    I talked to a upsf driver today and he said that they were not to busy and that they slowed way down after Christmas. How was it for you? I know FedEx got real slow but ups is still busy. And fedex freight got busy after Christmas. Something don't make sense lol

    Depends on what type of terminal he's out of, end of line terminals are usually a bit slow where as the break bulk terminals are slow but not as slow (if that makes sense). January/February is usually when we are all slow.

    The Storms in the mid west have helped keep all us northeast LTL guys very busy, once caught up though it will be back to the norm. NBR's been fairly busy and we've been helping out moonachie a bit on some of their accounts in tottawa nj

    Im guessing the mini hibs were closed as I did our longest run tonight to Harrisburg, then got Via'ed to Brooklyn, and dropped the van off and grabbed empties, lets just say since idiots in NYC have no patients and like to triple park I got stuck in the snow in the street for 2 hours until the wrecker finally got there. Man I cant stand driving in NYC, and like I said people with no patients got stuck as well. Lets just say I JUST made it back on my 14(roads were slick so I took it eas)

    Yup they shut down everything in the north east. Luck me I was doing a team run to Orlando but still had to stop in Harrisburg. Place was a madhouse as everything was rerouted to them, I got lucky, found my #### in about 20 minutes and beat feet for NBR before it got even worse.

    I was there around 2am. Got to leave my set connected as it was a GAF load. Took a while to find the van but I got it. Do miss the occasional van as the trucks pull better.

    Didn't know you guys went on teams to Orlando. You guys got better runs than us lol but I knew that upon being hired so no regrets. I thought I was going to NBR. If I was I would've messaged you.

    Not sure if you guys take 81 or 78-287 to Newburgh but 78 in PA was good but jersey was full of black ice

    Paid route to NBR from HRS is 81 to 84 route 2 is 78 to 287 (30 miles longer) 84 as you know isn't well taken care of in the winter but wasn't too bad this trip.

    At YRC we took 84-81 and was 221 miles. I didn't think 78 to 287 was 30 miles longer. I know 81-80-380-84 is 17 miles longer, I have taken that back once as there was a lot of construction in Scranton so Harrisburg rerouted us. 287-78 is YRCs snow route
