Great to see you're still around helping people out G-Town! I see Old School is still helping new drivers out too. That's awesome to see.

I've been well. Hope the same w/ you! Are you still driving distribution for Wal-Mart? And were you always based out of DE? We hit the DE beaches almost every year for vacation.

Wish there was a way to pm members on the forum. I'm hoping Daniel checks the site so he can see I didn't forget about him.

Yep I'm out of CWS, I used to do that LON meet with the COH driver then I lost that run. They ended shorting that run so we could pass through CHI I did that run most of last year. Now I have a 09:00 meet with an MRT driver in Indiana.

That roof collapsed in Chicago the dock was built in the late 20s and couldn't take it any more. They split the Chicago drivers among the 4 other area terminals for 2 months.

0900 meet is pretty sweet! congrats on a great start time. i heard that CWS has a decent amount of daylight runs that drivers can get w/o too much seniority. at HAR we have a good bit of opportunities for linehaul to run daylight as well, but usually your first daylight run will be running wild or having a schedule w/ odd days off. there's a good chance i know who you were meeting out of COH. i won't put their names out here for privacy sake, but i know a lot of COH drivers. most of my runs so far have been meeting COH, MRT, or SBN drivers.

I'm coming up on 8 years myself this month. Time sure flies.

double-quotes-end.png

8 years? You should have one of them gravy runs by now.

Yep, I've got banker's hours for this summer's run lol. I remember just starting and not being able to even bid on a run - had to bag out in the northeast and pay my dues like everybody else. I don't even think they make you bag anymore as a new driver.

You run out of CWS? I remember one of the Chicago terminals having their roof cave in from snow not long ago, can't remember if that was two winters ago. I used to get CWS freight from a COH driver that met a CWS driver in London, OH.

Glad to see you're still with OD man! Been quite a few years since I peeked in the forum here and was curious if I'd still see some familiar faces. I see you've been doing well for yourself there at SAC. I think of you from time to time when I talk to our team drivers that have SAC runs from HAR. I'm coming up on 8 years myself this month. Time sure flies.

Where the "blank" have you been????

Lol. Out and about, same old same old, running linehaul for OD and raising a family. They keep the lights on for us... Nice to see some old faces around here. Hope you've been well. I remember you :)

LTL Trucking - My linehaul job

Hey 6 string!

I received a conditional offer of employment for line haul with OD yesterday and can't tell you how much I appreciate the time and effort you put into your LTL thread.

6 string do you have tips as to how I can get my sleep schedule swapped from days to nights? I'm no stranger to a grave yard shift, did it for 5 years at a previous office job, but currently work a 6 am - 4 pm pd gig with a different employer. Im still at least 3 if not 4 weeks out from starting LH training, and would love to make the adjustment as easy as possible.

Thanks again sir! Bret

Hi Bret. Glad the thread helped.

There's really no easy way about getting acclimated to nights. If you've worked nights before, you probably already have an idea of how to sleep during the day, and what not to do during your night shift. We're diurnal beings - some just tolerate night shift better than others. For me it wasn't as much the work week that gave me trouble, but rather flipping my schedule on the weekends for the family - that's rough. I try to stay daylight now. I run out of a terminal that has daylight runs and I have enough seniority to stay days.

Chemical Tanker lifestyle vs reefer lifestyle

Thanks for the input, however I'm not looking for easier and I'm not looking to not live out of a truck. In fact, I specifically DO want to live in the truck.

I'm just looking for insight into the tank driver lifestyle, particularly from those who've done both OTR tanker and OTR reefer.

double-quotes-start.png

If want it easier with better pay and to not live out of a truck, why don't you do LTL? You're in a major east coast city - there are plenty of opportunities. Try looking into P&D with an LTL outfit. There are a ton of options for you if you want better pay with less hassle.

double-quotes-end.png

I assumed you didn't want the typical OTR or regional lifestyle based on your comments, since a lot of your listed things you dislike can be typical of said lifestyle. It seemed to me you wanted it easier and more streamlined. I suggested P&D because it's daylight, you're in and out of customers, and you're not really doing any kind of labor. Of course, if you wanna live out of a truck, then home daily wouldn't be for you.

Also, being in the northeast, a decent amount of chemical tankers run around Jersey City, and that's about as urban jungle as it gets.
