    Made it out of the tank wash, and with 54 minutes of clock, ran up to the 99 Pilot. Rolled into the lot with 4 minutes remaining due to some traffic holding me up.

    To the new guys. Never leave the terminal without extra travel orders. Blank ones. Had to use white out and hand jive on sent to me from log ops

    Giving my self 3 hours to make it from the Pilot on 99. Hopefully I can load and run down to a Pilot in WV this evening. Probably Burnsville is where I can make it. Run hard the following day and preposition for delivery on the 21st. After that I tank wash home to Wilmington. Knocking on wood, so far it's been a good trip.

    Good luck. I've seen videos of truckers on YouTube running through Brooklyn and it doesn't look to bad, but I'm sure it's no fun.

    One of the worst parts is all the cars parked on both sides of the streets. The even park in the corners making every turn tight and sometimes impossible.

    I haven’t done system yet. They have me working with a local guy. But we’ve pretty much covered all types of loads and some snow driving. Brooklyn was pretty much brooklyn today. Parked cars and drivers cutting into traffic. Had to park on sidewalk to offload this one.
     
    Smut Thanks this.

    Made it from Bradford down to our Cincinnati terminal. Got to meet Slim doing his training. It's cool to meet others from the board. Good guy who will do well.

    Decided to get a hotel tonight and eat at Roosters. Still amazed they get us hotels once in a while.
