Hey guys not to long ago I said I was thinking about western Express. Well things changed and I went with cargo transporters. Just did my first week with the trainer and he was cool. Started off with sum small va back to shelby, nc. Wed we was off to Massachusetts. We teamed up for Thursday and today. I drove from Massachusetts all the way to va and the experience was fun and I enjoyed it. It was a great week and looking forward to what Sunday is gonna bring us.

What's going on guys. Its been a while. Well I graduated and have been upgraded to a solo driver. I have been out on the road solo going into my 4th week. It has definitely been fun and different. I have been having my learning curves, but its all been dope. The hardest day so far was when I locked my keys in the truck lol. If u wanna hear the story lemme know. Everything else has been fun tho. I learned always add a extra hour for Massachusetts traffic and definitely 2 if u driving thru NY.

Nope, I've done it twice myself. Once in my second truck and another when I got my new truck. I kept reminding myself to zip tie a key outside somewhere, but I kept pushing it off. Then I had to go to the bathroom really bad, and started to close the door, I noticed my mistake as it was closing and tried to grab it but no luck. Paid out of pocket to have it unlocked the second time.

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.

Ha! I have to use the keys to lock my doors. Shut the locked door and it will unlock! No lock outs for me!

I have always had a spare key. I don't want to be calling my DL and tell them to send out a Locksmith. Plus if you go to Love's they have a lockout kit Need to be smarter than the tractor your driving

Even in my car - have a spare. Mine has a keyfob and no key to start. Spare key ziptied to spare tire. Spare fob in an RFID blocking bag, taped up under "somewhere". I can get in, retrieve the fob and get down the road.

I have done it, luckly it was in my yard and i had to walk in and ask to borrow a key which gets a lot of smart comments from everyone.

My brother managed to lock my keys in my personal car with it running on my driveway. Unfortunately I do not have spare for it as it is a push botton start and like $350 to get one made. That was a fun $65 to spend.
