I woke up at my usual time. “Are we stopping to switch?”
“There isn’t anywhere”, Jai said.
“Where are we headed?” I asked, knowing last night he dropped a trailer in Philadelphia – but that was all I knew.
“Are you ready for this? New York City”.
I climbed up into the jumpseat and grabbed the camera/phone and noticed my hands were shaking a little. I started snapping pictures all the way in, to one of the most incredible cities not he planet. We were going through the Bronx, into Queens.
OUR FIRST TIME…
I don’t know if you think it is a big deal or not… but …taking a 72 foot long truck that’s 13’6″ high into one of the oldest cities in the country is a very big deal. Just ask any trucker how they feel about going into New York City…. 🙂
Thankfully we had more than a year of driving under our belts before we had to do this.
Jai drove in. Andrea drove out. This was a very big day…
