I do believe this is a Troll, however, if I am mistaken, here is my advice. Drive your own car, rent a car, ride a bike, buy an airline ticket, charter an airplane, take Amtrack, your possibilities are unlimited. But one word of advice. Lose your d bag attitude or make sure any of the above are round trip!

Cost of one way ticket from where ever you call home via Dirty Dog. $200.00

$4000.00-$7500.00. Worth of CDL training on an apprenticeship program. 12 months give or take.

Realizing nobody is kissing your ass, Priceless.

Thinking it was remotely below your standards to do as thousands have done before you, then post that on a trucking website???

CDL:

Commercial Driver's License (CDL)

A CDL is required to drive any of the following vehicles:

  • Any combination of vehicles with a gross combined weight rating (GCWR) of 26,001 or more pounds, providing the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the vehicle being towed is in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any single vehicle with a GVWR of 26,001 or more pounds, or any such vehicle towing another not in excess of 10,000 pounds.
  • Any vehicle, regardless of size, designed to transport 16 or more persons, including the driver.
  • Any vehicle required by federal regulations to be placarded while transporting hazardous materials.

Tbh i would avoid a greyhoud ride like my life depended on it. Im way too tall with legs too long to fold onto one of those seats. I took a train ride once across the country and was ready to end it all 3 hours in. I dont fly for the same reason id rather drive. Now if there was no choice then of course suck it up butter cup eat some bananas to avoid leg cramps and off we go. If this makes me elitist oh well, pass the grey poupon.

Noob, you are not elitist because you avoid the bus for logical reasons. But the OP is avoiding the bus for elitist reasons not in line with logic. What happens when he judges the shipping and receiving personnel as being beneath his dignity?

Sounds good. Still want my grey poupon though.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

I didn't ride on a greyhound for school or anything since I lived close by but my experience with greyhound is nothing but good other then the long ride, but I never experienced anything bad.

The vast majority of truckers are far below my standards.

Ok, so this proves that we do indeed have a troll. We won't be approving anything else from this person.

Seriously, how sad and boring is your life when you consider trolling a trucking forum as entertainment? Obviously the joke is on you. Well, that's obvious to us, anyhow.
