RYDER

They got the new contract for our Goodyear account and I’m wondering about switching over to them or transferring to another account with J.B. Hunt. I have no complaints about my current company but I like running the Goodyear account and I know if Ryder doesn’t uphold to their word I would have any problem getting back on at J.B. Hunt.

I run the Rand 540 (I think), it’s the 5” screen and it’s 5-6 years old...never had a problem. Knocking on wood now. But as Scott said, their Atlas never breaks down

What are your personal positives and negatives regarding jockeying a rig for a living?

Well in general half of the negatives aren’t true and the other half you’ll stand a chance to encounter no matter what walk of life you choose

Cold Encounters With The Elements

I’ve started a dedicated route up through Colorado each week. Probably not the best time of the year to start a Colorado route.

Trucking under Democratic or Republican Government

What Old School said...you’ll have a lot of people trying to push their beliefs as to how bad or good it is under one party...don’t believe the hype..

According to yearly average is the cost of diesel was lowest in 2016 and went up in 17, 18 and 19

Welp, As someone who has to pay for fuel , here is something most company drivers don’t think about. Since we have become energy Independant, our fuel costs have steadily gone down I spent $73000 in fuel in 2018 I spent $65000 in fuel in 2019 And fo far in 2020 im at $31000 (I did sit for 7 weeks due to covid). We have 4 months left in the year but i dont think i will spend $34000 to even come near last years numbers.

If it was by popular vote new York, California, and a couple other states would decide our leaders, and we don't want that. About the mask, can you really believe to the people on TV that has second guessed this whole plandemic all year?

But like said above : its either mobs or jobs.

But no matter what you believe hope you stay safe.

Know if it was by popular vote then each and every person would Would count one vote so no matter where you lived your vote would be equal to any other person

Newbie Questions

You don’t need to know how to work on a Diesel engine or really the mechanics of the engine. You will need to be able to learn some things as to how your brakes work (part of the CDL exam). And they’ll teach you things about the truck in school also. But it’s pretty basic stuff that you’ll need to know in order to do a complete and proper pre-trip.

What is your trucking pet peeve?

Drivers that are too lazy to properly dispose of their bodily excrement’s weather liquid or solid so they just throw it in the parking lot.

Terminal rats and super truckers
