Well I'm screwed.

I posted this on crst lead drivers Facebook page which is ran by our safety department and our safety manager said this is not the whole story seeing we still have students driving for crst that have taken hoods off in truck stops... My 3rd co driver took out a fuel pump while still under contract and kept his job...

And we're off!

Santa Fe Springs!! I grew up "next door" in Downey.

Can't say there's much of interest there. Chris & Pitts BBQ is the local go-to for 'Que. SFS is the home of Laura Scudder potato chips. Ms. Scudder was the first to put chips in wax paper bags. You're in the middle of the vast suburbs stretching from Los Angeles to Disneyland.

Enjoy your trip over Cajon pass. (Hint: don't say "ka-john pass", locals will giggle. Say "ka-hone pass".)

My next load is going to the yrc in Downey ca

I'm pretty sure frieght is slow but..

Sometimes you get good loads, sometimes not so good. Do them all without complaint and your fleet manager will love you. Happy fleet managers tend to make happy drivers.

Also check to see if your company pays extra on those. At Werner, we get an extra $20 for loads that are less than 100 miles. I once had 3 trailer relocation runs less than a mile away. Did them all in about half an hour. Got 0 mileage pay, but made $60 in that half hour.

Crst don't do that... Trailer shuffle is 30 bucks to the truck... 15 for each driver... The short runs that more then 40 miles and less then 100 stop you from getting detention pay...

I never had to do city work in Chicago with crst thank god lol I hate that place... I had to do trailer shuffles in L.A and other cities just not Chicago... Freight is slow for a lot of people with crst.. Just hang in there will pick up soon... I've done a 34 once in the last month and that was q rolling reset....

That first year

Congrats Scott on the one year down and accident free to boot. No DOT inspections? Nice!!! We are going to start on our first solo load this week. Any advice, especially in HOS land, for a newbie team (of course, don't hit anything is #1 on the list)? Thanks in advance.

As a team hos is not that bad.. Try to run 9.5 hours each shift.. That way you can run on the 8th day... That's pretty much it just take it slow and use your head and you'll be fine.... Yeah no DOT inspections.. My co driver had 2 but I had none while I was driving...
