Port Gibson, NY– I’m at the yard, about ready to take a rest break as this is written. By the time it goes up, I’ll be in The Bronx making a delivery.  Had some problems with the truck, in addition to the one I already had at Indianapolis on Monday. Thankfully, nothing earth-shaking. It’s running […]

Carteret,NJ– I’m dropping  a load of canned veggies. I’ll camp out for the night, once that’s done. It’s getting colder at night, but thank God my Auxiliary Power unit is working fine. This will be a short week for me; My wife and I got married on 11-11-89.  That makes this Friday, 11-11-11, our 22nd […]

Ridgefield, NJ– I’m at the Vince Lombardi rest area for a rest break. I’ll be going into the city shortly after midnight. But what are they, really? and what are they fighting for?: OK, like a lot of you, I too am getting to the point where I have a little “occupy” boredom. I’m bored […]

Corning,NY– I’m dropping a load off and taking a break. From here I’ll run back to Harrisburg and then back into NY again. Kind of a weird week for routing, really. Beautiful day for a drive, though. Crisp fall day, 60 degrees not a cloud in sight.   More on “Occupy Wall Street”– I spoke […]

Clayton, NY— I’m here dropping a load of Pepsi products, and will run to Rochester, grab another trailer and run it to Monroe Township,NJ before I call it a day. It’s been raining since I left on Sunday night, non-stop. I hear by way of Billy Beck that they’re sandbagging the hospital in Binghamton. I-88 […]

Queens, NY– Yes, I’m in the city. Some flooding, mostly in Jersey, and a number of trees down, again in Jersey, mostly.  I came in at 1am, so you can imagine that traffic was better than usual. I’m not looking forward to trying to drive out of here, but… at least I got in without […]

Hickory Run, PA– I’m at my stop for the night, along Interstate 80. This is actually a favorite stop of mine… not for the facilities…. they need some help, actually… but because it’s very near to a place I load from frequently. It’s started raining just now, and I expect it’ll be a bit cooler […]

Some accumulated notes The more I drive the more I’m firmly convinced most people shouldn’t. The first point includes, I’m afraid, the police.  I have observed on several occasions now, a cop winding up their full sized car to 30  and 40 mph over the limit.
