Donna M.'s Bio

Happily Married will be 27 years in August. Have six grown children and 8 grandchild. Have driven a school bus for the past 4 years and really sick of it. I love big powerful trucks. Can’t wait to get out on the road. Have lived a life of doing for everyone else and fulfilling others demands and now I just want to challenge myself. Want to be appreciated when I decide to come home and not just cause I’m always here. Sounds selfish, however it’s time to be.

Refusing delivery

Dan, sorry it didn't work out. I'm sure at this point you're just ready to get home. Perhaps u could share with us what u didn't like, so maybe other readers will more understand that trucking is a new lifestyle not just a job. Best of luck.

Doesn’t your company have vaccines for their drivers that one want? Prime has shots available on Tuesday and Thursday to any of their drivers. Guess by what you’re saying, prime drivers will be the only vaccinated drivers??? Um 😟

Thus goes the best laid plans of Mice and Men

Just walked into the door about 10 minutes ago. It was a long day. As I posted earlier I was shut down at a rest stop on I79 42 miles south of Erie Pennsylvania. My plan at that time was to shut down for 3 hours and satisfy my "Split Sleeper" requirements. Since I was delayed unloading at the Mill in Fairmount WV I was able to get 7 hours and 6 minutes in before I got the call to head to the Mill and unload. Well I completed the 3 hour break and I only gained 43 minutes back on my HOS Clock (When I stopped I had 2 hours and 47 minutes of HOS after the 3 hour shut down my HOS Clock showed 3 hours and 30 minutes not enough time to get to Syracuse so I had to do a full 10 hour reset. So I could not move until 11:30 A.M. I would not make it to the receivers by 2:00 P.M. So the delivery was rescheduled for Monday one of the local guys will take it over. Even though I miss that appointment I was able to get my Middletown load preloaded so I will be able to spend a little more time with my Sweetie on Sunday. Hopefully she will feel better right now she is battling a stomach bug.

Did u take the 7 hours and 6 minutes in the sleeper? Must be in the sleeper, not off duty, no pc, no yard movement.

Any Federal Law for Right on Red?

Actually I don’t think a school bus nor a truck with hazardous material can turn right on red.

Any advice on backing in to tight spots

I’m by far the worst and slowest backer out here, and I’ve been at it over two years. There are little tricks that make it easier. Pull up to your door look to your right what is directly in front of your door that’s your land mark. Now look how the others drivers are parked directly on the line so many inches away are there any tire markings u can guide by. Then do your setup I’m a light weight so I only pull up one and a half trucks then turn out, but if it’s tight do not get to close to stuff on your right, give yourself some room. I can’t do a set up and back directly in, I do what I call the wiggle, turn the wheel a little left a little right that trailer will wiggle right in there. And if you’re still all wacky then pull directly toward that land mark and straight back it in. I don’t get much back lash from other drivers, cause I’m a woman. But at small places I can guarantee u I’ll get the hardest dock, by the concrete wall, the steps and the lumper will stand and watch if I’m gonna get it in. I just wiggle my way in. And if you’ll think about wiggling while u are backing, will take a lot of stress out of the situation!!!
