Yeah Jammer the wind and rain has kicked my butt today. Driving down I-65 was a nightmare. Especially in a day cab. The wing just kept smacking the sides of the tractor (makes sense since it's so light). I toned down on my speed just a smidge. It helped somewhat. But glad my trainer and I made it back safe. Be careful out there man. Papa Pig I swear it feels like I do lmao. And definitely getting my backing. I did really good with parking my trailer at the terminal after coming back from the customer. Took me 10mins to get it in it's spot (usually it takes me 20-25mins to back in it's spot). My trainer was very impressed which gave me confidence. Hopefully tomorrow morning will be another great day☺️☺️

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

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.

This has been a crazy week for sure. Left this morning around 3:30am and it was pouring down rain and dark as a burnt bbq smoke sausage!! Did I mention it was extremely windy on I-69 going south to Columbus,IN. But got back safe and sound.

You’re probably doing it right Anne. She’s not showing up on the tracker at all.

It means she has the function disabled on her device (it's optional), or it means a member hasn't logged on in several days.
