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 […]

Carlisle, PA— Actually, I’m a little closer to Harrisburg… but whatever. GREAT TO BE BACK– Yes, it took a while, but we’re back. I simply got fed up with the antics at the webhost I was using.  Far too much downtime, usually caused by them.  And always without notice. For a while there, I didn’t […]

Carlisle, PA– A quick run down from Rochester last night, and I’ll be headed for the Albany tomorrow. From there, likely back to Rochester, but I don’t know yet.   It’s snowed around Rochester Saturday night/Sunday morning,m and we’re looking at somewhat colder temps. Was nearly 60 on Saturday around home. It’s as I tld […]

Oneanta, NY-  I’m set to deliver at Latham, NY in the morning. Sorry for the long time between posting a Ramble, but the internet connectivity is an issue again. It’s frustrating because I don’t understand WHY.  (shrug) Only one topic, today…. because frankly, it’s all I’ve had time to follow:   Iowa:Thanks to Art Smith […]

Fultonville, NY– I’m at a rest area along the New York Thruway, after having turned around 500 miles today. Not much to report, really.   Saithood?  I commend to your reading an article by Thomas Sowell. I made a point last week about Gingrich’s legislative record vs Romney’s… and Sowell does as well: While the […]

Carlisle, PA–After three highly unusual weeks of running to the west it appears as though I will be spending the remainder of this year running east.  That’s a bit more normal for this truck line.  Frankly, we’re experiencing a bit of a pre Christmas slowdown. I’m not worried.  I’ve seen this before.  From here, I […]

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 […]

Indianapolis, IN–I’m still at Indy. When I got done writing yesterday’s Ramble, I did my usual pre-trip inspection of my truck and found that I had oil coming from one wheel seal. This is a possibly dangerous situation, with fire or possibly a lack of braking power being the upshot. At the very least it […]

Indianapolis, Indiana–.. As this is written, I am in Indianapolis for the third week in a row.  They’ve got me picking up new trailers out here and ferrying them back to Rochester… an effort to upgrade the entire fleet of trailers that we have.  These that I’ve been bringing back are pretty good shape and […]

Sloatsbburg, NY–  I’m making the last 500 or so miles today, of a week that’s seen me crossing a dozen or more state lines, and running nearly 3000 miles, from the midwest to New Jersey. A productive week.  I also managed to get my internet connectivity working, finally. The snow has started.  This pic was […]

Buffalo, NY– I’m at the Erie County Medical Center, dropping off some furniture that I picked up at Elkhart IN. A nice little stretch of the legs. I’ll be back at the yard in a few hours and ready for my next adventure. This trip out west is likely a rare event, but I must […]

Milton, PA– I came down here last night with a load of  green beans and such. They’re unloading me as I write this. It’s cool around here today, but not yet cold, except at night. My truck is running fine.   My internet connectivity is a little screwy as I get used to the new phone. […]

Columbia, NJ- I’m set to run into the city at about 3am, and am taking a rest break before doing that. It’s raining here, fairly hard, though the radar says it’ll slack off shortly. Hacking: The last few days, I’ve been having problems hitting Limbaugh’s site. Anyone else notice this one? Obamacare: Walter Russel Mead […]
