Visiting doesn't count. Driving a big rig does. Now while visiting you had the pleasure of driving an 18 wheeler around the island, more power to you. I wouldn't want to drive an 18 wheeler on Oahu. Driving a car is bad enough. Thought of being in an 18 wheeler on H-1 or H-2 makes me shudder. Let alone trying to take one down King Kam Hwy.

I lived in Hawaii for 3 years. Everyone drives like a maniac. 6 designated lanes and you get someone driving down the inside shoulder decide they have to take the exit they are about to pass. They don't even bother looking. Across 6 lanes of traffic and on to the off ramp without so much as a peep over their shoulder. Living their convinced me that vehicles ARE Asian/Polynesian Kryptonite!!

We stayed in Maui. 18 wheeler wouldnt fit on the roads around the island. Kinda impossible to get 50/50 then if I am required to drive a truck in it.

Oh well, 48/48 it still is for states driven.

You can visit Oahu and drive a truck there. I am sure all you will find is single screw day cabs. Probably only 48' trailers as well. The big island would be much nicer. Sure the roads are narrow, but not a lot of traffic.

Day Cab:

A tractor which does not have a sleeper berth attached to it. Normally used for local routes where drivers go home every night.

I'm missing ME, RI, NH, VT. As far as Baton rouge, watch out for the coonasses (NOT A RACIAL SLUR) they drive like idiots, and Louisiana roads ALL suck

You don't want RI on that list. One word of advice: WATCH FOR THE POTHOLES!

Baton Rouge traffic sucks. I lived there for 3 years, very recently. I-12 east bound will be a parking lot come 4:30/5:00 pm. I-10 is a parking lot west bound in the morning.

Good luck is all I can say. I don't wish this on my worst enemy.

Wasn't me. I was in GA ALL day, lol. Speaking of taking paint off. I had some idiot in a beat up old red Columbia come over and rub is trailer on my mirror just north of Atlanta. I was between him on the left and had a flatbed on the right. I had no where to go. He came into my lane and his trailer contacted my mirror. He was pulling a R E Garrison trailer.
