Did you just call your truck fat. ..not off to a good start. Don't get mad when it leaves you on the side of the road.

HOS violation

This is one of the Grey areas of trucking that falls in the limited violation set. Are you technicaly ticketable yea, but most officers live in the real world to and you would need to find one who's wife is cheating on him so he is in a bad mood and looking to dish out pain. Is simple really, do you gain anything from interrupting your 10 and having to start over, no. So it's obvious something ****y happened and you weren't trying to slip a cheat in.

No company will hire a R.S.O.

That offense is quite old. I went to school with a guy that found a placeto work after serving 25 year sentence in jail. You'll be fine.

Places to see things to do

I fly drones during my good weather daytime freetime. Booked all day today for that actually. At night it's just tv or games. Other than that I like to find a nice steak to eat most weekends.

I overheard a discussion today

It was a good one. It was a husband wife team, and from the time i walked into the area this is the paraphrase of what i heard.

Wife: I didn't know how to drive, oh what honey, a month ago?(yes) One night he said he was too tired so he set the cruise control and stood up and said, "come hold this steering wheel" and he went in the back and went to sleep. Now i didn't know how to shift or anything, so i got into some mountains and couldn't keep it going. I was yelling to get him up but he wouldn't wake up, so i came to a stop in the road and pulled the parking brake , went into the back and woke him up and said, " honey we're stopped in the middle of the road" *they both laugh lovingly at their beautiful story*

At this point i'm very happy that i'm done with my business and get the **** out of there.

Done with containers

I find it much more reasonable to keep a backup rental car fund. Not to mention you can't guarantee what terminal you may return a truck to.

TMC vs McElroy

Oh I live in smyrna. I think it's best if you ask me specific questions about tmc as i try to avoid giving biased information and that's hard to do without a well focused topic.

Dock people

I worked 3rd shift stock for Kroger for nearly a year. I never saw a driver once.

For the few b and m I do frequent its kind of setup so that even if you saw me you wouldn't know I was the driver because I only deal with one representative and otherwise im just shopping or using the restroom while waiting.

Signing Up For Trucking School w/a Few Surprises

Yoh don't have to pick a company that has required long term team driving.

Your school may require the exams first but mine didn't. In fact I was the odd one of for going there with it done already.

Ya Tmc was sending those kinds of shut down if you need to then just shut down like 5 states until further notice. I'm not in the area so I consider myself lucky.

Mandatory shutdown

Tmc did a mandatory shutdown of trucks in several states due to the weather. First of this shows how committed to safety they really are. I'm curious if any other companies did this though.
