Laundry day OTR...

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Washing clothes is not worth throwing in a mud puddle. I'll just febreeze them and the alligator at that point.

Some people pay a lot of money for that worn and torn look. It's a way of life punching alligators for that priceless smell of dirt.

Forget trucking, new business plan and product. "Naturally worn jeans." 100% worn only with the help of nature. So, I get an alligator and a mud hole, put some jeans on a raw chicken and throw it to the alligator. I fish the jeans out later, sew up the major damage, rinse them off and sell them. Boom. Later on I'll invest in a second alligator.

Those alligators can be really expensive to maintain. I think I'd rather be a company alligator handler than an owner operator. Know what I mean Vern?

Owner Operator:

An owner-operator is a driver who either owns or leases the truck they are driving. A self-employed driver.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

There are plenty of wild alligators in Florida. "Alligator super distressed jeans, because nothing can distress jeans better". "We wear them working hard, so you can wear them hardly working"

Would you be interested in leasing an alligator.... you'll make much better money and have less stress than trying to own your own, let alone a 2nd one and the pay is better than company op gators :P Our lease ops get the newest model of gators and we're in the works of adding crocodiles to our lease program!!! Just imagine the potential!

Laundry day OTR...

shocked.pngshocked.png

Maybe I'm weird, but I kind of like laundry day OTR because that means it's a day where I get more than a 10 hour break - a short load, or a load where I can get there in 1.5 or 2.5 days. Some of the best conversations I've had have been in the laundry room at a truck stop or terminal.

Now, Clean The Truck Day - that day always sucks.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.
