PackRat, I don't recall us ever having a driver from J & R Schugel in here. There was a kid in my truck driving school class who wanted to work for them, but they wouldn't hire him at the time. I hope it exceeds your expectations.

I'm the only one, as far as I know. Thanks for the well wishes!

Dispatcher, Fleet Manager, Driver Manager

The primary person a driver communicates with at his/her company. A dispatcher can play many roles, depending on the company's structure. Dispatchers may assign freight, file requests for home time, relay messages between the driver and management, inform customer service of any delays, change appointment times, and report information to the load planners.

Not declined. Remember, I corrected that statement. What happened was they always had a several month wait for their "finishing school" in my neck of the woods.

And not enamored so much... Just love the fact that they make you say "I didn't even know they came in that/those colors!"

Green is tasteful!

Yes, J & R Schugel out of New Ulm, MN. I went through orientation a couple weeks ago. Back driving 48 states OTR again.

Why the change sir? I was looking at some crete dedicated stuff. Any advice?

double-quotes-end.png

Well, I came off OTR to drive dedicated WM out of the Cheyenne DC for six months, then was informed I could not drive OTR for Crete any longer after I had put in the six months. I told Crete that actually I would not drive for them any longer, PERIOD.

Great company with dopey management. Even getting things in writing means nothing with them. I won't go back there a third time.

So that's a no on crete dedicated then?

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

It's a no for me because I was told I could try it out for a while, then go back OTR if I wanted. After six months, their word was no good, and the paper it was written on was worthless, too. Essentially I was locked into driving the dedicated account there, or nothing at all. I went on home and resigned.

They may have something that works for you, though. I'm happy with my new brand.

My newest ride. Parked in Greensboro waiting on Laura and Monty to show up.

That's nice, but what's with all that extra space behind the door?

double-quotes-end.png

Luggage rack, extra storage, bedroom suite, jacuzzi, changing room, eat-in kitchen.

Perty. I love my kenny. I think they are pretty roomy inside. Congrats on the new job, hopefully its a good fit. Bummed that we never ran across each other at the WM DC up there. Ive been in the south for a while now, havent seen WY in a month. Dont miss it.

Was driving in rain across Illinois on I-64 last night and in a space of a mile it turned to ice! So I hit a rest area just outside of Mount Vernon and parked for the night.

This is what I woke up to. Had to use a crowbar that a friend gave me to knock the ice off the wiper blades. Looks like it's going to be a fun day getting across IL and MO to the receiver just south of KCMO 😝

The arrow is a guy that passed me and other big trucks like we were standing still! About 20 or 25 miles up the road, there he is in the median needing to be towed out.

On I-70 at the off ramp at Foristell for the TA and Mr Fuel. Several vehicles involved.

About 4-5 miles up the road. Everyone is in a hurry!
