Where should I live?

double-quotes-start.png

"Company approved parking" equates to a truck stop. I am dispatched out of MO..i live in NJ.... My closest terminal is 150 miles away.

I park at a TA 2 miles from home. Many drivers never go to a terminal.... I drive through them to get the trailers inspected

NJ is so high in taxes and cost of living that i think everyone should leave.

double-quotes-end.png

The only reason I mention it is because my terminal (Knight) was always... cagey about parking away from the terminal.

Convenience DOES help... with this upcoming winter. This was last year. Front yard.

Thanks, Rob.

My Carter Express Adventure

Anyone know what a board driver is (division wise). I'm assign as a board driver.

And Anne I definitely won't disappeared from TT🤣🤣🤣🤣. You have my word!!!!

Haya m'lady; that's great news; I'll hold ya TO it ~!

Re: Board drivers . . . I'm not familiar with Carter Express, was hoping RatPack would answer you. From what I've heard with 'some' companies, however, this 'could' mean that you will be on the 'extra' board for awhile, until you get perhaps your 'own' dedicated run / lane ?!?

Bobcat Bob can explain it better; perhaps even Banks and Rob T.

Kudos to you, keepin' on~!!

I’m at 14,100 miles now, and I’m home for a few days to get my Cdl permit converted to a regular Cdl. Should I get any extra endorsements.

Just an update. I went to cartersville, GA to take my Cdl test, and I passed. I’ve got 13,000 miles in with my trainer, so I should be finished with my 15k later this week and into my truck next week.

Girl, you are my IDOL .. you do what I cannot, due to familia ... sometimes I feel like we try to 'best' one another, and that's NOT my intention. I've been a trucker's wife 20 plus, and drove 6 months 'illegaly' probably .. on a permit, 6 years ago. I'm not you. I wish I were.

Just wanted to say.. Peace ?!?!?

Suspensions on driving record

Always gotta 'male sure?' confused.gifrofl-3.gifconfused.gif

Can she not 'female sure?'

Karla.... For future reference.. Applications are only good for 30 days. Having a prehire for that long sounds suspicious to begin with. Also....any invitation is just that. Your entire training is an interview...and you are not guaranteed a job.

Hang in there and keep trying. Remember you suspensions look as though you dont care so male sure your company and trainer know you do. Good luck

Application Process: Is it Possible to Apply Too Early?

Hey all, thanks for the quick responses! It does sound awfully silly to think I was rejected for being too persistent, doesn’t it? lol

It just worried me a bit because as far as I know, my application is sterling (no ego here!). I have only one speeding ticket on my driving record (two years ago), no other moving violations, and criminally just two misdemeanor underage drinking tickets (not vehicular) from 19 and 20 years ago, respectively. Employment wise I recently left a ten year career in the fitness industry, and I know my references are strong.

My home of record is in Virginia Beach, but I’m obsessed with the American west and the allure of hauling freight through deserts and mountain passes. I used to live in California, and love hiking and rock climbing. One of the many reasons I am attracted to Jim Palmer is their location is Missoula!

Hay, Eugene; welcome to TT ~!!!

Considering career

Hi. I'm considering a change in careers. A lot of things about the trucking industry appeal to me. As a diabetic how hard is it to get licensed? I am not insulin dependent.

Howdy, TC N ... and welcome to Trucking Truth~!!

We have quite a few articles on diabetic drivers on here; insulin dependent, and non. You could search in the big white bar above, 'diabetes' and come up with many results.

You could also search for posts by specific persons / usernames... I would type in Marc Lee for starters; he was a diabetic that got into the industry just fine!

You may only end up with a ONE YEAR medical card, but so what? Your CDL will look like everyone else's~!!

Have you seen our links?

Stick around; ask and we shall answer!! Read and peruse the above, at your leisure. ~ Anne ~

Nuclear verdicts get carriers rethinking safety training programs

Benjamin Crump - the Al Sharpton of attorneys. Whenever there is an incident with a member of the african american community - BEN CRUMP to the rescue. He rose to fame with the Trayvon Martin case.

From the Landline (OOIDA) Magazine Article

double-quotes-start.png

This is far from Crump’s first national headline-grabbing case this year alone. A prominent civil rights attorney, Crump is also the attorney for the families of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Jacob Blake, all of whom were killed by police earlier this year. His prior cases include those of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown and a pending settlement in Flint, Mich., for the city’s harmful levels of lead in its drinking water.

double-quotes-end.png

FYI - Jacob Blake didn't die. So with attorneys getting 33-40% of the settlement - old Ben the ambo/race chaser is doing quite well for himself. If you can't tell - I DESPISE THE GUY.

So - the trucker jackknifes causing a pile-up - speed may have been a factor (always blame the truck driver). The motorcycle rider SPEEDS INTO (could not stop in time - means SPEEDS INTO) a multi-car pile-up that he "didn't see" (because you can't see 45 cars PILED UP in front of you). There were likely 45 cars the biker was "trying to avoid" - sues THE TRUCK DRIVER?

This is another example of EXCESSIVE VERDICTS AGAINST TRUCKING COMPANIES - because they make easy targets (who DOESN'T HATE those huge killer trucks - unless you're in line waiting for TOILET PAPER to be delivered to your local WallyWorld?). As a solo practitioner with one truck (that does auto transport) - that has CORPORATE SHIELDING - there's very little chance of SEEING A PENNY from this judgement. Though the driver is likely FINISHED (or if he's the OWNER, forms a new corp, repairs the truck that he buys from the old one in bankruptcy, gets a new DOT # or subs to another company).

Do I feel BAD for the biker? Sure do - I RIDE. Not so bad that if it was RAINING - he was likely HALF BLIND and (again) likely he was RIDING TOO FAST FOR CONDITIONS.

While it's SAD that a career Army Veteran had this outcome - this verdict is WAY OVER THE TOP - and the only person that's going to see a thing from this is CRUMP and 15 more minutes of fame (did I say I DESPISE the guy yet?).

Leaving the oilfield for flatbedding

Day 4: TMC Orientation

Today we took HOS test, went over benefits, per diem, tuition reimbursement, and VA assistance benefits. Lunch at noon followed by 3 hours of load seceurment diagrams, explanations, and terminology.

I understand why TMC is so strict about the seceurment. DOT regs are a bare minimum and nobody, especially professional drivers should do the bare minimum. Tomorrow we start 3 days of hands on practice with a skilled instructor.

Hi Anne, the personality test was Professional DynaMetric Programs or PDP. It was certainly a great read. And so far as I can tell the results are mostly true to my personality and personal experience. But I will treat it like a horoscope, fun to read and very general. Thank you for your continued interest and support!

Goodnight everyone, and keep the dirty side down. Zach

Still following, Zach; it's been awhile. All still good ?!?! Hopefully just too busy to 'stop by~!' How'd that 'matching test' work out for ya? Hopefully better than Tinder and Grindr, hahahaha~!! The MPPI I spoke of, is 'Multi Phase Personality Index' ... I couldn't remember when I mentioned it.

Thinking 'boutcha; KEEP OFF THE GRASS ~!
