A Nestle' backhaul from Breinigsville Pa back to the DC, 21 pallets of Deer Park weighing 45,782lbs. That was the last stop of a 4 stop run totaling 362 miles, a tad over 12 hours to complete.

The initial outbound store delivery run of dry grocery, 29 pallets was 40,211lbs. Millville NJ 9 pallets, Vineland NJ 12 pallets, & Williamstown NJ 8 pallets.

My previous load was 9876 lbs of plastic action figures that I had loaded at Funko in Everett, WA. Delivered that today (Thursday) at a WalMart DC in Jurupa Valley, CA. This was right beside a busy Swift terminal. 1272 total miles. Was pretty neat topping Grapevine Hill in 10th gear at 57 mph on I-5 coming south. My average for this trip was 9.2 mpg.


A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Smyrna TN to Plainfield IN. Had about a 45m deadhead from Portland TN, just before the KY border. Had to go through Nashville during morning rush hour, thank God for TN-155/Briley Parkway (got through in about 15m). About 325m from pickup to delivery. The load was automotive parts going to a pepboys warehouse. Just under 9k lbs loaded not even 1/4 full. Such a waste of floor space, but what do I care; we get paid regardless.


To drive with an empty trailer. After delivering your load you will deadhead to a shipper to pick up your next load.

Trip before the last one I posted, I reached a personal milestone. Finally got through North Dakota, from east to west. That's my 50th state, doing all of the lower 48 and 4 Canadian provinces in under 2.5 years. Some day I want to take a load north to Dead Horse.
