Some days are just harder than others .

I imagine that has a lot to do with years of experience versus my 3 weeks otr .

I absolutely enjoy driving....I wouldn't do it if I didn't but with only a limited time on the road my lack of conditioning as well as some expected stressors can make some days heavier than others .

Am I the only one who has ever breathed a sigh of relief when qualcomm beeps and says

You have 1 hour and zero minutes left of your drive time .

Some days I hit the 10hr mark and cant believe the day is that far gone....other days I pray for that beep which can't come fast enough.

My major rookie mistake

A driver can triple and even quadruple check but the fact is that it's so slow moving a loaded rig from stop to get the hell moving we will always be at the mercy of slow to react personal vehicle drivers .

New layout for the forum

I restarted the cell and no change. So you get an idea what I am talking about.... Your pic frame is nearly to full windows worth before getting to the posted text in landscape.

New layout for the forum

On portrait mode the user/avatar tag is longer than the posts. As in manydown scrolls to get to the text post. In landscape mode on you last post Brett...your user/ avatar is like 4 times longer than your post...scrolling down.

Prior to this recent change i did not have to scroll anywhere near as much in portrait or landscape .

New layout for the forum

The individual thread posts are enormous now...As are the avatar pics. I need to scroll down a lot ...not sure I like the new format . Side by side formating is fit to screen though .

Frustration

Patience is not only a virtue...it's an absolute necessity in Trucking .

Hang in there . If you can't get thru the preliminary process you are going to go insane when you're at shippers and consignee ...never mind the traffic...the qualcomm failures.... the dm that do not respond ....the wait for a shower in the Pilot...parking in the pilot....the price of food .... etc etc ad nauseum .

Bottom Line...If you want it...hang in there .

Off duty time

You can go off duty on the logs...but it does not extend the day. Your 14 HR clock starts the second you go On Duty for thqt day and need to get your On Duty Driving done in that window .

I would not complain about the load but I would definitely advise dispatch that it's nearly impossible to run 750 mi a day under HOS .

I'm running loads with a trainer...and he says 2 HR for every 100 miles. pulling hills...loop roads around major cities and a 64 mph governed truck .

650 mile a day trucks is stretching it on else's .
