Get the Truckers Path app

Good morning all, and once again thank you for the ideas, experiences and suggestions. I can see that after my licensing and training there will continue to be numerous nuances I will need to learn as well. I hope I am paired with a trainer that does not mind questions. ... It makes total sense to simply walk across a street for personal items vs unhooking. Sometimes I wonder about my thinking!

Big Scott, had to laugh, the road atlas is the only item I have actually purchased. I suppose I am “old school” with a touch of apprehension relying solely on an electronic device. Besides there is a wealth of information included.

Grumpy, I will look into the app. I have plenty of time and numerous other items on the list prior to my need for that type of assistance. The only other one I have ear-marked to look into is the Trucker-Trip Planning app. I am in no position to comment on either with the exception Trucker-Trip is a one time purchase. For my wife & I, those “little” monthly/annual fees have a tendency to add up without us realizing it, and when we do, ... well it’s an interesting conversation.

I hope everyone has a safe and profitable day.

Danny

At the White's travel center in Raphine West Virginia (the largest truck stop on the east coast) you can shop for everything there from produce to underwear, after shopping, go get a haircut and then go see a movie all in the same travel center.

White's Petro is in VIRGINIA, not West Virginia.

I stand corrected! Sorry I had been bouncing around Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Virginia, the Carolinas, Georgia, Tennessee for a month eventually everything blurred into one giant state
