How do you reefer drivers sleep? Lol. Sitting in a Loves and a Reefer decided to park in between two of us flatbed trucks. That is the most annoying sound ever. Lol

LOL! Try sleeping on the -03 Level of a Navy aircraft carrier, directly below the landing area during flight operations for many years. The flight deck is literally 15 inches above the top bunks.

Reefer noises? Pretty tame in comparison, but I guess you'll get used to it.

Finally had to quit Prime after 21 months because of that reefer noise messing up my sleep, went dry van with night, same money, more "normal" hour delivery times, no more wasted hours getting trailer wash outs, and many more quality of life improvements, and no more disrupted sleep

Dry Van:

A trailer or truck that that requires no special attention, such as refrigeration, that hauls regular palletted, boxed, or floor-loaded freight. The most common type of trailer in trucking.

There are some folks that love hyenas, too.

Some people do enjoy the noise and vibration while sleeping. I'm one of them. Think about it like sleeping next to a 2,000 pound housecat purring through the amplifiers of a heavy metal concert sound system.

You're right about the aircraft noise. I wasn't as close as you were but our barracks was one block for the runway. But I like the reefer noise puts me to sleep in seconds. But my new job will be different, so no reefer noise. Oh well
