What kind of tunes yall like to listen to OTR?

A lot of octane or liquid metal, although recently I've been jamming out to Elvis radio. But I rotate the first two mostly. Then I'll either check in on some sports and see what the hell is going on, then I'm back to octane... may be addicted to octane. 😂

Prime drivers....

Thanks everyone!

I'll definitely remember that for next time. Because I killed my savings account 😂 Doesn't help the quote I got on the room went up 40 bucks after 3 hours. Maybe since it was the last room? Not sure but, way too expensive to be paying out of pocket especially when some of the hotels are pricey

Prime drivers....

Alright, may be a dumb question but, what are the macro codes for the prime terminals? I believe prislc? But I'll be heading to Springfield soon, and my apu can finally be fixed!! 😂 Hotel stays are expensive especially when I have to wait to get reimbursed.

Apu down!

Apu is down, not sure when it'll get fixed. It's a rigmaster, so not much can be done unless I get to a prime yard.

My question is, how do you over ride the 5 min idle? Its a 2015 freightliner, and all I know is, I didn't sleep well last night and now I gotta some how sleep later tonight. Or the next few days for that matter. I hate to idle but I can't sleep sweating or just hot in general.

Anyways thanks and be safe out there!

How Do Truck Drivers Deal with Insomnia?

I had that problem this past week. Even after driving a full shift. But I was heading home, so maybe I was a little excited to see my little baby and wife.

Update!

Well, I'm officially upgraded with JPT. On my 60 day probation, then I can take a passenger or a pet with me. Glad to finally be done!

Well it has been interesting. Last week I spent 12 hours to get unloaded which made me a day late back to Missoula, MT but I did everything I needed to do in a couple days. Crazy how things worked out, a fellow employee, josh brought in a load to the yard that delivers to Lewiston, ME. I'm about 200 miles from Lewiston, delivers at 0330. I honestly didn't think I was going to make it, I left out Thursday afternoon, shutdown early because I was way tired from being up super early. But I ran it, haven't had much time, it's been nothing but running! I was scared of the east, because of parking but I've stayed at rest stops, just been getting here early and shutting down. Seems to be working out fairly decent.

Other than that, once I get this to Lewiston, I'll be taking a few days off with the family. Should be a good week, be a little over 3,000 miles. Will def be my best paycheck that's for sure! Haha but yeah, things are going, still a lot to practice and learn but I'm getting better each day, feeling more confident in my abilities also.

Hope you all have a great week, take care and I'll check back in when I hit the road later this week.

Well... I survived the first wave

First load being solo, I had 5 stops. I can say I'm exhausted! Today was the big day, 4 deliveries. Made my first one in Seattle on time. Glad it was 2am in the morning since I had to back up on the street. Second place appointment was 4:45am... I get there at 3 am, park on the side and walk to the back door to see a sign that says 5:30 am receiving hours.... so I took a nap. First guy had a half a trailer to be unloaded by him and counted by them so it put me way behind. Was late for Costco dc but they took me anyways. I'm guessing since I was late they took there sweet time unloading me haha but once they did I took off to Tacoma, Supervalu.

Interesting place, parked by the meat dock to be told I need to walk a half mile to the other side where the guard shack is. It was 11 am he said to hurry up they close at noon. Luckily they took me so I made it and delivered everything. Two of them may have been late but at least it wasn't anything I did. May have got lost a couple times! 😂 Especially leaving SuperValu, tons of construction, trying to beat my 14 hour clock to get here in north bend wa, which I made with 10 mins to spare. 😂 Other than this first load. I'm just glad it's over. These multiple stop ones can be tricky and definitelyly was tested. I know things I need to improve on and go from there. Anyways, hope everyone had a great weekend and a safe one at that. Take care all. Hopefully tomorrow load goes just as smooth as these did..... 😑

Solo week!

Well I'm finally on my solo week. My first load is dailys meats. One stop in clackama, OR. Which is tomorrow at 9am, I'm about 25 miles away. Then four stops tomorrow. Two in Seattle wa, one at 3am the other 4:45 am. Sumner, at Costco for a 6:15am delivery, then the final in Tacoma at 9am... hopefully it goes smoothly. Super nervous since I'm finally out here by myself but I guess the next couple days will be the test on how I can do things out here. I'm hoping Tuesday goes well, sometimes places take forever to unload since they have to count everything so, I could potentially be late which would suck, because I'd like to finish early! So I can find parking. I'm sure it's a pain finding a place the later it gets out this way!! But oh well. I'll roll with whatever happens. Just happy to be making progress in my final step of the training program. Anyways, be safe and have a great Sunday and Monday everyone.

With summer approaching...

Yeah I was just curious. JPT has apu but depending how hot it is, doesn't do much!! At least we can idle if it's hotter than 80 or below 30 so. But I'm sure shielding off all the windows will help keep some heat out. Maybe not much but some is better than none!
