On Wednesday, I was loading in Laredo, TX when I met a man named, Pete Affolter. He was parked beside me in his light blue 1998 model Freightliner Century.
Usually, when I discuss aerodynamics, the subject is based on my fuel economy. It’s important to note that there are other benefits to having an aerodynamic truck and trailer.
My posts are usually regarding aspects of business, the Cascadia and experiences over the road. As much as I enjoy driving this state of the art truck with all its new technology, sometimes its good to focus on line one of our log books.
Recently, out on the road I visited a sub shop and while eating, I began to think about the many ways people describe these sandwiches throughout different parts of the country.
On the previous post, I wrote about the lost section of the Pennsylvania Turnpike which made me think of The Grand View Ship Hotel.
This week and next week, I plan to be extremely busy, therefore I thought it would be neat to put some different reading material on the blog.
I had a very busy week in the northeast and have returned to North Carolina. I must say this years Make a Wish event was another successful and rewarding experience.
Today, I thought it would be a good idea to talk about one of the great options available on the Cascadia.
While in Lancaster County Pennsylvania this week, I ate at the famous Jennie’s Diner.
This week I’ll be heading to New Jersey to make a delivery and from there my plans are to travel to Pennsylvania to participate in the 23rd Annual Make a Wish Foundation Truck Convoy.
