Gorgeous, Bora!

I'm a 'state away' ... on 77 !!!

Be safe, and congrats.

Chewing gum and life saver wintergreens (single wraps) are essentials to MY guy... in case of the drowsies. Stay away from those damn coffee shots and those 2" tall energy things. The crash... can cause just that.

Wish you well, still following~

YAY!!

Yes the best thing about the trucking for me now to see all the beautiful places!!

Thank you for the tip for the wintergreens I would try. I am not a coffee person or energy drink person. I just have Gatorade or Powerade and water.

Thank you for following 🙂

Everything is perfect thank you for asking! I am trying to adjust to the trucking life. I have only one problem, I haven't managed to find the way to override idling in my truck ☺️

My Trucking Journey from the beginning

Hello Everyone,

I wasn't able to write too much because I finally got my truck and trying to adjust myself to the trucking life :) . Everything has been good ' Knock on Wood' . I haven't had too much trouble and I hope I won't have too much trouble going on. I just had one minor trouble which I ended up somewhere stupid and took me almost 1 hour to get out but I finally managed to get out from there!!.

I have been able to see really beautiful places. Thats really good. I have only one problem, I have 2018 Kenworth T680 and I really like the truck except I wouldn't manage to find the way to run the Autostart. I tried everything. Its showing that it would autostart but it won't

My Trucking Journey from the beginning

Hello ,

This will be my last week finally! I have been in really beautiful places in West Virginia. I did my longest drives last two days. 300 miles in one drive! I am really proud of my self because when I first started I always felt sleepy after 2 hours. But even with 6 hours drive, I didn't feel sleepy. That's really good achievement for me!!. Below you can see some pictures from West Virginia

Here I am in the last week of training. Everything was good since I switched to the Dollar General account. I have really good trainer. He lets me do my thing, if I make mistake he lets me realize it first and after he would tell me I made a mistake. Everything is good. The bad thing is I am in South Boston VA right now and there is basically nothing to do after work. It is really boring right now. I thought to rent a car to go some place but because there is basically nothing, cheapest rental cars are starting from $100 daily. I don't want to spend that much money.

I am still debating about moving Florida or Texas but I decided to stay at the current account at least 6 months and see if I like Pennsylvania better 😁

If you ever start thinking of moving again, Dallas, TX and Houston, TX are both excellent locations for trucking, for local, linehaul, intermodal, regional, dedicated, and even OTR work. I live in the Dallas area and jobs in every type of trucking that exists, hauling every type of freight possible can be found here. So, if you ever want to relocate, anywhere in the Dallas area is a great place to be for your trucking career. In fact, you could relocate without having to switch to another company. Werner has plenty of work here in Dallas/Fort Worth. There is a Dollar General account here, plus opportunities for OTR and regional, if you wanted to try something different. Just thought I'd share with you the outlook of a trucking career in Texas.

Thank you for the recommendations. I am still debating between both of them but like you and most of the people mentioned Texas seems better choice.

Good for you hanging in, Bora. Yep, the starting part is the toughest part. Glad you got the $ accounts squared away, yet even the 'new' one you are on 'WILL' probably be difficult. It's only for a short while....HANG IN!!! Rooting for ya, u know!

Bora Bora ... still reminds me of 'Dora' ... and now, the 'Wooly Bully' song plays in my head, with the new lyrics singing.. Bora Bora .. instead, haha!

I hail (sorda) from Florida.. born in NY and partially raised there. Lanes for freight are AWFUL in FL; much better in TX. Think of the ports . . . and many are backlogged (and will be for some time...) and are paying really well; still WILL be in 6 months to a year.

I looked up S. Boston, VA . . . oh, WOW! Looks like 'our' little village; Shauck Ohio ... haha! Go see! Yep, no Uber or Lyft here, either..haha!

Anyway, as Bruce K. said . . . audio books! Podcasts! Have you listened to Brett's treasure trove of these?!?!?

Link to follow ( I hope! )

Brett's (and other!) Podcasts, for new & aspiring drivers~

Hang in, man.

Best wishes, always.

~ Anne ~

This is the song that I always remember when people say Bora Bora

Thank you for all the support. I don't have many friends here in USA so that forum really helped me a lot. Actually trucking community is generally so helpful.

South Boston is really for retirement lol

For some crazy reason I want to call you Bora Bora. Strange

Just wanted to comment on your comment about owner/operator in a few years. The best time for a company driver to become an O/O is NEVER (with rare exceptions)

double-quotes-end.png

Yeah, Where's PJ ?????? Spoke with him a week or 2 back... it's CRAZY. LOOK AT THE PORTS! No'tank'ya!

(Oh yeah, ^^^ too busy chasing rates around...probably!!) sorry.gif

~ A & T ~

Bora, MOST WELCOME!!!! Anytime.

ps: Who's / what's 'bora bora' anyway????? I kind of thought of 'Dora the Explorer' myself... (and Boots, of course! .. and the BackPack!)

Haha I am Bora which translates to Tempest in English. But there is also island called Bora Bora 😁
