The caption messed up... It said that I like watching those Virtual Railfan cameras in my spare time, and that I actually enjoy watching the trains go by (almost as much as I like watching the trucks go by)

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Linden, I too love seeing the trains. Out here there are many. I think the auto hauling cars are cool.

I have seen chickens, pigs, deer and horses munching on grass on the roadside. Pleanty of hawks and other wildlife. Yesterday, I saw a beautiful rainbow. And I am still awed by the magnificent beauty of this country.

May not seem like much, but it made me chuckle. While driving west on I-90 from Rochester NY into PA, at some point, a leaf managed to get caught on my CB antenna. I drove a good 400 some odd miles, parked, drove another 150m this morning and it's still there! I got a new riding buddy!

Pic was taken yesterday at around 1700 in Jeffersonville OH.

Ok, my doggy and I summited Street and Nye mountains in the Adirondacks yesterday. It was an immaculate day - 42 degrees for a high at the base of the mountain, not a hint of a breeze even at the summit, and beautiful sunshine all day long. There was only a little bit of snow on the ground at the base, and maybe only a foot or so near the summit.

There wasn't much of a view from the summit, it was mostly blocked by thick pine trees, but I managed a decent picture.

DAC:

Drive-A-Check Report

A truck drivers DAC report will contain detailed information about their job history of the last 10 years as a CDL driver (as required by the DOT).

It may also contain your criminal history, drug test results, DOT infractions and accident history. The program is strictly voluntary from a company standpoint, but most of the medium-to-large carriers will participate.

Most trucking companies use DAC reports as part of their hiring and background check process. It is extremely important that drivers verify that the information contained in it is correct, and have it fixed if it's not.

Saw this guy recently. He wasn't moving very fast either.

This guy (or girl) had spent a part of just about everyday of a summer tapping at the back sliding door. Towards the end it would usually being a friend.

I know this isn't a big deal to most and it definitely isn't the most scenic, but I was pretty happy with this "picture" during my first day of backing....lol https://photos.google.com/u/1/photo/AF1QipOvE99ubkUZGhIfqEi2yVmJmK_EOZRX4bhiJBcZ

Gladhand, I really like driving the western states for the views too (though there have been some great ones in the east as well).

Here's one I took at the rest area before the Nevada State line in Utah. The salt flats are really beautiful after a rain.

The bandit was from last week, but this one is from last November. I will try to post current things going forward, I doubt anyone wants me dumping three years of trucking photos lol.

Fantastic image Matt...thanks!
