I got a spring in my step just hearing about that. And a big smile on my face. But betting on the drivers? Nay Nay

It's very good, I'm pretty sure they get their signal from Verizon.

Why do you need a CB?

After a long discussion, here on TT, we did get a cb. Took a week, trying to figure what we needed. Price, antennas, etc. We were over thinking it. We were thinking what a big hassel we're getting into. We bought a $45 one, hooked it up to existing cables and turned it on. Read the instructions, channel 19 for emergencies, skwelched it down and didn't hear much for 2 days. Then out of nowhere we heard "break lights!, break lights! After exit such n such! Blah blah blah!" Around the curve and over a small hill we see a mile or more of stopped traffic. 4 wheelers were turning around and going the other way! This was a major interstate in Georgia. We found out a twister whipped a tt on it's side and tore thru trees and huge billboards. We found out how long they were there, what happened, when they started to roll again. We got to warn drivers behind us to slow down. 45 bucks. No excuse.

Cant imagine what ur going thru but sharing is giving away some of the pain. We'll take some of your pain away and toss it aside. Hang in there.

White coat syndrome and blood pressure

That's interesting. I didn't know there was such a syndrome. I used to get mad with my parents that every time they went to the doctors' they'd get some new prescription. Whether pills or other procedures with other specialists. They had REALLY good insurance. Mom had 16 pills she took every day. They eventually killed her. They thought that doctors were gods. Whatever they said was from the highest authority. I couldn't change their minds that doctors look up in a book what ailments you have and the book says what pill to prescribe. If you want to get better, talk to a nurse. If you ask a nurse what they think of their doctors they'd say they are idiots. If it wasn't for nurses the doctors couldn't make it in the health field. I could write a book on the subject, but it's already been written. Find the cause of you're high blood pressure before your cork pops. Or go get your pills. It's your decision. Thanks for listening.

Truck issue

Did you get to do a regen? 1 mechanic said we needed to be towed in, the second mechanic said pull the brakes then set them again. Then the 7 seconds regen proceedure worked.

Moz, use ur daughters address. Change ur license over. I will probably get a post office box and send myself some mail with the license change. Patricia, you said you had 10 hrs of practice every day on the tarmac. You didn't have to share with 4, 8, or 12 other students? And they had automatics out there. Maybe that's why? Glad ur trainer is working out. We just went thru Georgia with the tornadoes. We had a blowout on a trailer tire, scared the bejesus out of us. Sounded like a bomb went off. No loss of steering control. That took a litttle over an hour to get fixed. Then later on we were stuck in traffic on I-75S, 45 minute behind where a tornado went thru and killed 5 people. God takes care of fools and truckers.

How seriously do you take health when trucking?

When we go to the TA or the Petro I always go to the salad bar only. But lately I'm getting vibes that I'm eating a bunch of chemicals and gmo's. I want to do veggies smoothies but can't figure out how to get to fresh veggies, then wash them, then blend them in the blender, then clean up after. Anybody do that?

That is really awesome. We had to use the chains going up the mountains on I-70. It wasnt an easy chore but a necessary lesson for me. Im just a passenger seat driver right now. Grew up in New York snow but 33years in Florida, well, i needed a refresher course. Feeling alot better about the snow, just need to get the clothes straighted out. Then i have to establish an address in Memphis and do the Swift training. Good luck to you. You sound like a go-getter. Thats very encouraging.
