    While it isn't anywhere near the winter weather the wonderful northern posters here on the board see on a frequent basis, the fact still remains that having to drive all day in this crap truly sucks balls. Especially in a rear-wheel drive van on curvy-assed mountain roads. Morning/evening commute wouldn't be so bad, but when you have to deal with it all day it just becomes a hassle. Anyone else have a job where you have to drive in this crap (or something like it) all day?

    Yeah, but my truck is alot bigger. :D  Though I didn't have to work today. It was slow, they had to cut a driver, I've been sick, so I volunteered.

    Bah, I'll be doing that next week, getting more experience on the 53' Express (bulk) trucks. I think me and one other trainee will be driving with the regular drivers so that we can go get certified with Phil again. Fortunately, they're calling for near 70 degree weather on Monday. :p

    You work for coke right?

    Anyways, I'm hating on my work right now. Driving a van over a steep embankment sounds pretty good.

    You work for Pepsi?

    Any chance you can sell me a bunch of used ball lock kegs for a decent* price?

    I feel bad for you guys, having to drive in that crappy weather. And here I am, complaining in an office.

    I wish I could, but I'd get fired for doing that.

    Yeah don't do anything like that. I was only half serious. :) 

    I thought Pepsi and Coke stopped using the ball lock kegs and had switched over to some kind of flexible plastic bag type thing?

    Honestly I haven't dealt with any kegs. The only time those are used mainly are on the portable trailers, and that's a whole different department. I've seen them, but rarely. Most of our high-volume (ie restaurants, bars, etc) use what we call BiB (Bag in a Box, a pre-mix syrup that is combined with carbonated water in a fountain setup like you'd find in many restaurants).

    No Coke. Pepsi!


    Didn't have any snow other than a few flakes. I keep some bottled water in my car and when I got one out for work the entire center was a solid core of ice! i didn't expect it to be 12 degrees out and all I wore was a light jacket. But I like the cold so I was fine. Gonna have to switch to a heavy coat for a while.

    That sucks - I still remember the great pizza delivery driver dig out of 2004, I was the only guy working there who had a car big enough to go around and help all the delivery drivers out of the snow.

    I love that lot. A few nice brand new looking vans, a Focus, and a few old ass Aerostars.

    Dude, icy roads suck, the plows don't even come through my back of the woods neighborhood more than once or twice when we do get our blizzards (which has been like every couple of days lately).
    Still, since you are Pepsi and such, figure out what the hell is up with Mountain Dew Game Fuel, I stocked up as well as I could before the stores stopped carrying it. When I drink the last drops from that last master chief covered can it'll be a dark day for me. . .

    Here in my part of NC there was only a little bit of snow for 10 minutes today. But it's okay, a little centimeter of snow means no school!:)

    The thing is, they're all JUNK. I think the newest van we have is like a 2002 Chevy van (not in picture), and it has like 166,000 miles on it. That's actually pretty low compared to most of our route trucks (some have 200,000+).
