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 hours to drive. It was just enough to get me up to the Pilot at Mounteagle in Tennessee. I shut down there around 1500 and drove the rest of my trip the next day.

Before heading up to Anthony Marano in Chicago I stopped to meet my wife that came to meet me and to bring Pandora home. A couple of hours later I was on my way up to Chicago and now I'm here ending my trip.

We went back to Niagara falls after 5 years since last time. It was great, but my hometime is now over. It was a long weekend.

Now I'm at Walgreens distribution center in Jupiter, Florida, but unfortunately my next trip will take me back up to Maryland which reminds me of the upcoming boat show in Annapolis in October. I'm excited.

Buy the way, these guys dropped by for a visit while waiting at the dock today.


Friday, April 7th 2017

Been a while since i posted on my blog, been just short trips recently and also some extra couple days home due to shortage in loads. Now I've been in Georgia with a tcalled load from Pennsylvania and some more tcalled loads in Atlanta. Finally I got something better that took me to Florida.

I'm now at Del Monte in Palmetto fl with a load delivering to Food Lion in Salisbury nc on Sunday.

Went back to Hazleton on Friday with a drop delivere on Saturday, then went down to Flying J near Carlisle on US11 and took my night there. It was early, not even 17:00 when I parked. This morning I got up and went down south on I81 to exit 37 where I got a live load from Unilever going west to Pontoon Beach IL. Thats pretty much like Saint Louis so in this case Illinois wasnt so bad news after all.

It was a nice drive today from the shipper, it took me about 2 hours to get loaded and I made it to the Indianapolis yard with just 5 minutes left on my 14 hour. Now I'm here just about ready for bed and do the last 280 miles tomorrow with a delivery at 17:00. I've got plenty of time to make that so there wont be an early start on me tomorrow!

Was raining heavy last night in northern Florida on i95, decided it was time to call it a night, but I wasn't the only one thinking of that. All the rest areas were full, but without much choise to go any further I found a questionable spot there. Started this morning just before 8, but first I had to slide my tandems one hole back as I forgot to do the night before.

The shipper down in Belle Glade loaded me pretty heavy in the front, I was exactly 34,000 lbs on truck and trailer tandems with less than a quarter tank and me being lazy and gambling I picked a scale too far away to check my weight. I should know better lol

Anyway, I've been planning my route accordingly, making sure I dont pass any scales with more than quarter tank of fuel. Now I'm at this rest area in Virginia with less than 300 miles left so I'm feeling good about this. Will start tomorrow and with a little luck with the morning rush thru Washington and Baltimore I should be right on time for my drop appointment.


Monday, March 13th 2017

Picking up a load for Fresh Express here at TKM farms in Belle Glade FL now, worst customer service I've seen in a long time performed by the two girls in shipping and receiving. Got here on time, but still waiting. According to Google Map reviews of the location I may have a long wait ahead of me.

The weather down here in Florida is of course great, its even great when its raining . Hometime is also coming up soon and I've got more stuff on the deck to finish so the dogs can use it.


Thursday, March 9th 2017

On my way down to Russelville yesterday afternoon I ran into problems with my weekly 70 hour limit again, I've been to busy with the previous loads so I made it to a rest-area in Ozark AR. Spent my night there and took of next morning the last 50 minutes to Russelville and did my delivery. A live unload, I could have dropped it but they only had a Kool Trans trailer and I didnt want it and I had no more loads that day either because of my 70.

Spent a few hours up on the Pilot in Russelville when my new driver manager called me with a load picking up in Forth Smith early next morning, there was no need to wait so I just left for Fort Smith. Now Im on  the Pilot in Roland OK just off i-40. Customer is only 5 miles away from here

Next pickup will be in Heavener OK soon after the other then I'm of to Winter Gardens FL.


Saturday, March 4th 2017

Spent the Friday night on a tiny pilot truckstop just outside of Miami. Started early this morning at 5am, now at my second break on a rest area in Georgia.

Three more hours left on my clock, will park early so I can start early again tomorrow

Delivery is 1700 at Walmart in Mankato MN on Monday. 


Friday, March 3rd 2017

Now I'm here at Martin Brower in Pompano Beach FL. A little tight to get in and not much better inside, but why do I care ? I'm in Florida again! Got backed into door #5 and the guy came out and cut the bolt seal on my doors. An hour later I was empty and ready to head for my next pickup in Medley FL. Picking up a load of bagels there to Walmart in Mankato MN.

The weather is beautful here, its even beautiful when it rains here, but today the sky is blue and sun is shining and have a mid 70 temperature. When I parked up near Fort Pierce yesterday it was above 90 degrees. Absoultely fantastic. Just can't get enough of this state.


Thursday, March 2nd 2017

On my way to Florida now, just entered the welcome center for a well deserved break lol.

My load goes to Pompano Beach, near Fort Lauderdale and Miami. Never been so far south in Florida so I'm excited. I can already feel the paradise feeling here at the welcome center near the Georgia Florida state line.


