Check That Fifth Wheel!

Happened to me my first year...at our terminal. I was freaking out, a seasoned driver saw what happened. Thank God it was still on the rails. Helped me crank it up...this was at like at midnight. A lesson learned. Don't be in a hurry, don't take short cuts. Bad things happen when you're in a hurry.

This was crazy today. Ottawa Kansas at sunset...1/2 a rainbow. It was clear above the low clouds. Looked both sides to see if I could find the rainbow arc...that was a first.

Met my 1st "Karen" today @ gas station

Can't remember the name of the town...but a restaurant Northeast of Amarillo about 45 minutes, had a sign that said, "No Karen's allowed." I wanted to stop so bad, but time was tight.

After 3 months, Iā€™m quitting

Backing is the hardest part of this job. Been driving 3 years...took awhile figuring it out. Get out and GOAL. Part of the job...really going to hang it up over this? To me, team driving would make me quit before backing....I need my space. You can do this....easiest backing screws me up. Give me a challenge and I nail it. Last 2 deliveries were insane...East Coast, old outdated facilities. Nailed it both times. Watch your wagon.

Backing Needs So Much Improvement

Three years in and I still have my days. It took me a good 18 months before I got comfortable backing. Seems the harder a spot is, the better I do. Delivering right now to a old place in Pennsylvania where you have to do a 90 to get in. Not one pull up...I amazed myself, but last night at the truck stop, at least 4 pull ups doing a 45 into an easy spot....go figure?smileys
