Starting at Gardner Trucking

Well, so much for 1st day solo going smoothly haha as if ! Got assigned a temp sleeper mini has NOTHING but a bunk and 1 cubby hole above foot Condo was "borrowed" before I got a truck. Ok fine, I'll roll a couple days until the condo returns (guys regular truck had radiator issues to fix)

Next comes trying for hours to find an empty for my 1st load. NOT ! 12;30 pm a guy comes in with an empty, asks if i was looking for 1 so I took it. In the meantime, I tried repeatedly to get fuel card to work, which it didn't after 3 times at pump (in the yard) and dozens of tries I gave up a 1/2 tank is enough for my load out to Tolleson, Az cardboard box delivery.

Get the load dropped without a hitch, fuel is into red zone halfway. Get a hold of my DM, he is trying to find me an empty to get a load outta Phoenix area Reciever had none. So I park at Love's, & grab a bite to eat etc. Still waiting for an empty. Get sent 2 miles to our other terminal, NO empties to be found.

Park outside waiting , finally take a nap for 2 hours, go check again NO empties lol My clocks winding down now at 3+ hours available, I get ahold of DM, he still can't locate me an empty. I ain't mad or upset, it is, what it is, which I tell him, it's all good, stuff happens, and this IS Phoenix ! He appreciates my calm, cool, collected self, I tell him its all good, am outta drive time, so will go back to Love's for the night, hopefully he gets me something tomorrow.....See I learned HERE how to keep my cool and not let the little things bug me.....(which I don't usually anyways haha)

I know it's just the beginning, and things can work out over time. As I told him, I know this virus crap is not helping either with loads etc, at least I have a job. Luckily, I am not in debt, I owe no one a thing, just my living expenses.

Tomorrows a new day, but am used to being stranded in Phoenix area since my training days, stuff comes in, not much goes out,,,, Denver is the same, at least in my short time out here (8 months soon)

Great attitude Stevo.

One day in the bag. Tomorrow is another day!

What does a quarantine due to coronavirus mean for truckers?

Went to Menards today with a client. Had to buy single-use masks for $1 each.

What's wrong with this picture!?!

(I folded it in half to save for possible re-use).

Look closely at the label!

BESIDES I FORGOT TO UPLOAD IT!

Minnesota's I-90 roads sucked yesterday

Got 60 miles north and it was clear sailing again until the side streets. Roads were completely dry for my return trip. It helped making it a 16 hour day today

double-quotes-end.png

When you say "a 16 hour day" what does it mean? You still couldn't drive past the 14 hr limit. Right? I am asking just so I understand how it is done.

Guessing it's the "Big Day" exemption for drivers of day cabs within 100 air miles (or something like that).

Fmcsa big day rule The 16-hour rule is a special exemption that allows certain drivers to remain on-duty for 16 hours instead of 14, but without extending the allowed 11 hours per day of driving. This exemption applies to drivers that have started and stopped their workdays at the same location for the previous five work days.

Interesting "quirk" in the rule was elogs let both my trainer and me each declare our own big day in the same week - even though we were both on-duty (though not logged in) when the other was driving!

Sorry to hear that Marc. Take some time to figure out what's next and please keep us updated whether its trucking or not. Don't rush into any major decisions.

Although you may or may not win the bet you and Rob D made, if I ever cross paths with you I'm buying you dinner. Your willingness to keep fighting and not give up says a lot who you are as a person.

Marc,

Sorry to hear about your latest misfortune, which based on your post indicates you were sent home/let go from Dutch Maid.

Don't worry about the dinner bet. If I make it to your neck of the woods, I will make sure to look you up. We'll just dine and dash.

If its any consolation, I haven't driven at all since I've been here at Prime, other than like 50 feet for a service brake test the first day on the pad.

I am keeping a detailed diary, but I'm sure you are not in the mood right now to read about my adventure.

Rob.

Au contraire! I'd love to read about it. You will no doubt be driving soon.

Rob D.,

How are things going for you?

Looks like dinner is on me. Sorry to all whom I let down. I was doing really well for a while, until I wasn't. And I did finally learn how to back too.

Sorry, not willing / able to share more at this time.

We are going to miss each other by a few miles ;-) I'm in Plover WI and will head around Minneapolis in a while...think I'll have to fuel in Robert WI first. Heading back to Idaho. Hopefully 94 will be clear most of the way.

Have to be thankful tho....this is my first "winter" late appointment. I got to the rest area just before Rochester and decided to call it quits.

double-quotes-end.png

I was in Rochester Saturday morning, then the Minneapolis area Sunday and Monday. Hopefully it's the last winter storm in this part of the country. Unfortunately with driving overnights its unlikely to run into anybody from the forum unless they stop the night in Des Moines and I can swing over to say hi. I'm usually clocking out for the day around the time many drivers are taking their 30.

Rob T. - you coming past Milwaukee? Seems I will be here for a while and have some time on my hands...
