About Dem New Boots?

Ok so I learned to drive in tennis shoes didn't want to spend any extra money til I graduated. Treated myself to a real nice pair of Redwings yesterday steel toed, mens. Breaking them in today having second thoughts, they seem pretty big and clunky. Plan on keeping my feet warm and dry and safe. What do ya think? Keep em or not?

When I read the title of your post I grinned, because I knew that if you got off early on that day then you had made it through.

Holy mackerel what a ride!!

Just hold on tight, because if you think that part was a ride you've got some real challenges coming your way still. But, it's all good, and if you just keep at it you are going to be a real truck driver before you know it.

Keep us posted.

Thank you O.S. Someone did say or I read it somewhere I have only learned 2 percent of the business so far! Thank goodness you all will be here to help and guide me!

So this was to close for my liking

So I was running down to Boston early this morning when, well..... Just read this

Article

So the tractor trailer they mention was me. I was in the middle lane and she came up the left lane. Way to freaking close.

Heavy, I just started driving on public roads. (As a trucker of course) I am so happy you are ok! Be safe

Right Mirror Making Me NUts!

What is wrong with the right mirror?

It just doesn't give the same image as the left, always looks crooked to me and i bob and weave to see what i need to see. Guys on the general forum says it's not a problem that's just the way it is, get used to it. Slow and cautious wins the race!
