PackRat's 2020 Daily Driving Diary

Love following your diary PackRat. I read the whole thing at one time. We missed you there for a while but glad your back. Figured you were just busy. I’m still in ready to get my CDL’s and get started mode. Something I’ve always wanted to do. After all, I have 4 uncles all truck drivers and my mother is retired from “Yes” the MCCD. I’m sure some of you guys my have met her before. She was out there 22 years. So, trucking is just in my system and one of those things I’ve got to do for myself. I’ve always loved to drive and travel. I travel a lot for work now. Just in a pickup truck though. Hell, I Drove 13 hours today from Columbus Ohio to Valdosta Georgia. Drove up there on Monday. So, one day here soon I hope, I’ll be out there with you guys. AND gals. Keep up diary packrat. I’m really learning a lot from it. Puts it all in perspective. Be safe out there man.

Hey Brett

Hey Neek. Was that on I65 southbound somewhere between Birmingham and Montgomery? Don't recall exactly where it was. I just seen one that was in pretty bad shape in left emergency lane. Thought that was pretty strange to see on side of road. If was you, Hope your all good. Lot of debris scattered after the sink.

Any way to post a video? Ran over a kitchen sink on the highway 😥

Break in employment - prepping for Paid CDL interview/acceptance.

I wanted to add to this forum. My girlfriend and I have been researching companies for the past 4 or 5 months and we narrowed it down to Wil-Trans/Jim Palmer. Looking to go through the CDL training and ultimately end up teaming. We really liked everything about the company and those sharp new shiny black trucks that come loade. Here lies the problem. My girlfriend hasn't worked for the past 12-13 months because she has been taking care of her elderly mother at home doctor trips, etc, etc. Her mothers doctor said he would give her a notarized letter stating all she has been doing this past year. Her sister is now living next door to their mother and is going to assume the responsibilities and my girlfriend is ready to hit the road. BUT with the "no employement" for past year Wil-Trans has denied her. We have been talking to this recruiter for over a month, sent all necessary documents, done the phone interviews and now it's a no go. Girlfriend was devastated because both are ready to hit the road. She called PRIME the next day and explained the situation and they said they could possibly work something out. So what gives? 1 says yes and 1 says no. I know each company has there own rules and policies but man. I just wanted to present this because Old Skool mentioned that PRIME was one of the toughest. Hopefully we can get in somewhere.

What did you do before becoming a truck driver?

Very interesting in all the various backgrounds. Love the stories. And thanks Brett for bumping this up. I would have never seen it. Not a trucker here yet but preparing for school at the young age of 50. I Graduated high school in 87. Got a 2 year Forestry degree from ABAC in Tifton, GA. Graduated in 90. Then a 2 year Architectural degree from Wiregrass Technical College in Valdosta, Ga. Graduated in 92. Somehow after that, I fell into the Land Surveying field and have been doing that every since with few small breaks here and there but always fell back into Surveying. I have done every thing from property research at courthouses to actual field work beating bushes, wading through swamps, dodging snakes and dealing with upset landowners to the drafting of the final survey plats. I now work for an Electrical Company doing the drafting and layout work for the underground power to various multi million dollar construction projects. I guess I'm to the point that I'm just ready to do something different in life and get out of South Georgia. I feel like I'm maxed out on my pay in this area and tired of doing the same ole thing day in and day out. I feel like the years I have of reading and drawing maps of all sorts that it will give me a slight advantage of navigating these great states of ours. I travel a good bit of the southeast now with my current company so driving and traveling is no biggy to me. I'm just ready to see something different besides the southeast. So with that said, and to conclude, I'm looking to start my CDL training and my new career after the first of the year and maybe see some of our guys out there on the road someday. Safe travels to all and take care.

Thanks Turtle,

I appreciate that. I'm still learning how to post on here. Maybe Brett will help me out and put the pic in my original post. Now, can anyone let me know if it's possible to edit my original post? I posted it late at night and now see some misspelled words or is it permanent?

O. The places trucking can take you.

This is my first post here on TT. First of all, I want to say thanks for all the great advice I have acquired on here. And thank you Brett for creating such a sight. I'm soon to be off on my new adventure in trucking at the young age of 50 once I choose "the perfect" company. Just kidding. Not sure where I'm going to end up at this point but I will make the best of my first year no matter where I start out.

Ok, back to the title of this post. My girlfriend and future team partner if all goes to plan spotted this on Facebook the other day and I want to share with you guys. Not sure if this driver is on this website and in not going to post his name for his privacy. I don't want to be "that guy" that gets someone in trouble or whatever. Just thought it was a very cool picture and another reason that I want to oursue this child hood dream of mine also. So, here it is. Hope you guys and gals enjoy.

How’d I end up in a cave? I’m approaching my 2 year mark with Prime Inc, and more to come. The knowledge and resources that Prime has given me to run a successful business I’ll always be grateful for. Prime truly is driven by the best.
