I Found Paradise!

Your powers of observation are truly stupendous, RJ.

I left that little Easter Egg wondering if anyone would notice what I'd written on my trailer😉

I added it with a photo editor of course. I don't think Barr-Nunn would appreciate Trucking Truth graffiti on their trailer.

Hello Everyone

It's great to hear you are doing well and enjoying yourself. It feels like less of a job when you actually enjoy what you're doing, huh?

Don't be a stranger. Pop in as often as you can and help spread the knowledge. Especially for people who post on here about the horror stories they've heard about Western Express. As a driver currently with WE you can help set them straight about what is like to work for them.

Moving within a company?

Errol sagely suggests:

Pepsi will require you to wear steel-toed shoes on the job, so get shopping!

I have nothing more to add. I just wanted to sound as cool as Errol by responding in his trademarked style😉

What's your favorite run/lane?

This one is rather specific bc it is a load that I only ran while training students in the TNT (team driving) phase while at Prime. It was a trip from Ben & Jerry's in St. Albans, Vermont to Henderson, Nevada. Simple drop n hook at both ends. Plus free pints from B&J at the start. It was a lot of miles and left a lot of freedom to choose whatever route you wanted to take from VT to NV.

I Found Paradise!

Eventually the herds realize it's a fresh watering hole offering some protection against the 14 hour Eld jackals and Parking enforcement predators of the north American trucking ecosystem and will eventually over crowd it to the point where the strong loners and weakest offspring will avoid it.

The newly minted offspring will often fall prey to the predators in short times unless they learn to adapt to the cruel harsh environment and go nocturnal as the loners do. It's a cycle as old as the birth of the 14 hour clock

Had to double check who posted this response. Wasn't sure if it was Davy A. or David Attenborough. Thought I was reading a transcript of Attenborough's latest nature documentary.

Although Davy A. could be short for David Attenborough🤔

I Found Paradise!

There is a newish Rutters truck stop near Bedford, PA. Not too far from the Walmart DC.

I got here at 18:45 tonight and the place is nearly empty! I thought I was dreaming. Look at all this space!!!

Looks like it has been here for about a year, but I haven't been in this area recently. So not sure exactly when it opened.

New Applicant FNG

Yeah, BK is right. THC shows up in follicle tests for a long time. I saw you asked in another thread about whether having prescription (medical marijuana) card would be taken into consideration. I'm not positive, but I'm 99.9% sure you can't have any illegal drugs (illegal according to the DOT) in your system. I would definitely recommend trying to manage the back pain in a different way for the next 6 months while the THC gets clears your system, if that's possible for you.

In the meantime feel free to ask questions, join in the conversations, or just read through the information here at TT.
