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...


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...


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...


Target

Dispatch called and changed my load so I didn't have to go all the way over to Mooresville Indiana. Instead I dropped a load in the Columbus yard and picked up another one to Target in West Jefferson. Just 20 minutes away. The appointment is at 1:30 p.m. and hopefully, I'll be home much earlie...


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...


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.

Tomorrow I'm picking up a load in the afternoon from Indianapolis over to West Jefferson. Delivers at the Target warehouse at Saturday 5:30 a.m.


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 ...

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.

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.

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...
