2nd stop- White Plains, NY

3rd stop- Brooklyn, NY

4th stop- Bronx, NY

5th stop- Hauppauge, NY (Long Island) stops receiving at 1400hrs.

Pray for me.

Hey! Only 2 of those are NYC!

That being said, getting from Philly to white plains at that time sounds tough. Bronx to long island is a toss up because it's before going home rush hour, but still afternoon.

I will pray for you.

Turtle, that is a geographical nightmare! If anybody can pull that off, you can.

I lived in Brooklyn for two years in my younger days. I have always remembered the joke:

"What is the smallest fraction of time that humans have discovered?" Answer: "The time it takes in NYC for the light to turn green and the car behind you to start honking."

Ha! Yeah well as far as I'm concerned, anything within a 50 mile radius of NYC...... might as well be NYC. OK, so 4 stops

Good luck! Is the load atleast loaded in a way you won't need to re-tarp and strap at every stop?

Nope. But there's only 5 total straps and 1 tarp. I'll probably retarp between Philly and White Plains, but I'm running naked after that if the weather is nice.

One would think, but no. Cooper/Eaton load out of Highland, IL.

Okay, it sounded like the stuff I do all the time. I think you can get it done, but it will be challenging. I often tell my wife about my various loads. I guess I say, "Everything will have to go just right on this one to pull it off" too much. She's no longer phased by my concerns. She is unimpressed by my ability to get things done anymore. She just seems to think everything goes right for me no matter what I'm faced with.

I deliver a lot of materials to Cooper plants. You could still be pulling SAPA materials. I'm assuming bbn it's not transformers or you wouldn't be tarped.
