Carlisle, PA– I’m at the truck stop in Carlisle as I write this. Getting comfortable in the new truck I’ve been assigned is an effort that has taken weeks… as I suspected it would. There’s still work to be done on it, but I find myself being very productive with it, and suspect this truck […]

This is a truck I caught outside Carlisle, PA. This picture doesn’t really do the truck justice, but you get the idea. The pictures above are all from one day in Southern NY around the Binghamton, NY area last week. Today that area saw temps in the low 60’s. A look at my old office, […]

Florence, NJ– Eric is a hurting unit, today. I fell off the truck day before yesterday, while doing a roadside repair, and I’m felling all of it, the day after. Other than that, I’m actually doing fairly well, I think.  Like any new job, there are days when I think I’ve got a handle on […]

Due to equipment problems, and some timing issues, I was unable to get out of town before the snowstorm hit in Carlisle, PA, the other night.,  drove for a few hours and was almost out of legal time, (Truckers are restricted […]

Avon, NY– Took a load from Batavia, NY to Carlisle, PA yesterday, and  today, brought one back.  Because of what I consider company security, I won’t get into a lot of detail of the problems encountered, but I will say without question it was a full moon. I’ll post some pics over the weekend. I […]

(East Syracuse, NY)— Came in from Carlisle, PA last night, and spent the night at Binghamton, NY. I can’t say I’m overly impressed with this truck; the steering feels a little vauge, especially when the roads are wet. Past that, (and a lown out brake line on the trailer last night) things have been fairly […]
