Guys who have known me for the few years I have been around here may recall I shattered my tib/fib about 18 months ago. I'm considering moving to a straight truck route at Ground, mainly because I live a few blocks from the terminal about to be split. If I factor in my commute to the new terminal on the opposite side of the metropolis, the time in traffic, the fuel, winter weather, construction season, MLB games, and a few dozen other time-robbing things of the sort... I'm at risk of giving up one of the most coveted routes in my terminal, a route I have been on since I started as a swing 9 years ago and one where I know hundreds of people by a first name basis. But I am no spring chicken after the leg break, and the days of doing 140 spd are over. Most of the discussions here are usually about package van people and their experiences, off the top of my head I don't recall a straight truck discussion. I covered a straight truck p/u route after my p&d route for extra money during a maternity thing for 4 months, and it was generally cake until the day the truck was full after stop 5/15 and I was 40 miles from base. The new position will never be more than 10 miles from base and I don't think it would be an issue to run back and dump freight to make more room for the rest. What do you guys think of the lateral move?
