Still havent tested yet but Im ok with that. Delivered to our 2 stops in Wisconsin then got another beer load down to Texas we'll deliver this afternoon then turn around and head up to Fulton NY to hopefully get delivered Monday by midnight for a 5500 mile week.

Ill take those miles over testing out for my own truck if testing means waiting around a terminal awhile.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Great week man, if you are testing out in cartersville with Steve just chat with him so you both can relax. Jack is pretty relaxed anyway. Congratulations!

If you’re going to Trenton terminal , you’ll definitely need a good supply of patience, because better than 70% of the time I went there, the damned trains were parked across the street blocking it. For hours sometimes! Hated going in there. What do you mean by the question though? Are you talking about supplies, clothes and gear?

I dont notice trains since i grew up right by tracks thankfully. However the gun range/bar next door is annoying. And yes i said gun range / bar.

But yes what gear do I need.... As of now i have nothing, lol

I like a truck GPS, CB, food for two weeks, two cases water, assorted other food, Lysol wipes, band aids, aspirin, sinus pills, cough drops, alka seltzer chewables, body wipes, toiletries, ziplock bags in different sizes, paper bowls and plates, forks, knives, and spoons too. Bring one pair of good boots, tennis shoes, one jacket, one heavy coat, one set coveralls, one good sleeping bag rated at zero or below. Winter ain’t over yet. Pants, undies and shirts for ten days, several towels of different sizes, roll paper towels, two rolls of toilet paper, two hoodie sweat shirts, sleeping pants, two comfortable pillows, three blankets, sheets, spray bottle of windex. Get a bunch of extra wiper blades, light bulbs, glad hand seals, trailer door seals, cans of oil, washer fluid, and anti-freeze at the shop. Get several pairs of decent gloves. I use the orange and grey heavy gloves they sell at the truck stops for most everything. Current pair has lasted three years. Every chain truck stop you hit, get the rewards cards. Want me to keep going?
