Strange Tales From The Road

I was browsing through reddit and one of the tags was truckers describe the eeriest things they have seen. I have yet to start my truckin journey but that got my interest. Any of y’all have any strange, odd, or downright eerie tales of things you have seen while on the road? I bet there is a ton!

A BMW used its blinker earlier on I 287 near Edison, NJ.

Diabetes Update!

That is amazing news, I need to start doing something physical myself to finish off my weight loss. Seems I have leveled out, but lost 30 to 35 lbs since I started school in February.

Great going Marc.

Favorite truck stop chain?

Kwik Trip without a doubt, best bagels around, they have a good selection of grocery items. Their facilities have all been well lit and have plenty of room at the ones I've been too.

I've emailed them to come to Chicago/ Indiana so far they haven't listened.

Plus they return lost wallets.

Ive made it back up to Wisconsin and am staying at the Plover Town Quik Trip on I39. Thought of you when i walked by these earlier.

Last time I stopped at Plover, there were 3 Millis trailers in parking spots. I love quick trips myself as well, buy a steak cook it in the truck.

Rand mcnally or garmin

Used an overdryve 7 on my trainers truck and got myself a garmin 780. They both have many of the same tools, but I really like how you can shape the route on a Garmin to take the roads you want without having to setup multiple destinations.

To Ease Your Mind About Winter Driving...

We have gotten at least one message from safety for each storm that has come through so far this season. All of the say "If you feel it's not safe, then park and update your DM. No load is worth life or anyone else's life." I think we have gotten 1 message each of the last three days, as this storm crosses.

Vent & Brag...

Got a nice run started friday, Cherokee AL, to Saratoga Springs, NY. Would have capped a nice 3k mile week. Taking my time getting up there, park at Myerstown or Frystown Flying J. Truck gets another SCR system fault. Last time I got this I lived in Joplin for four and a half days. Wish me luck.

Need advice

Regardless of reviews, as has been said many, many times you will get what you give. Perform well and do the job well, you will be treated well. Reviews about anything are most often written by people who had a bad experience, it's part of a negative mindset really. If you only look for the bad it's what you will find more, most people don't look for good things, or at least take note of them. Things going as planned, or as they should, isn't remarkable, simple as that.

PRIME INC TNT Student in need of new trainer...

Bullying you? Saying that it's not possible immediately is not bullying you. On the new trainer bit, if you really think about it, the time you are with them is a short amount of time if you plan to do this for years. Make yourself do it, there will be many many things out here on the road that will be uncomfortable. Power through it, get it done, get your truck and roll on.

REALLY Heading to Veriah (Spelled Veriha) Sunday for Training Monday. Training Plan Update...

Congratulations, sticking to it works. You will get it done. In time you will discover what these paths few months did for you in a positive fashion. Anything that comes easily isnt generally something that will mean as much as something you had to work, and worry for. Good luck.

A Thank You, And A Promise To Our Community

A thank you to everyone involved at this site. The study resources are second to none, and the advice given is also top notch. Sometimes it may have been a little harsh, but often times text seems harsh because you cant put a tone on text. I haven't posted much but I'm here nearly everyday checking the tracker and reading.

Thanks again everyone who participates in discussion here. Recently met a reader here who lurks, and had questions about Millis. Was at a fuel island and he came over for a chat. Talked so much in fact I left the nozzle in the right fuel tank, and started to pull away. Thank God my wife was on the truck and noticed or I would've really screwed up.

Most cheapest/smartest way to obtain CDL A?

As someone who chose company paid training, I did have to come up with some upfront for schooling as my company requires. The thought of setting forth on this new career and lifestyle, having a partner (my company) who was interested in my success as much as i was was very important to me. First check stub was from march 25, and the most recent was October 21. My gross to this point is $31,890. I am very happy with the choice I made and knowing my company is still interested in my success makes my job a little less stressful. Anyone who has been in that seat knows there are pressures from all around, stress to an extent at all times. I think having to worry extra about a mistake made would end in unemployment would add to that. Not to say I don't worry about screwing up because I do, but I don't fear that something minor would have me looking for another job.

CB tips

If at some point you do decide to talk much, invest in a better mic, a noise cancelling one to be specific. Mine has proven useful a few times so far.

The Highway Bottleneck Awards, 2019

Atlanta has three on there only because trucks have to take 285 if not delivering inside of it. At the root of it that really is what makes Atlanta traffic so bad.

Starting School Soon After A Long Wait

Good luck to you, I hope you find it as rewarding as I have. If you're as anxious as I was I couldn't imagine that lasting for years.
