I was just thinking about some of the screen names on TT. If we were given the option to change our original screen name, what would be your new choice? Most of us picked our screen identity when we first started, I think. So now, after some time, would you change it to something else? Or would you suggest a better name for someone else? And it's no fair to pick on Rainy.

Hi Bruce,

I started my career with Piney for the NJ Pinelands area then switched to NJ Runaway when I moved to Florida and finally to Navypoppop for my stint in Navy and becoming a grandfather. I might have to find another as I am now retired and driving a 5th wheel RV.

I earned that screen name the hard way. It was the bane on my existence in training & testing. Failed my road test twice cause I forgot it & stalled the truck without recovering & impeding traffic. Badge of honor at this point.

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

It’s a catchy screen name I’m sure by now you have outgrown!

...or like most of us you crossed-over to the “darkside” of autoshift transmissions. Baiting Raptor for a comment!

Every now and then I reach for the stick... old habits diehard.

Like you, I don't have to worry about for now in this auto shift. Don't know about a local or regional gig if I find one that'll pay well & keep me in the southeast.

McLane declined my application. I'm sure since most of those companies are slip seat, I'll have to battle that little beast again. Ha!

Regional:

Regional Route

Usually refers to a driver hauling freight within one particular region of the country. You might be in the "Southeast Regional Division" or "Midwest Regional". Regional route drivers often get home on the weekends which is one of the main appeals for this type of route.

Btw, thanks for the vote of confidence. Took time off the board to focus on getting the job done. Soon I'll be debt free & saving to buy a home in Florida. Baby steps! smile.gif
