She's currently touring the country in her Freightliner "Bed & Breakfast" suite. Rumor has it that she has a Jacuzzi tub concealed under the bed. smile.gif

Not going to lie sometimes these setups make me jealous and wishing I had more than a day cab.

Day Cab:

A tractor which does not have a sleeper berth attached to it. Normally used for local routes where drivers go home every night.

Debating whether I want to have a sandwich, cereal or walk into the terminal and microwave something? Cereal and sandwich I can prepare and eat on the truck, I can also warm up something but that means dragging stuff out to get to the hot lunch box appliance. I have been deciding what I want to do for the last several hours???

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Yea I work for a company that has me home every weekend but I’m in the truck 5 days and only home 2. So aside from my wife and kids the truck is more my home than not.

Sometimes I avoid cooking because my crockpot and hot box are under the bunk. Does everyone’s bunk weigh a ton, or is it just mine? I have a 3” memory foam pad on my mattress, and I wonder if that is why mine is so heavy. Every time I stick my head in I kind of expect to get my head trapped in it. What a way to go.

I forced myself to dig out the crockpot the other night and tossed in a pork shoulder (ham, basically) the size of both my fists, a bunch of vegetables and some chicken broth. Made a pretty decent soup.

Get an old broomstick, measure the distance of the open bunk, cut it to length for a prop rod.
