Battle Creek to Brundidge

My favorite loads to deliver are 700 miles or more. Legally I can only drive 11 hours a day, so if I average 50 miles an hour then I can drive 550 miles in a day.I picked up the load of cereal that I’m delivering now at Kraft Foods in Battle Creek, Michigan and I will deliver it to a Wal-mart distribution center in Brundidge, Alabama today. That’s a trip of about 920 miles. Yesterday I was able to spend all day driving on interstate highways which was great. On days when I pick up or deliver I have to deal with the stress of following directions and driving on city streets. If I miss a turn I have to find a place to turn around. When I was on narrow country roads I have driven ten to twenty miles out of my way because of a wrong turn. Days that I spend on the open road are usually stress free and can be a lot of fun. Some days when the traffic is light, the scenery is beautiful, and I’m listening to something good on my iPod, I almost cry with happiness. Sometimes life can be really good.

  1. Hey David,

    That’s exactly the way I feel too when I’m driving to ‘Cuse………especially
    from the Poconnos on north……..something about the open road, the sun
    and “good” music that is very theraputic…………….enjoy!
