    Thats it. Then when you get around it you have about 5 feet in front of your nose to maneuver with without hitting the wall.

    I just looked it up on Google maps. It doesn't appear to be much worse than the Boar's Head behind Cortina's in Orange, CA on Batavia St. That was my regular Calex stop when I went west with them. It was fun to do at zero dark thirty in the morning. Thankfully it was a Sunday delivery so traffic was light.

    God only knows you won’t want me to hook it next and have to take care of issues that the previous driver was suppose to do. I have a habit of getting ill and getting Kimberley involved.

    I wonder when the trickle down effect will start?

    If I gotta drive reefer 100% of the time, I'm not sure it's worth it.

    Imagine doing Boars Head on a full time basis. It would never happen here, we have drivers that need 12-14 hours of a 10 hour break. Add to that we have drivers that also don’t work nights.
