Just back down the train tracks and then 90 through the trees. Easy peasy ;)

Looks like that had to be fun.

People who think everything comes on a 15 foot box truck.

Just back down the train tracks and then 90 through the trees. Easy peasy ;)

Now your sounding like a P&D driver

P&D:

Pickup & Delivery

Local drivers that stay around their area, usually within 100 mile radius of a terminal, picking up and delivering loads.

LTL (Less Than Truckload) carriers for instance will have Linehaul drivers and P&D drivers. The P&D drivers will deliver loads locally from the terminal and pick up loads returning to the terminal. Linehaul drivers will then run truckloads from terminal to terminal.

Auggie69 the train tracks could be an option but I didn’t have anything to Ford the ditch that was hiding in the tree line 😂.

And the street view is deceiving, hard to get set up when the parking lot is full

Once I got set up in the first part of the alley I got out and walked where I needed to go and immediately started cussing lol. In the back piggly wiggly had a dumpster , a few connexes, and a bunch of bailed cardboard that hadn’t been picked up, DG had a bunch of empty rolltainers

Another interesting one. Also google maps lie , the street that I had to pull up on to back in the alley is a dirt road and not paved. This is also in a 53 foot trailer. You can’t go around the other side of the store and pull through because it is too tight and obstacles. I was unsure of exactly how I would do it till I got there. Had to throw on my flashers , get out and walk the area.🤷🏻‍♂️ Better than gettin in a jam You can’t get out of

Still looks hard from street view :) They are building DGs left and right around me. Everytime I drive by one I look to see how to get in there and each time think, "Nope. Not me!" :)

LOL! A P&D driver would say, "Sorry, can't get a van in there. Send a pup!" ;)

Sometimes the challenge can be fun, sometimes....... Also I was pretty late getting home last night, first store was closed because an employee had COVID, and they decided not to tell anyone. Fun times. Waited 5 hours until they made someone come in and receive me.
