Stay safe everyone, and it’s okay, you can walk on the sidewalks when I’m around😏😏

...unless of course you are around and required to navigate the traffic circle on Rt 322 (a heavily used truck route) through Rowan University in Glassboro NJ. I am on this stretch of road frequently in order to deliver to several Walmarts in extreme South Jersey. As many times as I've been through it, no one has ever been on the sidewalk...otherwise I'd need to wait for all of the pedestrian traffic to clear before proceeding.

Those are tight corners...wouldn't be so bad if they did have a center median in each lane....I imagine, I would have to use the sidewalk too lol.....

But until I get started, I will live vicariously through you all.

Ahh yes, those nasty center circles.....

So today dropped at a Kroger in Indiana, picked up from Miami Fl. Naturally they took their sweet time unloading a half trailer load. Now at new 01 waiting to be loaded another hival for Ohio, then hopefully, next load will point us Southbound for some much needed home time. So far it has been a great experience, some days better than others which is to be expected. Now, it’s all about staying alert and safe and count those miles until I upgrade to my own truck. Stay safe !!!

Well, here we are at our 90, some such place in the general area of Virginia close to Washington D.C. All I can say thus far is, “Are we there yet??”. So once this is unloaded, we had about 90 miles back North, and that load drops almost exactly in between our homes, which gives us our much needed home time. First time home in over a month, so some home time will be great. HOPEFULLY then, once back from home time, 3-4 more weeks and I’ll upgrade to an “A” seat and into my own truck! That said, everyone stay safe, and remember to wave a finger at the greyhounds!! shocked.png
