Training isn't for me.

I also train in my terminal for women. We don't hire drivers that doesn't have any experience so its a lot easier for me. The recent one that i trained was from UPS, she was cool and been driving for 4 years. I don't know how other people do it with driver that doesn't have experience lol. Plus, I hate having another driver in my truck..feels like I dont have a privacy lol

I only train women in line haul division, no men :)

So I haven't been out here in a long time.

How is everyone?

Me?? I'm still trucking like most of us here, so far so good and I've been doing line haul for few years now.

I run a little under 550 miles daily with a wiggle 99% 5 days a week and no work on major holidays.

If you have any question regarding "ESTES" I will be sure to answer you the best that I can. Also some more info regarding LTL in case you have a question.

Be safe everyone! Miss ya all :)

I miss TT! Haha

Whats going on TT? Haha I've been missing a lot here. I've been so busy with trucking & personal life so wasn't able to check on here like I used to.

Everything is good to me. Still with the same company since I started driving. Still OTR. 2017 has been great. Ended my year accident & ticket free so I'm proud.

I remember the time when I just started haha! I can't even back up a trailer! Now its a daily routine to me to put that box in a dock.

I miss everyone! Bret, Gtown and all of ya! I work entire holidays to give people that has family the chance to be with their loved ones during those days..Now it's time to do my time off! Hahaha

I will be off for vacation again for a total of 18 days overseas. It's been an amazing journey! Everyday is a challenge. Trucking never gets old.

Thats all for now! Gotta get my laundry done hahaha! Happy trucking guys! Be safe!! 😊😊😊

Motorcycle permit

In the near future I will be attending Orientation with Maverick Transportation. My question today is I already have my PA CDL class A with SPTX endorsements. If I wanted to add Motorcycle to it as well I can go to Penndot take the written test and obtain a permit for it that is valid for a year. Because I currently hold a valid license of a different class I can practice on the motorcycle anytime I am home off work during the day until I actually take the driving portion of the test and get the new class added to my CDL. The permit is valid for a year.

I remember from the application they asked about any permits I have or have had in the recent history and for their numbers and such. These questions were in the Drivers license section of the application. Will having a motorcycle permit in addition to my CDL cause any problems or issues for my prospective employer? I don't think it would but I wanted to ask here to be more sure. God knows I have a ton of stuff to learn here.

No it's not gonna be an issue. They are more concern of endorsement on Class A. I have motorcycle endorsement with mine before I got a Class A. They added it with no problem with all the endorsements I have including the M. Hope that helps!

Real talk about money

I take home a little over $1000 every week after all deduction. I reset every week too so would say it's good money.

It really depends on how much miles you get and pay..I'm pretty happy with my money :-)

Are there generally Walmarts, supermarkets and grocery stores along a trucker's route?

Finding grocery is easy. Search a close walmart , target in the area then go to the dock area. Make sure you are not blocking anything. I've done it in all state , I park behind the building to where trucks normally dock. As long as you are not blocking anything they will not tow you out.

With all State I love Oklahoma City. Right there along I44 close to Love's you will see the biggest mall in Oklahoma, plenty of choices for parking. I normally go behind target..Theres Camera , plenty of lights so I feel safe. Take note that area is in the middle of shopping center!! Cinema, Mall and others..

Along I40 plenty of Walmart like Gallup, they have walmart thats very truck friendly. Wyoming has one too along Rock Spring..

If you also want decent food for stop I would suggest Nick's Barb-Q & Catfish along I40 exit 193 in Arkansa. North 40 Truck Stop along I40 in TN , Cowboys restaurant along I40 in Oklahoma who serve unli steak every weekend, Russel's Truck Stop along 40 just off Texas/New Mexico Statelane..

Those are just few of my fav stops to eat. Truck friendly!!

Tank Division

double-quotes-start.png

I called Superior Cariers today and ask them about the position they have. They will take me but I need to relocate to texas their hiring area which is Houston,TX or Pasadena. She said it gotta be 50 radius from the terminal.

She offered me $.52/ mile loaded $.42/mile empty.

I'm wondering if it's a good deal? I have my endorsement needed but I need to get TWIC card.

Or do you have any other suggestion for tank/chemicals/food grade that do regional?

Rick
