Glad to hear you are doing well Mark

Thanks Grumpy!

Backing practice @ customer in Salinas, CA while waiting to be loaded. Had a veggie burito off the taco truck. Nice bathrooms, outdoor hand wash and sanitation stations. Another place has an indoor cafe. (No doubt carry out only). 59 degrees, windy but sun and blue skies. Nice (long overdue) nap. Life is good!

Spent almost an hour moving a trailer over about 2"! Straight line to a dock, 45, 90, blind side, parallel, S-curve backing moves... Pieces starting to come together! Drill Sergeant brutal but fair! Just what I needed!

Been following along, just watching. Great job. Your in my neck of the woods, lol. I bet you loved wy and Ut, lol. My co driver drive alot of it on the way out, and she told me I’m driving back, lol. I hope to be loaded later this morning and heading back that way to Iowa

Cool Beans! Did a few minutes of "live streaming" of UT on FB. Had to sleep (or try) through some od it as I had 500+ miles to drive coming up. Missed Wendover, NV

Great job Marc

Nice to hear the trainer is happy.

Keep it up!

Thanks Rob. Didn't get to back much but the yard will be there when we get back!

Cool stuff is he said "everyone (back in the office) will know what an awesome job we did. This run was actually a "reward" for going above and beyond and helping them with a "cluster" on the previous run.

Yes, trucking is not easy and companies do play "favorites".

Trainer got a call from a former student this morning. He is now with a different company. He asked a couple of HOS questions and thanked him for all his help. He added I had the best Trainer ever.

Inclined to agree!

Arrived at Receiver in Tracy, CA 2:48 "late" this morning. This was after a 10 hour delay at & caused by the shipper. For the last leg of this trip I drove 555 miles in 9 hrs and 52 minutes. 56.25 mph average includibg up and down mountains including Donner Pass and a 55 mph speed limit in CA! "Totally Awesome" and "You did good!" Trainer said.

The trip was almost 2,600 mi. in 2 days for the Team, I think!

And shipper will pay almost $1,500 for delay and "driver" (Trainer) gets about $150 of it!

What they did was seal the trailer with a "temporary" metal seal with the BOL's inside AND the note which said to break the seal to get to the bills and new seal. Expensive lesson!

Trip looked something like this...

What does a quarantine due to coronavirus mean for truckers?

(part 2)

This is madness.

I want the United States to concentrate on its people. Charity begins at home. I want not a single dime given in any kind of foreign aid until the following requisites are fulfilled: Not a single Homeless American Citizen. Not a single unemployed American Citizen. Not a single senior citizen living in fear of not having a meal or a home. Not a single legitimately disabled person living without hope. Not a single US military Veteran living in need. Not a single illegal alien allowed any funds until every single American Citizen has what they need. Not a single American citizen without proper, affordable medical care. Not a single underpaid teacher, police officer, fire-fighter, EMT, Paramedic or Nurse.

No more social or political indoctrinations of our students at any level of education. Education programs to be well-rounded and all-encompassing. Junior Highs and High Schools to reintroduce shop classes for wood, metal, and stonework. Classes for tradesmen-to-be. Electricians, Plumbers, Welders, Mechanics, etc, right alongside the computer programmers.

Arts and Sciences to be hailed as important as sports programs.

Honest, fair representation for every class of American, from their actual peers, in Washington D.C. No more cries of (insert your particular ‘ism’ here) whenever someone disagrees with something someone else says. This is the United States of America. Disagreement used to be de rigueur. It still should be. It was a necessary part of the process. It still must be. We are still allowed our Freedom of Speech. Political correctness and social justice be damned. They are constructs that have no real meaning. They are tools of a controlling party who use them to shut down true debate. They are a way to deflect without having to respond. If you disagree with something someone says, then, have the integrity and the intellect to debate the point calmly, honestly and factually.

There is far more to be said and done. But it must be said and done by all of us and not just one man, sitting at his laptop on a Saturday morning.

Say what YOU would like to see. Say what YOU want this nation to be when the current crisis is past and we can get back to a new normal. Maybe we can figure a way to make this whole thing work for us as a people.

The floor is now open for questions and debate.

A great read from a good friend...

AMEN RICK!

We were offered a load to the Bronx last week. Trainer Brian told them "I didn't leave anything in the Bronx!"

We would be on 14-day self quarantine if we took it!
