Many of my past postings on this forum have included me sharing the fact that I exercise regularly and eat a healthy dietary pattern while on the road. Even though I will run my 11hr or 14hr clock to the ground, everyday. I still get our and exercise a few days every week while on the road.

For instance, yesterday. I was scheduled for a 0500 live unload in Hershey, PA followed by a live load in Philadelphia, PA. I knee I would be running my 14hr clock, not my 11hr click the rest of the day. So, while in Philadelphia waiting to be loaded, I hit the streets for about an hour of walking.

Well, on my third time back through past shippers docks to see if my trailer was still in there (the have us drop it and leave), a $50 bill came blowing in from the street. It came to rest directly at my feet. I looked at it, looked around in disbelief, then picked it up. 😲

Not coincidentally, with the amount of walking and running I do, I routinely find money. But, until yesterday's $52.65 day, about $3.50 was the most I've ever found in a single day. I doubt that will be duplicated or surpassed on my future excursions.

But that won't stop me from trying while getting my exercise.🙃


The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.

Yeah the most I've found on the ground was $50 too, 2, $20s & a $10, folded into 1/4's. Got to work, in our 9 unit complex, 1st one there as always. And of all the empty spots, I happened to park in the right one hahaha.

Got out of my vw beetle, walked not even 8 feet, and there it was. I held onto it, waiting for about week, just in case, to see if anyone came asking if it was found. Nope, never heard anything about it.

Hi Bill,

One of the reasons I joined the company we both drive for is the focus on wellness. Awesome to see you getting the most out of your week with exercise!

The only thing I enjoy about live loads/unloads is that I can put on some hi viz and circlet the lot. Rest area pit stops are good for 10 fingertip push ups and 20 Hindu squats.

Keep on keeping it healthy and safe man!!

Best, JZ (Andy P.)

I can vouch for that. I had the pleasure of dining with the Joker earlier in the week in Marinette and he ate healthy!
