Who said I can't choose a carrier?


Edit: worst year I had prior to last (and current year) was $70 k. And, $70k was because of 4 days a week. Yes, I do the 2005 to myself ON PURPOSE :p
My bad! Thought you were complaining about not getting enough from your carrier. I know down here in the colonies the better carriers look for vans to be within 5 years new. I'm knot sure what "time conversion" is between US & Canada. Maybe a 2005 in Canada is the same as s 2015 here??

I’m not gonna be OCD about what load goes in what month. We left home on 4/26 on a sweet weekender to Houston. Monday afternoon & evening took us to Kansas. Wednesday evening, KS to AR, then Thursday AR to IL. Friday afternoon, we picked up the load we’re on now, back to PA. So, a good week

I just found out that telling someone from Guatemala “Happy Cinco de Mayo” is like telling a Red Sox fan, “Congratulations on the Yankees Winning the World Series”.

Pour one out for a dying truckstop. We deliver first thing in the morning to a plant in south central Pennsylvania. We stopped at the J in Breezewood because it’s close to the drop. Go inside, the place is a ghost town. The Perkins went out of business, and the deli-type place is only open M-F. Chips? Yes. Roller dogs? Not even. We go downstairs to the tv room. I knew there was no 4G there, but now they’ve turned off the WiFi. Last but not least, thank God I didn’t need gas, cos the place is now diesel-only.

So let’s try up the hill at the TA. Nope; not van friendly, even though it’s still a thriving place.

Now with Breezewood torn out of our map book, we’ve gone to a TA that feels like home. Lesson learned, eh?

Yup, a Dump! Maybe PFJ will buy them out like they did the Detroiter. Speaking of, we recently stopped at the "new" J on I-5 in Cali Castic Mtn., Beautiful, but same employees and already showing lack of maintenance.
