Dad Is Missing

Thank. You Thunder. Thats what is weird. His phone rings about 5 tines before vm so I dont think its dead. The police were called and asked if he was in an accident or arrested.( never been arrested< before but trying anything) Just hurry up and wait I guess./b>

That is a tough one Desiree. There are many factors that could account for him not answering the phone. Maybe he got a few hours of sleep and rolled on, or his phone battery is depleted (going straight to voice mail ?), or maybe he is in a no service area... etc.

Have you tried calling the state police for, god forbid, any accidents involving the type of truck? I am not sure how that works, but it is worth a shot. I would just be careful not to panic and possibly put him in a tough position.

I hope he gets home safe to you.

Problem is is that he only takes a load once in a blue moon. Hes not a typical driver. He is driving a douley pick up with a flat trailor attached oh and no cb

Just a thought, Does he have a usual truck stop that he hits? If so give them a call and ask for them to spred the word that you are looking for him, also have someone spred the word via cb Hope all turns out fine!

Dad Is Missing

My Dad left Friday night to take a load from Ohio to Arkansas. A 12hr drive each way. To be delivered Sat. Morning. He called last night at 10 pm lots of traffic and bad accidents he said so he was pulling over near cincinnati to sleep. 5 hr drive home. Noone can find him. Not answering his phone. This has never happened before. Even if he slept all night long he should have been home by now. What do we do?

Straight Backing

I agree. Right now i driva a 24ft box truck and drive a local route. Majority of my stops have no lines so i always find something as a marker.sometimes its as simple as the bumpers or tire tracks... fins something as a guide when backing. It helps tremendously!

Any special tips for this skill?

Yes. Always focus on your reference no matter if it to your left or right. The other day,I had to focus on a truck because there was no lines.