Saturday, January 14th 2017

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 idle thru the night instead. Woke up around 0800 more tired than before I went to bed.

Drove about 7 hours straight to Erick OK to fill up fuel and get some quick lunch which consisted of a danish pastry with raspberry and some kind of cream and a bottle of lemonade. The rain and thunderstorms were with me all the way from Springfield and down to Amarillo wherer I got tired and just wanted to shut down. I pulled of on exit 74 to Loves and parked. Now just sitting here, dont feel any tired of course so I might as well watch some Netflix before I finaly hit the bed.


Tuesday, January 10th 2017

Its been a pretty busy week apparently, I'm out of my 70 hours again and this time not even a single hour gained next day. I unloaded and spent the night on the streets outside Anthony Marano last night.

Drove down to Loves in South Holland next morning to finish the rest of my reset. I'm still here watching the Blacklist on Netflix and just waiting it out.

Tomorrow my reset will be completed and I'll be back on the road again. Hopefully westbound.


Monday, November 14th 2016

On my way back west now to Fontana California with a load I picked up in Amarillo from another driver. We just switched trailers, he didn't wanna go west and I didn't wanna go east just yet.

Now having my break at my watering hole here at the Flying J in Kingman AZ. I've got about 5 more hours to drive today. No stress, it's still early.


Wednesday, November 9th 2016

Woke up this morning with a new president. Was pretty tired last night, but tried watching the election on tv, but I failed and fell asleep.

Drove 8 hours straight to Loves in Las Cruces, filled up my tanks, had a short break and drove another two hours to Flying J here in Lordsburg, NM.

I have about 200 miles left to Nogales so it's gonna be an early start tomorrow. My appointment is no later than 11am on Thursday.


Saturday, March 19th 2016

The load was done earlier than expected, so at 10am I had allready picked up the trailer and was on my way south on I94. Fueled up a few hours later in Troy IL and kept driving for a couple of more hours until I decided to park at Flying J on exit 226 on I44.

I will have about 590 miles to drive in the morning,  my first out of four deliveries is at Keen Meat in Fort Worth TX. The next three deliveries are in Houston. 

Will be watching a movie here at the truckstop tonight. :)


Tuesday, January 12th 2016

Loaded up a new load from Gaffney SC to Houston TX. On the picture some afternoon traffic jam in Atlanta GA. Now just done with my breakfast at Flying J in Hope Hull AL. I've got about 600 miles left and delivery is tomorrow the 13th at 2100.


Thursday, January 7th 2016

I'm now at the Flying J in Matthews MO. Loaded up on Kraft in Champaign IL yesterday to Walmart in New Albany MS. Appointment time is 15:00 and I'm 4 hours away. No need to rush cause they won't let me in before an hour ahead of appointment time. Not so cold this morning, about 48F. Also got my last week's pay which is very frustrating. No wonder the trucking industry in this country is in lack of drivers when you actually gets more by working for a fast food chain!!


Thursday, December 17th 2015

Got my load from JJ snacks yesterday. Was done loaded and ready to roll 15:35. I arrived at noon, because of roadwork and no right and left turns were allowed I spent about 40 minutes on that last quarter mile which turned into 5 miles. I'm now slightly behind schedule, but not to bad. Shutting down in Brunswick GA. Delivery at 11:00 tomorrow in Orlando, about 4 hours from here.


Tuesday, December 15th 2015

Time to sleep now, about 30 minutes away from consignee, will be there tomorrow at 9. Then my next load will be picked up in the same area for delivery in Orlando on Friday.


Monday, December 14th 2015

Good morning, this is part of my breakfast, there was a youhurt too. Im not much of a big eater in the morning, so this is it. My load will be delivered tomorrow at Methuen MA, only 320 some miles left. Could have drove longer yesterday, but decided to park around 7:30pm here at Flying J on I95 exit 100.


Sunday, December 13th 2015

Waited a few hours, then went to sleep. Woke up next morning and load was ready. This is taken on my way out. Now I'm at the Flying J on I95 exit 100. Time for bed..


Friday, December 11th 2015

Just parked at Pilot on I10 exit 343 in Florida. My last stop on this load is just a few miles away. Had my appointment rescheduled, but not before tomorrow anyway. At least it'll be in the morning and not afternoon. Also got a preplan that will take me back to Budweiser in Jacksonville and back up north on 95 to North Carolina.


Saturday, December 12th 2015

Started early today from Flying J and drove down to my first stop in Enfield NC and delivered at 13:30. Thats about 24 hour early. Then I drove a few hours more and parked at Flying J in Latta SC. My last stop will be at US Cold Storage in Lake City tomorrow. Appointment time is unfortunately on the 12th, but hopefully they will let me deliver early.


Saturday, December 21st 2015

My new load goes to Florida with a stop in North Carolina. I will be loading at Solutia in Springfield MA. When I got here I had to watch a video and pass a quiz to be able to enter. When I first got in it was pretty much like a new quiz to find my way through it all with no signs anywhere!
