There used to be a website dedicated to geocaching truckers and RV’ers. It had tons of caches that were truck and RV friendly. I’ve got a geocoin from that website, I’ll have to dig it out and find out what it was. It’s been shut down for years which is a shame. When I was OTR , I’d stop at the truck stops for fuel and food if I needed it and then head to the nearest rest area if I could in my direction of travel. I’d park for the night and more often than not, there would be a cache there. I added many states to finds list that way.

I'm gonna beat this DOT preventable fail of 'range of motion' issue, soon... keep it in mind~!

Re; the cache site, guessing that a good amount of us here and elsewhere would love to know! Please post, if you so find. Thank you!

Heck .. maybe we can bump the numbers of the fun; I wish I could remember two or three years back, when it was 'hotter' than now. I actually had Tom, hunting a cemetery bypass in Perrysburg on his 30, after a (non) coveted Campbell's run. He got 'shy' or .. just got lost ?!? (Disinterested..?)

I just love the concept, the whole of it all. (I wonder if Brett does any Geocaching whilst hiking, in the Adirondacks or elsewhere?!?)

Rob D., weren't you there before, also? Perrysburg? PackRat; you know where I speak of~!

On a final, Ms. Laura .. IDMtnGal ... you've GOTTA have some incredibles in Goat Country, yes ?!?!? No 'limbo' required, either!rofl-3.gif

Best y'all ... wish there were more folks into this, O.o ~ showing my age!

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.

DOT:

Department Of Transportation

A department of the federal executive branch responsible for the national highways and for railroad and airline safety. It also manages Amtrak, the national railroad system, and the Coast Guard.

State and Federal DOT Officers are responsible for commercial vehicle enforcement. "The truck police" you could call them.

Dm:

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

DAC:

Drive-A-Check Report

A truck drivers DAC report will contain detailed information about their job history of the last 10 years as a CDL driver (as required by the DOT).

It may also contain your criminal history, drug test results, DOT infractions and accident history. The program is strictly voluntary from a company standpoint, but most of the medium-to-large carriers will participate.

Most trucking companies use DAC reports as part of their hiring and background check process. It is extremely important that drivers verify that the information contained in it is correct, and have it fixed if it's not.

OWI:

Operating While Intoxicated

Turtle and I have a give and take relationship. He gives me information on the Walmarts where he delivers. I take it and repay him by peeing all over his territory.

Lol, you guys...

I was into Geocaching a few years ago, not so much for quite a while now. But it is fun and challenging. I can't even delete the app off the phone, bcuz, there's always the possibility I might look one up and go find it. Now with trucking, there ought to be times when I might be able to find one if it's nearby where I'm parked.
