Earl J.'s Bio

Long time CDL A holder that just began the life of OTR in September of 15 (CDL 99) as a team driver for a Hot Shot company out of Knoxville TN. Will turn 50 in 2016 and have to say this has been the best career move I've ever made and this year my Fiancee will be joining me as my Co-driver.......Life couldn't be better. My Fiancee joined me in May of 16 and we are having an awesome time out here with our new company V3 Transportation running a team Expedite Straight truck. So yeah I guess life can and did get better.

ELD mandate compliance?

With my old company we had the JJ Keller that was tied into the trucks system and ran off of a Tablet, it worked well.

Forgot to mention that the Iowa 80 in Walcott is totally awesome and no one mentioned it also had a Dogomat where you can wash your dog if you have one, we've used it a couple of times which is awesome cause there's not really any good places out here for that.

Why are fleet OTR trucks often cramped for living space?

Oh, as for time-sensitive freight as perishables from California to New York with loads of fresh cherries and cheese?

There is the super fast jet-powered aviation industry with cargo planes that will get there in about 5 hours flat!

Remember inventors Orville and Wilbur Wright?

In a hurry to move it a LONG way? Call airline cargo and clipper service!

Just to let you know that you don't have a clue about the real world and cost, I recently took 2 pallets to the airport in IA going to PA and loaded them on a small twin prop plane, which is way more economical than your jet powered cargo plane. Cost to ship this time sensitive freight $36000 that's straight from the mouth of the salesman in charge of the customer that the freight was being air freighted to.

How does a dog get into the cab of a truck anyway?

We have a Chocolate Lab and a Boxer with us on our truck, the lab is almost 3 and the boxer is only 8 months and they both jump up catching the steps as they go up with no problems. The lab has been doing this for over a year now and taught the boxer how to do it. We just make sure the seats are all the way back and the steering wheel lifted all the way up if getting them in on the driver side. Hope this helps.

Couldn't believe what I saw

The root of his problem was that he had been drinking so much that he was trunk.

He couldn't have been trunk cause he was drinking barks root beer!
