Hey everyone. The name's Andrew, was born in New Jersey, raised in New York. I currently live in NY now. Been driving solo for about two months now. Lovin it so far. Right now I'm in Brunswick, GA at a Love's off exit 29 on i-95 on my 10hr waiting to hear from dispatch about getting the load I'm on swapped. I'll see what happens from here on. Will do my best to keep you updated. If not, I'll be around the forums. Been running like hell lately.

Thanks guys. I've been reading your stuff for quite awhile now. Absolutely helpful since I've been OTR. I'm also one of those drivers who eats very healthy. I mainly eat fruits, veggies, whole wheat bread (most of the time), cashews, and a few others. I have an iceless cooler and keep plenty of food in it. At some point, I want to get either a microwave or a slow cooker. Also, when do you guys consider threads dead? Just don't want to bring up an old post. Been on other forums that have these.

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.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Also, when do you guys consider threads dead?

We don't prevent people from reviving old threads because someone may have helpful information specific to that conversation. But we'd rather you started a new thread unless there is something very specific about an old one that you'd like to add to it or talk about. We don't mind a new thread started on topics we've discussed in the past so don't worry a bit about that. I've seen forums where they get angry if you don't search for something first or if you start a new thread on a topic that's already been discussed but we don't see it that way. Everyone has new information or details specific to their situation so feel free to start new threads anytime you like.

Hey guys. Sorry I haven't been on the forums lately. Been running like hell lately. Right now I'm waiting to get loaded in Princeton, KY. Won't happen until tomorrow, mainly due to being late. Had some difficulties finding a good route to get here from Greencastle, IN. Still trying to figure out how things work. Been getting a lot better in a good amount of time. Just one of those days.
