BK's Bio

I'm a 69 year old (as of 10/21) single male. Retired from a 49 year construction career and getting into driving because I've always been interested in professional driving and seeing the country.

Inward Facing Cameras & AI

I watched a video on YouTube put out by an obnoxious guy called Tim Travels who says he used to be an attorney. The video was all about this new camera policy at Prime and a company safety meeting held to assure drivers that the new system was to their benefit. I’m certainly not that familiar with the inner workings at Prime but I guess this issue has caused a major ruckus.

At Helwig we have the driver facing cameras and it’s a non issue for me. I’ve never heard anything about AI being used with the camera system, but we seem to be slow to implement new technology, probably because of the cost. Heck, I think our Omnitracs and navigation program came over on the Mayflower in 1620. (AD, not BC). Maybe that’s a blessing in disguise.

Laura still keeps in contact with Anne, I think.

As for the packrat, he got busted for faking his heart transplant and he resigned as a member.

Got my CDL license today through a private school and wanting to start OTR

Rodolfo, welcome aboard!

There is one regular member here who did team. He is Stevo and he was with CRST. Have you called them?

The company I drive for has only one husband and wife team that I know of. But each driver has to have at least 6 months experience. We have two other couples, but they each drive separate trucks. One couple tried to team but it didn’t work out as a team so they each went solo with the company to avoid a divorce.

Have you ridden as a passenger with the GF? If so, I guess you must have gotten along well enough to consider the team thing. But driving team would be different from just being a passenger. I’ve heard that team driving as a couple is very hard on a relationship. Have you really thought this through?

You might want to consider getting some experience as a solo driver before doing team. Honestly, I would be very nervous doing team with a new driver. I don’t think I could sleep for fear of an accident.

I wonder how unusual this is

Weighed out a load of dead cow and got this result. I’ll probably never see two identical axle weights again. First time in all my 17 million imaginary miles driven. Lol
