Rob S.'s Bio

Started with Swift as OTR. It's a fine company. Drove a yard goat at a distribution center for them for a few months too. Now I drive local food grade tanker for a different company.

Maybe a serial killer...

I wouldn't worry about it, what are the odds that two serial killers would be in the same truck?

Truck Wash Tickets

Is this for a tanker wash or a reefer or ? I've never heard of this and I'm curious. For our tankers we have organic and non-organic sanitizer but that's all.

Winter Driving: Drive to Survive

When I was OTR my approach was to check the weather on the NOAA app. Then check roads through whichever state I was in. The company policy was to only use chains to get to a safe place to wait. If we couldn't go 35mph safely, consider parking. Always communicate with the DM.

Where I am now is much different. I pick up milk from the farm and deliver to a creamery. Local, hourly, daycab. We are expected to chain up and keep going. It's even more important to stay in touch with the dispatcher. If a facility is inaccessible we may be routed to the yard.

In the several ice and snow storms that I've worked here the approach has been, slow down. Communicate. Slow down some more. Keep chaining until you're out of chains. No need to rush, we're paid for all on-duty hours. When you get home, come back in 10 hours.

Service Dog for School bus driver

It sounds like you want legal advice. That's not what we do here. It also sounds like you're expecting push back from your employer. Are you sure you want a job where your company is looking for ways to get rid of you?

Acceptable to Ask the Yard Dog?

I was a yard dog at a large DC prior to my current gig. Only once did I decline to help a driver. He dropped his trailer without lowering the landing gear. I might have helped him with that but he also was in the wrong location and claimed ignorance when I asked him about it. This place was really well laid out and marked. I told him some time spent cranking up a trailer would help him remember next time.

That's a link to their site. The landing page has a video that's a lot better than any pictures I could take.

I don't remember. There's a water park underneath it though. It's kind of a big deal when they landed those 747s at the tiny airport across the highway.

I guess you're already on your way for another load by now. Maybe take some of the heat with you please. I did my 12.5 hours and now my weekend starts. Ahh, the local life.

Favorites on I-80

McMinnville is my home town! Where is your delivery? What time? Our yard is in the middle of town at the creamery. The nearest big truck stops are on I-5 at exit 278. Mac is about 45 minutes from there. The main attraction in Mac is the Spruce Goose museum. I'm not sure if they'll let you in with a trailer though, might want to call first if you decide to try it.

Hay load gained weight.

I recall picking up empty aluminum cans that were bound for a bottler. Their biggest concern was that my empty must not have any hay in it. When they said this I thought it was ridiculous. What moron would ship hay in a box? Apparently it's a thing.
