Flatbed Help?

So Ive been doing flatbed a couple months now and decided a ladder would be a huge help! But im stuck on where to put it? I have a 6 ft. Ladder and my truck is a 2017 t680. I was originally planning on putting it on my cat walk and strap it up against my headache rack but my cat walk doesnt go all the way up to my headache rack. Ill try to get a picture of my headache rack here soon but any ideas guys?

A little help to a rookie please?

Okay so I'm on a load to Martinsville, VA but it was a tight one from the start and running on recaps by the time I get down there I'm only gonna have 1 1/2 -2 hours left to find somewhere to park if I'm doing my math right. I've looked on trucker path and it only shows one truck stop nearby, but I don't wanna put all my marbles on that stop because I've been burned before doing that. So does anyone know of any other places to park around martinsville?

I-81 through VA and PA?

I'm still a pretty new driver, and so far I have been running more southern but now I am on a load going up to Mehoopany, Pa. I've not dealt with the driving around the mountains and steep grades so much yet. Just curious as what to expect.

Nemo Plastics - Gainesville Ga

Don't know, I call the company when I want to know., I google earthed it and there is a Kagaroo gas station not far from it with truck parking in rear.

Yeah I seen that, but it's one of those smaller ones so sometimes it's hit and miss on whether there's parking or not lol

I start my 17 day Orientation tomorrow for Schneider Van division . The van division you are with a trainer for 7 days, it can be longer or shorter depending on how fast you learn from what I hear. If your going the tanker division that is like 30 days. I can re-post tomorrow if you like i will try to find out exactly what it is.

Please do.... My son who passed his CDL with flying colors, is trying to get me with Empire as he did and his argument is that a week on the road is not enough training to be driving solo...

Whip-stock, you are correct about riding with a trainer for only a week, that's the minimum, but it can go for more than that depending on how you progress and if your making right decisions or not, that's what I got from my recruiter anyway. I start orientation next week.

XM radio opinions

Really? hmmm...I'll have to check that out then. I could be wrong there, in which case, I'm set.

Only question for now is then, can I find a cable like the one I mentioned at a Pilot or a Loves? Or am I SOL on that one? I'm about to head out to AL here pretty soon.

Are you talking about a 3 prong RCA like red, yellow, and white Jacks or the single jack like a headphone? If it's the single, you can pick them up at almost any gas station, truck stop, or walmart for under $10 most the time. It's called an auxiliary cord.
