Michael is home on his break, leaving early tomorrow morning, but he shared a story I hadn't heard before that I found interesting.

He said that when his last team driver (I'll call him "Roger") at CR England was in training he was being trained by "Alice" and another trainee "Jose" was with them. Roger was driving and stopped at a truck stop and Jose moved to the top bunk to sleep and after a while Roger and Alice went in the truck stop to grab something quick and then came back to the truck and drove off. They got down the road a ways before they got an angry phone call from Jose cussing them out for leaving him behind at the truck stop. They had assumed he was still sleeping in the top bunk and laughed at themselves as they drove back to get Jose.

Anybody hear of someone accidentally being left behind?

By the way, it is against CR England policy for someone to sleep in the top bunk while the truck is in motion.

Harvey, I guess I shouldn’t laugh at someone’s misfortunes, but that story is hilarious. Poor Jose, probably crushed his ego, lol.

You always hear drivers saying keep the shiny side up but we had a driver do the opposite yesterday morning. It’s plastered all over the news and Facebook so I don’t mind sharing it here. His truck decided to play dead on the side of the road. I take that turn at no more than 10mph EMPTY… he was fully loaded going a good bit faster in the pouring rain, caught the curb making a left and over she went.

Lesson here is to always take it slow in a sharp turn and be prepared for the load to shift especially when you’re hauling heavy liquid like diesel. He’s in the hospital and super lucky to be alive as the cab was almost crushed flat on that Western Star.

Oh my gosh!! I hope he pulls through okay.

Yesterday as I was going through Ogallala, NE, just east of town, a bullrack was laid over on its side and they were getting the cows out and moving them to a gooseneck livestock trailer. None of my pictures turned out and I looked for some news but didn't find anything yet.

This happened earlier in the week in my home town of New Bern, NC, on the Trent River bridge. The driver survived, still in the hospital. The truck was not speeding, but thought to have been at or near the speed limit, which is 60 at this point, during heavy rain, tanker was empty.

Hydroplaning right off that bridge would be my guess, especially with an empty.

I can confirm it's not packrat. That I know of but I'm 99% he never did that. But I am 100% sure someone else did. Lol

Lookin at millis? Day cab stuff outta trenton? Or for heartland, they got day Cabs out of columbus. I'm sure millis might too, the day cab side of the company is a mystery to us all what those dark siders do.

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.
