Victor C. II's Bio

Hi I am Victor Canfield II, I am getting ready to go into the trucking industry! I have worked previously at 4 farms 2 of which were dairy, one that was a apple orchard farm and one that was just a plain hay farm. Loved working at all of them. Then I went to work where I am currently working until I am out of CDL school. I really started to fall in love with big trucks when I was eight to ten years old when the first few times that I got to ride in I think either a Freightliner or Volvo Semi with my Uncle Bob who I got to go on a few rides with him on a few loads while I lived out in Colorado. I have never lost my love for trucks and equipment from that time on. I now have my CDL license as of 3/02/2017. I will then most likely to start my trucking career at Swift Transportation where I hope to do flatbed and specialized freight! I am definitely a family oriented guy here. I also like a good quality of life with good family quality time. I can't wait to begin this new adventure, because it is not just a job its a life style and a fun one at that!

I may well be headed to my next trucking company, it is a family owned company and they are good to their employees. I have listened to other employees. My main excitment is all in the fact that, they pay $.46 a mile, $25 a stop after the first one, $50 for back hauls plus the $.46 a mile pay, and if I unload the trailer myself it is $60. As far as I know I will have most weekends off but that is up in the air because I am not sure. Holidays are paid.

Here is the best part yet, I will be trained fully, by the director or an really experienced driver. So I will be staying with the trainer until I get it down well and I am not going to be left in the air. Thanking the.Lord for the chance to interview with these people. Im not going to name the company till I am 100% sure of everything.

I was told I was unsuscribed! What happened.

True but I logged in and then went to my email and then clicked on the link to lead me to the conversation/topic and I couldn't see it because it kept telling me I was unsubscribed. No lie. Just before I asked the question I tried it, and it didn't work.

Got another question. Is there a problem with the email links that when I get an email that one of you have replied or commented on a topic? Everytime I go to the link in the email and I get a message coming across as this " You have been unsubscribed." I don't understand what they mean cause like I said I found how to log in and did and had no problem but as soon as I went to follow the link into the topic where one of you commented it gave me that message. confused.gif

I finally figured out how to sign in lol. I must have stayed off of the computers way to long of getting on here and literally forgot how to login. My bad. Just have to get acquainted with it again.

I went to get on trucking truth.com online from my computer, and then it tells me that I have been unsubscribed. How do I get into my profile from my computer? Kind of strange cuz I've never had a problem like this before. Thanks for all the help.

FMCSA to ask White House to clear split sleeper berth pilot program

double-quotes-start.png

The agency also announced that 240 drivers have been selected to participate in the program.

double-quotes-end.png

Well there's no shortage of good data on whether or not using a flexible split sleeper berth will work. We used a system with a flexible split sleeper for decades!! Millions of drivers used that system for many decades. But yeah, go ahead and "test it" to see if it works.

Idiots.

I wish they would just be honest with themselves and admit the best system was the one we had for like 50 years. They changed something that didn't need to be changed:

  • 10 hour drive time
  • 8 hour break
  • Split sleeper berth option:
    • Minimum of 2 hours per session
    • Two sleeper berth sessions must total 8 hours
  • 70 hour rule

That's it. Simple as that. Excellent system that never should have been changed.

Beautifully said Brett Beautifully said. That 14 hour clock made me so mad I cant tell you how many times it got under my skin. Iched just like a flea.

Ok then how did these companies like Knight, Swift, Prime, Roehl, Boyd Bros and other such companies ever get started if they never got started because they were waiting on the "RIGHT" time?

Why do you not promote OS to 'Super Moderator' when he's clearly the next TruckerMike?

double-quotes-end.png

Cuz there's no such thing as Super Moderator.

smile.gif

As good as TruckerMike was, Old School is even better because he not only has more trucking experience but he has 30 years of business experience and he's a family man. So Old School has a wealth of knowledge and experience that is both incredibly deep and wide.

I guess I could update his title if you guys think I should. We wouldn't use "Super" though. It would have to be a more professional title.

I say it would be an incredible honor to do for Old School! Yes please do!

Load boards for new OO

Norm OOIDA has a load board and they also tell you how to look for them. I have been doing a lot of studying off their site. Very informational and they are brutally honest. They do not sugar coat anything. Rober kiosaki says that if you are waiting for the right time to come, it will never happen but he also says you MUST be educated on what you set your mind to and you cant go out blind and expect to win. I would recommend you watch ALL of the OOIDA videos and then decide if you want to be an Owner Operator. It is expensive but as anything nowadays everything is expensive and PLEASE dont make the mistake of making the assumption that you will be rich in a few short years of trucking. You will be so very disappointed.

Not saying your making those assumptions or uneducated just want to warn you because running a business takes a LOT from someone in these days but if you dont mind the challenge go for it. I would stay a company driver for at least 3-5 years before swiming in the pacific ocean of trucking right away.

God bless
