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 ...


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 ...


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...


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 ...


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 ...


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...


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....


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 ...


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...


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...


Port Washington

Another trip to New York again this week. I was actually schedule for my regular route to Spring City. Oh well!

Started late today, was waiting at home for a guy to give me an estimate on insulating the house, but he got late so i rescheduled for next Monday instead.

Then I hea...


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...


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 ...
