Snow Troubles ❄️

My trainer has been driving for 38 years and has never had this happen.

Oh man, I've seen this so many times. When you pick up trailers in parts of the Northeast where there is Lake effect snow you will see a bunch of this. I know in Connecticut they will write you a ticket for ice and snow falling off your trailer onto the road and/or other motorist's vehicles.

Yeah, I suspect senility is creeping up on him. 😁 In all seriousness it seems this should be a pretty common issue.

Truck Mattress

Rainy, any way you can give more info on the mattress place you found In Springfield? With any luck I’ll be upgrading in a couple of weeks and may just buy myself an upgrade present! What were the price ranges?

Snow Troubles ❄️

I found it odd that this isn’t a more normal occurrence. My trainer has been driving for 38 years and has never had this happen. Both road assist and dispatch had no clue what to do either as they had never seen it.

We ended up driving out of the way to a truck wash that would help. They power sprayed the snow off. Cost 50.00 and a lot of extra time and fuel, but we made our appointment.

Lol...good suggestions!

The truck washes just said it’s a safety issue. Crazy, I know. I found out by trying to get on the turnpike and being turned around as I was too tall. The trailer is above 14’ right now. We bought a rope and pulled from either slide and succeeded in cutting through it. No good. So we are going a different route all the way to Joliet.

So I picked up a load in Hazelton and drove all the way to Youngstown, tried to get on the turnpike and found I was over height! The snow was wet and solidified, now I have a block of ice on my trailer! No washout will get it off due to safety issues. Resolution pending. 😄

Life On The Road

Recently Old School started a conversation regarding how easy it is to enjoy yourself over the road, and I thought it may be a good idea for those wannabe photographers among us to take some time posting pictures of just that. How do you enjoy yourself on the road? What sights do you see, what fun is there to be had, what food do you eat, and so on. I am in Cheyenne right now, finishing up a Spingfield to LA to Cheyenne trip and here are some of the sights I stopped to enjoy on my journey.

Enjoying Yourself as an Over The Road Driver

This is great, OS! As I’m on a trainer’s truck all I can do in regards to parking is plan for my future solo career, and I have put a lot of thought into how I’m not looking forward to truck stops every night. This gives a great alternative, so I appreciate it. I do enjoy my time out here and take walks as often as possible. We had five hours the other day in a suburb of LA so I took off walking and thoroughly enjoyed myself. My trainer, a 38 year burned out vet, couldn’t for the life of him figure out why I’d do such a thing! 😁 I also love pulling over from time to time and capturing the scenery. Even the most “boring” of places has beauty in it if you look at it the right way.

I am new of course but see no trouble enjoying life out here.

I meant to add that the word is driving solo with Prime is going to get you up to the northeast a lot, that the west coast is reserved for teams. Perhaps somebody like Rainy could confirm or deny.
