Why do student truckers take Greyhound to school?

double-quotes-start.png

Tbh i would avoid a greyhoud ride like my life depended on it. Im way too tall with legs too long to fold onto one of those seats. I took a train ride once across the country and was ready to end it all 3 hours in. I dont fly for the same reason id rather drive. Now if there was no choice then of course suck it up butter cup eat some bananas to avoid leg cramps and off we go. If this makes me elitist oh well, pass the grey poupon.

Noob, you are not elitist because you avoid the bus for logical reasons. But the OP is avoiding the bus for elitist reasons not in line with logic. What happens when he judges the shipping and receiving personnel as being beneath his dignity?

Sounds good. Still want my grey poupon though.

I’ll bet your dash cam went off. When I was there, it would activate for much less.

Im hoping it did. It went off a bunch driving on I20 through Shreveport with those ridiculous roads!

First bump in the road

double-quotes-start.png

It was definatley the guy not paying attention. He was obviously on my left and was parked at the line. He assumed i was still back at the pump and turned without checking his mirror. There was probably 15 feet in front of his truck that he didn't use. He tried to blame me and say i drove into him turning. Even though i was sitting there with my parking break set. Behind the line. My worry is how this will reflect on me as a student out with my trainer. I know thats selfish but hey what are you gonna do.

Did you get a police report? If I were you I'd ask the manager if there's a way to get security footage to show you were parked at the time. Another driver had a similar situation & the other driver said the same thing. What saved that driver was his dashcam footage. Cop threw the book at the other driver for lying.

Cops said its private property so they cant do anything. He took a report but its meaningless i guess. Loves told us they cant release their security footage without a court order. We do have dash cams bit i dont know of it went off. It wasnt a hard collision just dragged his trailer across our front. So i dont know of it went off.

First bump in the road

4 weeks into my road training and this happens. I pull up from the fuel island to the line to go inside and use the little boys room and the guy next to me doesnt check his mirrors and cuts the wheel to soon and took out my front end. I know i didnt do anything wrong but its still terrifying and as a student Im prettty worried. Wish me luck.

Picture didnt show up.

Wind & Carelessness

Like the name states I am a noob so I dont know much of anything. My trainers truck is a 2018 T680 and heading south down I39 through Wisonsin and Illinois i was being blown all over with 40k in the trailer. Now that was my first experience with winds and my trainer said its normal but at the end of the day my arms felt like i was werestling pythons all day. Coming out of every overpass was like a punch to the side. Ive never driven anything but this Kenworth so i cant tell ya anything else.

You might be a trucker if......

When you drive your POV and it has 0 degrees of steering wheel play, but you're all over the road, because through muscle memory, your moving the wheel right and left anticipating wheel movement from road conditions.

This x100. We managed to get to our terminal i park at after my first 3 weeks training for one night. We headed out for a good meal and i was terrified. I drive a kia soul! It felt like a pink barbie motorized car. I swear i almost turned into the curb on my first right turn.

Half of our Millis trailers are the same for the landing gear. It will have the instruction sticker right above it with opposite directions!

Refridgerators, APU's, and Sat TV as company perks pre-installed in their tractors

I scanned all the comments and, unless I missed it, TMC, the flatbedders out of Iowa, have their trucks set up with a lot of goodies.

I drive for Schneider, and I had to fight just to get a truck with electric start and not a crank.

Im sure Solo can fill us in on TMCs goodies.

Crank Start!!

CB

I bought one today, haven’t heard a word on it. Lol

That can be a blessing. Means no backups. If you really want to hear something go to a truckstop and listen to them make fun of drivers backing or complaining about their companies or just racist comments. Youll get all 3.

Truck driver tries a shortcut, gets snagged on building in viral video

Swifts the biggest company so it stands to reason they'll have the most incidents. Its not fair the bad rep they get in my eyes and drivers definitely hate on them from my short time out here and what Ive heard. I get why Gtown might be defensive im sure he hears out there more than we do.
