When on a recent trip in my car I headed towards the truck parking at a TP rest stop on I-76.

When someone asks what time it is and you say: "15:35".

When I duck and get nervous going under low bridges in my pickup! To this day I still do that. In Buffalo there are quite a few low bridges and when I see a sign that says 11' 2" my heart starts racing and I cringe and look up at the bridge as I go under it like, "Oh geez I don't like this!!!!"

Today is a good one. Drove 639 miles, still had time left on my clock, and enough energy to enjoy a meal with hubby!

Ha, that's great. I was driving last week and saw a sign that said Clearance 13' 8" - moment of panic - no, that's more than 13' 6", I'm OK - oh wait, I'm driving my car.

When an adult has to buy bunk beds for their bedroom to make the transition from sleeping in the truck to sleeping at home a little easier...

When I arrived at a shipper 3 hours early after driving all night. Shut down and took a nap woke up 2.5 hours later. Look out side and have no idea were I was or why I was parked were I was. Took me 5 min of panic racking my brain to figer out what I was doing. still someday I wake up and have no idea were I am at first.

Shipper:

The customer who is shipping the freight. This is where the driver will pick up a load and then deliver it to the receiver or consignee.
