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...


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...


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...


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...


Performance foods

Finally made it to my destination here at Performance Food Services in Montgomery IL. I started later than normal yesterday. I was going to pick up a preloaded trailer in Streetsboro OH at 16:00.

I arrived at the destination around 1500 and the trailer was already done. I guess I could...


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...


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...


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...


Wash line

Then I'm in the washing line at Blue Beacon here in Bordentown after delivering to quick stops in New York City yesterday. The day went fast up there and I spent the night here in Bordentown. I just got up at 7 the wait is long.

I haven't had any updates on my blog lately, simply becau...


Watermelons

I had watermelons today, going from Gloucester to Jessup in Maryland. I started my day in the Bronx and headed down towards Philadelphia around 9 am. 

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...


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...


Quick week

The last few weeks have gone by really fast thanks to late Monday afternoon starts with loads from Boars Head. Picking up from New Castle IN to Groveport OH then back for another one to Spring City PA.

This week was just the same almost, except from an extra load going from the Columbu...


Friendliest store in town ?

Early start today with a 5am appointment at Schnuks Distribution. I wasn't sure whether they had overnight parking or not here so I parked at Loves just 9 miles away last night. 

When I got here they have a big parking lot with overnight parking just outside the gates. Good to kno...


Fries from Caldwell

Started this morning from the Space Age travel center, picked up an empty trailer from Walmart in Hermiston then headed south towards Caldwell ID. 

About 260 miles later I arrived at Simplot, checked in and got loaded pretty quick. They also had a scale there, but I scaled again o...


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...


2015-12-18 01:00:00

Got here 1,5 hours before appointment, checked in with the guard and went around the building and delivered my paperwork. On my way back out to wait for my appointment they come after me and said they could unload me right now. Thats awesome, now just waiting for my paperwork which seems to take ...
