I could not believe it.

I was in my parking spot just watching the truck stop funnies. This guy in the fuel island could have backed straight into a parking spot after fueling. I watched him work at it to turn around and pull straight into the spot.

My question is, what are some funnies you have seen?

How do you feel about driver facing cameras?

Crash

This is why I welcome the driver facing camera. It saved me that time. The safety director said that I did everything the way it should be done in that situation.

Hello

I now work for Bay and Bay. I am doing a dedicated UPS account, hauling Ferguson supplies. It is based out of Waterloo IA. I never go east of Ohio. It is mostly Mn, Wi, IA, and ND. Sometimes I go to Nebraska. It is only Ferguson stores I go to. If anyone doesn’t know, Ferguson is a plumbing and heating supply store. Some of the stores are really fun to back into. I will find that bad one and send in a backing practice. The best part is that I am home every weekend. Most of the time, I have a full weekend. And I still get 2500-3000 miles a week.

Hello

I haven't been on here in a while. I almost quit driving the way I was screwing everything up. I had to take time to concentrate on driving and get better. Some people say I take turns too wide now, but at least I don't hit anything. I am getting really good at backing now. I am at the point now where I should have been a year ago. It just took me longer to get there.

I am now working for a different company on a dedicated account, just running the upper midwest. I am home every weekend, still running about 2500 miles a week.

A Critical Piece in The Puzzle of Success at Trucking

even if it means you sometimes get stuck doing something you don't want to.

Like that blindside backing off a busy 4 lane road in downtown Chicago IL. it payed off though, my next load was 2100 miles to Stockton CA.

Where to get a Mini refrigerator?

I have a mini fridge that I got at Walmart. I set it behind the passenger seat on the floor, plugged into the inverter. it works good, doesn't move around at all.

Joke for today.

A fella walked into a doctor’s office and the receptionist asked him what he had. He said, “Shingles.” So she took down his name, address, medical insurance number and told him to have a seat. Fifteen minutes later a nurse’s aid came out and asked him what he had. He said, “Shingles.” So she took down his height, weight, a complete medical history and told him to wait in the examining room. A half-hour later, a nurse came in and asked him what he had. He said, “Shingles.” So she gave him a blood test, a blood pressure test, an electrocardiogram, told him to take off all his clothes and wait for the doctor. An hour later the doctor came in and asked him what he had. He said, “Shingles.” The doctor said, “Where?” He said, “Outside in the truck. Where do you want them?”

Question

how do the moving trucks, for example allied van lines, drive in residential areas that are non truck routes. i am just asking because every house is not on a truck route. some of those roads are small.

Perfect place to park

If anyone is looking for the perfect place to park, I found it. It is at the Walmart in Winona, MN. It is the only place in this town you can park overnight and not get towed. They have space for 4 trucks. There is a walmart, target, menards, 3 places to eat, and 2 haircut places all within walking distance of the truck.

Crash

I think there was something wrong with him, he told the cop his friend was on the way with a tow truck. after everyone was gone, he drove away. i figured he will get caught eventually.

Crash

I had just past red dog road when he turned in front of me, and he was sober. he said his brakes failed, but i don't understand why he would turn in front of me in that case.

Crash

Google Map of the crash site

if you look at the map, i was going west on hwy 30 and a jeep was going east. i just past red dog road when the jeep turns in front of me, and i hit it. i have been trying to figure out what i could have done different to avoid it. i see nothing i could have done. i was only doing about 40 mph at the time. my question is, would you expect the jeep to just turn in front of you like that?

i received no tickets and we both walked away. amazing enough, he drove away after he got his ticket from the police. my truck had to be towed only because the headlight and marker lights where gone. the officer told me not to drive it that way.

J&R Schugel or Prime

I work for J&R Schugel in the dry van division. I absolutely love this company. The only thing I don't like is no pets, but can live with that. They will keep you running if you want the miles and prove you can do them. I was sitting at the Kenworth dealer getting my truck fixed last week, which screws me up for milage, but nothing I can do with a breakdown. The good thing is, breakdown pay. They will always get you home when you want. When I go out from hometime, my dispatcher aways ask when my next home time is, and I haven't missed one yet, but might be late for this one because of the breakdown.
