Had to pull into a different drive way at the little truck stop here in burns oregon. Well it lead to me getting stuck.. Currently stuck in the driveway and waiting for help in the morning. Man everytime I start doing good I get humbled.. just hope this won't be added to my risk analysis score.

Dump the air to lower your fifth wheel and lock your inter axel and you might be able to get out if your stuck in snow. A driver thats been out here way to long showed me that one a few days ago.

I entered through the side. Missed the first entrance and the other was blocked so I came up the side street. Shouldn't have done it but I did and got stuck.

How are you stuck? In snow/ice? Or is it a dip in the road? If there's no damage to the equipment, I don't think it will affect your score.

It is pretty deep snow. Wet and heavy too. Man I feel like a damn idiot.

Gotcha. But no equipment damage, right?

I got stuck in a Walmart parking lot once. Thankfully there were big tractors there plowing the lot and one of them gave me a shove. It happens...

Not damage, still had to give a claim report. My score dropped due to clean inspection, but still I feel bad. I barely even slept last night. I felt embarrassed. Doesn't help when old drivers say smart ass things just because of my company. Lesson learned though.

F those guys Gladhand. The world is full of A holes. It just seems that this business has more than its fair share. Do not let it bother you!
