rain and ended with chains. This load with soda from Sacramento to Spokane Valley suddenly turned into a real winter story.

Earlier on that evening when I was rolling out of Sacramento fully loaded with soda, it got dark and the rain was pouring down. I was getting tire...


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...

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...

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...

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...

Meat for Forth Worth

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...
