The TruckingTruth Meet Up Thread

Spending the night on the access road on the Philly docks.

Be careful down there. Two winters ago, I had to call the cops after I walked by a car that had a dead guy (gunshot) behind the wheel. This was on my way back to my truck after checking in at the guard shack. Not really the city of brotherly love, in my opinion.

Done derailing meetup thread after this. I took care of business at customer at 1710, pulled of gate, pulled curtains, ate, and slept til 3. Did pre trip and rolled at 0330. Wasn't thrilled about being there but didnt feel like at 5pm on a Friday I could make it to a truck stop heading up 476 in 65 minutes.

Switched To A Local Account

So to not try and butt heads with anyone, we have seen cases recently, where some Schnieder drivers were making significantly more or less per mile. With the same experience, perhaps Jamie was one of those guys who signed on at a lower rate, and is making now what he claims. Seems to me since I have been around he's been on the road ALOT, turning miles. I just don't think we have all of the information here to claim he isnt being truthful, or hard working.

Just my .02, have a great and safe day everyone.

Honestly if they can hit the toilet and not leave a mess I could care less which bathroom is used.

Same. Also, don’t try to hold a conversation with me in the bathroom. That is just weird.

I have heard some weird things coming from stalls. Lol

LOL I do tell people to have a good day, even in bathrooms. It's kinda weird but oh well, if someone gets offended by a well-wishing, they can go ahead have the day they deserve.

On topic answer, I can understand a womans concern for safety. As men we aren't afraid of trans anyone. We are big strong men after all. I don't care what anyone does or thinks as long as those actions or ideas aren't causing harm to anyone. I'm always looking for the bright side of any situation, trying to make the day better for anyone I cross paths with.

Get out of the truck and explore

Managed to stop at the New River Gorge bridge overlook early one morning. They have a few oversize spots but I wouldn't recommend it in the middle of the day when it's likely busy.

Nervous!

Just listen and learn, be coachable. DO NOT EXPECT TO DO SOMETHING PERFECTLY. Sometimes good enough is good enough, don't add pressure to yourself. There is enough pressure in that seat without you adding more to it.

Good luck, keep your eye on the goal you have set, you will have to go through BS to get there and some of the BS you will endure might just be in school.

Turn on your CB!

Morning of the 4th driving from Knoxville to Atlanta, I hear on the CB. "Hey guy who just passed the prime truck at exit 62, your outside rearmost right side tire is gone." Never heard an answer, I was a couple miles ahead. I was going past exit 40 something and a truck from a company based in Chattanooga passes me. Rearmost right rear tire mostly gone, can see each side of the rim, guessing he was empty and in a hurry. Possibly trying to get home for the holiday. Rim wasn't sparking, regardless I backed way off, trying to hail him on the CB with no success.

The Guilt, Shame & Embarrassment of Being a Prime Company Driver [Sarcasm]

Please keep us posted on how much of a difference the WeBoost makes. I've looked at them and wonder if it is drastic enough to pay that much.

Thanks for the sob story, now get back to work.😁😁😁

Smallest/lightest load you have hauled?

When I was with my trainer we were given load info to stop at a Kenworth shop. Picked up a gallonish size bag with fittings in it, and a piece of cardboard with what looked like a head gasget on it. Drove it 40 miles to Black River Falls.

Regen

I'm certain in 6 months of driving your truck did regen Mr Bruce. Regen is what burns the DEF you would pump. Like Bob said super heats the soot, and why you rarely see thick black smoke from tail pipes like you used to see from stacks. The DEF system stores the soot then burns it.

Breakdown

Can't complain at about the wrecker service or the KW shop. Everyone was pleasant and helpful. Back on the road, get load info in the am. Have a wonderful evening everyone.

Breakdown

No bulges, cuts or abrasions - not rubbing against anything - secured at both ends, no leaks.

LOL...

Rick

LOL it's a part that frequently breaks apparently. Plastic fitting the hose connects on breaks, have to easy out the fitting put new one on, connect hose and refill coolant.

Army, tractor and trailer were taken to KW shop in Buffalo. Millis sent driver to drop empty for me, and take load to Avon. Just like Scott described.

The guys who came and got me were great, it's the place across the street from TA Harborcreek if anyone is familiar with it.
