While we were being loaded, he shared with me that during his training, he remembers being told about hauling high value loads, such as computers. He said they were instructed that they shouldn't make ANY stops within three hours of the pickup, so as not to be targeted by hijackers. Can you imagine? We speculated on what we would possibly be carrying, in a refrigerated trailer, and decided that maybe caviar or lobster would be likely. Turns out we were pretty much spot on. We hauled over 33,000 lbs of frozen seafood; lobster, crab, crawfish, langostino, tilapia...up to New York state. I watched our rearview mirror closely for any signs of hijackers! What would they do to us if they did stop us, I wondered? Would they shoot us? Or would they just take the truck and leave us stranded? But we made it safely to our destination. So the next time you eat at Red Lobster, think of us and how we made it possible.
Here are a few pictures from yesterday in upstate New York

be a jigsaw puzzle.
