    I wonder if it's a thing where plant a only produces one or two types and the other produces another type/flavor

    My wife and I love Eggo’s. It wouldn’t bother me if they made and shipped them from all over the North American continent. In fact, that would mean I get my Eggo’s and there’s more reefer freight available.

    Ah yes, Roskam Baking in Kentwood. Guessing you delivered them to US Cold Storage in McDonough. I’ve also delivered them to US Cold Storage in La Vergne TN. Those waffles are super light. I think a full trailer was only 20K pounds. Oh, anyway, Roskam kinda sucks. It’s in a hard to find place. No signs anywhere that say Roskam. Eventually I discovered Google Maps has a marker for the truck gate. One time I ran out of hours there and had to park overnight on the road there. Tried ordering UberEats and the driver couldn’t find the location, gave up on ever getting in like 2 hours after waiting. Eventually like 4 hours later I get a knock on my door, and my UberEats order finally found its way to me. The drop trailer lot there is super tight too.

    Yea, Roskam. Didn't have a problem finding them the 1st time...just finding the right lot to drop and hook since they put the sign at the far end. Yesterday there were 0 parking spots...it was wait for the driver ahead of you to pull his loaded trailer out, drop your empty there, then pu your loaded trailer so the next driver can park in your spot.

    While I was there, as I stepped out of my truck to get my paperwork, there was a loud roar as a Werner was pulling out. Wondering what he was dragging...I realized, it wasn't him, but a stelth fighter flying over(not sure if F-22 or F-35), and a 2nd following the 1st. They had just taken off from the Ford airport. Then, 2 F-18's were circling preparing to land like they were landing on a carrier (hard bank turns gear down, etc). Almost like being at an airshow.

    One engine F-35, and it’s smaller than the twin engined F-22. The Navy pilots were trying to reach the Air Force pilots how to fly a pattern lol.

    @4mer trucker isn't the only retired driver we have around here. And I hope that since you're getting short you'll choose to stay with us as well once you hang up the keys.

    Honestly, the delay because of the ammonia leak ended up only adding a few hours to what I would expect a normal load time at your average cold storage would be. All told, I was there 4.5 hours. I've had longer delays when the customer has an outbreak of lazy-###, which is more contagious than the beer flu. However, that put me in heavy traffic getting out of McDonough and thru Atlanta(which has heavy traffic any time the sun is out). Only managed to make it to Gaffney where I called it a night. I don't have to be in Bethlehem until Sunday, and my logbook is off balance. I get back short hours in the late weekend and early part of the week. Plus, I am going into reset withdrawal. I haven't done a 34 since leaving home, and my miles reflect that. The next time I actually speak to my A/M, I will point out the difference since he originally said he liked running his drivers on recap instead of allowing resets. Even with my lower average miles this month, after I deliver this load, I will only be 10-10.5k miles shy of my required miles to get my yearly penny raise, and I have until late Oct. to get that.

    Absolutely. Unless I get run off, I’ll hang around.
