Today, I started with a visit to the dentist. So, my driving day got off to kind of a late start. Which of course means that I’m probably going to be out until halfway through Saturday at least. The truck is fine, I’m fine, though both of us are suffering under the sudden onslaught of […]

Today finds me in South Jersey. I took a few days off…first time I’ve done that in quite a while. My truck was attended to while I was out, which was part of my purpose. Nice when that comes together. Tonight, I’ll most likely be overnighting somewhere in eastern PA. Welcome to my world. As […]

Today, I’m in Hanover Pennsylvania. I  dragged a load of salt down from Silver Springs New York to this place. I’ve never been here before, and the route in, given the small size of the streets around the place, made it a bit of a challenge. It’s a challenge I’m used to dealing with these […]

I’ve started out this week, doing some local work while my truck gets a full service and some much needed repair. At the moment I’m sitting in a warehouse outside Geneva New York, looking at more canned vegetables than I’ve ever seen in my life. This afternoon, I’ll go out on the road again. I’m […]

I’m at College Point, Queens New York this morning. I’m delivering a load of Gatorade to the local Pepsi distribution center. Extremely narrow streets around this place, and as a result I’ve never come in here where I haven’t done some very serious side walk driving. That’s an accomplishment with a big rig. I have […]

I’ve been asked if I write all these things out by hand on my laptop. The truth is, no I don’t. First of all, because I don’t have the time, generally. But, and more importantly, I tend to have ideas at strange times for things that I ought to be writing. So what I do […]

I woke up the other morning to the sound of cows. No, I’m quite serious. It was somewhat muffled here in the truck, but I could hear it none the less, and couldn’t quite figure out what it was in my half asleep state. I opened the curtains and here’s what I saw parked just […]

First stop this morning was in New Paltz New York, essentially within shooting distance of McPhillips. I regret my schedule doesn’t leave me enough time to offer him some coffee. It would be an interesting meeting, I think. I managed to get a late start to the week, so I will probably be out until […]
