Trip planning tools.

Hello MR. Packrat.

At my 2year mark, I decided to take a local job @ FedEx ground. December 14, 2020. I crushed my left hand and now I have a permanent disability. 1 1/2 yrs later I returned to my job. My PTSD from my accident made me realize I can’t do the job any longer. With my disability and my insecurities, I wasn’t sure if another company would hire me. So, I made a very foolish move and went O/O.

From time to time I come across drivers that ask for help understanding trip planning. I’ve search the Internet, can’t find any helpful websites. Does anybody know of any websites that will help me help others?

My update

Now...what he should have said is...I wanted to be home every night on a schedule and be home for my family....but instead he created a syndrome.

You think I’m incompetent! Creating a false syndrome! Correcting my wording! I know what I said and yes there is medical research being studied on this. Article is in the workshop.

My update

Around June, of 2016 I discovered TT, while I was doing research on the Trucking Industry. Thanks to Brett for his passion, dedication, this outstanding website along with moderators and members helped me in my decision to enter this intricate industry.

November, 2016 I received my CDL and went to work for May Truck CO. as a OTR solo refer driver in December 2016. Around my 1.3 yr mark with same company, I started to get the Trucker Syndrome. (More on Trucker Syndrome coming soon)

April , 2018 I decided it was time to get out of OTR and find something more relaxing,less stressful. December, 2018 I gave my notice, turn in the keys, went home to start my new journey.

January, 2019 I started my new job with FedEx, as an line haul driver on a dedicated route. M-F weekend off, home daily with choice of doing an overnight run to Cali. It’s much more relaxing than what I endured in OTR. After I get few wks experience I’ll be writing on local job.

Hello All!

I have been trying to dip my toes into the world of CDL training info and I have to admit it can be quite overwhelming. I have a million questions on hundreds of topics but I have a huge question that will help me make my next decision.

A little backgrounds on what I think I want my end goal to be.. I want to be an OTR (o/o is the true end goal) driver because I really don't have much holding me here in Indy and I would be fine with working as many days as I can fit on the calendar. Maybe, IF i ever get enough experience and everything works out, I think i would be cool to haul oversized loads or airplane parts. Like I said, I'm just getting started on my research so I'm just playing around with ideas in my head on possible options for my career path.

I have one major question that I can't find an answer to yet. If I am understanding the CDL training correctly, to become an OTR driver you will need to have experience with a trainer who you will ride with in their own truck on runs. Am I understanding this correctly? If I am, is there an alternative to doing an OTR training? Without going into too many details, I wouldn't and I doubt the driver would be comfortable with that temporary living situation.

Thanks in advance for all your help.. and for reading my ramblings :)
