I learned to always goal unless its a straight back but into a dock i still goal to make sure im 100% lined up. One time i goal 7 times in a super tight back. But i didn't hit anything and i got it in

I kind of thought it was closed but when the new mexico official doc said open i rolled the dice. I was running 1289 miles in 2 days 63mph truck before christmas.

Pre trip: tire pressure

So Monday morning i pretripped the vehicle after my Christmas break was over. I found that my passenger side steer had 60psi. It looked like there was a nail in it with a shaved off head however after the shop removed all debree from the tire nothing had pierced the inside wall. The tire since has not lost even 1psi.

So at some point someone relieved the tire of 45 psi roughly as it was at 105 when i parked it before the break.

This being said if some of you thump the tires instead of using an air pressure guage i might recommend you check the psi daily. Had i missed this and ince fully loaded this could have blown on the first highspeed curve which for me would could have been right off a cliff climbing i17n to flagstaff

Some time ago I trip planned my end of day to mm302 i40w rest area. On new mexicos state website i downloaded a pdf doc stating rest area was open. Well when i rolled past it was closed. So my 11 hour drive time ran out about 13 miles before Santa Rosa.

I was never stopped and inspected but im wondering. Do you guys think DOT would hace ticketed me for this? My trip planning was fine the docukebt from new mexicos website was out of date. I was over roughly 13 minutes.

Anyone know what CR England hauls?

You may want to change your diet. Trucking is hard and requires long hours. You could probably do it as a vegetarian but not vegan you'll be too weak

Winter question my dad warned me about

I delivered at a place in Ogden, UT that had a sign up stating if your load is overweight they will not rework it until all snow has been removed. This is my first winter and I have yet to remove it.

Cricket wireless...any thoughts? 🤔

I drive all 48. The phones which have more service are at&t and Wal-Mart straight talk. You don't want to be out in i80 in Wyoming and have a phone with no service
