Trucking with a young family

Do a Google search for "Trucker Buddy" Its a program for teachers/students that is sorta like a pen pal on steroids. The kids can track where you are among other things. I don't know all the details of the program but I know they have a phone app. Wouldn't it be cool if your wife and kids could use your being away as a learning opportunity?

Pet peeve...

I had the same situation at a truck stop a few months ago. You would be surprised how simple it is to remove an apu muffler. Took about an hour before he moved to a diffent spot.

Best advice I ever got was "You're not learning to drive a truck, you're learning to pull a trailer"

Driving at night

I use yellow sunglasses at night and its amazing the difference it makes. Get a cheap pair and try them out. If it helps then drop some dough on a nice pair.

Mack Trucks

I know the Macks with a gold dog ornament have all Mack components. I've only seen one of these. It was a beat up yard dog at a Tyson plant. Until I was 13 years old I thought the only trucks made were Mack cabovers. Every male member of my family owned one. Another reason you never see them OTR is that they are very heavy and today's companies prefer trucks with higher MPG.

I would recommend Prime to anyone.

A PSA for those considering Prime Inc.

Also keep in mind it may not be a specific Prime policy but more likely indusrty wide. The government decides what drugs are not allowed and companies have very little wiggle room if any at all.

Weight distribution in winter

Been averaging 2800 miles a week. Having a good dispatcher is the key. 3 months out and I haven't had a 34 hour reset yet. He is the retread master.

OK. Would you prefer more weight on the drives in dry conditions also?

I can see that in slippery conditions having more weight on the drive would be better. Makes sense. Interesting point about the whipping effect. I hadn't considered the articulated nature of the beast. Thanks!

Driving style aside, is there any advantage to adjusting the weight on the drives/tandems?

In winter...

Normally I try to keep my drives and tandems evenly balanced. While driving in Wyoming during high winds I put extra weight on the tandems. What about on ice? Extra weight on the drives? Anybody adjust your weight distribution according to conditions?
