I would be whining if i had to drive in Cali! Hate driving there.


The crazy schedule is correct. He may have wanted to see if you would speak up too. Trainers can't help students who dont talk to us.

We came to Big T's city and are waiting our turn at the Costco. Appointment time is 1100 hours. So does everyone's Qualcomm tell them "in 2 miles stay left, after 1000 ft stay left." I wish I could change the voice on there. We were on the same freeway, I-15 south since we left Jurupa Valley. Until it turned into I-5 south. Every 2 miles she would say, "in 2 miles stay left". I don't know if it's the voice or the constant reminder of staying on the same freeway.

I have never been this far south in California before. Never went past the San Diego Zoo. And that was some 20 yrs. Ago. Anyway, that's my whining for today, (I think). Still raining off and on, and cagers think it's the Indy 500. Only saw one 2-wheeler and was bundled up like a Christmas Turkey. But if that's your only mode of Transportation I guess you do what you have to do. About a year before my M/C accident I rode from Sacramento to Visalia in the rain with a buddy for the club. The only break we had from the rain was when we stopped for fuel. As soon as we got going again it started poring down rain. Needless to say it was a welcome change to get into a hot shower. We both rode solo that trip. His wife and my GF said have a good time in the rain.

Oh well Raptor is rambling again.

Will continue later.


Omnitracs (a.k.a. Qualcomm) is a satellite-based messaging system with built-in GPS capabilities built by Qualcomm. It has a small computer screen and keyboard and is tied into the truck’s computer. It allows trucking companies to track where the driver is at, monitor the truck, and send and receive messages with the driver – similar to email.
