Going to Midwest Co/Dairy

Have fun you're in for a ride remember be easy on the brakes because the surge from milk will rock your world brother, also remember the guys we work with at these milk bays can be ****s and are very anal about things. Good luck out there and practice backing as much as you can because some of these milk bays can be a bit tricky to get into.

New E-log Rules

That's fine and dandy I'll work for a company that has older equipment in their very law it states except trucks model year 2000 and older so either way works for me I'll get in an older truck and keep on trucking the way I want regardless.

1 at fault accident

No if none was called it shouldn't pop up on your MVR I would go to your dmv and see if it is In fact on your MVR if it's not there than you don't even have to mention it.

Tad nervous

You made the perfect decision driver I'm glad you didn't go for it and get hurt or worse I would recommend if they won't send you with a trainer and dropping your load I would find a new company.

My best advise is what ever gear you climb in go two gears lower for the down grade do not use your jakes if there is snow on the ground that can end very badly for you and anyone around you, I use my trailer brake to slow me down when going down a mountain or steep grade when I can't use my jakes but be warned if you pull that to hard it will swing your trailer like a baseball bat I would ask one of the other drivers to run with you and let them know why you are uncomfortable and I'm sure they will help you out the best they can.

What Trucking GPS's do you reccomend???

I like the Rand McNally but the best thing on the market is the Rand McNally Motor Carrier's Road Atlas every and I mean every driver should have one of these and use it to plan your route before you leave. The GPS should only supplement our atlas.

Most miles legally in 11 hours?

Running legal on my logs i have pulled 786 miles in a day but 805 is quite the feat to accomplish not saying if I run more or less miles than that a day right now but I will say I know from experience that a 800 mile push is Damn hard drive

Poetential solution for drowsy driving

I'm not going to lie I often drive for around 800 miles a day and but I wouldn't risk this it's something cool to think about but in the end your going to end up with a lawsuit and no company and someone or possibly a lot of people are going to end up hurt or dead. When I was in Iraq and Afghanistan we learned to operate on very little sleep but this wouldn't even appease me while I was deployed. Overall cool thought but no it work what so ever.
