Had to drive all the way out to San Francisco to get a trailer wash out on a Sunday. Wow what an experience especially for a trainee. One side road had a very old overpass on it, It was a dip in the road under it. I pulled over turned my flashers on I wasn’t about to try it. In a few here goes another semi went right under. I was like okay here we go. What a Sunday. Winds are pretty rough in California this trip as well.

Lol That does not sound like fun. Fortunately I haven’t come across anything like that yet.

Be safe!

I almost started to do that in NJ, as I missed my turn and this posted sign said the Bridge was 13'2, I started to slow down but I seen a few other trucks to under it. So I decided to give it a go, I still had my head low looking up to make sure I would clear it rofl-1.gif

Frisco is famous for low bridges and narrow roads. No fun except on a motorcycle shocked.png

Yes u can tell it’s a old town. All the side street are very narrow. Sort of like Miami but not as bad as Newark New Jersey. I have really driven through some crazy 😝 places during my training.

This day just keeps getting better. Might be cause I’ve been up since 22:00 last night and really need to stay up till 6:00 in the morning so I can drive tomorrow night. But enough moaning. We are at the pilot in Salinas, now this place is nasty the bathrooms are disgusting. Have already seen two trucks get hit. And then two drivers in a fight. People just need to chill. I would definitely put this as no visit again truckstop.
