There are no intelegent life forms born North or East of California........Yeah I said it!!!

Oh I forgot to add, I'd also really prefer to live in a state that hasn't run out of drinking water. lol

Sorry my pretentious Californian alarm just started going off and it won't turn off. Probably one too many Prius drivers running around hotboxing on their own farts on the way to Ikea. lol rofl-3.gif

East coast here, Columbia, SC to be exact, but I was born and raised in Dallas, TX. I do not, however, own a cowboy hat.

I'm not sure if you are aware or not, but you just described one of my favorite "South Park" episodes.

If this is true, just the apparent respect for "South Park", will allow me to grant you a fellowship in the Great Nation, That Is California.

Welcome in, my brother trucker. rofl-1.gif

That's actually what I was going for. I was thinking about the South Park episode when I wrote it. I was hoping someone would catch on lol.

I actually do love parts of California for a visit anyway, I just don't want to live there. Mostly because its way overpriced and overcrowded for me, and I'm a gearhead car enthusiast and Cali is bad for us with all their super restrictive modification and emissions laws (and crappy 91 octane premium lol). Also as others stated I like to live in states that offer me as much personal freedom as possible, and Cali is kinda the opposite of that. They seem to have a regulation or ordinance about everything. Its a beautiful state, just not where I want to call home personally.

Be Careful - Happy Thanksgiving

Potentially Deadly Prank Strands Trucker During Thanksgiving Holiday

That is terrible and I agree we need to be careful and stay safe out there. Part of doing that is maintaining proper following distance so that you can avoid an accident if someone suddenly stops in front of you or hits something. If the driver mentioned in the article had kept his distance, he wouldn't have wrecked and he would be home with his family today. Let it be a lesson to all drivers, we must do everything we can to maintain road safety at all times. Don't get lazy or complacent. Lives are in your hands, and not just your own.

Happy turkey day everybody! :)

Bungy cords can be dangers

Something that I have kept in my medical supplies for many years now, and has proven itself highly useful time and time again, is Australian Tea Tree (Ti Tree) oil. Get the 100% pure medical grade essential oil, and make sure the bottle says it is pure essential oil from Melaleuca Alternifolia (its latin name). Its a bit pricey, but it works very well for many things.

Tea tree oil is a strong antiseptic and antibiotic, a mild anesthetic, anti-fungal, antimicrobial, and has a pleasantly clean, bright, woodsy, masculine smell. It has an almost cedar and mint-like quality to it but definitely its own unique scent. It is safe to use at full strength directly on minor cuts, scrapes, insect bites, rashes, etc. It doesn't sting unlike alcohol, its good for skin problems, and it also helps remove necrotic (dead) tissue and promote healthy tissue regrowth on a wound. It also has an amazing ability to rapidly heal insect bites and stings, when I use it on itchy red raised bites after getting bit or stung by mosquitos or chiggers or fire ants and things of that sort, the bites are usually completely gone within a few hours after application of the Tea Tree oil.

I use it as a natural alternative to antibiotic ointment like Neosporin in many cases, and I feel it works better. I still keep antibiotic ointment in my supplies too however, as the ointment is better for deep cuts and lacerations. Tea tree is mainly good for minor surface wounds and skin irritations.

Weather App of choice?

I've been using the AccuWeather app for a while now and I like it pretty well. I like that it has detailed current conditions right now, as well as a "minutecast" forecast of the next 120 mins, hourly forecast for the next 24 hours, as well as daily forecast for the next two weeks, and maps, video forecasts, weather news and severe weather alerts. It can be set to always follow your GPS location and display weather for wherever you are or wherever you're going. Its a pretty full featured weather app.

Truck Drivers Make Thanksgiving Possible

Very true, the stores would be empty without truck drivers, which means no food for most folks (except people like Brett who raise their own lol)! Link at the end of your post is missing though.

What did you do before becoming a truck driver?

Worked in retail sales and management, new car and truck sales, worked my way up in the restaurant business for many years doing nearly every job (dishwasher, delivery driver, server, cook, kitchen expediter, bartender, shift manager, general manager), warehouse work (hand loading/unloading tractor trailers on the docks all day), landscaping, waterscaping, automotive repair, IT/computer technician, automotive pinstriping, new home finishing work (installing fixtures, shelving, mirrors, blinds, etc.), and customer service/sales at a vaping (e-cig) shop.

I am not afraid of hard work, I crave adventure and changes of scenery, I always enjoyed traveling and driving and especially anytime I got paid to drive for some aspect of my job, so I figured getting paid to drive a truck all over the country would be fun! :)

Trucker Paralyzed By Accident While Unhitching Trailer

Werner gives you one with your tool kit, it stays with you from truck to truck, when you quit, you turn it back in with the tool kit

double-quotes-end.png

What else is included in the tool kit?

This is of interest to me as well, as I am strongly considering driving for Werner soon.
