The opening hours had changed here at Anthony's so I came to closed doors. I wasn't the only one. Another Knight truck called me up on the cb and told me they changed their hours so I just parked and went to sleep.

Around 4:30 I woke up to knocking on my door, half asleep i worked myself out of the bunk and handed over the bills to the gentleman outside. Got a door right there. Backed in and went back to sleep. Around 8:30 they were done and I could leave.

Now just gonna get some breakfast then head over to Mars in Joliet IL for a load over to Missouri.

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.

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.

My hometime this year for Christmas got longer than expected due to the extraction of three wisdom's teeth. It was absolutely my worst dentist appointment ever.

I was at home for a week longer than planned due to the enormous pain I had, but Tuesday January 3rd I had to go back for work. Lost enough money already.

Went and did my road ready service in Columbus then got a trip from Troy OH to Casa Grande AZ. Just perfect. Now on the 7th I feel my jaws aching less and hopefully soon the 800mg ibuprofens are no longer Necessary.


Saturday, November 19th 2016

Went bed early last night, was super tired lol. Woke up early this morning because of the stupid sonar device starting to beep and talk. Noticed it was stuck on drive mode all night. 

Now even after my sleeper birth I'm out of hours because of it. Called the dispatch too have them fix it, after 45 minutes on hold I got thru and told them about it and now almost two hours later I'm still sitting with no hours and no logs fixed from those incompetent idiots. Also sent them a message about it.

I guess I gotta call back in and wait on hold for another xx minutes.


Friday, November 18th 2016

Done with my load from Fontana to Wal-Mart in Hermiston OR. Started 0400am this morning to finish the last few hundred miles I had left.

Now I'm at the Spaceage truckstop doing my sleeper birth, then I'm off tomorrow morning to pick up a load at Bluebird in Peshastin WA to be delivered in Gas City IN.


Friday, November 11th 2016

Then I'm here, first pickup of a total of three going to be delivered in Philadelphia on Tuesday, but not my me. It will be relayed so I can go back west for a week more. 

Next stop will be back in Nogales, then the last in Maricopa. About 130 miles the opposite way.


Saturday, November 5th 2016

Finally in Las Vegas and I'm doing a reset,  but don't seem to be any office people here today which means there won't be a van to borrow.  I've been driving night for the last two days and I was supposed to drop this trailer last night, but they didn't accept any drops before Sunday. 

Drove up to TA at Blue Diamond to park, but it was already packed.  Not really a surprise when it's 0100am Saturday morning. Even the paid parking was all taken or booked. Continued further up to North Las Vegas and parked at the yard. At least I got parked and Sam's club and In n'Out burgers are next door. 


Friday, October 21st 2016

Got a late delivery appointment yesterday to Dunkin Donuts for a change. Took my sleeper birth at Bensalem and ordered a pizza. Now at Kraft foods in Allentown to load for Groveport OH. 

The receiver is horrible, been there before. May wait up to 12 hours, sometimes more and they don't tell you when your trailer is done unloaded.

Delivery is tomorrow, then of to Troy OH to load for Casa Grande AZ.


Tuesday, October 4th 2016

Then we are here, but not on time. Appointment was 11:30 and we checked in 12:20. Now it's 15:15 still parked by the curb waiting for a door. The first impression of this place was great, friendly people and ready to check in and get done.

Earlier today we completed the long trip we had from Columbus to Sumner. We was done just in time for me to send in the paperwork so I can get paid for the trip this week. Costco was a nice place, but nothing more. No restrooms and no overnight parking. Just a 2 hour staging area.

The night before we parked at Wal-Mart in Auburn, just 7 miles up north on wa167. Unfortunately Wal-Mart there allows only short time parking like a couple of hours, so we moved over to the outlet parking lot across the street. I was out of hours so I couldn't get far.

After about an hour or maybe less security chased us of there too, but he was friendly enough to tell us about as place where we could park which was just a few hundred feets down the street behind Chevrons.

Then finally it was goodnight!


Saturday, September 24th 2016

Now me and my copilot in the picture been out on the road for about two weeks and we got two weeks left before we go home. 

We left home on August 13th and since then we've been in PA, NJ, NY, CE, MA, NH, ME, MD, VA, NC, SC, AL, MS LA, TX, AR, MO, IL and IN.

Tonight we are at Wal-Mart DC in Gas City IN, there's one more stop in Pottsville before we start on our next load from Souderton PA to Hickory NC.

It got late fast last night. After working myself through two accidents in North Carolina things got better,  at least a few hours. Drove I77 north through Charleston and up to I70. 

Had a 5 minute break at the last rest area before Columbus, then I continued towards Springfield when I ran into the third accidents (picture) on this trip. This one was really bad. Got stuck on the freeway for three hours without moving an inch. I fel asleep for an hour or so during that time.

It started moving again around 5am and I arrived at the shipper around 6. Slept two more hours on the shoulder, then woke up little before 8 and did my delivery.

Now I'm waiting to finish my ten hour break so I can pick up my next load to Dunkin Donuts NJ.

 


Monday, March 7th 2016

Was hoping and planning on getting home on Wednesday which seems like hard right now. After my delivery in Milwaukee on Saturday I got a Walmart load from Milwaukee with two deliveries, one in Pennsylvania and the next one in New York. Now at the Pattersonville travel plaza on I90 waiting for my delivery appointment at 0400 tomorrow morning. Crossing my fingers for a load back to Ohio so I can get home in time. This is my 4th week and that's enough for me. 


Friday, February 5th 2016

Today started with a little snow that turned into more snow and more and more. Traffic on I91 southbound was very slow. Average 15mph or less. Finally made it down to I287 and weather got better. Now unloading at Boyertown PA. Only one hour left on my clock. Gotta find a place to stay. Tomorrow it's standby for Del Monte in Gloucester City NJ.


Wednesday, January 20th 2016

After some time in the south the cold up here feels really bad but I will get used to it. Today unloading at GFS. My next stop on this trip will be Walmart in Bedford PA. Hometime is also getting closers :)


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!!

Went to a laundry place on mainstreet today to wash some very big items and Pandoras towels and blankets.
