Here are some pictures, I took while making some very rural deliveries in Maryland and Southern Pennsylvania. So rural that I couldn't tell which state I was in because they didn't have any signs up.

Thought these pics were great! 8) 8)

Loved the scenery, landscape, the roads, buildings, everything.
That's what I miss most about trucking, and the very cool places you get to travel, and the interesting people and things you see.
 You're a lucky man in my book.

Thanks for posting.

Make this a blanket statement, save myself a bit of typing, (arthritis), checked out many of your other photos, more to go, good stuff! ;D ;D

Excellent series--Trucking in the real world where the rubber meets the road and the winter scenes make your post special--Thanks for sharing :) :) :)

Before I clicked up you post I thought the title was referring to a now gone railroad by the same name referred to by rail fans as the "Ma & Pa". John and Gary probably remember :) :) :)

Walt -

Sorry for late reply! <G> The old MA & PA RR used to cross the road,
down the street a couple hundred yards from my residence!

Beats me how you may know about it! <G>

Nice pictures and video of some beautiful, mostly unspoiled country. Many of the smaller towns along US 40 in MA & PA seem to be frozen in time. The intersections of  US 219 & I-68 and US 40 are probably the most developed in the immediate are but you only need to travel about 1/2 a mile to be back in the country.

I used to deliver to several Amish businesses in PA & OH when I drove for a door manufacturer and can relate to what it's like to travel these types of roads in all kinds of weather but I have to admit, it's a bit easier in a single axle daycab and a 48' trailer. You seem to know your way around in that delivery at the end of the video, I take it you've been there before?

I enjoy the fact that I live just over an hour from that area but don't have to deal with anywhere near the annual snowfall that occurs in the 219 corridor. :)

A few years ago I paid a visit to a "Ma & Pa" company in Grantsville that operated one of my favorite fleets when I was a kid. Here's a link if your interested:
