Just came over Monteagle, TN and snapped this pic before bedtime at the fireworks shop before heading through Chattanooga the next morning. And no I didn't beat rush hour lol. picture of a fireworks store at night in Tennessee

My last fill up before heading home last week. I had just sat North of St. Louis for several hours on HWY 61 due to glare ice/ freezing drizzle. I decided to take a 10 hour break rather than drive all the way back to central Iowa and got this picture the next morning. The whole lot as well as my entire tractor was sheet of ice. black Freightliner filling up at fuel island after ice storm

And my super trucker selfie! young truck drivers selfie in the cab of his truck

And here is the YouTube link for the video!

Merry Christmas everyone!


"Bobtailing" means you are driving a tractor without a trailer attached.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I have decided to move on from the O/O I was driving for but I with the OTR experience I have now the job market is a little more promising. I will be sure to keep everyone updated! Happy Holidays!


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.
