Is my MVR acceptable???

I doubt you would be hired with two recent suspensions, plus the SR22 requirement on top of that. You record makes you an extra high risk for an insurance provider.

Hey Love’s: it’s 10 o’clock, do you know where your truck stops are?

This looks like a great example of why it's good to have an "A", "B", and "C" plan on where you may want to park for your breaks long before that time draws near.

A spot like the one you used is a good one to keep in your notes for some future time.

That's a lot of miles in a shift. It will be slower tomorrow with the Cali 55 MPH statewide speed limit.

My Prime Upgrade / First Month Solo Experience

Two tips for you:

1. Never back completely under the trailer until you do a GOAL to check the height. Every Single Time.

2. A 12" piece of a 4" X 4" is the perfect tool to hold the fifth wheel height perfectly level. Stows easily in the side box, or beside the passenger seat. It can also be used as a makeshift wheel chock.

"6 more weeks of Winter", Phil predicted. Tack on another 6 weeks for parts of Wyoming. No bugs on the windshield today.

Then I parked at Little America and it was a completely different landscape sight.

I was thinking about this earlier...your own company.

What's the name of your business, PJ?

If these were torqued to 350 to 400 ft lbs, how did two suddenly just disappear?

Thank you everyone who has responded and push back on me. I’m listening and learning and evaluating etc etc.

Not going to respond on this thread anymore- BUT- I am listening and taking my licks…

You would probably see a quicker answer from the OP via the YT channel.

There has to be a mentality with people who want to do the Dollar Accounts.

Please explain this statement to us, Larry.

This was a Two-fer: The shipper's location was unreal and so was the consignee's.

I told my dispatcher these two are on My Blacklist.

Why no restrooms in semi-truck sleeper cabs?

Truck crash yesterday on I 465 near Indianapolis

I missed that the other morning by 10 minutes! I was just past it when it happened, and heard about it on the CB.
