Well I am getting to experience the northeast once again. This will be my second time running to New Jersey and this is my first cross country run!

I am picking up in San Diego, California and going to Perth Amboy, New Jersey. Should be a good run!

Great run. Hopefully your appointment time does not coincide with rush hour.

I think I would try to get there a couple hours early....😄. I just got back from driving my daughter to visit some colleges....drove to Philly, Baltimore, and DC......Spent a week driving in those three cities thinking the entire time....”could be worse, I could be in a truck”

Traffic isn't horrible at 0600 in the morning. A few backups here and there. My appt in Brooklyn was 0700. I came in on 80 from New Jersey. The only traffic backup I encountered was at the George Washington bridge. On the way out was a different story. I crawled pretty much the whole way out. 678 was backed up because of construction. Down to 1 lane in a lot of spots. 95 was messed up from multiple fender benders. Once I cleared the GW heading west traffic was smooth sailing.

I'm very familiar with Perth Amboy the traffic is not bad you will be fine. It starts about 0630 but it's not bad at all.

No I don't deliver until Wednesday morning, so from the sounds of it, I should miss all the bad weather.
