Take a kid to work day!

My dad used to take me to Con-Way when I was a kid. Helped me decide I'd rather drive them than fix them like he did lol

Finally going into the shop for a partial rebuild

Good luck tomorrow sir! I hope it all goes well.

In a few short months, you'll be back on I-70 in Indiana having a blast!

Hey, Davy A

There's also a few w990s themed from movies.

That's pretty neat, I think the one I saw was from "Moving On" some TV I've never heard of in mid 70s.

May Trucking Orientation

I've never heard of a company scheduling 6 months out. They will have to rerun all of your information 30 days or less prior to you starting to make sure there are no changes to MVR or back ground. Plus your CDL starts to get "stale"

Seems like a waste of time on their part as a lot can and will change.

International truck problems

Unfortunately, I can't help with your sleeper problems since I have a day cab.

But I will say since I was assigned to a International last year, I am not a fan. Everything feels super cheap in it, I'm sore after I get out at the end of the day.

I hope I get assigned to a Freightliner or KW next time we get new tractor assignments.

Driving a CAR is weird!!!

I've moved into the right lane for the weigh station before. Back when I drove a manual truck I tried pressing the clutch in my SUV. Even taken a few turns wide like I'm dragging a set behind me.

Good luck on the surgery. My dad's friend had it done, he said the first few weeks are rough, but after that it was great. Wished he had done it years sooner.

Got a backing compliment

Wasn't in my truck but backing my boat trailer into the water yesterday. Someone parked in the no parking zone in front if the ramp, so I had to jack knife it in, was able to do it with no pull ups. When I got out Someone waiting her turn for the ramp said that was impressive.

Made me feel good lol

Thanks to my day job I'm usually the best at backing upto the ramp and getting it in the water quickly. Some people take forever which is aggravating to me since I know what they are doing wrong but just keep it to myself.

Week from Hell ended horribly!

Sorry to hear that was a dead end.

Have you looked into LTL companies? You can start on their dock and then work your way into a driver position. It may take some time but at least you can earn some pay.
