DOT physical Question.........

I'm not a man, so I'm glad I don't have to through THAT part. But being a woman, we go through a LOT of probing in other areas that are VERY unpleasant. So I can understand the malaise. But it being a physical....you get undressed and put on that gown. It's just the way it is.

Bringing this ON TOPIC, anyone has experience with rail yards drop and hook? I'd love to hear more about it. :)

It's going very well. My instructors are quite happy with me. I've been doing great with up shifting, doing good with downshifting but need to learn how to "time myself" when going through lights changing from green to yellow to red...lol

I can blind side parallel park all on my own with no help, working on side sight park still bit gettin there quickly. I'm doing good with alley dock, had to practice with a 54 feet trailer last weekend, it does make some difference in a tight space.

I'm having a lot of fun learning. :)

Good luck with what's coming! Put your heart into it, breathe in....breathe out and you'll get this.

I want to pull a set of doubles! (curious)

I would assume that when you pull doubles, you never have to back up, correct? How does that work when you need to park for the night?

Truck Driver Knocks Down Fire Hydrant, Then Tries To Put It Back

I'd say it's more about the trucker being a bit out of whack, rather than the Swift company...lol

....what I want. Will start with dry van to gain experience in a safe manner. Then I'd like to go tanker, when I feel I can properly handle a rig.

Now I don't seem to read a lot about tanker drivers on here....is there actually as much demand for drivers? Do they have plenty of work?

Also, aside from Miss Sunshine, is there any other females on here who drive flatbeds?

Hrynn, so you're saying Roehls has a drop yard in Spfld? I'll call again and ask. Springfield is not a safe city tho...lol

Roehls home time + is not offered everywhere. I already called and asked, I'm in New England. All they offered was a week out, one day at home. Same as with any other company. :(

Clothing suggestions for winter

There is another thread on here about that, good stuff. I'd say however stay away from cotton, it holds on humidity and sweat and doesn't dry fast. UnderArmour is an excellent brand for base layers.

Oh well

I hope this is a VERY VERY OLD story, because nowdays, $30k wouldn't get you far for a truck, maybe an SUV.

But it is a good story.

I think he said it was at a Ford dealership...so I'm thinking he got a simple pick up truck? lol

It was a flat top, but surely brand new! It had gorgeous wood grain trims, the body was black with lots of shiny chrome. :)
