I see nothing wrong with taking the easy spot. The more spots you put it in, the more your confidence and comfort level grow with the handling and reaction of the trailer. I'm no expert, but I always look for the easiest spot.

PC to go park

The way I understand it is you dont use PC to reach a safe haven, you violate then add a note saying you were headed to nearest safe haven. Because whether you are advancing the load or not you still cant be off duty and moving the load. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

Do trucks have wifi?

Can use your phone as a mobile hotspot and connect your computer that way.

Nope still haven't been to anywhere in Rochester. Only loads I have picked up for there ended up being relays to get me home or to get someone up there home. On a side note, picked up at Miller Valley today. Went down to Oak Creek to scale and tandems were at 37700, but the rework was only 2 hours.

Do you carry a jug of engine oil?

double-quotes-start.png

At the Millis shops, bottles are there, just ask one of the shop guys and give them your truck number. I keep 1 oil, 2 coolant and 2 washer fluid. Same with fuel treatment, I try to keep 2 of those as well.

Also have wiper blades as well and straps and load lock bars available. Which reminds me i need a new one.

On a side note.... Is it odd I get excited when i find an empty trailer with a load bar or set of straps that got left inside? It makes my day.

I have two sets of thier wiper blades as spares from by b services. I buy Michelin blades from Menards for the truck when I get a store load. Get them there for 12 or 23 bucks, they are near 20 bucks anywhere else.

Good job man! The luck you have with folks cracks me up, if it weren't for bad luck you wouldn't have any at all.

This Shipper Is Something else

You at a place with the initials CB? Had some BS with them myself, did everything asked of me with a smile on my face but wasn't happy about it.

Has anyone used these?

Could've used these today. 43k in the trailer, backing on an uphill ice rink, between a trailer and a concrete half wall. Was awesome of the forklift operator to come out and throw sand under me every time I started to spin a little.

PackRat's 2020 Daily Driving Diary

Speaking of places like the lumberyard. In November I had a broker load out of a metal scrap yard in Decatur, AL. Talk about a thorough check of the tires at the first opportunity. Was carrying scrap aluminum that had been pressed into bales, roughly 4x4x8.

Reading along, thanks for sharing. That last trailer I couldn't have done much about but i keep nuts bolts and a couple spare mudflaps in my truck just in case i grab one that has been ripped off. As long as that piece of steel is there to pinch the flap i'm good to go. As I said though with the way that bracket is bent nothing you could really do there.

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?

double-quotes-start.png

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.
