Millis Transfer training, Richfield Wisonsin

We went through again of course. We were going to stop at the terminal but didnt have time after running into that big mess so we went straight to our pickup with 5 minutes to spare. Heading up to Iowa now. Im at a pilot in Calhoun GA for the night.

35-year trucker Joe Bartlette got a seatbelt ticket โ€” until this video got it thrown out!

When I was at Millis, they were like green. Showed up better on the dash cam.

They are still dayglo green at Millis.

Per diem during new driver training?

Congratulations on graduating school. I think I've seen some of your posts elsewhere, likely on a drivers YouTube channel. Wish I could offer help you asked for. No need to worry about people tearing you down here though.

Good luck.

Will be back there tomorrow probably in the afternoon, for home time. One more delivery on this 5 stop load in south Georgia for me.

Been over monteagle 3 times in 2 weeks, 4 ways on and and on the way down let the Jake's work and stab brake when needed. Stay below the recommended speeds and it's another piece of road, and dont forget to watch your tandems in the curves. Just wait till you go down fancy gap dont worry yourself the last thing you need is extra stress.

Welcome back Packrat!

Millis Transfer training, Richfield Wisonsin

Day 1 and 2 of my training portion out on the road with a trainer.

Started Sunday at our Richfield terminal at 9am after a quick meet and greet we headed out with our first load. It was a John Deere load with three stops. 2 in eastern Ohio and 1 in Western Pennsylvania. We parked for the night about 10 minutes from our first stop. Damn i was exhausted. I loved all the driving but need to build my stamina up which im looking forward too.

Day 2 was all country backroads and winding hills. And constant reminders about my tandems crossing the white lines. My lane control is terrible need to work on that too. Also i need to build up my ass bone calus. I have a very bony rear end and lower body, i swear i have some undiscovered "fat valve" somewhere in my waist that stops it from collecting below it. Let me tell you it sucks for sitting all day. We dropped off at our three stops and picked up another load heading for edwardsville ill tomorrow. Parked at a loves in Burbank Ohio off I71 for the night.

I dont know how much ill post moving forward bit ill try to keep it up. I see a new member is heading for Millis in May and hopefully this can help. That layabout Pete cant seem to be bothered to update so i guess I will. Lol

;) I planned on covering my time out once I was back home, was glad to see you posted. My trainer goes home every other weekend. We did 3373 miles from Tuesday to today 2200 of those are miles I drove. On the way to Richfield from Calhoun Ga, and see where it goes from there. Stopped in Calvert City KY tonight.

If they are so easy to hack why don't they hack them to cheat the ELD's the same way they used to keep extra coloring books?

Tired of working with people who have awful attitudes

Smile and then smile some more. Abuse them with positivity, eventually some of them will wear down just by your presence. For every negative you hear give them a bright side to the circumstance. The ones who want someone to agree with them will eventually stop sharing their bs and complaints with you and find a new ear to bend. Some will start smiling too, some wont.
