I still keep in touch with my trainer and a while back he told me a funny story similar to Turtles.

After I got off his truck he was paired up with a young female student. At some point she needed some home time while he ran solo. He was waiting at a truck stop in her home town one evening waiting for her to be dropped back off at the truck so they could get back on the road. He was sitting in the driver's seat waiting when a vehicle pulled up infront of his truck and a female occupant waved to him. In the poor light he assumed it was his student and waved back, then unlocked the doors. The female jumped up in the passenger seat and began undoing her shirt. He then realised this was not his student... He said he was so caught off guard he could barely come up with the words to tell her to stop and leave. She then started asking for some gas money at least. He threw a $20 bill at her and said to take it and please go.

Probably the easiest $20 she made

Haha! Perhaps it was Todd. Although I suspect if it were, he wouldn't have left so easily. He would've instead launched into an aimless diatribe as to why he felt entitled to the right to enter my truck. Cuz you know...that's what he did in the Army or something.

No, he was working another Flying hook in West Memphis last night.

So after meeting up with RealDiehl and Spaceman Spiff the other day, I was walking out to the truck with my student and said to him "Those two guys are from a forum I'm a part of."

He said "I knew it, I thought I recognized you from when I was researching this career. You're that guy Turtle from Trucking Truth, right?'

Sigh... obscure anonymity fades with the ever increasing popularity of TT.

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

I know exactly what you mean! Being a famous celebrity kinda sucks. At least for me it does. Every time I try to go out, or doing something normal like I used to do, that’s when the chaos begins. Groupies, autograph seekers, the paparazzi, stalkers....It’s just endless. I long for my life before all this began. rofl-1.gifrofl-1.gif

Obviously your student recognized me as Spaceman Spiff right?
