Hey, I like reading this thread, too. I'm making my way through the training diaries and this daily activity flow is a nice contrast, and again different from the "spot points" of experience more typically described in other threads. What a nice resource, all these multi-dimensional previews of the trucking life..... smile.gif

Oftentimes things are written, a few here by you, PackRat and elsewhere, that I don't understand - usually just unfamiliar terminology. Some of that gets resolved as I keep reading. Just would be posting a lot more than I do with small questions! Guess I could let some accumulate and ask from time to time; I know the help is here.

There's still marginal value for me in reading about engine and mechanical stuff without access to a truck to understand better what's being discussed. (Good for your initiative, Rob D., in pursuing those ride-alongs!) Pictures are great! appreciate that so many post these. I know there's a future time for that kind of learning.

All in all, much of what's written is thoughtful, comprehensive and often entertaining. It ain't school but it's a soft and sure build of my general background knowledge. Just telling the choir what they know they sing but yes, piping up here from the peanut gallery...... tho I'm usually better behaved than a typical peanut gallery, lol

Was reading and couldn't help notice this.

Got up at the TA, --> pro-trump<--, then rolling around 2315. Rolled about a half mile to get fuel across the freeway at the Love's.

Was that intentional, or a hilarious auto-correct ??

Auto-corrected me as usual, not making sense within the context of the subject. I usually use the "preview", and check it again for a second time, but many times the errors get through despite my best intentions.

This phone is so smart, it seems to know what I'm listening to on the radio. That was a funny typo that got through there, though!

Aha! There's one less that I'll have to ask about, not understanding that esoteric trucker terminology....

While on the subject of semantics...

There is a difference between being committed and NEEDING TO BE COMMITTED!

smile.gif

But is it possible to be both?

Ask Rob D.!

Thought I did!

Though, then again, it was a bit rhetorical at that!
