    I wouldn't know about orange harvest either. All the orange juice I haul is imported from Brazil and unloaded at ports in NJ and DE.

    Only ever been to Clovis once. Hauled calf feed to a massive dairy in NM and got reloaded in TX. I was at the terminal a whopping 15 mins max. No clue how things are there.

    When I was hauling milk from Va. to T G Lee and that has been many years ago, but I was told that Indian River did not haul any milk into them, but they used Indian River to haul their cream out . And talk about Winter Haven, I certainly hope it has improved from years back, it was a "pain". I have spent many hours at Bordens trying to get unloaded. Have they improved the bay up against the main building that was a pain to get in???
    I enjoyed going to T G Lee, got to know all the receivers real good and they really took care of me. I guess it has been more than 12 years since the last time I have been there.

    Interesting. I'll have to look at it. My own YT channel's been up since 2007. But strangely enough, I've never jumped onto the trucking bandwagon yet. Been driving total for about 12 years now and my channel is still strictly bicycle rides and a few other oddities thrown in.

    Of course I'm amazed by the amount of YT trucking channels and videos out now. A hearty resource right there.
