Gosh. I guess I'll start it again tomorrow.

I'm glad folks are reading it, especially those either considering driving, or those just beginning OTR.

Stay tuned....

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.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

My vote is- YES. I just finished reading 24 pages, your entrIes. I liked how you deal with trailer problems- one was trouble shooting trailer air leak, and your persistence- sometimes multiple phone calls.

Gosh. I guess I'll start it again tomorrow.

Here's the great start to a 34 Hour Reset for me at the TA in Boise. Obviously this guy was good at backing, too. Like the guy I tried to help out last night...

Third time in 12 months I've been backed into while legally parked at a truck stop by a "professional driver" that could barely speak English. All three were Volvos, too.
