    I was a Pup. Hauled a load of onions in a brand new Great Dane reefer. I was trainee. Trainer would not turn on the reefer. They had to destroy the box, no one would load it. 113 degrees makes onions nasty. Steam cleaning, bleach, made no difference. Trainer lost his job.

    5 pounds of coffee would have done the trick amzing stuff in the back of a reefer

    I'll have to start treating my tarps with coffee before rolling them up, they smell for weeks.

    I saw a flat with onions on the other day. It didn't look so tough. If it's a regular gig, I would buy pick up truck bed netting and put one on the front and another on the rear.

    Saw a guy between LA and San Diego driving an old schoolbus stacked full of onions. I assume he was the farmer, guess he didn't want to shell out $1.50/mile to some greedy trucker
