Walmart Pickup Is Awesome

I too enjoy the experience of people watching at the local Wally World. I will admit to being a #WalMartian! #WeComeInPeace now, if your “Shopping” for a lil Love I recommend either Produce or the Pooch/Dog isle. You either find a Healthy Fit Philly ready for a couple good “Drop & Hooks”, or you find a Gold One who Also Loves Dogs! That’s when I unveil my secret weapon, I set my Cute Ell Bee to “Stun-Ner” & let my Pooch bring in the cuddles. If you see a Betty in the Cat Isle, WALK AWAY! They are not called Cat Ladies... they’re called “The Crazy Cat Lady”! Last thing you need is to find “Ms. Claude Balls”

What about the WALMART’s that are not easy to get into with the truck and trailer? Can this be an issue?

Also, using this service denies the discriminating trucker the unique inside WALMART experience. I always think that the future Mrs. Bruce K might be lurking in a WALMART store. Usually the only candidate is the greeter.

Battery Jump Box

A service call to have someone come out to Jump your Rig if your batteries run down will probably hit you for around $400-500 bucks. But, here’s a little help. I purchased this Jump box at Walmart for about $100-150. Money well spent; I have jumped other rigs with it (had to test it before I used it on mine, hehe), & I have also jumped my own truck with it. Overall time & financial savings have been more than a solid return on investment. If you go looking, make sure you get the model Rated to Jump RV’s. Yes you can get Jump Boxes for around $50 bucks; but those are not designed to jump a rig & will not be Hurky enough to do the job. If you have ever been held up due to a dead Battery 🔋you know how much something like this is a necessity. Comes in handy while camping as well, it has 4 USB ports, a light, & a small air compressor. Cheers

Wal Mart Parking

“Snitches get Stiches. *****es get Switches” As one who Dealt with waking up to find the trainers’ random “questionable Bottle of fluid” normally in a cupholder near where I slept, Yeah it’s sucks.... but Deal with it. We all deal with it.

If your ****tin’ under your trailer, it’s not my business. I only can control myself... I hold myself to a higher standard; Choose to poop in a receptical as were humans that have invented Fire & Toilets. I just don’t have the time to “Give a 💩Poop” if another driver is “dropping a load” under his trailer. As long as it ain’t my trailer.

Walmart Pickup Is Awesome

Just tried Walmart pickup for the first time. GAME CHANGER!!!! Usually I find myself, if I need to hit the Wally World, having to schedule a stop into my route at one with Trucker parking; I rather have to do the chore of shopping when it’s hitting my 10 than try to run through on a 30. Well.... First thing: THERES AN APP FOR THAT! You can save commonly purchased item on the App. Makes building shopping list “peasy peassy Japanesse” Second: they bring it right out when you arrive. I maneuvered the rig to an area close to the “pickup” parking spots, & they rolled my groceries right to the rig.

THEY EVEN GIVE YOU A GOODY BAG!!!

In & out, I was done grocery shopping in 15 minutes; that is 15 minutes from When I punched “Off Duty” to when groceries were completely away & I was waiting to complete a 30. Got to walk my Doggo! 😁

Totally totally TOTALLY worth it. It’s Free! Just download the “Walmart Shopping” app. Plan your route through a location with pickup, & enjoy the Freedom & ease of Shopping! Not to mention the time savings. Cheers fellas!

Helpful Equipment For Truckers

This is a Great idea! True Trucker Ingenuity right here!

My stop fits in the holes no fastening or on fastening to do.

What I made was cheaper than buying a hitch pin. I checked it out. The very first one I made was with black pipe. Second use it was cut in two.

Not really; the tough part is the holes are sized a specific diameter. I don’t know about a trailer hitch pin, if it’s stout enough, & also stout enough not to be Bent due to the sliding force of the trailer

Wouldn't a trailer "hitch pin" and clip be easier, cheaper and something I already own?!?

That is Creative & a nice touch. My only question is how easy is it to move Hole to Hole & take off? What I like about the one I grabbed at TA is it just slide in & slides out.

My tandem stops cost less than $10.

Helpful Equipment For Truckers

A few little pieces of equipment I recommend... I am a “Night Driver” meaning I prefer riding while everyone else is “Night Night😴”. Recommend getting one of the C Cell or D Cell Mag Light flashlights. Little trick when trying to hit a Parking Slot or a Dock at night, I lay the mag down at the edge of the Line I need to hit with my Driver side Trailer tire. So no matter how hard it is to see or how well lit the lot is (or is not), I can see the mark I need to hit to get my trailer in without tagging someone next to me. This is NO REPLACEMENT FOR G.O.A.L.!!!! PURELY SUPPLIMENTAL!

Also, if your solo, you can find at TA’s across this great land, “Trailer Slide Stoppers”. I recommend them. I use one every time I pick a load. If your solo, this removes the Guess Work/Luck involved in shifting your Tandems & saves you MUCHO time & Effort. Simply Place it in the Hole in front of the Hole you need to hit with the pin, pop your Tandems, & Slide them till they hit. Then set your breaks, walk back & admire your perfect pin placement as you remove the stopper & proceed on your merry way. I am not a fan of Guess work, & this little piece of equipment is well worth the 15 bucks I spent on it.

I am sure there are other Cheat Codes more experienced drivers know & use. Feel free to add your 2 Cents, I am a Pup, & know I am still Green in comparison to more seasoned Road Warriors. Cheers All

Paying Dues: Enduring "The Suck"

It’s been a while. Someone (@Amery2umomAnne) found me on Twitter, & reminded me of this forum. I just RENEWED my CDL again... I am still driving. The sock was hard. The company that did give me a chance, The company that gave me my opportunity was Carolina cargo. As a company I would not recommend, but as a driver who needed to get his foot in the door and his butt in the driver seat, the company suited my needs . This is the fun part, two of the guys I went to school with recommended me to their company. Their company, I had previously rejected my application, gave me a second look. I have been driving for May trucking company for going on two years now. I have not had much time to keep up on the forums, as I have been a very busy driver. But I say this and thanks. My buddies kept me going, as well as this forum. My story proves the point, yes it is true that where there is will there is away, but also where there is support there is bolstered will. I am going to make it a priority the next couple days to look through the forum and add my two cents. I am still here, I am driving, and I am proud to be a member of the fraternity that is the highway men. We are the feet on which America moves. I will be around #Cheers my Handle on 19 is “Drac-Roast”.

That's what his Bio info shows. Hasn't posted but a couple times since this thread. Doubt he still drives. Who knows?
