    This will be my 14th Peak Season. Almost 10 years on my route.

    Not off to a good start either.

    I had 38 peaks, 9 as a package car driver. Dang I miss it! Must have been light today. Had a helper come by Thursday, Friday it was the driver by himself.

    this is my third peak
    nearly twice the volume as normally expected throughout most December....or so I'm told.
    Could also be because we have a better building sup!
    Hooray for retired driver's SUP getting back into the game and become a preload SUP.
    The old boss is a driver now. Haha!
    Wouldn't want to be a SUP anyway.
    Went off topic...THIRD PEAK and I'm killing it.
    Sups are lining up to use me for there operations,
    also twice as many new-hires and driver's helper's this year.
    good stuff.,

    24 peaks. Missing my first one this year due to an injury. Am hoping I will be able to return sometime next year.

    A better question is how many years into retirement do you have to have before you recover from post traumatic Christmas disorder!

    UpstateNYUPSer Very proud grandfather.

    I went in to this Peak thinking I had 4 more to go but when I received my pension estimate it showed that I will be retiring about 9 months earlier than expected to so I will only have 3 left after this one.

    First week down----fairly smooth so far. We may have some weather mid-week which may throw a monkey wrench in to the operation.

    On my 26th. 4 to go. This yr is a little scatter brained. Seems like management has no clue what is happening day to day. Oh wait!
